Hissy fit incoming!

Today, my boyfriend’s female "best friend" hates me for absolutely no other reason other than she, "just doesn’t get along with girls." Boyfriend doesn’t see a problem with this, and insists I should just accept it since, "that’s just how she is." Time to throw the whole man away. FML

Yea, fuck that noise.
Seriously it wouldn't even matter which gender his best friend is, as soon as they decide "I'll never like one of your girlfriends just because they're girls", and him being fine with that, it's a lost cause lmao. Good luck to him being friends with someone who's gonna ruin every attempt at a serious relationship he'll have.

I didn't realize I was required to screen my friends through my partner. It would be as asinine as demanding, as a friend, that all my friend's partners be screened through me. Not everybody has to like everyone, and other people's personal prefrences are none of your business. You don't know her reasons. Imagine telling a female rape victim with PTSD or anxiety she has to befriend your boyfriend or else she's not your friend anymore

Yea, let’s bring up rape victims. Makes sense.

See, I have this weird thing where I want my best friend and boyfriend to get along. Crazy, I know. But if my best friend decides not to like him because of his gender and no other reason I wouldn’t just shrug it off. My best friend not giving my boyfriend a chance would show a huge lack of consideration for ME. And me not caring that my boyfriend is hurt by it would show a huge lack of consideration for HIM.

But you do you. Fuck consideration, eh? Who cares if the people you’re supposed to care about don’t like each other? Can’t see that being a problem ever.

If you give your partner ultimatums like that you’re a horrible person. You should be accepting your partner for who they are and all the friends they come with.

I hated my best friends girlfriend (later his wife) because I could see she was a self-absorbed lying individual who used people and then threw them away. I knew he did not see her as this assessment of the woman he loved and so I gave him support in his relationship knowing he would need it in the future. She is soon to be his ex-wife having nearly driven him to suicide by her behaviour. As a best friend, you sometimes have to step back and let them make mistakes as trying to prove they are making a mistake is not your job. It sounds like she wants more than just a best friend role to your boyfriend.

I'm with you. Nobody has a right to anyone else's friendship, and a requirement that all friendships in a romantic relationship must be shared is controlling. Who I associate with is my business

She probably doesn’t “hate” you. Hate is an intensively strong word. I grew up without a mom, around all guys, and ended up having major anxiety to this day whenever I try to hang around other girls. It SUCKS. It IS stupid and there’s no good reason for it, and everybody deals with different situations or feelings or barriers in different ways... bottom line, if you like the guy, maybe try to look a little deeper into his friend’s shoes. I’ve never hated my guy friends’ girls, but I’ve never been able to bring myself to hang out with them. And that’s how I am. Good luck
