Why I like guys…

To quote the ever- prophetic Fred Durst (yes, I am being–partially anyway–sarcastic):

It’s all about the he said she said bullshit
I think you better quit,
lettin‘ shit slip
Or you’ll be
leavin‘ with a fat lip
It’s all about the he said she said bullshit
I think you better quit,
talkin‘ that shit

What do people find so appealing in being mean to one another? I really don’t get it. When I was in the dentist’s office the other day (before I found out that my wisdom teeth need to be cut out of my jaw) there were these two girls talking crap about some girl they work with.

“She’s so fat and stupid,” said the blonde girl whose vagina was hanging out of her skirt.

“OH MY GOD I KNOW,” said the brunette whose boobs were about to escape the confines of her tank top. “If I were that fat I would never leave the house.”

Then, Thursday when I was back at Shen, my lovely alma mater (again, sarcasm), to see the Vice President, there were women in front of me, teachers at Shen in their mid-40s who were doing the same thing. They were being just as needlessly mean spirited as the teenagers in my dentist’s office.

“She ate McDonald’s for lunch at her desk today,” said the curly-haired woman, who, if you ask me, looked like she enjoys a Big Mac every now and then.

To which her frizzy-haired friend replied, “If I looked like her I would stop eating, EVERYTHING, not just McDonald’s!”

Why are girls and women so mean? Is it jealousy? Is it to boost their own self-esteem? I don’t understand. I guess this is why I get along with guys so much better than chicks.

Ladies–gossipping a la Perez Hilton is NOT cool. It does not make you look cool nor does it bring anything positive to the world. There is a big difference between a silent opinion and saying nasty things out loud.

Maybe I’m just defensive because I have more often than not been on the receiving end of mean negativity, or maybe I was just raised with morals and, you know, that thing called a conscience. Maybe it’s my hippie parents coming out, but I really don’t understand why people need to be so mean and negative.

Shows like Gossip Girl make it seem okay to be needlessly mean, I guess this is me saying that it’s really not. I know what it feels like to have mean girls come after you for absolutely no reason and that’s why I gave up trying to find close female friends. It’s just not worth it.

Have I ever talked about someone behind their back? Of course. Anyone who’s ever gone through an American middle school probably has. But I’m not proud of it and I try my best to avoid those kinds of situations and people because it’s just hurtful and unnecessary.

You don’t like someone? Fine. Ignore them don’t go out of your way to make their lives miserable because you’re insecure with your own. It’s not necessary.

I know it’s pointless to say “why can’t we all get along?” because it’s never going to happen. But why can’t we all just tolerate each other?

I wish the women who thrive off of being catty and bitchy would just give it a rest and stop giving the rest of us a bad reputation. The fact that they ruin things for the rest of us is almost enough for me to get mad and rap about it Fred Durst-style.
