I have seen the evidence of this type of through thick and thin friendship amongst males. Okay my anecdotal proof wouldn’t stand up in court but this homey brotherly-ness is something I rarely see in women…in spite of the #MeToo movement. There, I said it! And let’s face it, the #MeToo movement would hardly have been necessary had women had each others backs in the first place!
An example was a news story I read about a man beating up his wife for no good reason. He had pounded her face into a red/black mush. The man found great support in the news story comments from men who were inventing reasons on the go as to why it was reasonable for the beating to occur because some way, some how, she must have provoked him.
In this case it actually was not her fault. Not that anything justifies a beating, but she had received her black and purple eyes on mere suspicions derived from all the jealous craziness dreamt up by her whacko attacker.
Apart from a few lone sane men on the comments, most were backing the pyscho. This is a beefier bro code version of the piece at the top i.e we will back our bruh through thick and thin, right or wrong.
What Say You?
Am I wrong? Have you examples of women backing other women to the hilt…right or wrong? In fact especially when they know it’s wrong to back them, just to keep up the sister code?
Is there even a sister code? I’ve heard of the girl code but I’ve never seen it in action. Is it basically a myth?!
