I think it's an important line, but for a different reason.
I don't hang out with anyone who trash talks, period. It says more about the person talking than the person being trashed.
That's not to say my gf and I won't sometimes "vent" about our frustrations with our husbands. But we acknowledge that we're upset with the situation or the behaviour, not bashing the men themselves.
