Man UP, Girl

Haven't posted in ages, and I come back with a bitchy post. Ah, true Ali fashion :)

You know what I don't like?

Girls that can't do anything for themselves.

The ones that can't open a jar, hang a picture on the wall, check their oil, pump their own gas... It's not like I think you should be able to rebuild an engine, bench press 200, or knock a guy out with one punch, but geez!

I'm no idiot - I know that sometimes the damsel in distress card can be played to our advantage. Sometimes it's nice to feel taken care of, or to make a man feel like they're coming to the rescue. I could meet my husband at the door in a dress and pearls and have dinner ready on the table too, but it would primarily be for roll-playing, and it would most likely end in sex.

But I can't stand when women play their girl card all the time.

You're tough! You're smart! And unless you are a complete idiot, you should be able to figure most things out. Don't be so damn lazy. Don't resort to the 1950s version of a woman. Wikipedia or Google that shit if you don't know how to do it!

I think my husband appreciates the fact that I can do things for myself. That I'm not a pushover. And I thank god that my dad pushed me how to learn to do things that maybe a typical "girl" wouldn't know how to do.

I love the fact that I can depend on myself for things. Strong women are amazing.
