A blogger I know said something that gave me pause. She said that "in real life, women are catty and competitive." She's surprised how polite and considerate bloggers are online when, in her personal life, she sees women behave differently.
Is this true, in your experience? Do women behave differently online? Or is the explanation that fashion-bloggers are nice people and the women who behave badly aren't bloggers? Are all women "catty and competitive" or just some?
I've had the good fortune to be able to converse with several of you and I've found you all to be kind, sweet and caring people. I don't see women acting badly online or in real life. I concede, however, that my interactions with women aren't representative of female behavior. In person, women perceive me as a man, not a woman, so they don't show me the same behavior they show other women.
What do you think?
