Women don’t support other women

«Okay, here’s what no one’s willing to say about Caitlin Clark not being chosen for the U.S. Olympic basketball team. Everyone is asking, ‹Oh, how could this happen?›
Uh, I know exactly how it happened.
It’s because the biggest threat to women is other women. When men are successful, guys want to be friends with them. They’ll wear their jersey, they’ll get the same haircut, they might even dress like them.
Men try to actually surround themselves with more successful men. But women, they don’t see a popular, successful woman as someone to be friends with, someone to elevate themselves with.
No, no, no.
She is a target. She is to be taken down. And in classic female form, they don’t like that this new girl is getting all the attention.
Also, don’t even get me started on the fact that she happens to be white. We’ll cross that bridge another day.
You’d think this would be such an obvious decision, but no. No, silly. And I would just like to say that women, who are always complaining about how men don’t support women’s basketball, women don’t support women’s basketball. Name one girl you’ve ever seen wearing a WNBA jersey. And that is why we can’t have nice things.»

Very interesting video by Arynne Wexler (via The Rubin Report): What Women Won’t Admit About Why They Don’t Like Caitlin Clark ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1BFPvGkB4M ). The transcript is the quote above.

And yeah, giving how women want to be admired — by the right people — and how intra-sexual competition among women works, totally agree. «Crabs in a Bucket» might seem like a stereotype, but in many cases, it is true.

So, yeah, Kudos, Ms. Wexler, well put.
