    One of my long standing paranoias is about what women say about me behind my back, especially the one who smile politely to my face.

    Especially when you have been lovers with both.

    Pain and anguish are so much better when they’re happening to someone else.

    People will say both good and bad things behind your back. That’s life.

    I dislike gossiping both relating it and hearing it.

    This would be sexist except the comic strip is written and drawn by a woman. ;-)

    That’s one thing—men aren’t ‘two-faced’ like women. If a man doesn’t like you, you know it right away. Unless he is some ’
    coniving low life who wants to ‘stab you in the back’ for your job or parking place.

    I think that’s a somewhat simplistic view of things.

    I’ve been talked about behind my back by both men and women. The advantage I had with the worst of the men is he took me aside at the end of the year and said “I’ve always hated you, even when you were driving me for hours, lending me your car, etc. I find you boring and you don’t do drugs.” which was more honest than most of the women, that I had to overhear or find they eventually started avoiding me despite having pretended to be friends. I wish more people would be honest, and sooner, and not try to befriend to be nice. I do NOT trust anybody any more, unless they are either bluntly unkind (so they wouldn’t act nice to my face unless they meant it) or go out of their way to spend time with me.

    I actually had to ask someone the other month what exactly gossip is, because asking like “did Julia get in to Stanford?” is not gossip, apparently “dirt” is gossip. I’m not sure about just talking mean about people behind their back. I don’t think that’s gossip but I hate it more.

    Good on you… I couldn’t agree more.

    The second part of your statement negates the first. “Back stabbing” — something many men do — is a man’s form of gossip… combined with control issues.
    .
    An honest and good man — and there are many — isn’t two-faced, just as an honest and good woman — and there are many — isn’t either.
