Do men make better friends?

February 18, 2010

Are jealous, competitive women driving their mates away? Kelly Osbourne and Megan Fox say yes. Have your say!

It’s a debate that has raged for years – “are women too bitchy?” But just when you thought we were all getting better at being nicer to ourselves and each other social networking tools have created a new ground for mean girls.

Kelly Osbourne says most of her friends are men because women are “jealous haters”.

The reality TV star claims she is often criticised for having lots of male pals, but insists it is rarely worth befriending females because they are so catty.

“People think I’m odd, because my friends are men, they don’t realise it’s because nowadays girls are such haters … it’s not that people hate on me I’m use to it I see tweets and you girls are all so mean to each other it’s all because of jealousy it’s wrong (sic),” Kelly wrote on her Twitter page.

“Get it together ladies I just don’t get how it makes you feel better to hate someone else! Maybe there is something wrong with you not them! Again no one is hating on me it just makes me sad to see what some of you guys write each other! (sic).”

Megan Fox, who is the latest cover of W magazine, agrees saying she does not have many female friends because they are all too jealous and mean.

“I don’t trust people in this industry, but I especially don’t trust girls in this industry, because it’s incredibly competitive, and I’m just not interested,” she said.

This begs the question … do men make better friends than women? They don’t bitch, whinge, gossip or compare themselves to their friends. They don’t desire their partner, hair, clothes or boobs (okay, maybe their boobs but for different reasons!) But can they offer the comfort, support, understanding and fun that a woman can? Have your say!
