She is always badmouthing other women, including their appearance. She feels entitled to criticize a friend’s body (and still thinks she does this because she is “sincere” and “speaks the truth”) and distrusts reports of aggressions suffered by other women. In short: she is a sexist woman. And yes, they do exist.
In a macho society, there are women who, instead of supporting others, actively participate in oppression. On the reality show “A Fazenda”, model Dayane Mello, one of the most toxic participants in the program (she has been accused of racism more than once and, always remember, racism is a crime) is an almost ludicrous example of this type of woman .
The current edition of the reality show, which offers us all kinds of abusive and sexist men, also brings us an example of this other phenomenon that, sad as it may be, is more common than we would like: toxic femininity.
Right at the beginning of the program, she has already done the disservice of doubting the accusations against Nego do Borel. Yes, herself, the participant who suffered an attempted rape within the program by the singer. Before happening to her, he doubted the accusations against him made by ex-girlfriends, among them the singer Duda Reis. According to Dayane, the women who accused lied and Borel would be a “poor man”.
In recent days, Dayane has given other examples of this kind of female sexism. She has cruelly criticized the appearance of other women.
In one of the scenes of the program, model Valentina Francavilla had a new hairstyle and decided to try on a bikini, happily together with her friend Dayane. This is an everyday scene in the lives of us women. Trying on clothes together and asking for a friend’s opinion is an act of complicity. But what did Dayane do? She looked at Valentina’s body and said: “Your belly is a little swollen, isn’t it, friend?” In another moment, she spoke ill of Aline Mineiro’s hair. Rotten. But, unfortunately, almost all women have met others like this.
The worst thing about this type of “friend” is that they often think they’re sincere, they “speak the truth” and that these comments are for our good. And no, they are not, even unconsciously, they are to hurt and diminish us.
We keep complaining about men who are “female sommeliers”. But isn’t Dayane like that too? In addition to commenting on her friend’s “swollen belly”, she has already spoken ill of Marina Ferrari’s body, because, according to her, “a muscular female body is ugly”. Dayane even said that Marina “looked like a man.” Is there a more sexist comment? To justify the absurdity, she said that she was “a model and observed”.
His profession was also used as an excuse for racist speech. In recent days, the model ended up on Twitter’s Trend Topic for saying that light skin was more elegant. According to her, this was not racism, but the “finding of a trend”.
And of course, like most macho women, she used her supposed sincerity and “talking to your face” to justify all this nonsense.
Dayane may not even realize how much she competes with other women and how bad it is for her. But if you meet a colleague like that, run away. A macho woman will end up hurting you.
