It seems that my news feed on Facebook is full of everything BUT things about my friend’s actual lives. I went on a bit of a rant about it last night on Facebook after I realized I was missing VERY important posts of my friends and seeming to never miss the ‘shared’ posts/memes and political articles. (seriously do you think you are going to persuade someone to vote for your candidate by posting a nasty thing about the other candidate? …that’s another post altogether)
One thing that I seem to see quite a bit is the discrepancy between describing men and women. A woman might be described as a b*tch and a man as aggressive. The sad thing is that I am not even talking about men using these words, it’s from women. Why do we feel the need to say crude things about each other? Now don’t get me wrong, there are definitely times that I think women can be B*tches (and calling another woman a B when she doesn’t deserve it, is one of those times) I’m actually sitting in Starbucks right now (shock) and there is a woman who I’ve seen here many times. She carries herself very ‘proudly’ and doesn’t speak to anyone. Part of me wants to say she’s a b*tch. I don’t know her, I’m just judging her on the actions I see for a short time. Why don’t I try to think of another word to describe her? Why do I not think that she’s shy or reserved? If I really analyze my thoughts…Is it because she intimidates me with her perfect hair, perfect figure and great clothes. It might actually be that. So to make myself feel better, I call her a b*tch.
I would hate to have someone call me a b*tch to my face or behind my back. How about we try to be more positive use some new words to describe each other. Words that don’t beat each other down.
My favorite word is Sassy.
