Why do humans tear down other humans is probably the real question.
We all just want to feel good about ourselves, and sadly, for some it means hurting others.
We are competitive, it's in our nature, but sometimes we decided that feeling ahead at the cost of others emotions is ok.

Maybe women are more open about tearing each other down (Real House Wifes of Everything) but I think men do it just as much, just in a more private setting.

I can't stand being around a lot of other women for this. I think it is DEFINITELY insecurity. If you could hold your own, you wouldn't be trying to make me come off as "lesser" than you, saying things like, "You don't have this," or "You don't have that." It's also possibly ignorance because they aren't realizing that we don't all have to be the same way. What if I don't want to have this or that because I have other things you DON'T have? I wonder if these women have ever heard about feminism.

Why single out women? Men tear each other down all the time - sometimes literally, as in killing each other. But women are seen particularly as fighting amongst themselves? Come on.
I think the better question as has been said in this thread is why humans fight each other needlessly.

Women have a subconscious desire to appear more appealing in order to get the top pick of mates. The same goes for men, so don't feel bad, we just do it in different ways.

Generally, woman will tarnish other women's reputation to appear more viable, while men will go to great lengths to prove they're better to show how viable they are.

Both have the same goal, but both go about it in alternate ways.

I would say its probably depending on the person. Men and women both can hold a grudge and judge others in a heartbeat. I agree that insecurities may play a role. An example with guys is what some call little man syndrome. If you play sports you have probably seen the guy who is shorter or smaller than the others on the team but he always exerts too much force or gets in your face a lot. This is the guy that chucks the ball at you when all he should have done was tossed it. Its because he is lacking in one area that he feels compelled to make it up in another. Also with most guys I feel like it is more respected than looked down on. I mean if you are more muscular than me or you make more money than good for you, it means you put more effort into it than I did. Then again I am pretty laid back so this might just be me.


THIS^ is soo true-especially the short guy syndrome thing (not ALL short/small men, but A LOT of-em).
I'm a big guy and would stop hanging around more than a few small guys because they would be overly aggressive towards other people, so that I would have to almost get in a fight because THEY ALWAYS would start SOMETHING with SOMEONE...ugh. annoying


6'2" 205lbs and I also live in Cali. I can totally relate. I have three really good friends and we'd lay in front of a car for each other, but two of us are 6' + and the other two are 5'9" and 5'7". The shorter two are very aggressive and always used to get us into fights. They've mellowed out since then, but they're still mouthy.

This topic belongs to the ladies. My only advice would be for anyone with an M listed under gender to stay away from this topic. There is no way to avoid sounding either stupid or chauvinistic.

On the other side of the isle though, many men do things much more physically dangerous in an attempt to put ourselves over each other, which often leads us to doing something incredibly stupid. ><


Now that just sounds chauvinistic. Why are you even here?

I call it the small world syndrome.
When someone declares war on their neighbors because they don't see the evil house further down the road.
