One of the things that I will forever be grateful for in this lifetime is the number of female friendships that I have built along the way. And call me biased or whatever, but ‘Girl Power‘ is an incredibly real and beautiful thing. But the number of girls who have each other’s backs constantly only reaffirms my faith in female friendships.
On this note, I recall a very funny incident from about a month ago. I tweeted about female friendships being an uplifting thing in our lives and some random dude tried to tell me that females are biologically and psychologically wired to tear each other down because of ‘intra-sexual competition’ or something.
I beg to differ, and I find it hilarious. If men have something called the ‘bro-code‘, women have the ‘sis-code‘ that encompasses a lot more than just not vying for the man your best friend has an eye on. It is an unspoken, but very real and powerful sisterhood that is and always will be beyond compare.
Girls don’t even compete for the same guy anymore. It’s 2019, for crying out loud! We just say something like ‘You go, gurl!‘ or ‘Get some, gurl!‘ and politely back off. I don’t know what century the random dudebro is living in and I hope that he crawls out from whatever rock he has been living under.
More times than I can count, a girl I’ve never even spoken to or I don’t even know about has left nice comments on my social media, hyped me up, or has backed me up against online trolls, saved me a seat on the train, or complimented me on something or the other. And honestly, it doesn’t even feel weird at this point.
I don’t think I can say all this about every male friendship in my life. But I can assure you that every single female friendship that I’ve built has started on some kind of a positive and empowering note. There is not a single day that I don’t learn something new from my girlfriends. And honestly, who wouldn’t love to have that kind of friendship in life?
So here’s to all the women in my life, whether I know them or not, because we girls have to stick together, don’t we? I see you, all of you, trying your best to be nice to each other, trying to fight for each other– solidarity in every single sense.
We are truly powerful. Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise!
