Single Men are Discriminated Against…

If you are a single guy, you’ve probably seen this in your own life…

If you are perpetually single, you might find that your male friends pair off either into marriages or serious relationships with women. Slowly but surely, you will lose contact, occassionaly getting an invite to go out and grab a drink or go to a BBQ. If your friend’s GF or wife thinks you are “decent,” she might try to introduce you to one of her single friends. If she thinks you are a “dirtbag,” you can be sure she is nagging to your friend behind your back and telling her single friends what a loser you are and there is a reason you are single.

In employment, being single might make you “desirable” to employers for entry level positions-they might expect 24/7 availability because you don’t have to plan your schedule around child care. However, the higher ranking positions have married men occupying them. Single guys aren’t welcome in the “ole boys club.” How many President’s were bachelors? One or two maybe?

When I was younger, I was virgin shamed. Comments like “You couldn’t get laid in a whorehouse with a hand full of fifties” and “What,are you some kind of closet case?” weren’t uncommon. As I’m aging (though a bit better than grey beard Roosh) the comments are more along the lines of, “Well, if you really tried, you could find a good women, there are lot’s of ladies dying to meet a decent guy, you just can’t expect a Playboy Playmate.” “I bet Charlie Sheen is your hero.” “Guys like you are interested in only one thing, when are you going to grow up and realize women have so much more to offer.”

Even with all the discrimination, though, I don’t think I’ve got it all that bad. Remember the comments at the now defunct The-Spearead? If you don’t, I suppose you could mosey on down to AVfM and read how badly guys get assraped in divorce court. I don’t think that’s something I need to endure in my life to understand it’s bad. I haven’t been shot (though I’ve been shot at) but I don’t think I need to endure a bullet wound to understand that it hurts. The whole tradcon/neo-masculinity crowd seems to be saying, “I signed up and got shot, how dare you buck the system and not get shot.” I remeber reading something in a Hunter S. Thompson novel where he mentioned that guys who wasted their lives in factories were the maddest at hippies who decided to get in a car and explore. “How dare those long haired commie faggots dare to do what I dreamed of doing but didn’t because I cared about what everyone thought.”
