12. Actually, I disagree here.

I don't think the objection is really "because then I might not get to fuck her." I think the objection is rather "But that means I have to actually make an effort to relate to her."

13. That assumes intelligence not evident in the character in this cartoon,

or, far too often, in real life characters.

14. Does it?

That certainly wasn't my intent. Although I suppose if the guy cannot really comprehend relating to another person, he wouldn't be able to absorb the idea of a relationship being necessary (to say nothing of rewarding).

"he wouldn't be able to absorb the idea..." etc.

17. I thnk it depends on the situation

we've been told, female and male that we don't think alike, that women have less of sex so drive than men, both ideas that are beng reexamined

First, men and women do think much alike, I think it's when relationships get intimate-- no matter what the gender, that differences become apparent, second women, like men have varying degrees of 'sex drives' but women tend not to have the social pressure to 'get laid' that men do, instead have social pressure not to. We're at a bit of a crossroads gender wise, and the 'rules' are not so much changing as morphing into unrecognizable ideals.

So the guy in the cartoon is situational, he's not loking to "relate" as much he's truly lookng to get laid. Not, shall we say, exactly boyfriend material or even, most likely much good for a zipless fuck (to quote Erica Jong)

20. you've got it backwards

it's not that men are pressured to "get laid" - it's that women are pressured to NOT get laid - by being labeled as loose women, sluts, etc. Also, men don't worry so much that the gal he's with could seriously injure or kill him.

Men pressure to

Women pressure not to

Poorly worded sorry

36. There was certainly some pressure to get laid when I was younger and stupider...

But maybe that pressure isn't so great now. OTOH, I don't see much in modern culture that indicates a belief that women are good for much else...

37. So the question would be of goal or process.

In either event, spending even two minutes finding out who she is is not something in which our hero has an interest.

I had an interesting discussion with Redqueen awhile back. Reddit had had a marathon of men posting their experiences of raping women. One guy made a point which struck around this area: he didn't want to look at the woman's face. Pretty depersonalizing, nyet? And rather an extreme case of someone who doesn't want to relate.

32. Wow, this thread has pulled out some real winners.

 

I have to second the statement that the last panel isn't an accurate depiction of the "reasons." i think Malthaussen nailed it pretty well - the objection isn't that he "won't get to fuck her," the objection is that he's being asked tothink of someone other htna himself, in particular a woman.

I like conversations, not whatever it is they think they're doing there. Once in awhile it gets real so it's not a total loss
