which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing
yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever
That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.
When analogies fail but then actually are super truthful.
I think someone needs to put a fedora on the seal
I’m a fedora wearing friendzoned nerd male who is perfectly content with being single, respectful to women on and offline, and getting really sick of being stereotyped.
Friendzoned =/ perfectly content with being single. You’re missing a huge point of friendship if you think that it has to include a romantic/sexual connection.
I apologize. I don’t think I understand the term, then. How would you define friendzoned?
To clarify what I meant, by ‘content with being single’ I mean I am making no effort to find a relationship, and am not afraid of the possibility of never finding a relationship.
What I meant by friendzoned is I have friends (both men and women) who, if they showed an interest in pursuing a romantic or sexual relationship, I would reciprocate.
I felt compelled to say something because I think generalization of ‘friendzoned nerd males’ (how did the fedora get throw in? XD I never understood that) as an enemy group is an overreaction. Firstly, let me say that I understand and acknowledge the points of feminism. The is an unjust, institutional bias favoring men in the patriarchy that we currently live in, and we should work to change it. I say that in an attempt to show that I sympathize, and that I try to be an ally to the cause in my daily life.
I think it is unfair to generalize friendzoned/single (sorry, I know this hinges on a point above that is still open for discussion. this is a placeholder), nerdy males as universally feeling entitled to romantic/sexual relations. For every obnoxious mens-rights idiot that never got over his highschool rejections are nine nerdy, single, and otherwise unobtrusive guys who are potential allies to the women’s rights cause.
The derogatory nature of this comment thread, in it’s attempt to criticize sexist, entitled idiots, has inadvertently excluded all men who identify as ‘nerds’. That’s, like, a lot of men.
I’ve got more to say if you’re willing to hear it, but I’ll reblog and let you respond here. I hope I haven’t completely misunderstood something, or my perspective as a male has prevented me from fully seeing your point of view. If so, I am open to discussing that.
The term “friendzone” is used to denote a relationship where someone has “demoted you” to just being a friend. It’s not an ambivalent term. It isn’t a take it or leave it situation.
There’s also the issue of characterizing yourself as the true victim in this situation, but we can leave that alone for a minute because somehow you’ve existed on the Internet without having it be made clear to you the negative connotation that “friendzone” holds for the men that claim they have been “put there”.
