Women Hating Woman

Another Kind of Misogyny 


 

As much as some men deplore woman,

women hate women.

Not feminine enough for them,

they hold unjustified contempt.

Some hate themselves,

thinking they are damaged.

Self-loathing justifies

Hurting others.

Or the “she-devil” sees herself

With manly virtues

of rationalizing, intelligence and strength. 

A Narcissist destroying

any female she touches.

Her own worst enemy.

Passing as comradery, beneath lies,

she victimizes and destroys

what should be bonds of love.
