- Research everywhere finds that this stigma is mainly enforced by women, not by men.
Men fight and women don’t, right? Actually no.
Women can be just as aggressive as men – though generally they’re less physically violent.
Their hostility is much more subtle. And mostly directed against other women. Especially young women…
Imagine an attractive and sexy woman.
When she’s wearing modest clothes, everyone’s nice to her. But put her into a low-cut blouse and short skirt and everything changes.
The men will love her even more, of course. But the women won’t. She’ll be met with stares, anger and disgust.
And talked about behind her back. Women everywhere are bitchy towards an attractive female who’s dressed provocatively.
The more attractive she is, the more the “mean girls” will go after her.
What’s going on? Aren’t women supposed to stick together and be nice to one another?
Not a bit of it.
In just about every society on earth, men have to compete – often violently – for the chance to have children.
Whereas women don’t. But women are not passive trophies for triumphant males.
They also compete fiercely for the most popular partners. But indirectly.
While boys’ fight’s usually involve direct physical or verbal assaults, girls are much more likely to use a whole range of indirect tactics.
