Seriously. I hate it when women sit and discuss how bitchy other women are, without thought to what they’re doing. By doing this they are not only undermining themselves and their entire gender- they’re also sabotaging and weakening the entire concept of feminism. It is Patriarchy- It’s chauvinism that insists in stereotyping women- as well as men. Feminism tells us: that we are more, we are better than our stereotypes and norms. So no women are not bitchy - That particular woman may be. Men are not all bastards- that man may be. The saddest part is that we don’t even know how deeply gender norms have screwed with our psyche. But we have to change that. We can do that by accepting differences- by accepting that no woman has to be anything. She can be anything she wants. Society cannot dictate that.

    this, this! stop tearing down other women because of your own internalised misogyny. I see a lot of women doing this so...

    There needed to be more “Some women” like “Some women weight train and are into fitness” “Some women are atheists” etc....
