Random annoying thing

I really, really hate the term "friendzone"
Even if it didn't have sexist implications, it just sounds really douchey to me.

Like what's wrong with just being friends with someone? Why is it considered negative? If you're friendly to a girl, and she considers you a friend, how is that different than the expected outcome? Being friendly to someone just in hopes that they'll date you, is like being friends with someone just because they have money; it's totally shallow, and it's not cool. And if you call a girl a bitch for "friendzoning" you, then you sir, are the bitch.
Learn to handle rejection, and learn to appreciate friendship, don't be a sexist douchebag.

P.S., Just because I draw a lot of adult material, many of which with female characters does not mean that I think women are objects, I simply appreciate the female form. Do not confuse art and reality
Real women are not things, they aren't fictional, and they aren't there for your entertainment.

If a guy who draws porn for a living can understand this, there's no reason why the average person can't.

Friendzoning 'is' a thing, but its mostly used by guys who've had very bad experiences,  or guys who were just pretending to be friends with a girl just to get her in the sack later.

My guess is that 'most' straight guys have trouble thinking of a male/female relationship that 'doesn't' end with sex.

Yeah, it's a shame though, it kind of undermines the meaning of the relationship as a whole when that's the mindset they have going into it, whether it becomes romantic or not

I've started to hear the term 'friendzone', only when i've got like 15 years old (8 years ago). And it totally come from America. Russia have never used such terms. Guy could be a friend with a girl without any second thought and that was normal. An UNnormal thing was - exactly, to become a friend with girl and hope to get laid. I don't know, what happening with the world and people's minds, but i don't like it. They become twisted and not into a good way..

You do know that anyone can be friendzoned? not just dudes. actually the idea of girls can only do it is sexist on it own right.

Also the whole friendzone thing is that someone wants the relationship to go the next level, not just be friends and, be bf or gf with them.

The point is - that's it kinda stupid. Before, if you tell the girl or she tells you, that eighter of you, want relationship be upgraded from friends to couple, but any of two of you reject it and preffer to stay friends, it wasn't played as something bad.
''Hey, you're still friends! It hurts abit, but not big deal!''
Now, the point of being set to be friends after offering a 'higher' tipe of relationship has got a 'black mark'.. -_-
And i don't know - WHAT THE HELL FOR?!
