Every time a girl says that shes “not like other girls,” Dumbledore assigns ten points to the patriarchy
(Source: , via weavegirlhate)
The girl who doesn’t like other girls. Sometimes diplomatically labelled ‘a guy’s girl.’
All girls are mean to each other, not just this specific breed. This is an unfortunate truth, yet hardly surprising considering how often we are exposed to conflict between women or girls in the media. It almost seems to be an obvious fact in our society that an inherent rift exists between females yet this effect is a complete social construction. Thanks a lot, The Bachelor, now women everywhere hate each other.
Okay, I realize it’s not quite that simple.
Women insult and shame other women in order to gain the approval of men. They want the ‘good girl’ stamp. They feel validated by it. Their self worth rides on outdated and oppressive ideas of womanhood and femininity.
Also, many of them (often subconsciously) envy the freedom of the ‘bad girl’ or the ‘slut.’ She does things they want to but would never do. She represents a part of themselves that they suppress.
This is a warning. I’m doing research on girl hate and solidarity, and there’s gonna be a flood of posts coming up. I’m tagging them on “girl hate”, so block the tag if you feel like it.
