Women aren’t

    The ‘slut’ and ‘frigid’ points really sum it all up. Sometimes I feel like I’m trying to balance in the very fine space between what gets you labelled a slut and what gets you labelled frigid, and then I realise that only douchebags with massive insecurity/anger issues would use those terms anyway. Another great one, Vicky!

    I’ve been called hysterical. A man would definitely never be called that. Because big tough men have no emotions and women are emotional wrecks, obvz.

    Oh my do you ever get called "dramatic"? I mean yeah I’m an actress and I know when it’s a compliment but to have your health concerns minimized like thus:

    "I’m thinking of getting back into therapy because I’m feeling depressed lately."
    "Oh I’m sure that’s not necessary, you’ve always been dramatic."

    GRRRRR that one toasts my buns! Great post!!

    but I actually don’t even care because I’m pretty happy as I am 🙂

    So true! I get very annoyed when people slap derogative labels on women, and it’s even women vs women in this world, so many times do I see so many young ladies call another one of these names, especially ‘slut’ and ‘attention-whore’. There’s always so much call for equality and less competition among the female sex, yet you see a lot of hate and rudeness aimed at each other, let alone from the male sex.

    I’m definitely a bossy person around the home, so I completely get it when my partner and housemate both grumble about me telling them to properly wash the dishes. But one time I went off at my housemate because he assumed that I was on my period when I was having a very bad day and I had told him off for doing certain things the wrong way. Told him that if he ever made that assumption again with another chick, he would be very lucky to come out of it unscathed. And the sad thing is that the bloke is gay, and for him to stereotype women like that is very offensive. Just because I’m fed up with seeing food scraps stuck to plates and utensils over and over again, does not mean that I’m on my period. Seriously.

    P.S.: Sorry about the rant, this stuff really gets me all riled up.
