In fiction, it seems women can't be friends (or aren't very good friends) because they tend to be bitchy towards each other. Often a female protagonist has no more than one or two female friends, but she can't seem to make anymore because they're either Alpha Bitches or there's something about the protagonist that keeps off other females.

Examples

Western Animation
  • Family Guy
    • Lois Griffin seems to have a problem trying to make friends with women. As she said in "And Then There Were Fewer" when she tried to be friends with Diane Simmons. She thought she made friends with the new female newscaster, but she turns out to be a former classmate of Lois who held a grudge against her for humiliating her (as Lois was an evil cheerleader). Her only female friend seems to be Bonnie. Even she called Lois a "slut" when word got out that she once starred in a porn film.
    • In one episode, Stewie put Lois, Meg, and Bonnie in a simulation with amnesia. When they first encounter each other, they quickly start scratching and pulling each others' hair.
  • The Simpsons. Marge Simpson doesn't have that many female friends. Most even shun her, mostly because of Homer's stupidity. One time, she tried to have some women over, but Homer came in with a skunk. She use to be part of a group of women called the Springfield Investorettes (which includes Helen, Maude, Agnes, Luann, and Edna) who voted her out for being too conservative.
  • In Fairly Oddparents, Wanda doesn't have that many female friends (only two are seen). Having an idiot for a husband probably didn't help much either. Some of the more beautiful women hate her because she's plain, AND for Juandissimo pining over her.
