It's clear she feels no compunction about putting you on the spot. Return the favor and see how the little snot likes it.

Also, some women (or girls) don't like men in general. They're bitter. Just like there are guys who dislike women and only use them, there are women who are the same way. I have a girlfriend like that for many years. She's very similar around men.

I agree whole-heartedly with calling her out on this behavior. You can do it in a jokey way, but look her in the eye with a gleam in yours - like, hey, I'm allowing you to save face here biotch, but back the F off!

She's a bully. And this is the only way to deal with bullies. You have to face them down, even if it's in a calm, but assertive manner. Otherwise, it will not only continue, but she'll probably ramp it up.

I also don't fathom why the roommate is not supporting you...sticking up for you. Is she afraid of the alpha wanna be? If someone was rude to someone I was close to, a roomy or long time buddy, I would say to the offending party; "you don't have to be so disagreeable.." or "why are you angry"? It sounds like some kind of anger going on. In my home, nobody is going to be rude to roomy or homey..or brother/sister. There's nothing wrong with you saying as well, "you're in my house and being rude. It's time for (your **s) to leave." - it's never too late to speak up for yourself. See but now I have to wonder about your roommate. She lives with you, not the bully. I think you need to talk to your roomes as well, off to the side in private. - But yes. address it right away.
