I was at a social event not too long ago, chatting up some ladies. We were all getting our gab on, when one of the woman said she doesn't hang out with other woman. Doesn't get along with them. "Most woman are just too catty, and bitchy, I rather hang out with the guys." was her rationalization for this comment. I really wasn't sure what this broad was getting at, because she was indeed hanging out with other woman. Plus we are all in our thirties, so I kinda thought we were past this kind of silly comments. I decided to ask her why, oh why, was she chatting with the likes of us then.
"I'm not saying you ladies....its all other women in general" was her response.
I hear this a little to often then I would like. Woman claiming that they much rather hang with the drama free guys, then the gossipy girls. That other woman are too catty, too bitchy, too much drama.
I call bullshit.
Those who read my blog know I'm a total girls girl. So when I hear another woman bashing woman in general, it pisses me right the fuck off.
Who other than a girlfriend can relate to:
Mood swings, cramps, and all other things period related..............................
The need for the perfect bra, your secret stash of "granny panties", and the million anti-aging products sitting in your drawer................
Stretch marks, hair in places it shouldn't be, the art of de-hairing ourselves, and the desperate need for chocolate.
I'm not saying there are not catty, "too much drama for your mama", woman out there...of course there are. I just have a hard time believing every single women is a catty bitch. I'm not saying I don't love to hang out with the guys. My guy friends rock, and (pre -19 month old that refuses to sleep through the night) I use to love hitting up a pub with them. But there is also a slew of asshole men out there too. Furthermore, I would take a night on the town with my best gals over the pub any day of the week. Fuck, I would take face masks, wine, movies and a box of chocolates with my sisters over hanging with the boys. Us woman should be lifting each other up, not tearing each other down. We are too dam strong, and too dam smart to be spurting out comments like "All woman are catty bitches".
Now before you send me hate mail stating shit like "I disagree, I hang out with men because of whatever fucking reason, and women are just catty". Just wait. If you indeed are that person that would much rather hang out with guys then girls. That's fine. But why the need to voice it? Why don't you just do it and leave out the comments. Is it really necessary to say "All women are drama, catty, bitchy" , blah blah, blah. Cause I hate to break it to ya, but when you say those things, your being just as catty. Just as bitchy. Comments like that start just as much drama.
I'm thinking if a woman was bitchy with you, she was probably on her period.....and com'on, can't you totally relate?
