I disagree that it's misogynistic, but I can see how it would come across that way when spun the way it was explained above. But I've "friend zoned" girls before, it just means (to me anyways): You meet someone, how will it go? Get to know them, find out there is nothing there in the attraction/romance department and they simply stay friends instead of anything more, or maybe the other person comes to that conclusion before you do, then you've been 'friend zoned'. Just b/c someone decides things won't go further and the other person feels rejected b/c maybe they were hoping it would, doesn't mean they think something was owed to them to begin with. I get disappointed when a lot of stuff happens, doesn't mean I think I "deserve" everything I want. Sometimes it seems like there are folks that sit around and think up ways everything can be offensive, but maybe I'm just not too easily offended, idk, or maybe someone that thinks that way has been through some shit b/c of it and doesn't like the term. Hard for me to get behind that one though.
