The stigma of being single
In this clip (around 4:30) Maher and Black discuss their choice to remain single, and how many people cannot frame it as something other than dysfunctional. This is not to deny a single person doesn't have dysfunctional aspects. Seems most everyone has at least some. But the thought of remaining single as dysfunction in itself seems a rather dysfunctional projection on the part of those who cannot live without defining themselves within a coupled relationship. Some of these same couples are fine with being gay, or even trans-gender like Caitlyn Jenner. As long as these folks are in a couple!
