Bitchy Seems to be a Perfect Word

The following was sent to me as an email on Friday of last week (and actually the timing could not have been more apropos given the then-current circumstances), and has since shown up on several boards/sites I also read (apparently there was some massive email invasion of this message last week). The sign of a good bit of internet 'wisdom': it's still funny (and accurate) no matter if you read it at home or away. Or even if you're having a good or a bad day...brutal honesty always rules. Even if it resorts to some name-calling.

Bring on the bitches and the people that love them! Trust me, people, I can very well relate to this (all too well, actually) and fully support its message.

"BITCHOLOGY" (author as yet unknown)

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.

When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.

When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my own way, they call me a bitch.

Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in my heart. It means I live my life MY way.

It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.

When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak against it, I am defined as a bitch.

The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.

It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what they think I "should" be.

I am outspoken, opinionated and determined. I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that!

So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me. You won't succeed.

And if that makes me a bitch, so be it.

I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.
