I have a few friends right now that have been having some guy issues. Some pretty serious, some not so much. When we all get together it turns into a guy bashing fest, it’s pretty annoying! So many “omg all men are the same” comments. I stand my ground and always mention how even if guys can be A-holes at times we can also be bitchy lol. I hate always having to say “well my FI isn’t like that!” because then they look at me like I am naive. I am so not naive! A lot of guys do cheat but so do girls, a lot of guys are a-holes but so are girls! My FI isn’t a perfect man, he sometimes checks out girls, sometimes says things that aren’t so nice, sometimes pisses me off but in the end he is pretty amazing. Neither of us is perfect.
I just hate the man hating lol I get that on a girls night out it’s fun to complain and whine about men, I join in a a lot of times but these friends do it on a constant basis. In the end it’s no big deal, it just grinds my gears sometimes lol.

When I first started dating my FH, I had some really man bashing friends. I got to the point when I had to sever ties with said friends. I really couldn’t handle any more.

This is my personal pet peeve in life (or 1 of 200). Everyone is different, everyone is their own person. I’d hate to have someone say “well all girls are whores because my girlfriend cheated on me”. Excuse me! I’m ME, judge me on my qualities.

That is really annoying! If you join in just to go along with your friends, it is disrespectful to your fiance but if you disagree with everything your friends say it is like adding insult to injury to the friends who aren’t having good luck with men right now. If it were me, I would let them do their man bashing for a few minutes and then try and change the subject to something more positive. If it doesn’t work or they call you on it, you might have to limit your time with these ladies.

Ew. This is something I just can’t stand! I hate the generalizations that some women make and man-bashing drives me insane! It seems so small-minded.
I know we all go through tough times in our relationships, but we obviously chose our partners because we see good in them. I think if women are truly, truly unhappy they should leave. Otherwise, they should put the energy they put into man-bashing into actually making their relationships work.
I think it’s totally okay to vent to your girlfriends about a specific issue you might be having, but to generalize and demonize everything about men drives me absolutely insane!
