Ya, you know what really chills my bones. Is when some jerk, abusive man starts problems with me and other females jump on his band wagon. sheeesh, but ya we should stick together like glue, otherwise, someone ends up ALONE, the catty one or the victim.
Rania, until those women GROW UP, they think that by taking a man's side, that he is going to "reward" them with his "favor." Boy, are they ever in for a surprise.What silly women...
A man may be the catalyst, but not necessarily. I've observed women backstabbing each other for power, prestige, promotion, money, jealousy, and revenge. And in a disgusting imitation of men I've seen a few competing for the title of "Alpha Female."
Once I thought that belly dancing would be free of all that; a tight-knit community of dance sisters (and a few brothers, primarily male dancers and musicians), but forums like this one were disillusioning. A year or two ago I read about a belly dance teacher who moved into another's territory and offered free classes. I cannot help wondering why she would do this except to steal a rival's students and hurt her business. Altruism? Nah. I'm just too old and cynical to believe that.
of course, women will steel, lie, bash, etc as well for what ever it is they want, ots sad and i know it from experience!
And yeah on the original topic...I always have other girls bully me I'd rather have male friends sometimes....even much younger women bully me!
That's interesting about the army...sounds awful D: I personally and very happily escaped the army as my parents moved out of Israel when I was twelve-ish.babybow, not to brag but I've unwrapped a few bullies in my time and have invariably found a coward underneath. They bully others to cover their own fear. People who are really tough have no need to do that. I've come to expect it from the male of the species as I have been dealing with it since I was at least six years old, but after all these years it still bothers me to see a female who is out to prove that she can be a bully too.
You mentioned the army....I've heard that there is a chain of command among army wives, and a lieutenant's wife can easily bully a sergeant's wife if she wants to. A captain's wife can bully a lieutenant's wife. A major's wife can bully the captain's wife. A colonel's wife can bully a major's wife. And of course a general's wife can bully them all.
