People Deny Singlism Exists and Get Mad at You for Pointing It Out. Why?

Unlike other isms that are more widely recognized, singlism (the stereotyping, stigmatizing, and discrimination against single people) is not on most people’s radar. What’s more, if they do hear about it, they often deny it or minimize it or lash out at the people who point to it. What’s going on? Here are some of the blog posts I’ve written about this. The book, Singlism: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How to Stop It, is relevant, too.

Almost all singles have experienced it, being discriminated because you are not married. It is everywhere, from the media, advertisements, your workplace, even your friends and family. You know what they are thinking “Aw, poor thing cannot even find a husband/wife. There must be something wrong with her/him.” And how many times do you have to hear your mother or father say, “When are you going to get married and give me some grandchildren?” Why? What is wrong with choosing to be single? Not everyone wants to be married. Nothing wrong with that at all.


Travel in Style with a Party Bus [SPONSORED CONTENT]

The summer is here, and with it come all the best parties and the best music festivals. Get your friends and head out to whatever event caught your attention. However, getting to these parties and festivals can be a bit of a drag. Spending hours on end in a boring bus or a train can really dampen your enthusiasm. And flights are potentially even worse, with the wait and the cramped seats. Chances are you are going to be physically separated from your friends for the duration of the trip, too. What you need is a way to keep the party spirit alive even during the trip. There’s no better way to do that than with a party bus.
