Tony Daniel is man of wealth and taste, my friends!

Ironically, within Sir Tony Daniel's response, the term "douchebag" is sexist too. That's a sanitary device that women use for hygiene or medical reasons, correct?

In his slight defense though, while "Friendzone" implies a misogynistic idea, it has a less sexist cousin--the devastation a guy (or a woman) experiences when he (or she) really likes a girl (or boy), but the girl or boy doesn't regard him as dating material.

Sally: Bob, you're really sweet. I love confiding in you about my dates with real men.
Bob: You're the center of my universe. You're my destiny. I can't get you out of my thoughts.
Sally: Do you mind if I torture you for awhile, confiding in you how frustrated I am that the Captain of the University Football Team won't return my phone calls?

And yes, not to be sexist, this can go both ways, with a woman who has an enormous crush on a man, and he declines to see her as anything more than his favorite kid sister.

The difference between this and "Friendzoning", however, is that the "rebuffed courter" is legitimately infatuated with the woman (or man) he/she is courting. The fact that the other party "just wants to be friends" is emotionally devastating.

It sounds like with "Friendzoning", the guy (specifically a guy) was trying to get the girl into bed, and is mildly bummed that she deflected his advances.

The term douchebag is sexist, because it's an item women use?

Women don't use urinal cakes, they're pretty much solely used by men. If I call Jude Terror a lemon scented urinal cake, am I being sexist?

That's social misconception that all men are after is the pussy. While it's the case 99.99% of the time that the man is after the pussy, he's probably after a meaningful something or other. This is a common thing that people assign to men and I think it contributes to the idiot pandering of internet feminists.

Men like sex. Women also like sex. Humans are sexual beings by nature.

Just because a guy goes the length to impress a woman and gets "friend zoned", it doesn't mean he's after the pussy. If anything, he's more likely to be after a relationship with the girl. The friend zone implies that the girl spends a lot of her time bitching about her boyfriends and the dude believes he can be a better boyfriend than her other boyfriends. Sometimes sex is a side-note in the entire equation.

If you called a woman a urinal cake, then that would be sexist.

Wait, that can't be right, Kebster. If you're right, that sounds like a sexist assumption... :P

If while you're calling him that he's writhing and moaning "fuck yeah .. fuck yeah", then no.
That's just fucking hot ! :twisted:

I asked my friend, who is studying "Women's Studies" in college, and she said this is really honestly a huge topic among feminists right now.

Really?

Are feminists really that daft?
