Competition Between Women – Does Beauty Cause Jealousy?

Women can be so beastly to one another. Women can also be the perpetrators of hate towards other girls. Women can instigate and retain a path of destruction towards any other girl.

It may be very uncomfortable to renowned that women can act just as aggressively as men and motive the emotional breakdown in others specifically towards other girls.

There are many diverse and oddly bizarre motives for women behaving badly and jealousy is one of these reasons.

When the inexperienced eye of envy glares from the pulpit of inner vision in a girl, the results can range from mild verbal touch to being downright unbelievably heinous. Due to jealousy, a woman should quickly appear insane. Some behaviors include verbal rages performing irrational and constant; her stiffened body taut from the venom squeezing from every pore. Jealousy is effective and can ruin both the holder and the receiver.

I protected my attitude at the Beauty Myth in every other article but wanted to pay particular interest to jealousy in a female due to beauty noting the Beauty Myth.

The Beauty Myth seems at the overall impact on women and I can be examining the psychological effect on girls. To surmise the idea and give an explanation for the Beauty Myth, here’s a brief précis.

The Beauty Myth is an allegorical ideology about what a female has to appear like to be with ease prevalent in society. Men, for manipulating over girls construct this ideology. The ideology of beauty as in the Beauty Myth isn’t described, consequently, there aren’t any clear hints or demarcation.

There are many methods in which a woman gravitates closer to making herself attractive and to soothe guys and the resulting language, spoken or now not, determines how ladies view themselves. Women then systematically enshrine the essence of the Beauty Myth by using plundering themselves to a regime of incessant grooming which includes using surgery, cosmetics and diets. A lady does no longer ought to be aware of the Beauty Myth to be complicit in its language. The manage over ladies with the aid of guys renders girls out of control in mind and body as she strives for attainment of acceptance. Remember, what the actual concept of splendor ought to appear to be isn’t always described! Whilst this is taking place regionally for women, the girl then sees different women as ability opponents. Women compete with other ladies vying for the eye from guys creating a warfare on each other that may seem comical to some but is in no doubt very debilitating for women reciprocally.



Women comfortably receive striving to acquire the ‘perfect’ weight and hold this perception even on the risk in their personal health. In some contexts, this perfect is not anything brief of experimenting with their life. In a try and mask over her personal loss of vanity, a woman may additionally originate a furtive opposition together with her colleagues, friends or even friends to look like the higher searching consequently greater ideal to guys. Is the archetypal jealous female real or fictitious? Just take a look around you.

Women eyeing up other women while measuring their own selves and now and again leaving others feeling as although they may be below standard. If a particular woman measures against every other girl and feels she is more appealing than she perceives her ‘rival’ to be, just watch her physiology prolifically exchange in an instantaneous. If she perceives this equal ‘rival’ to be providing a characteristic she is keen to in my view gain this equal alternate in her body structure is clear but this time, she retreats inside herself. The Omni-presence of the Beauty Myth is certainly powerful even supposing now not understood via its members. The concept of the Beauty Myth makes ladies jealous in the direction of other girls a truth.

Throughout my working stories in some groups, I have sometimes felt it became better to have a man as a supervisor than a girl. I paintings passionately to enhance women’s lives so how can I possibly justify the preceding assertion? Well, if your girl supervisor is dealing with her personal set of terrible self-perceptions and gracelessly perspectives you as having some thing that she does no longer, well, positioned it this manner, your operating day can be hell. This facts should now not be taken out of context. Women are able to control effectively managerial roles, I am speaking approximately the woman supervisor who might also permit her role to denigrate any other woman based totally on the concept of perceived chance. I am additionally admitting, but uncomfortable that ladies in ‘powerful’ positions can use this to feather their very own pleasure via lowering another women’s purpose. The inception of jealousy no longer just in idea but positioned into practice has a few very untenable developments for the recipient, the acts accomplished towards her is not anything short of bullying. Even in an informal organization of friends, there may be always a few kind of rivalry going on, a few shape of argument stemming from the lack of something, the underbelly being vanity. Yet, if we took a glance back into the lives of a whole lot younger ladies (ages four – eight years vintage), you could see a characteristic in them that might provide an explanation for the neuroticism that follows later on.

Young girls are tenacious; they’re decided and self-assured. They can seem bossy and knows a way to get their wishes completed. They can manipulate others for his or her profits without blinking. The young girl knows who she is and could fight for control in her circle. (This description is architypically of young girls earlier than society teaches them that their voices aren’t to be heard, another discussion!) Many times, the younger lady who perspectives herself as mentally and emotionally robust will searching for pals who seem to her to be the opposite of her tendencies. This manner, she will keep to reign. When she does befriend another young lady who then goes directly to outwardly providing with the same robust tendencies, they’ll continue to be pals however will experience bouts of contention in the direction of each other. However, why they could continue to be as friends needs in addition explaining. The need to reign is secondary in religious terms to the more crucial aspect of getting, nurturing and maintaining buddies. This approach that at the same time as the want to reign is robust, this is borne from the pressures placed on them from their out of doors international. The need for friends is borne from their internal global (unconscious) and is a lot more potent than the need to reign. Young ladies, growing girls and grown females will discover a comfy place with every other that comprises their contention so long as they’re pals. So does this imply that the Beauty Myth perpetuates the trends already located in women and uses it in opposition to them? In my opinion, most definitely a YES.

The competition among women to decorate self to surpass their ‘rival’ isn’t carried out explicitly. There are not any words which are used that decide such acts of contention; the competition is clandestine. There are times when a woman will depict her experience of being at conflict whilst she negatively calls on the ‘flaw’ of her rival, teasing her about her perceived ‘afflictions.’ Or when a woman has been seemed to have ‘accomplished’ the mythological beauty, the backlash from her peers is all too obvious. The sniping, the backbiting or maybe the silent remedies in the direction of to the poor woman are tools which can be used to illustrate the discomfort girls experience closer to their ‘rival’ however borne from their very own lack of a high-quality self-identification. The want to reign (beginning in early age) is ever-present but made more complicated when they turn out to be older and now additionally vying for attractiveness from guys.

Young ladies inside the playground demonstrably sending a few other poor female ‘out to Coventry’ merely for having a high-quality pair of shiny footwear that the reigning female does no longer. The teenage woman who turns on her friend due to the fact that boy she likes isn’t always reciprocal along with her attention-seeking activities. The new woman at work who makes the standardised company uniform appearance relatively perceptively sexy even without attempting. Supermodels are dicing with their health in an try to be the thinnest therefore prettiest amongst her peers. She has learnt that this ensures continuous work for her. Media depict historical past scenes of the clichéd women behaving beastly toward each other within the identical try to reign and be time-honored. Movie celebrities all searching for the decreased weight because the camera ‘places on pounds’ and media shouts out any imperfections on a woman in a public way. Not all exposure is right exposure! Feuds are began by using women with other ladies simply due to perceptions based totally on seems. Especially worsened if the woman superstar is newsworthy and over-exposed. So all girls are by some means affected by beauty and might end up, coupled with a typically feminine trait, increase into jealousy. The tiers to which jealously can extend to, relies upon what the attacking girl feels she has to benefit to extinguish her rival or similarly how she a good deal she has to lose.

Here are some motives of jealousy:

Fearful or cautious of being supplanted; worried of losing affection or role; resentment or sour in rivalry; having to do with or springing up from feelings of envy, apprehension or bitterness; vigilant in guarding something; illiberal of disloyalty or infidelity, autocratic.

The need to experience beautiful therefore widespread by means of self and others is inextricably linked to having better self-esteem. This will increase the opposition in and for ladies. The ‘rewards’ are each self-serving to ladies and for guys. However, with the Omni-presence of the Beauty Myth makes jealously a sure-fire win for guys, whoever wins the opposition, they can’t lose. Until women construct their shallowness on emotions on individualism, compassion for other girls and popularity of different women and their similarly stunning functions, the war with jealousy will maintain. The Beauty Myth keeps to reign over the girl who thinks she reigns. Until ladies understand that they’re guys’s 1/2-witted experience of delusions and will never aspire to genuine equality, they remain incarcerated spiritually. The advent of ‘the woman’ wishes to occur and how that is performed is via know-how who they are and take away self from guys’s expectation. Women then want to accumulate spiritually by turning into aware of their internal sources to begin the exchange off with guys for equality because in the intervening time, guys do not should change with women on same grounds.
