Why is that we embrace words that are intended to denigrate our characters? I mean c'mon, the power behind words gives a person power over us... but only... ONLY if we comply. Ok wait, before I head down the road of double standards and desensitization, I want to let you know: I'm heading down that road. Ready or not... I resent sounding "preachy" or "self-righteous" especially over an issue that has been dissected time and time again. We've all heard the, blacks can say "n*gga" and all non-blacks better stand clear of the word and how we have managed to take a dehumanizing word and turn it into a term of endearment. Is it because we've ignored history or are we just that ignorant?? I mean really, NO ONE can justify why we continue to use it and manage to sound educated. So, for me, the same goes with b*tch!!
My girls are not my b*tches. I don't forward that obnoxious text message begging to be sent to all my b*tches who are my ride or die b*tches who will do anything including kill for her b*tches. And most of all, I don't run around screaming, "I'm the baddest b*tch." It's all ridiculous!! Right here is where I should be incorporating examples of prestigious people who are far too educated to stoop to such a level. But this isn't a status or social class thing. This is a respect thing. I have a man as a best friend, I like to be petted/pampered, I go running to the door when my boo comes home... but I am far from a female dog!!
In the words of Caliente on For the Love of Ray J... I'm just keeping it "one hunn-dred" when I say, accepting being called b*tch and calling ya girls b*tches is wiggity-wack!! It's a far cry from cute and screams immaturity. Just my opinion. *Shrugs*. EYEListen
SB: Who remembers this:
A b*tch is a female dog, a female dog can bark, bark is a part of tree, trees are a part of nature, nature is beautiful so get the hell outta here.
SB1+1: I love Pac for this one...
