Just because I don't go out with my friends every weekend does not make me anti-social.
I'm not anti-social if I go long periods without talking.
Uh, that's exactly what people are like with me. If I don't make a habit of going out with friends or if I'm a little more withdrawn than others, it's automatcally assumed I have some sort of socialising disorder.

It was much worse in high school when people made out I didn't have any friends because I was quiet. There are people who can be really quiet in public but completely confident and outgoing out of school/work hours.

I got one. I see the one in hollywood all the time.

Just because a man hasnt dated or has had a girlfriend in a while doesn't mean that he is gay.

I havent had a girl friend in...... well lets just say its been a while, but I am not gay, I just cant seem to find anyone.

Just because a guy isn't Casanova doesnt mean he's gay. Sometimes they just stink with women, or have really high standards. there are plenty of other reasons.

And just because a person is single does not mean they suck with relationships (e.g. sitcom stereotype), some people are happy that way.

yeah thats true two. One of the reasons Im single at the moment it because this isnt a good time in my life for dating. Thats not to say I wouldnt if I met the right person. Im just not looking at the moment

Tell that to my uncle and cousin. But they're too ignorant. I'm single, it doesn't mean I'm a lesbian. I have never had a boyfriend and I for one don't give a damn if I have someone or not. My cousin (who's 21) is telling me "OMG if you go to college you should like try to look for someone and date guys every weekend, you know like someone in your major". Seriously...EVERY WEEKEND? Would I even have time for that in college considering I want to finish up my education...give me a break.

I know the feeling just because I don't usually date, I'm not gay, I'll be perfectly honest I suck at dealing with women. I have tried going on dates but I general end up doing or saying something stupid and that's pretty much the end of that. Also if I don't go out every weekend that I am anti social, I have to deal with people all the time a work during the weeks, so when the weekend comes I like to have my alone time.

I like dating, it's fun, but I take it at my own pace... nothing too serious, you know? Lol, trust me you get plenty of slack no matter what side of the fence you're on... :?

people and shows that stereotypes feminists as being hard as nails man hating bitches who want to castrate the male sex.

Seriously, when ever I see a "feminist" type portrayed on TV it's almost always negative. They are normally portrayed as loud mouthed, pinched, ugly women who have who are portrayed as being bitter for not having enough sex, or over bearing shrews that make their "husbands" the care takers and couldn't care less about children and family.

Seriously, what the hell! Why can't a feminist character on TV ever be portrayed as being simply assertive, strong minded and genuinely powerful in her own femininity and self as woman who can be tough when she has to and warm and maternal as well?

Agreed, I support women's rights and all. Not all feminists are evil, crazy, anti-men. Today I was criticized for saying how I like the idea of having the man stay at home once in a while (because my dad is sort of a mr mom), it's so stupid.
