When the Oxygen channel came out with the reality television show, “The Bad Girls Club,” I refused to watch it. Now, after two and a half seasons I am glued to the show. I just finished watching the marathon. Though the girls, or characters, are interesting, they are not phenomenal in any way. The real appeal of the show is the drama, arguments and physical fights between the roommates in the Bad Girls Club house. I fell deep into this trap this week while watching the violent show. While watching the marathon I was cheering on the roommates when they got into bar brawls with customers and clapped my hands when one of the roommates that I didn’t like got cussed out by a roommate I did support. I watched the drama and nodded my head with the confrontation. That is, until the newest episode. The episode that aired this week, Amber M. was attacked by three of her roommates. In the fight her hair was snatched, she was punched, slapped, pushed onto the pavement and kicked once in the head. After the fight Amber M. retreated to a different hotel room and the other roommates celebrated their actions. This episode disgusted me and made me take another look at the image that I was supporting.

Females getting into fights is not a new trend in reality television. However, it is a trend that needs to stop. As women, we should be conducting ourselves in an honorable way. We should not be calling each other “bitches” “sluts” or “whores.” It saddens me to see women tear each other down.

Women insulting each other also opens up the door for others to do the same. I a a firm believer that, if you keep calling a female a bitch, a male will feel that he can, too. As women, we disrespect each other too much to have a man doing it as well.

I am tired of seeing the rip between women widen.
