Funny, I have always heard "Hell Hath no Fury like a Woman's Scorn" - but even that is f**ked up.The phrase, Hell Hath no Fury like a Woman Scorned was first coined by the English Playwright William Congreve.
William CongreveThe phrase supposedly means that a woman will become very angry when a man does her wrong.
Yes, William Congreve has clearly made a contribution to our modern society. This phrase has been heard by almost everybody, and it is a warning to men - to not wrong a woman.
I believe in modern times, the phrase is something much different. I believe that the function of the phrase in our modern society is to mask the true nature of women.
I have noticed that women can scorn a man for no reason whatsoever. In fact, I believe that they often scorn their men when they are the ones doing him wrong.
That is my observation, and I do live in my small corner of the world - I realize that. But every occurrence of a relationship I have seen typically results in the scorn of a woman - a modern woman to be more specific - even when the man is doing the woman no wrong.
By using the term scorn (or the alternative wrath), it is implying that women always have a valid reason when getting angry at a man - when in fact, they are venting their own self-hatred on the man in their life.
Why do so many modern women act this way?
I honestly cannot say. However, I think that this phrase is inaccurate and should be replaced with something more descriptive of modern women.
Does pointing this out make me a misogynist?
