Considering, when attending an event (such as a wedding), if two women show up wearing identical gowns, both are upset, and one may even leave.

Men would appear to be more civilised... Which, in turn, would suggest that women are less civilised...

I don't know the answer, you tell me...

Can anyone explain to me why there are COUNTLESS girl fights at my school? From what I see if you even open a door or walk by a girl the wrong way there ready to fight. Did I mention that the girls in my school are grouped in small factions consiting of up to 9 people. Also for some odd reason they ALL hate the other factions with a passion. It's like a HUGE squad deathmatch.

It's really stupid but it does exist. It's called jealousy and insecurity. Happened the other night with me and some lady in the ER with my mom. Good thing she kept walking or otherwise she would have been admitted herself!!

Yes, as long as you don't take assault and murder into account. Civilized all the way.

So, why do you do it?

I find men to be drama free (in most cases) and more honest and blunt...
Same question. Why the drama?

Behind every "mean girl" or "rude girl" there is a very insecure girl who doesn't love herself.

Do you go to school or college in a third world country? Because that's called divide and conquer. Research divide and conquer and collectivism. It generally happens in corrupt nations or cultures.

And Santa Clause flies around the globe and gives free gifts to all the good Christian children.

There are certainly hegemonic influences that influence bad social behaviors.
