This is not really a debate thread but more of a general question. In my experience, I have known three women in my family alone to be, well... In favor of men over women. What I mean by that is that they will take a situation done by a man and a woman, the same situation, and cast hate and blame on the woman but they will find excuses for the man. For example... A man is a known liar. An excuse would be, well he was trying to protect their feelings or he was doing it to be kind. A woman is a known liar and she can't be trusted. Don't believe anything she says. ect ect It isn't just small acts like this either. There has been other issues more serious like rape where it was said in so many words to be the woman's fault or just completely unbelievable that the man could say or do such a thing. This is among people who are known or well known on a day to day basis, not random strangers... which makes it worse in my book. Sexist may not be the "right" word but it is the best one I can think of for this situation i.e. women who favor men over women. I am sure all women do this to an extent when it comes to personal relationships but to be doing this with men you are not dating or married to, or siding with a man you have known for only a year over a woman you have known for your whole life... it seems odd to me. Maybe I am not understanding something here. So what do you think? Do you think some women unknowingly to themselves side with men? EDIT: I guess a more appropriate way of saying this is women being biased against other woman.
