Female Chauvinist Pigs

Standard

This just boggles my mind. I guess it’s not trendy to desire true love and respect anymore. Instead of struggling with the insecurity of not being pretty enough, smart enough, we do away such base emotion by trashing ourselves and amusing ourselves by seeing women the ways male chauvinist pigs see us. It’s funny, really.

Sorry, Aretha, “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” is no longer THE WORD for women. We’ve come a long way, baby!
