Happy Tuesday everyone. Yesterday Serena asked me a very simple question. She said she had recently heard that bitch is a bad word and she doesn’t understand why? She asked me if it means anything different then a female puppy and I told her no not really but it is used as a slang word in many cultures. Then she asked me why and it made me pause for a second and then I explained to her that in all societies at some point being a woman was less than being a man and also In a lot of societies even today dogs are looked down upon. So calling someone a bitch would be the ultimate disrespect.
As I was talking to her I realized that these words play a bigger role than we think. They are still there to put a lower standard subconsciously in societies’ minds. I don’t know why and how it becomes culturally appropriate to label these things as insults and slurs but it is about time we start changing this mindset.
Since the change in society comes from all of us I am doing my part to educate myself and my daughter by understanding and realizing that there is nothing wrong with being a bitch. Actually, I think it’s a wonderful thing to be. I think being a female dog is brave, strong, loyal and beautiful.
So yes I will always be a badass bitch and will teach my daughter to never give into cultural norms. To continue to form her own ideas and thoughts and continue to question things.
It is funny how sometimes our children become our mentors and I am so glad to have a young philosopher in my own house that continues to help me unlearn in more ways than I can imagine.
So now that I have given my lecture let’s get back to fashion. Can you believe that this top was $12 from forever 21 and I picked up the shorts from the clearance rack too. I have added similar items here. The bag is from ASOS and you have seen it in my other posts as well.
As always thank you for stopping by I always appreciate your feedback so please do leave a comment and let me know if you enjoyed the topic or just liked the outfit.
Have a great rest of the week and I will be back with another post soon. Ciao Bellas!
