A word is just a word, no matter what connotation society attaches to a title, we are our own worst enemies when we attach what we believe that title should mean to ourselves through others labels. I’ve been called an asshole, a bitch, a cunt, and most obviously a whore, and not a one of those “names” causes me to lose sleep, like Mom and Dad said, “ticks and stones may break my bones, but names only make me more colorful and creative.” …. Okay maybe that was just my Mom and Dad. (-:
In short, know who you are, don’t let anyone tell you who you are, and if they attempt to with their ignorance and cruelty, turn in on them, redefine it and wear it proud. (-: I’m taking it back.
