Catfight

Did the author really have to call this fight between two women a “catfight”?? Even the title calls it a fist fight. SIGH. More importantly, the author forgot to tell us how much hair-pulling and scratching occurred. Did either of the women have her shirt ripped off??

    Next time I hear the stray cats yeowling around our neighborhood, I’m gonna whip out my camera and get some snaps … because cat fights are super newsworthy!! Apparently!!

      Oh, they totally are. Also, I hear catfights are quite sexy and exciting. So, another reason to get the camera out.

    I’m glad someone posted on this. After I read that I couldn’t finish the rest of the story it left such a bad taste in my mouth. Unfortunately I’ve just skimmed the rest of it now and my brain exploded. Front page news really?

      It’s just so damn weak and lazy. And disappointing. And, as I said, the title calls it a fist fight, and I would be perfectly happy for that to be consistent throughout the article (I’m assuming the title may not be chosen by the author but I don’t really know what the convention/norm is). It’s just so silly. If you asked the author why she called it a catfight I wonder what she would say?

        It smacks of tabloid journalism, perhaps they’re encouraged to use these catchy expressions?

          Well I guess it is a term/expression that evokes a certain feeling or response from some people, which is probably considered a desirable thing.
