I hate this like nicewashing of girls/women within tumblr feminist circles..even tho ofc the IDEA that women are innately catty and competitive w each other and the actual instances as well are products of male supremacy and gender socialization but like..that doesn’t erase the sad reality that many women aren’t nice to other women and how much it hurts and affects those that are victims of it. 🙄 can that stop being glossed over to fit the perpetual ‘women do no wrong’ narrative in this hellhole that lacks nuance?!? there’s an idea that the women that are victim to mean girls have internalized misogyny ourselves, that were ostracized bc we think we’re ‘not like other girls’ or st when I find that that attitude is literally a product of being bullied and ostracized by women to begin with rather than the cause of being bullied. I wanna talk about being bullied and ostracized by female peers and how much it hurts! I’ve never experienced these kind considerate sympathetic women tumblr talks about lmao. yeah women are absolutely more often that compared to men bc of socialization but the average woman hates other women so they treat them like shit and prioritize men. I don’t see that being talked about, how to deal w it, etc.
if I were to talk about how difficult it is for me to make friends with women (altho I’ve never had male friends and don’t plan on it ew) bc they all ostracize me and treat me like shit I feel like I’d get shit for it like 'internalized misogyny!!’ when..so many women..are just not nice to other women..bc of their internalized misogyny. me experiencing that or talking about doesn’t make me misogynist -___-
