"Belligerent" is one of those choice words that has been reserved exclusively for females, and particularly females with power and authority. You probably have never heard a man being referred to as "belligerent" or "disrespectful" but men always seem to think that women should be more respectful to them.
The Lord God Almighty knows that the only way by which the kingdom of God can move forward is if every person considers the other person to be better than themselves. If each person thinks of themself when they are about to say or do something, then says and does something better than what they would have wanted said and done, they will have considered the other person better than themself. Do this every time you are tempted to be critical of someone.
The Lord God Almighty El Shaddai
