Think about the first name you were ever called,
and then think about how long it took until
you got called a “pussy”
or a “slut”,
or a “bitch”,
or a “whore”,
all of which are words that fall too close to “girl”.
Think about the first time you got called a “girl”
and they said it with a sneer.
Like it was a bad thing.
For a boy, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
For a girl, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
Remember, black widow spiders and female praying mantises
eat their partners after intercourse.
Remember, it’s the lionesses who hunt.
They come back with bloody muzzles,
dragging bloated carcasses as the alpha lion strides around
with his mane puffing out.
Remember, it’s only the female mosquitoes who drink blood.
We’re the ones who do the necessary work,
dirty our hands,
fuck or fight or both.
We’re often the smaller sex, which
makes us a harder target
as we slink close and sink our teeth in.
Remember: we’re deadly.
You should be proud to be called a girl.
