Competition Between Women

Postby NorthAmericanguy » October 1st, 2013, 3:00 am

This was an interesting read!! Enjoy guys!


"It was hypothesized that women attach considerable importance to the physical attractiveness and appeal of members of their own sex in a manner that is not paralleled in males. In addition, it was hypothesized that women compete among themselves in regards to attractiveness and seek to find faults with particularly attractive women, because attractive females are threatening to the self-image."


"Men are by nature indifferent to one another; but women are by nature enemies. The reason is no doubt that the odium figulinuum which with men does not go beyond the bounds of the particular guild with women embraces the whole sex—they are all engaged in the same trade. Even when they simply pass in the street they look at one another like Guelphs and Ghibililines: and when two women exchange compliments it sounds much more ludicrous then when two men do so. The reason for this may be that with women all differences in rank are far more precarious than they are with men, and can be altered or abolished much more quickly, whereas with men a hundred different considerations are involved. Because women are all in the same profession (competitors for the attentions of men), they all stand much closer to one another than men do, and consequently strive to emphasize differences in rank. -A. Schopenhauer."

Dude, it's amazing! Even in China, the women are catty, bitchy, gossipy and backhanded with each other in the workplace, LOL! It's just goes to show you that women are the same in the workplace--anywhere in the world.

This doesn't occur "by nature"

If you raise women in a society that tells them from a young age that their worth is in their appearance, then this is what happens. Guys can get their worth from what they do, but women, no matter what they do, will always be judged first by their appearance.

That so true, that's why I've always rolled with the boys 8) & that in itself adds more envy. Even girls in your own family will do it. I had older cousins that made me feel akward when I really didn't have to.

Contrary to the Femintrash hogwash media that has you believing "women are more emotionally stable" "form communities better than men" blah blah blah. In my experiences, STRAIGHT men in groups tend to be mutually supportive and non-competitive. There is a level of camaraderie that women don't emotionally understand nor comprehend. Same goes for flaming homos. Put a bunch of gay men together where I've witnessed first hand a catty mess, and it takes a straight, masculine male to bring order to the group.

It's hard to fight nature, I think both sexes operate mainly on animal instinct and until we outgrow this there is no way to truly go forward.
