I got into a little argument the other day about the eternal battle of the sexes.The subject? Between women and men, which are the bigger assholes? Being the male in the conversation I of course stood up for the testerone team.
I argued thusly: The male of our species are the ones generally considered to be born with a large red A on our foreheads. However, there is no way that even the most practiced kingpin asshole male can match the pure viciousness of the fairer sex; especially, but not limited to, the way they treat each other!
Having previously worked in a female dominated office setting I witnessed this firsthand on a daily basis. Ahhh, the ! Men, admittedly, can be atrocious backstabbers, but we can't hold a candle to the ladies. MEOW! HISS! Hell, the girls skip right past the backstabbing thing and move directly to frontal stabbing. I submit this evidence (click on the vid).
I love , but I have come to the conclusion that animals in the wild have nothing on the women of suburbia. Women, and animals in the wild, are both vicious and instinctive wild and natural predators. But at least animals hunt for the benefit of the pack. When women take down their prey it means, for the most part, that someone else in the tribe is going hungry that night.
Why do women constantly turn on each other like reality show contestants? The poor woman in the office that happens to be attractive is the constant victim of ridicule and gossip by the other ladies that might be older or less pretty. And no, not just behind her back. Barbs are sometimes veiled as compliments, given with a slight sneer or a subtle roll of the eyes. Like "oh honey, that dress is so pretty! You can barely notice the weight gain", or "that outfit would really work if you weren't so flat chested".
Of course the woman in question likely gets positive attention from the males in the office which automatically makes her "the company whore".
I am not scared of wild animals but a poisonous snake in the wild will get wide berth from me if I'm hiking. I will give it all due respect while admiring it's beauty and acknowledging the threat of it's fangs. But an angry woman, sigh, can make me shiver to the core of my soul.
And yes, I understand that men in general are often times jerks.... and worse. I'll leave it to the women here to rip me a new ass in commentary!
My new avvy, the uncropped version.
Bonus from Auckland New Zealand. This hysterical video should be a lesson to all men.
