Honestly, people like Rothide, Tragically Unhip, starkruzr, ChastMastr, and quite a few others are (almost) exactly the reason why I am so afraid of 'males' today, and why I would never choose to interact with certain kinds of males, and why I automatically become oblivious to flirtatious and sexual comments from the few of my male friends (maybe two so far) who dared pulled that on me, and generally shut them out of my life.

Due to my selective friending, My male friends *may* be interested in me, but they've never crossed my strict boundaries (despite me not telling them my boundaries)because it is not in their nature to do so, OR

1. I am (definitely) not their type
2. They are highly devout (and the religion puts extremely strict restrictions on their sexual behaviour)
3. They are gay
4. I'm too old/too young
5. They respect that I'm in a relationship
6. They are in a relationship themselves, (non-open)
7. They get the sense that I *don't* respond well to flirtatious and sexual comments. They may have tried that once or twice, but seeing my non-response, they *stop*

And walla! ALL my male friends except my boyfriend are in the 'friend zone', where they may have romantic/sexual feelings for me, but are *man* enough to recognize and respect a woman's wish to want to stay friends.

The friend zone is also a place where anybody can get out of, if sparks begin to develop, or...
_________________________________________________________

I love Chris Rock's stand up routine about 'Platonic Friends'.

You know one cool thing about women, women get to have platonic friends. "He's my pal, he's my bud, he's my pla-ton-ic friend...I love him like a brother, he's my bud, my platonic friennd."

Men don't have platonic friends. We just have women we haven't fucked -yet-..."as soon as I figure this out, I'm in there!".

I mean, we got some platonic friends, we go "Oh no I got some but they all by accident - every platonic friend i got is some women I was trying to fuck, i made a wrong turn somewhere, and ended up in the friend zone - Oh No! I'm in the Friend Zone!"."

"Women keep their platonic friends forever why? Cuz you never know. You know what a platonic friend is to a woman? It's like a dick in a glass case. In case of emergency, break open glass"

Whoa whoa whoa, what did I say that offended you Dawn? The only thing I pointed out is that there is zones that change people against their will like the transgender zone (by the way did the patriarchy make that zone too...) or keep selective people out... (kinda like a club bouncer, but seemingly genetic or thought based), the matrix like mind changing device the devil used to engrave his teaching to men (which the patriarchy used to do the same thing only saying their message), the patriarchy that even admits they are blatantly radical, and are putting up the friend zones, Monique's seemingly distantancing relation with Slick (to the point of just ignoring him or blowing him off with signage rather than saying anything to him), and Slicks sudden character change within less than 2 months (we've seen Slick like 5 times since the Virgin/Whore comic, and he suddenly thinks that Monique would be fine with someone saying "wanna bone?").

I don't feel I gave of the aura of men having the right to do anything they wish to women. I just pointed out the problems Im having with the comic.

Though interesting, if these magic "zones" can be created by anyone, can the patriarchy make "sexist Zones" or "Porn Zones" where anyone who walks into one acts exactly like they want them? I'm not saying I want to see this, but still, tit for tat. Course if its just the Patriarchy making these... and only they can make these... Powers as the Plot Demands?

Also even as a male, I share those bullet points you put up (only gender switched of course). In fact if people examined me, radical feminists would probably think I'm a "Nice Guy(tm). When in fact Im the complete opposite, Im generally nice to women and want to be friends with them, I don't expect sex though... Im terrified that they will find out I am attracted to them and then consider me disgusting for it. I pretty much know Im not worth it. And I know 'pitty party' but its the truth... women can and should do better than me.

Agreed, that's very arrogant... I have platonic friends, not many of them women, mostly because not a lot of women interested in videogames and RPG's in my area.

But I don't think "I can get that..." I think, "wow, would love to talk to her but too painfully awkward to."

And, in the case of the Porn Zone, literally! Laughing

Thank you, thank you, I'll be here all week. Try the salad!

This really confuses me, Dawn:

So... despite your positive experience with all of your male friends who aren't your boyfriend... you're afraid of males today. Wha???

And fortunately, entirely wrong. Yuck. What a horrible worldview. I've heard other people espouse things like that, but happily they're people I have no interest in hanging out with.

This is why we can't have nice things in the Comic Sub-forum.

Nah,Pebbles gets in just fine.I think to enter friend zone you must not have thoughts of sex or romance like Kcils.

I am also totally confused, unless Dawn is saying she is afraid of men who enjoy things called 'Wolverotica', and have tasteful nude barbarian posters on their wall?

oh well, at least it was a Chris Rock gag that doesn't really make any sense in the context instead of some horseshit facebook chain letter ridiculousness.

Nice Dawn. You've managed to develop a phobia for billions of people on earth. Surprised you got a boyfriend at all with such a phobia. Was he originally gay?
MANPHOBIA!!! For when regular phobias just aren't gritty enough, get the MANLY VERSION!!! (What would be the actual word for this? Androsphobia?)

Ps. Why is ChastMastr on that list? Why am I not on this list?

In speaking of the manly version, guess what Ktern and Dogen?
its time for..........

MAN CAMP 2012: MANPOCALYPSE!

Tomorrows session: how to make sure women around you don't develop man-phobia. Tips will include: make sure to be born without a penis. Accepting that because you are a man you are cursed for life. Also, learning how to never view someone as attractive ever again. Finally, we will cover accepting the fact that though its apparently fine for women to view you as a commodity for a last case "I'm horny/all my friends are dating so I don't want to look bad" scenario, daring to admit you want to date someone means you are the scum of the earth.

On a side note, as someone who actually was there when radical feminism (believe me, the "radical feminism" of today is effing weak compared to the late 60's early 70's era) [in the radical side of the feminist movement, which at that time was actually decently popular] 1- there was a general antipathy towards romantic relationships and this 2- still keeps on to this day in some feminist circles (my daughter thought a woman's study class would be interesting, boy did we have a few laughs when she got home from college). Its a natural offshoot of a view that men inherently need to dominate so any relationship with them is by its very nature unequal.
