Scratch, hiss, spit...Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Why is it when women disagree with one another it is called a cat fight? How come when men disagree with each other it isn't called a cat fight?

I think that by using the term cat fight, people negate all of the participants' view points. The term makes the dispute less valid and one not to be taken seriously.

The other expression that negates a woman's view is "hissy fit."

What are your thoughts on these expressions?

Have you actually watched cats fight???? I mean really, it isn't hard to see the comparsion. I've always said that men are actually better fighters than women. Men, have a tendency to battle "the" problem out, finish, shake hands, then go have a beer together. Women on the other hand, have a tendency to start a fight on one subject, go off on all kinds of tangents and thus, their fights never, ever end. They also lack the ability to "let go". I'm sure I don't have to point out any examples to anyone.

Women may have long fingernails.....scratching tools... like a feline.
Hiss....well... the high pitch screeeeeeeech that they make when in fit of anger.

I don't know.. I have only gotten into a tussle with two men...oops..make that 3....wait...now.. I kicked the first two....one in the balls...the other across the chest...now the third man...I use that word lightly...he was my EX...and he was going after me.... I took out the claws and fought like a cougar..mtn lion...big cat...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I am woman here me growl.

I agree.. I think a lot of guys duke it out until someone is oozing blood or is taken away by the cops or the paramedics....and they move on. Never saw any of them shake hands.....hmmm...

LOL _ I have actually watched cats fight and I know what you mean, Walts. I think women do fight differently than men - although, I am not exactly what sure what the differences are. Rose - I see your point about finger nails and higher pitched screeching.

Toms are the ones just walking around minding their own business but will protect their territory when called upon. The females are the ones doing the shiat disturbing walking into other's territories looking for,,,,,,,,well,,,,,,,something. Even after get set straight one evening the female pussycats will still come back for more the next night,,the night after,,,and the night after, till their urge for a need subsides. pussycats can get awfully nasty when they don't get what they want,,,,,when they want it.

Since women, of which I happen to be one, lack the sheer physical strength of the male species (unless we're talking German speedskaters but that's a different thread) we tend to have to improvise with what we have. This includes but is not limited to nails (talons), long hair, and we can't forget the emotional buildup that simply must be purged.

I liken males fighting to two Silverback Gorilla's, beating their chests in a show of bravado and aggression. The first to back down relinquishes the prize.

Namely the female with the nails, big boobs and long hair.

Historically, women in North American society weren't trained or experienced in fighting. As such, when they did get in a fight they tended to flail rather than punch, scratch rather than grapple. More cat than pit bull. I've seen a couple of guy fights that were like that too, but in general men are more socialized for fighting and generally have spent more time imaging and frequently preparing for fighting. Even men that have never been in a fight have internalized images of what they look like when fighting that they tend to adhere to, whether the image has an relationship to effective fighting or not.

Men still make up the majority of the visible warriors, but that's changing. Women are taking tai-bo and boxercise, showing up in dojos in increasing numbers and fighting in mixed martial arts. There are a lot more female fighter role models than there were and there are a lot more trained or at least semi-trained fighters than happen to be women. Frankly, there are a lot of women out there right now that could kick most men's butts. No one would accuse them of having a cat fight unless they were deeply uneasy and were trying to make themselves feel comfortable.

It's an archaic sexist term that's headed for the dustbin, but like most archaic sexist terms it's taking its own sweet time getting there.

Cheers,
Mike (capoeira turns much of stereotypical guy fighting style on its head, often literally)

I was unaware that women had valid view points.
The scratching, hail pulling and general flailing that is involved in most womens fights is obviously where the term comes from, but I had to wonder...Where is a Jello Pit when you really need one?

Agreed!

My last and only fight was when I was ten years old and SHE started it lol!
Seriously, I was a geeky wimp with geeky wimp, albeit much older, brothers.
There was no fighting and no talk of fighting in my childhood household or neighbourhood
AND we were in the military!None in any adult homes of my own.

I have travelled the world and across Canada
and lived in most places I went to. I worked in bars for many years.
For the past 15 years, I have volunteered at schools
and spent a great deal of time there.
Most girls are far more vicious and materialistic than ever before.
There is an epidemic of bullying among them.

Since that first and last cat fight a classmate pulled on me,
while doing some routine arguing at 10, I have never seen or even heard about a cat fight!

I think many people talk about this archaic stuff on here to titillate : P
YES, I said tit!

Head wench?
When did she enter the building?
Isn't she in another forum "blending" in with the crowd?

It's an inane term.(cat fight) Completely untrue.
Women are learning to fight, but mainly for more altruistic reasons.
Chiefly self-defense or to make big money.
