Sasha Answers: Sister War
Dear Sasha, My two best friends of 15 years who are sisters, are in an argument. I am unsure of what to do, because I agree with both to a certain extent and I don't want either to feel that I am choosing one over the other or that I am backstabbing them. I have stayed neutral so far and have not talked about one to the other, but I am unsure of how long I can keep it up without hurting any feelings. Let me give you some background on the argument. The older sister, K, has an asshole friend, C. The only positive thing that I can say about C is that he serves in the Marines and has been to Iraq a couple of times. The thing about C is that he likes to stare at boobs, makes sexual comments to any and every woman, puts his hands up the skirts of women he just met, he has two ex-wives who both went to domestic violence shelters and one has a restraining order on him, and the list goes on. C is only 26 by the way. The younger sister, H, has been harassed by C numerous times, and she just recently started a relationship with a wonderful guy who has a great family. H's boyfriend's sister started talking to the asshole, C a few weeks ago. H told her boyfriend's sister what an ass he is, and C is pissed. K's husband is also friends with C, so K and her husband are now mad at H for putting his past and current dirt out there. H only did it to protect her boyfriend's sister. Should I even give advice to either of my friend's about the situation? L
Back. The F-ck. Away.
If you truly want to be a good friend then zip that pie-hole of yours up because trust me, you don’t want to get in between sisters. No joke. They can throw down crips and bloods styles. And yes, it can be horrifying, but the great thing about the sisterly bond is that you can whip some of the most heinous sh-t at each other, but at the end of the day, you make up because, well, you kind of have to. Just tune into an episode of the Kardashians to get what I mean.
So L, hear me out when I say that the only side you should pick is the sidelines.
