This comment appeared on my blog today in response to a piece I wrote two months ago on the inherent sexism of friendzoning as a terminology. (I also put it on tumblr, where it quickly became the most reblogged original piece I’ve ever posted.)  
Clearly, the article struck a nerve - not just with people who agreed or disagreed with it to various degrees, but also with people like this commenter, to whom the worst-case behavioural scenarios it describes are apparently normative, natural and desirable. Despite this conviction, he still felt the need to drop by and justify himself.
And even as I’ve been writing this up, another male commenter - whose contributions to the debate merit a post of their own - has dropped by to offer the following endorsement:

Sir, you have described what i have thought perfectly and i thank you, you deserve a knighthood for your services to men and women everywhere, take a bow son.

Some days, there just isn’t enough facepalm in the world.
