There's a group of us that have all been pals since early teens so about 8/9 years now. One of them I've never really been close with but always got on.
Lately though I find her so misogynistic Im struggling not to snap.
A few examples would be it came to light recently online (won't say how as very outing) that a guy we know and sometimes socialise with attacked his pregnant ex gf and strangled her. All she could say was that she felt bad for him and how sorry she is it might affect his job if people see it online.
Second is with the ed Westwick rape just after coming out a few of us were discussing it,she said the girl was obviously lying cos ed is so attractive he wouldn't need to rape anyone? confused

Those are just two examples in a long line of little stuff I've started noticing recently and I'm sick of it.

Wibu to just slowly pull away?

I would pull away hastily.

Life is too short and you don’t owe anyone your presence

That second comment is just shock

Pull away she sounds like an absolute piece of work you'd be constantly wanting to challenge her

I couldn't have someone like this in my life. Friendships can come and go. There's nothing wrong with realising that either they have changed or you have, and you no longer feel you can be friends. YANBU to want to distance yourself from her

I am frankly disgusted that any woman could have such an attitude, or actually be that ignorant tbh. It’s nothing to do with men ‘needing’ to rape a woman, it’s about wanting power over her. Definitely get rid!!
