Women really do this to other women?

Women really do this to other women?

I have a heard horror stories about women who get into fights with other women ware the winner ends up stripping the loser. I have put off such stories as just the fantasies of the teller.

I did talk to a woman recently, who said she has witnessed such a fight. She assures me that such things do happen and the real ones are the nastiest. They usually happen out in rural areas, if the woman was caught boyfriend or husband steeling.
There are women out there she said, that have had their worst naked nightmare come true.
The one she said she witnessed. She said the woman was caught trying to seduce another woman’s boyfriend; and when she left the bar she was barer than bare foot

And the question is?
Or are you just looking for other people to confirm this?

I have no idea if it's common, but. . .

When I was in 9th grade, I saw two girl-girl fights. One girl (a very large heavy-set gal) was involved in both fights, which she won by doing just what you've described.

One of the girls was wearing a buttoned shirt, which "the winner" ripped open, bulling "the loser's" bra off in the same exchange.

The other girl was wearing some kind of pullover. "Winner" pulled it back over, and was able to snag the bra along with it.

In both cases, breasts were exposed--and you can imagine how much it thrilled all us 8th and 9th grade boys.

That's terrible. Why can't they just break noses and squish balls (I know) like us guys?
I did see a bra revealed once, in high school. Kinda disappointing, IMO.
Peace,

Men Are From Sonewhere, Women Are From....Somewhere Else...

- - - I remember a gal I worked with at one point saying that when she went to college, a friend of hers got into some super-snnoty cheerleader-type sorority. Part of the dreadful initiation rite was that the girl had to stand on a table naked while other girls took magic markers and circled all her fat. The girl telling this was acting as if this was just the absolute, most horrible thing ever....
-And the guys all standing around kept waiting for the awful conclusion, expecting her to get pissed on, or drink vodka and milk till she puked, or whatever.
But that was the end of the story-
-the magic marker was the horrible ending.

And us guys looked at each other and all were all thinking "Oh hell, we've done worse than that to our best friends, for no other reason than just because a good opportunity to do something funny presented itself...."

Especially for young girls, public nudity is a deep shame to which a mere bruise or wound could never compare. Teen girls are incredibly self-concious about their bodies. To forcibly expose another girl is one of the most effective ways of inflicting deep and lasting humiliation on your enemy.

That being said, I personally have never witnessed anything beyond a few torn blouses.

In the "consecutive thread" department, we just now had:

"How could I have gotten this trojan"

immediately before

"Women really do this to other women?"

Lissa explained the situation very well, IMO. I also think a lot of the stripping in fights occurs accidentally, as womens clothing is often not made of the "sturdier stuff" that mens is. Yesterday I chainsawed about...well, about an 5x8x10 foot pile of downed trees for firewood, and I didn't wear a dress to do that in.

I saw a couple girl-girl fights in high school that wound up that way. From what I saw, the girls didn't tend to punch and kick like guys would, they tended to go for clothes and try and wrestle the other one to the ground.

Try handcuffing a teenage girl missing half her clothing who still wants to fight.

It's not the marker itself, or the nudity that makes this sort of scenario so awful to most women. It's the judgement that's inherent in the process. Nobody likes the idea of their best friends sitting in judgement on them and sitting around pointing out all their flaws.

Think about it: how sucky it would it be to have to stand there, utterly defenseless, in the middle of a circle of men who were pointing out that your dick seems to be on the small side, and you've got a pot belly, and you throw like a girl, and you drive like a little old lady, and you have this premature ejaculation problem, and any other deeply personal inadequacies they can come up with.

Also, I've heard that these things often involve permanent markers, which can be a real bitch to wash off. Unless you're willing to scrub yourself raw, you get to look at a reminder of all the ways in which you don't measure up for a day or so.

No offense to anyone, but the more deeply "rural" you get, the more weird customs you'll be bound to encounter.



(Ow! Don't hit, don't hit! I live in the 'country'! In the woods! Next to a cow pasture, even!)

Anyway, I might add...don't women usually have longer fingernails than men? That might help contribute to ripping and tearing off of clothes.

Don't forget the hair... they always go for the hair and try to rip each other's scalps off. I guess that's the main reason why I'd never want to get into a fight with a girl, unless I'm wearing a helmet or somethin'..

Teen boys are also extremely self-conscious about their bodies, although it's probably a lower percentage, since they have more athletics and other "male-bonding" exercises in grade schools. Still, there will always be plenty of put-upon males who are deeply ashamed of their bodies and would feel the same horrible humiliation.

I'd make up extra stuff for them to rag on and do the "Yeah, baby, I'm a loser, but YOU are getting your grins out of watching me naked!" dance. For us, it becomes a joke.

I had heard from some girls in my High School water polo team how girls play extremely dirty and use very brutal tactics. In fact our girls water polo team was much more agressive than our boys water polo team. Some of the things some other teams would do:

-Grow out their toenails very sharp so when treading water in proximity to an opponent, they could use their talons to carve up the legs of their opponents

-Pulling down the upper portion of the opponent's swimsuit in an effort to expose their breasts to distract them.

And FTR, guys do similar types of nudity humiliation rites, just not always in fights. Having someone get 'pantsed' (pulling down the victim's pants/underwear) was really popular in Junior High, and it was an exclusively male thing. And yes, even I got pantsed once in Gym, though I just laughed it off- tactics like that don't work well on people with no sense of personal shame

Rural areas? You mean like Compton and Yonkers?

I've seen this. Also, teenage girls and early 20s girls bite when they fight.

Can't believe no one's mentioned this:

Besides the injury aspect to making an opponent naked in front of other people, tearing off one's opponent's clothes would also make her stop fighting as she tries to cover up her goodies (assuming she has some shame).

Um, guys tend to do this to eachother without the little circle/naked. Why just the lastday I greeted my friend by calling him a dwarfdicked cocksmoker, but then again, we know eachother pretty well, so everything is taken as a joke.

I was a bouncer at a hot bar. When two women got crosseyed with each other, I would shower them with water. They hated me, but no fights. Boyfriends do not like you touching their girlfriends ever.

What's a "hot" bar? Maybe I should go back to drinking.

Tell you what - given their druthers, I bet boyfriends wouldn't mind in the least if you touched their girlfriends, if only in the course of doing your job. But when the bouncer does anything to an obnoxious female, she will usually make the poor boyfriend's life a living hell if he doesn't "stick up" for her, even if she's the onw causing trouble.

On the subways in certain cities, you'll ads for plastic surgeons rather gruesomely offering to repair (inter alia) "torn earlobes." Fairly reliable hearsay reports of catfights in a school containing an equal admixture of mean doughty white farmgirls and mean young Mexican ladies seem to confirm that at least some of those torn earlobes come from yanking off the earrings of pugilistic opponents in hallway confrontations.

Generalization, of course, but women (though slower to come to the point of physical fighting) do not -- when pushed to fighting -- know or care much about that Queensbury dude.

I witnessed a girl fight in high school once. It was progressing toward an assualt on each others clothing. But they fell into a patch of mud and the water cooled them off.

For some reason, they did not want to continue even after we offerd to pay them

A woman who was once in such a fight like told me, that stripping your opponent with a crowd of people to watch has much more lasting effect than just a black eye and a few burses that would heal in a week, especially if it is a crowd people that she knows and gets to see everything.

So then, would it be a particularly intimidating technique for a very self-confident female to strip naked before the fight...? You know, as if to imply "stripping me naked will do you no good, you'd better know how to fight for real or else it's going to be you who gets humiliated."

I got stripped naked after a fight when I was 15

A whole bunch of boys saw me naked and they all laughed. Some girls were watching and they laughed as well. I had to run home naked when it was all over.

JessicaHoyt, we prefer that old threads in General Questions be bumped only in order to add new factual information, not just personal experiences. For that reason, I'm closing this.
