Why are women hating on other women?

Destiny’s Child performed to the delight of Super Bowl fans, but RB Singer Keisha Cole took to Twitter to take a swipe at Michelle Williams. Recently Kelly Rowland took a swipe at Keisha Cole. Last month Fantasia was unhappy about a photo that Jet magazine used of her on their cover. Fantasia took to Instagram to express her displeasure. Jet magazine issued an apology to Fantasia, but then Jet magazine editor in chief Mitzi Miller took her Facebook page to lament about wasting an hour of her day writing a press release to a woman (Fantasia) who could not read. Miller has since apologized. Pop star Taylor Swift has chastised Amy Poehler and Tina Fey regarding a joke they made about her at the Golden Globe awards regarding Michael J. Fox’ son and Swift. “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Taylor Swift told Vanity Fair when asked about the incident (and mean girls—not to be mistaken for Mean Girls—in general). “Because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” So why can’t women be friends? Is this a woman thing or just a mean thing? Share your thoughts.

    I think it’s unrealistic for someone to withhold commentary or criticism strictly on the basis of their gender or skin color, or even in some cases political affiliation. Especially when it’s done at an awards show where CLEARLY it was a comedic line delivered by comediennes. I agree that petty snippery is a waste of time and evidence of a lack of character, but to erect a “no fly zone” over someone just because they and you have the same gender is unfair and rather immature.
