The #friendzone & dudebros: my latest essay in @Vice
So this is a funny story. Last week I got into a Twitter spat with some jabroni who was going on about the “friend zone.” I was frankly shocked to see it coming from a so-called “gentleman,” (he uses that word in his twitter handle like all gentlemen do, ‘natch) because in the circles I run in, using that term is a laughable offence. Forgot that there actually are people who think that’s a perfectly acceptable term (and the word for those people is ‘nimrod’).
In any case, one of the staff writers at VICE saw my tweets and told me I should definitely turn this into a piece.
See? NEVER SHY AWAY FROM HAVING FIGHTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
I WILL HAVE ALL THE FIGHTS WITH STRANGERS ON THE INTERNETZZZZZZZ.
Kidding! (Not kidding)
