Totally can relate… It’s the worst!  The negativity is contagious and usually makes me feel anxious. 🙁

Anna113619:  The majority of my co-workers are male (CJ bee). Some females, but we’re very little in numbers. Can’t relate to your post, but that sure seems like an uncomfortable work environment. Does she have a superior? If she doesn’t changer her attitude, bring it up to her and her superior. Hold her accountable for her words and actions. We all need to act professional while at work, and temper tantrums only belong in a preschool.

I blame their behavior on immaturity, not their basic female-ness.

You should change your title from “women” to “woman” considering you are talking about one woman getting on your nerves here.

I don’t understand it when women say “I hate almost every other woman in the world, they are trouble!” when they really only mean a handful of troubling people. It’s such a preteen/teenage thing to say. I would know, I felt that way too at that age. I learned quickly that there are always going to be assholes that you don’t get along with, regardless of gender, no matter where you go. 

Have you tried considering that she has something going on in her life outside of work and doesn’t know how to handle it, and therefore brings it to work?

I’ve had more experiences with men being assholes at work than women, but I don’t say all men are sexist pigs. It really bothers me when women put down their own sex.

You hate 90% of women because you’ve worked with a couple immature ones? I think you need a bigger sample than that for such a lofty statement.

Anna113619:  but you can understand when you are addressing a community of women why they might not be impressed by your claim that you hate all women.

and news flash from someone who works with mostly men, there are jerks in every gender. youre just to young to be irritated by mansplaining and sexism. It will come.

Geeze, OP exaggerated a bit because she’s having a bad day. Give her a break with all the sexist comments. 

 

OP, I’m sorry you’re having a bad day.

whitepeacock:  Exactly. I will never understand it either. If YOU are a woman and you possess the powers of reason, rationality, and self-control, then ALL women can’t be horrible, right? Maybe it’s just that some PEOPLE are immature and lack control — men and women alike. This statement always bugs me (not singling you out, OP — I know tons of people who say this thing). 

As a woman, I just hate perpetuating the stereotype that women are catty, child-like creatures who canot control their emotions or use reason.
