With all the talk of toxic masculinity I wonder if anyone's talking about how toxic females can be. I haven't seen anything printed anywhere, so I'd like to open the discussion. For three years I lived in a four bedroom house with ten people in my extended family. This was while I was sick and unable to live on my own. The household consisted of my father, his wife (my step-mother), his three children, me, my wife, and our three children. During the entire time, my wife and my step-mother waged war on each other relentlessly and I was caught in the middle. The war was about who would make dinner, who would put the kids to bed, when the kids would go to bed, who would clean the house, etc. If you've ever seen the show Everyone Loves Raymond, you might understand. The non-stop war between Raymond's wife and mother over these issues is something I can identify with. Raymond, like me, was caught in the middle in a "no-win" situation. Dr. Laura Schlesinger, who has since been exiled to Siberia for saying the "n" word, noted that a household could have any number of men and they would all get along, but if there were two women in household, there would be non-stop war. Also, note that the Chinese symbol for "trouble" is two women under the same roof. Does anyone else have something to add on this topic?
