I hate the word “woman.” Ugh, its so pretentious and gross sounding. I feel like I’m constantly expected to live up to this title and its exhausting. Its gotten to the point where I sometimes get a feeling of spiders crawling up my back when I hear it. Often when I hear it being used against me in any way, even subtly… I get the urge to slap them over the back of the head with a shoe.
I tolerate the term lady. I especially like the term “young lady.” It sounds respectful and modest. It sounds like the opposite of what a controlling and pretentious dick bag would say.
@Dan_Lyons Thank you for that, it helps a tiny bit but I still hate the word. I can barely type it out. lol. Its going to take a lot to get me through my hate for it! Girls have wombs too, they don’t really get a special word do they? Well they get the word girl but its no supposed to be as intricate as the W word.
Yeah…if women is offending then…no, one silly thing that got to me once was while watching Dracula Love Never Dies. Abraham sees Mina and Lucy and he calls them ’‘beautiful creatures’’. Kinda insulting. Women aren’t ’‘creatures’’ for fuck sakes.
@Dutchess_III If you often heard that people expect more from you as a grown woman, if people used the word against you in such a demeaning way, you wouldn’t find it condescending? I find that hard to believe. I guess you have had better experiences with it. I am trying to see it in a more positive way as well but it isn’t easy after my experiences.
