Trending Topics Thursday

7:00 AM

I decided that every Thursday I’m going to attempt to discuss trending topics, and if it goes well maybe I will make it a link up.  Just keep in mind that these are all of my opinions and it is completely different from what I normally post on my blog and maybe some people won’t like it because this is supposed to be a fashion blog but I feel as though I really need to write sometimes and let my brain do all the talking instead of my clothing.  Plus, if I get a bad response there is a delete button.

One trending topic I have been seeing on a lot of my friends social media sites or even from conversations is girl on girl hate.  There’s actually a video I watched by The Indie Chicks that describes this in a nutshell.  Click the little play button below to see it.

What is girl on girl hate?  What does it stem from?  Why is “Mean Girls” not just a movie but reality?  Why do girls do this?  Will it ever stop?  These are some questions I ask myself when I read status updates about either a victim of girl on girl hate or the actual person spewing it.  It’s sad because we are women.  We are supposed to set examples and we are supposed to be friends.  We are supposed to help each other and be sisters.  We are supposed to support one another it whatever it is that we want to do in life.  Why the hate?  Is it really necessary?  Of course we will disagree and we will argue but is it really necessary to call a girl a name just because she doesn’t agree with one of your opinions?

Mean Girls is the perfect example of how girl on girl hate starts and develops.  It stems from a few things but in my opinion mainly insecurity and jealousy.  Jealousy over other women is a very ugly trait.  Don’t get me wrong I’ve made the joke of saying I’m so jealous that you have that bag or shoes but I’m not actually jealous.  If you’ve ever watched Mean Girls look at Regina George for example.    She’s Queen B right?  Look at what she has to do to stay that way.  If you actually think about it she knows she has competition that’s why she started to feel threatened when the new girl on the block started to become more popular than her.  That’s when the claws came out.  They were fighting over popularity.  Really?  I mean, seriously? 
You have to pick your battles and most of the time when a girl talks about another girl and starts saying the typical words like fat, bitch, anorexic, stupid, slut, etc. you just need to either stick up for the person or just let it go.  More than half the time the girl who is saying those words doesn’t even know the girl.  She most likely heard a rumor, dated the same guy, is an ex, or just doesn’t like her for no reason.   

Ladies, just remember, you can be the prettiest girl but if you have an ugly heart you too will lose your pretty.  Empower each other.  Support one another.  Don’t judge.  Most importantly put yourself in the other person’s shoes.  Would you want someone saying these things to you? 

I will leave you with a quote.


Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.  Plato

  1. Thanks for sharing the video and discussing this topic more. Girl on girl hate is very real and very ridiculous. Once women realize that when women support one another we're nearly unstoppable...well the world would be a much better place.

    1. If a bunch of women actually got along instead of hated each other the world really would be unstoppable.

  2. What a nice, thoughtful post! I love this, Monica! Women need to cheer each other on instead of being competitive. We're so much more powerful when we stand together. Girl power!
