American culture is mostly idiotic. If you are swimming against the cultural tide you are likely doing the right thing. There is absolutely nothing wrong with staying a bachelor. Marriage and children is not for everyone.

You are not sexist for wanting to stay a bachelor.

You are sexist for thinking women are the cause of all evil.

It seems like you are working very hard to find a social reason to justify you not getting involved in a relationship. Like many have posted here, you don't need one. When you mature some, you will stop trying to rationalize your decisions to others.

Are there women who will use as a sperm donor and an ATM? You bet. Are there men who will use women for sex and money? Roger that. Are there male friends who will use you for something? Yes sir.

One of the main parts of becoming an adult is learning to filter people and know when they mean you harm, in a variety of forms. You learn how to protect yourself from being used by employers, company's you frequent as a customer, relatives, friends, and romantic interests.

You develop requirements for relationships, such as women who have a career (so you are not supporting another), etc.

No one is guaranteed a life without heart ache. Staying away from romantic relationships won't mean a life with no pain, or loss.

Hopefully when you experience more life lessons you will learn you don't have to put down others to justify your own views.

I can't wait to read this book. It has you, and a few other fellows on here, written all inside of it.

NYT Book Review - Angry White Men: American Masculinity at the End of an Era, by Michael Kimmel

From the review: These guys refuse to admit they’ve been handed privilege all these years by a world that puts white men on top. White men, he writes, “have been running with the wind at our backs all these years,” and “what we think of as ‘fairness’ to us has been built on the backs of others.”

Failing to concede this, men get stuck in a permanent dysfunction Kimmel calls “aggrieved entitlement,” in which they “refuse to even be dragged kicking and screaming into that inevitable future” of greater gender and racial equality. Instead they rage, not at the corporate overlords who have actually shipped their jobs overseas but at the amorphous feminists, or more likely “feminazis,” who have stolen American manhood.

Linguistic history in terms of creeds, myths, and religion proves that, Pandora box and Eve anyone. basis of western civilization theology is transfixed in ourheads!

You have the independent and dependent variables flip-flopped in this causal relationship. Staying a bachelor forever doesn't make you sexist, but being sexist might make you stay a bachelor forever.

Wow, was the author on CD taking notes?

No, why would I be. You missed the OPs diatribe in another thread, I was responding to that sentiment. Honestly, no-one cares who stays single and who doesn't except the person involved in that choice. But constant gender bashing really irritates me.

"Born on third base and thought he hit a triple," as the saying goes.

This is really true of any type of privilege group, whether it be male, white, straight, cisgender, attractive, athletic, tall, wealthy, able-bodied, Christian, highly educated, etc. etc. etc. Most of us belong to some privileged groups and some unprivileged groups. We have a tendency as humans to only notice the areas where we are unprivileged, while being unaware of (and even denying) the areas where we are privileged.
