Options June 4, 2014: #26 - Boyfriend NBD

Today on the show, I explore some things that make having a boyfriend no big deal, and kind of a big deal. My friend Holly Wood explains it like this: "We’re conditioned to approach relationships from the way your family does, which is to say women don’t have value until they are assigned value by the commitment of a man." I turn to friends and family to explore the subtle ways this plays out in my life, and learn that I am probably over-intellectualizing the whole damn thing.

Don't worry- I would feel weird if I had a boyfriend too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm SeanG:

Marriage is an institution that is outdated!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm dale:

it's just a commitment that says someone's got your back. nothing wrong with that. without it it's too easy to walk when things get sticky.

What?? In what universe would being a PHD candidate at a great university be an unappealing thing?

Hi there.. sorry to intervene on a recorded show, but i would say that we should wear more aproximate clothing or only unisex .. i would prefer that, and hair dying and stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Greg from Bloomfield:

OOOOooooh. "They weren't good enough" vs "I'm not good enough." Good one, Ange.

As a gay man in his 40s it was impossible to bring up my boyfriend in college in casual conversation in the ways you're describing.
Avatar 7:39pm Callieflower:

Andrea's the most patient woman in the world, Sasha, since she hasn't already just deactivated the comments for her show
Avatar 7:40pm thunderish' Jay:

sorry.. my mistake.. being comenting when im in heart minor state of loss and grief towards love
Avatar 7:42pm thunderish' Jay:

but remember: we all love every1 we met in our life that we have an earthly connection .. just a matter of putting the beat in the same rythmn.. the problem is that we have different tuned metronomes, our heart

Family is overrated!

I don't know the point of the WFMU comments anymore. You guys are just dicks to me and my guests every week. Doing shows like this leaves me so sleep deprived that I am too easily irked by you all. RIP WHY OH WHY COMMENTS BOARD.
