When Women Bully, We Hurt Each Other

A survey by the Workplace Bullying Institute found that most bullies are men — but 40 percent are women. While male bullies attack men and women, female bullies tend to go after their own kind, targeting other women more than 70 percent of the time.

My guess is that some women who want to feel powerful feel the need to dominate others, and lording over other women can be easier than commanding men. With the economy the way it is, people are trying to get ahead, and some are taking not-so-nice measures to get there. In case you’re not sure whether someone is bullying you, tactics can include being glared at in a hostile manner, being given the silent treatment, and having others fail to deny false rumors about you. Sounds like pretty catty behavior, doesn’t it? Keep reading »

Where Have All The Sluts Gone?

Attention career women! Have you lost something? Your sex drive, perhaps? Esquire scribe Stephen Marche thinks you have and declared this a “disaster for men.” According to Marche, while feminism emancipated women sexually, the movement has resulted in making women so focused on career pursuits that they no longer have time for or interest in fornicating. The proof? “30 Rock” and “The City” are cited as concrete evidence of this epidemic. Keep reading »

Women Listen Best When Gossiping and Eavesdropping

While you’re more likely to hear women complain about their boyfriends and husbands never listening to them than the other way around, a recent poll discovered that men actually listen more carefully to others than women do. “The poll of 2,000 people found that more than one in five men reckon they always listen carefully to every word, and while less than one in five of women said the same.” Among the situations where women tend to tune out: listening to work colleagues (the average woman listens intently just 64% of the time), listening to their boss (women pick up just 2/3 of their boss’ communication), and listening to their partners (they catch 70% of those conversations). If women aren’t listening to their colleagues, bosses, or partners, what are they paying attention to? The poll says women give the most focus to gossip and eavesdropping! Don’t worry, though — “when it comes to talking to their best friend, women give their full attention to more than three quarters of what is spoken.” I’m guessing the 25% of the time women are tuning their best friends out is when the following is being discussed: their kids, how the wedding planning is going, or how, like, totally great their relationship is. Snooze-ville! [via Telegraph U.K.]

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Hose Down A Dry Spell

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex.

Target Practice, Love Doll-Style

Welcome to Monday, people. Let’s get this week started right — with a fun-loving video in which armed women shoot inflatable love dolls out of the sky. Now you know what you wish you were doing if you weren’t at work, don’t you? Making a feminist statement by annihilating that which represents the patriarchal objectification of women! Or, you know, maybe it’s just some wacky Japanese TV show. However you want to see it, it looks like a good time to me. Do you think that maybe for the next episode they could send up a squadron of those inflatable Sarah Palin love dolls? That would be a great opportunity for making an awesome political statement, indeed. Keep reading »

Ask The Astrosexologist: Can We Rekindle The Romance?

“My ‘was-boyfriend’ (2/20/87) decided that he and I (5/07/86) should take some time apart after almost three years together. Our first year together was wonderful, and the second was great, but the third had become a little too comfortable — less about love and more about being best friends. He says this isn’t about anyone else, but he isn’t sure that I’m ‘the one.’ Sometimes I feel the same, but I think back to how amazing things were in the beginning. We’ve dealt with more than our fair share of long-distance love, and now he’ll be going to grad school while I’m out in the workforce. Do you think we have a chance of rekindling the romance and falling back in love?” – Tepid Taurus Keep reading »
