LOL! I would call that maturity rather than mental illness, but your point is well taken.
Nothing wrong with exploring one's options, which teaches us much about ourselves in the process, but at some point most people (hopefully!) learn to appreciate quality over quantity.
Again, it's part of exploring one's own self and nature, learning about human nature, learning what is important and what's not... all that good stuff! Not just for individuals either, but collectively for society. Moving from an arranged marriage culture to a marrying-for-love culture to a free-love culture has a learning curve.

Maybe in some situations, but certainly not in every case. At one time, women did "need" men but ONLY because men had written the laws to make sure of it! Women could not even have a choice to divorce abusive husbands!!!
The really attractive ones but you aren't attracted to men? I've got some news for you my man.
Were they 10% body fat without doing any exercise also?
People Refusing To Date Transgenders Is ‘Dehumanizing’
some people are pushing an agenda and instead of everyone trying to get along, they want to control your beliefs and opinions and that's a recipe for disaster.
“Hey #UT23! Do you wanna be famous? If you join YCT or Turning Point USA, you just might be. Your name and more could end up on an article like one of these,” the tweet said, linking to previous doxxing posts of conservative students at the school. “So be sure to make smart choices at #UTOrientation.”
Very, very true. What it is causing is more and more of "avoidance" of social interaction at any level.

Nah, I don't see it that way. There's this commonly-held notion that women are far more emotional than men are and that a woman's sexuality and sexual desire is strongly tied to her emotional state, and what she feels about a guy, but honestly just visit any beach-resort town filled with young women and men and you'll see that women are as a visually-oriented as men are.
Some scholars have argued that female sexual desires tend to be fluid and receptive, while men’s desires – regardless of whether men are gay or straight – tend to be inflexible and unchanging.
Despite the common belief in the rigidity of male heterosexuality, historians and sociologists have created a substantial body of well-documented evidence showing straight men – not “closeted” gay men – engaging in sexual contact with other men. In many parts of the United States prior to the 1950s, the gay/straight binary distinguished effeminate men (or “fairies”) and masculine men (“normal” men) – not whether or not a man engaged in homosexual sex.
Like, you think guys are going to become monks if they are in jail or in the army and haven't see a woman in months, even years? Just ask the Ancient Spartans! most of them were having sex with other men.

Very, very true. What it is causing is more and more of "avoidance" of social interaction at any level. I see it in the grandkids; they avoid school social functions like the plague. They have small, tight nit group of friends developed over the years from team mates in baseball and football and those teams were not the "school" teams, but outside leagues.
I haven't heard any news from the Universities or Colleges lately but I'd guess avoidance has become a survival skill at this point. But today there was this story:
So........basically an anarchist group warns they'll be watching and doxxing incoming freshmen who sign up with conservative groups at the Freshman orientation.
A friends son, (wanna be engineer) at UT told us that as far as Freshman Orientation is concerned, its something to be "endured" and escaped from as soon as humanly possible after its over.
Your right, they aren't avoiding school sponsored activities because of the trans agenda; they're avoiding the school sponsored activities because of all the PC furor that seems to surround everything having to do with the school sponsored activities. What they're avoiding is a seemingly endless number of pitfalls that can get them blamed for any number of inappropriate behaviors or responses or even the lack thereof. The trans agenda is just one small part of that.

But how do you know you aren't attracted to men if you've never slept with one? How do you know you enjoy this food or that? Because you've had to try it first, no?!
