Let's Talk About "L O S T"...

 photo Lost_title_card_zps54fd96d6.png

Yes, I know it's been awhile since I wrote a blog about something entertainment related, but it's been a long and very serious time for me the pass couple of weeks. Anyways this is a blog I've been meaning to write for a LONG TIME since I feel like I'm the only one with this perspective. So like more of my lengthy articles I'm gonna start with a preamble. THIS WILL BE SPOILER HEAVY FOR "L O S T" as well as the 2001 movie "The Others" so if you have NOT seen any of these and you have an interest in seeing them, DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!

The Friend Zone #3: How Do You Escape Or Deal With It ?

 photo c2_zps1563c560.jpg
AND HERE WE ARE, THE FINAL article in my 3 part series on The Friend Zone. Thank you for reading thus far and whether you agree or disagree with the points I've made in the previous articles, the fact of the matter is you're open to discussion and that means a lot. Hopefully I've given you much to think about and consider and with this final article (and possibly an addendum to be posted later) I hope to bring my points home and offer a solution to both The Friend Zone'd Man and Woman as well as The Person Of Their Affection so that both parties can traverse the terrain of The Friend Zone without causing the other harm. I will note that I have passed all my articles through my wife, for a 2nd opinion as well as editing and a 2nd pair of eyes to see if I've handled both sides of the fence (Men and Women) without demonizing or victimizing either sex. Basically what I'm saying is you aren't reading anything that I haven't shown her, so if I did demonize women, she'd be the first to point it out.

This article will be gender segregated, as once again the plans of escape and dealing with the Friend Zone are different for men and women. But before we continue, I'll need to once again address the ground rules of these articles and reaffirm that you accept these 4 truths of The Friend Zone.
  1. THE FRIEND ZONE IS REAL!
  2. THE FRIEND ZONE IS NOT GENDER SPECIFIC! BOTH MEN & WOMEN HAVE BEEN AND ARE IN THE FRIEND ZONE! However there are differences between men and women in The Friend Zone and how they end up in there, that will be explained later. But Men and Women have both experienced The Friend Zone. Taylor Swift has an entire song devoted to her Friend Zone status "Teardrops On My Guitar" and Eric Clapton's "Layla" is devoted to his status in The Friend Zone. So don't feed me this bullcrap that ONLY MEN can be in The Friend Zone.
  3. THOSE IN THE FRIEND ZONE DON'T JUST SEEK TO ACQUIRE SEX! Men and Women in The Friend Zone are NOT just seeking sexual intercourse, they are seeking a solid, long lasting relationship which would eventually lead to a potential marriage. No ONE puts THIS MUCH effort into acquiring sex (especially in this day and age where a few drinks will get you laid). Those in The Friend Zone DO NOT prove themselves as upstanding people for the sole purpose of sexual conquest. Granted, sex is the apex of human relationships, so in one aspect they are in fact seeking to have sex with the person they desire BUT SEX IS NOT THE ABSOLUTE GOAL!
  4. THE FRIEND ZONE CAN BE ESCAPED but the vast majority of people CHOOSE to remain in The Friend Zone (which will be explained in a later article)!
If you disagree with those truths about The Friend Zone then please STOP WASTING your time and don't read this article. Also if you tl;dr me, I will NOT entertain your comments so please if you have a short attention span, don't bother reading or commenting. Also I'll ask you to save your comments for when you finish the article as I have a feeling this is going to be a LONG ONE but I'll try to be snappy. But for something as HOTLY debated, discussed and subject to much discourse, a FULL ON DECONSTRUCTION is at hand. I will preamble this by saying that A LOT of this is anecdotal, personal experience and psychological/biological fact. Also I will be speaking in generalities, SO if you do not fit into the category I am discussing feel free to exclude yourself BUT understand that you are in the minority. So some can be taken with a grain of salt but I have much of what I believe on good authority. I'll try to make this humorous and break up the large blocks of texts with pretty pictures to keep your attention. Ladies and Gentlemen, if you're still with me this far then strap yourselves in; it's time to get educated.

The Friend Zone #2: How Did We Get Here ?

If you're reading this right now then I'll go ahead and assume you've read my previous article (and if you haven't then quit being a lazy ass and read the previous article). So this is part 2 of my 3 part series on The Friend Zone. If you're with me at this point than Thank you, and whether you agree or disagree with what I've written the fact remains that you're more open to at least discussing this topic than completely disregarding it. As stated before this article WILL NOT VICTIMIZE OR DEMONIZE any gender. Rather this is a gender balanced examination of The Friend Zone and how it relates to both gender. HOWEVER this article WILL be gender segregated because this article will point out the differences on Men & Women in The Friend Zone and the various reasons on how they get there and WHY THEY CHOOSE TO STAY THERE! So once again I have to lay down the ground rules about these articles. I'll need you all to agree to a few truths about The Friend Zone;
  1. THE FRIEND ZONE IS REAL!
  2. THE FRIEND ZONE IS NOT GENDER SPECIFIC! BOTH MEN & WOMEN HAVE BEEN AND ARE IN THE FRIEND ZONE! However there are differences between men and women in The Friend Zone and how they end up in there, that will be explained later. But Men and Women have both experienced The Friend Zone. Taylor Swift has an entire song devoted to her Friend Zone status "Teardrops On My Guitar" and Eric Clapton's "Layla" is devoted to his status in The Friend Zone. So don't feed me this bullcrap that ONLY MEN can be in The Friend Zone.

The Friend Zone #1: What Is The Friend Zone ?

  photo caution-symbol_zpsedda3d99.jpg
This series of articles will be the MOST IMPORTANT articles you will ever read and because of that, I have A LOT to preamble before we begin the article proper. This article will address concept of The Friend Zone, How it relates to men and women, and how to escape or deal with it. I have been called a misogynist and a sexist (which is hilarious, I'll tell my wife about that as she's read my previous blog and she agrees with me...so I guess she's a misogynist too eh?) THEREFORE, I AM NOT writing these articles gender exclusive. These articles are written for BOTH MEN AND WOMEN!! NEITHER SIDE WILL BE VICTIMIZED OR DEMONIZED. In these articles The Friend Zone will be examined from BOTH SIDES of the room so that we can FINALLY lay this discussion to rest. In order to do this, I'll need you all to agree to a few truths about The Friend Zone;
  1. THE FRIEND ZONE IS REAL!
  2. THE FRIEND ZONE IS NOT GENDER SPECIFIC! BOTH MEN & WOMEN HAVE BEEN AND ARE IN THE FRIEND ZONE! However there are differences between men and women in The Friend Zone and how they end up in there, that will be explained later. But Men and Women have both experienced The Friend Zone. Taylor Swift has an entire song devoted to her Friend Zone status "Teardrops On My Guitar" and Eric Clapton's "Layla" is devoted to his status in The Friend Zone.

Asians In The NFL & Gender Segregation

So if anyone's read my previous post a few weeks back, you'll know that I've become interested in The MRM. Not enough to join it or anything, but enough to open my eyes on a few issues that I haven't been privy too before. Anyway, I was watching a video not too long ago that raised an interesting topic about Gender Discrimination in various fields and I wanted to address that, so here we go;
