Why Do Women Love To Gossip and blame it on Men?

While gossip forms one of the oldest and (still) the most common means of spreading and sharing facts and views, it also has a reputation for the introduction of errors and other variations into the information thus transmitted. The term also carries implications that the news so transmitted (usually) has a personal or trivial nature. Compare conversation.

Some people commonly understand gossip as meaning the spreading of rumor and misinformation,

Women have at one time or other destroy there marriages and friendship as a result of gossip…… women can you please tell us why you enjoy to gossip a lot . 20 hours on the phone, internet taking about people. Is it a disease or a bacteria? Can it be treated?

Men that are meant to over see the family also gossip, ? what do they gossip about?

Men gossip too, but they disguise theirs, it's not gossiping, it's stating the facts, it's discussing, with women we don't bother to cover it up. It's an interesting subject, fire away!!

I have a few male friends, you just mention the name of a girl or guy they don't like or agree with and they 'offer their honest opinions' about the subject. Telling me the negative traits, the turn-offs, what she should work on e.t.c. and then they coat it with; 'but I don't like talking about other people.' and you immediately forget that they were gossiping. It's still the same no matter how you look at it.

The only thing I would say is that the extremes of maliciousness that women go to usually exceed the extents men do, and how often women gossip usually exceed how often men do.

Women through jealousy towards another woman can begin to gossip, most men are usually appreciative and look up or are in awe of other successful men, women tend to be more jealous (secretly in awe).

from my experiences I must say that some of the big gossipers are nigerian men in a foreign country.go listen to them when they meet in the afro shops , the way many of them spoil eachothers reputation with lies and idle talk ,jelausy and envy is often hard to understand.

@ Yimiton

I think i like u, U r a real woman

its very hard to find a honest woman who admits their true gossiping nature

All we see are wannabes who like secrets and darkness and wanna blame others as faultier than them

One thing people fail to realise is that talkative gossiping women are most likeable and safer to be with.

Actually a non gossiping woman is more capable of deadliest of crimes like MURDER, find out about serial killing, evil deceptive women then u will understand what i mean.

u be correct chick jare be urself!

Hay iice,

Thanks for link. I'll check it out although I'm afraid it will never be as cool as hearing it on E! with Guilliana De Pandi and Ryan Seacrest. But it's better than nothing.

I didn't use to like Aniston as well but I've been loving her recently, I loved her in break-up and some how Tery Hatcher (fell in love with her in Deperate housewives) simply reminds me of her.

I'll just run along and check this link cos if we decide to talk more here, mine oh mine, this will become a very very long thread.

Do have a nice day!

@iice and Yimiton

You both have officially made this thread the 'Hollywood Gossip Thread'

There are three things that bring Men together.They will always talk about it.

Money,Sports(football here in Naija) and Women(well sex is a better way to put it).

Now its not not who is sleeping with who but who is worth the trouble of sleeping with.

Tell me that is gossip, Ill say its just 'gisting'

Women love gossip because most of them have nothing doing; we all know that an idle mind is the devil’s workshop; and most women have made themselves the devils workshop due to idleness.

Oh my gosh!

tell me about diddy. We all know the guy has too much money! You know, the last time I saw him was on Ellen D's show, he said he sleeps very late and he was asked what he does with all his time, he said 'he loves to make love a lot'!

Every one laughed and they teased him about his wife's pregnancy with twins.

I sort of like the guy sha, he's cool.

Usher, Usher, do you know what ever happend between him and chilie, I never really got to follow the story of y they broke up, they seemed good together and it beats me y he always seems to be attracted to older women.

Yes, about Britney and her 2 kids, I feel for her but she should have seen it coming with those parties she never seemed to be tired of. I've not been seeing her around Paris lately, is there any wahala between them?

What about Nicol's pregnancy, with that very thin body of hers, i wonder how she's managing with the pregnancy. You know her BMI is lower than normal, My gosh, I hope she goes through with it. Not heard about her since after her few hours jail term.

Please, tell me what more has been happening, not really been current, I got a new job and it's really demanding. Get home too late and tired for T.V.

@ iice,

Bring it on hon! Gossip could be real sweeett!

Old gist shay, but I love the feel of it. I hope the baby is as beautiful as she.

And u know what, she's 10 yrs older than her boy friend and doesn't even have the intention of getting married. Said she prefers to have the baby outside wedlock!

Gossip could be real fun.

I love to gossip holly wood stars, especially who's dating who and who's dumping who, who's getting married, who's getting a divorce and who's having a baby.

It's always fun, that is why E! entertainment is my all time best T.V. Station!

Bad thing about gossip though is if you talk about it without getthing the facts, you feel a kind of shame when u finally discover you said what wasn't true.

So ladies be careful with gossips.

hi, women actually gossip more than guys 'cause they are meant to speak 50,000 words per day. there is no better way of doing so other than gossiping. imagine a woman who hasn't spoken more than 500 words in a day, the amount of "carry over" words she would have for the following day. mmmmmhhh women!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lips sealed

you sound really funny infact u make me laugh, that isn't enough reason for women to gossip more than men, i think gossiping comes as a result of idleness and therefore i suggest women should get themselves involved in constructive activities .

Little mind gossips stupidly,while great mind discuss positive issues, be it woman or man.Some people don't have any thing positive to talk about,it is like jackass for real.

I find it sad that people often wish to genderise issues to the point where they now make the next gender appear silly or silly or both. Anyway, as far as gossip goes, its a cross-gender malaise. Saying only women gossip is like saying only women are gold diggers. In fact, most of the most damaging gossip I have ever heard has come from men. I have loads of male friends so I know what I'm talking about.

So for me, the real question would probably be 'Why do people gossip atall?' but I guess I should make that another thread shouldnt I? lol.

Women gossip because they were not created but made. The rib God took from papa Adam was the rib of gossip.

Did you get something now? The Rib of gossip was used in making women hence they gossip.

Men gossip just as much as women, just about different things.

For example, a man's most likely to double date AND tell their friends about extra marital affairs.

While gossip among women is ridiculed as low and trival, gossip among men especially about women is called theory or idea or fact.

when men want 2 gossip they gossip times 2

It used to be men discuss, women gossip. But these days some men gossip twice as much. Anyway, gossip is meant for ideal minds because 24 hrs is barely enough for me to do my runs and hit my laptop.

Where did you hear that women gossips more than the men?

U know what, I use to think exactly like you, I guess that’s why I don’t have less that 5 females friends but something I’ve realized for the past 8months have been on Nairaland is that Men gossips that we women, and speaking from my experience on Nairaland
