Rant straight from my mind to the paper….no rough draft.
“You talk too much.” Three different people I know have told me this over the past week. These were all men of course. This phrase has me so agitated.
What year is it? I thought women were allowed to vote now. Oh, wait I forgot. We are supposed to keep our months shut and walk around barefoot and pregnant. Women are expected to look beautiful but not speak?
Tired of the double standard! Women do not even make the same pay as men in this country. Still? That is crazy.
First of all, why is it wrong for me to talk about sex? I thought this was 2012 and the subject of sex was open for discussion. apparently, I am incorrect. People often look at me in shock. I am who I am. My brain does not have a filter when I speak. If my brain thinks about something that is “X” rated. I say it out-loud.
I thought I was allowed to talk about sex, but I guess I “talk too much.” It is only said I talk too much, when speaking about sex. I have always been comfortable with my own body and can speak on any subject without getting embarrassed. I would not be bothered by being completely naked on a beach, not because I love myself, but because it is freeing to not care what other people think.
Why is it, if a woman enjoys sex, people call her a sl*t? If a man enjoys sex, he is a hero. Sex is a natural part of life. I really cannot believe that at present day, I still have to avoid the topic.
Well, I guess I better go get all prettied-up and put some duck tape over my mouth.
Oh, better take my shoes off and get pregnant too. Barefoot, pregnant, beautiful and quiet. That is what my requirements are?
Like to take off my pants and show every person that said those words to me, my bare bottom. I would love to write “kiss it” on my bottom.
Just a tad agitated – maybe it was the country music.
Are you sick of the double standard?
