Is your mother worth time to many other people? Or does she include herself when she says that women are terrible?

Yes she is. She is nice to other people and has a strong social life while my taking care of my soon to be 3 year old sister and has a loving husband.

But not everyone is like her and she knows they exist. She was just giving me a heads up like most good parents do.

If you consider maligning the majority of women (while conveniently excusing herself from the same category) as good parenting, sure.

You went on to say that other than two women you dated, the others were all *******, right? So I guess you really did take your mother's ideas to heart.

This coming from the woman who told me I should be happy my late fiance died.

You're the type she warned me about.

Yes, my mother was and continues to be a good parent. Is that a problem with you?

Don't bother answering.. Cause I won't respond to you any longer.

I have encountered this as well. Luckily, I was taught how to "disarm" these kinds of women and men. For the most part, it works. For those who have a difficult time trusting other people, because that's what it comes down to, I make sure the interactions balance out, tit-for-tat.

Why do women all go to the bathroom together? Because if just one leaves she knows the others will gossip about her.

Oh, yeah, make the way women treat other women the fault of men.

Some observations:

I work with youth in my church, where older men teach the teen boys and older women teach the teen girls.

In our leadership discussions, we have noted that when a teen boy is uninterested in the discussion, he merely "zones out."

But in the girls' groups, when a girl is uninterested in the discussion, she disrupts it. She antagonizes the leader and pulls other girls out of the discussion.

Now, the dynamic in these groups for the boys is that they know and we know that no fistfights are going to happen, and one does, the grown men are going to win it. So a boy who is feeling rebellious is just going to zone out. We don't have to talk about it. It just happens that way.

That doesn't seem to be the dynamic in the girls's groups. The women who lead the girl's groups constantly search for ways to keep them entertained...rather than teaching them.

A second observation: My daughter used to work for a company owned and run by Iraq veterans, mostly men with few women. While she didn't like the rough-cut nature of interactions, she mentioned to me something I'd once said about a Marine colonel who'd once been my boss: "If I do something wrong, he'll tell me not to do it again, I'll tell him I won't, and then he'll say, 'Now, how 'bout them Cubs!'" In other words, among men once the boss has established his boss-ness, everything is cool.

My daughter saw that happening in a heavily masculine workplace. But she reports that her experience in heavily feminine workplaces has been that catiness rules, and catiness holds grudges a long time.

Sure, females can be mean to one another with their words...but males are ten times more likely to assault and kill one another. I'd say maybe chicks are onto something with the letting emotions out in a less permanent and damaging manner?

but we're not discussing how nasty men get, it's about woman and why they are so mean...women, I'm sorry to say, can be heartless to each other...I've felt the wrath of this mental illness from several women in my lifetime...

and believe that is why I chose to be alone...seriously do not like a lot of women, the drama, and how nasty they can be....I'd rather sit and talk with a bunch of men, then listen to the drama and gossip.
