Not to be pedantic, but bachelor isn't the same as unmarried male. (There is a divorced male, a widower, and a male child who is too young to marry)

... to say nothing of a 'bachelor button' - neither 'unmarried', 'male', nor 'a small disc sewn onto a garment to fasten it'.

P.S:: Just in case you were planning to join in: we have cancelled the volunteer garden work (Ehrenamtliche Gartenarbeit) session scheduled for tomorrow, March 16th at 2:30 p.m. in Kiel's Old Botanical Garden owing to the fact that the garden still lies under a layer of snow (uncharacteristic for Kiel in mid-March). The schedule for the remaining sessions from April to October, 2013 is posted in the garden display case, on the door of the garden toolshed, and in the pavillion.
