Pardon My French

" To me, a bitch is assertive, unapologetic, demanding, intimidating, intelligent, fiercely protective, in control---all very positive attributes. But it's not supposed to be a compliment, because there's that old stupid double standard: When men are aggressive and dominant, they are admired, but when a woman possesses those same qualities, she is dismissed and called a bitch....
.... I strive to be a bitch, because not being one sucks. Not being a bitch means not having your voice heard. Not being a bitch means you agree with all the bullshit. Not being a bitch means you don't appreciate all the other bitches who have come before you."
