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.

exactly, x. Its not gender specific, and it doesn't exclusively imply that an individual "deserves" something, but rather simply "desires" something. But honestly, these days almost anything can be, and is considered sexist.

Since Geoff Johns decided Superman and Wonder Woman hooking up in Justice League was more important than anything that happened in either Supes or Diana's books, this is kind of an useless argument.

Maybe if bitches stopped kicking nice guys like me to the curb and stopped dating cheating douchebags then this shit wouldn't exist.

There's a girl I've been after for a while who is always complaining about her jock boyfriend, but I've been there with her for years and she's NEVER even looked at me.

Are you sure this jock boyfriend isn't just you in your alter ego, Clark?

"Nice guys" don't call women bitches.

Edit: Oh wait, were you being tongue-in-cheek?

I pure stayed in the Friend Zone in my early 20s. Shoulda rented some space there.

Punchy made the point. That shit works all ways. Internet Feminism is just fucking idiotic.
