Women, live your life your way.

She had stayed a virgin so she wouldn’t be called a tramp or a slut; had married so she wouldn’t be called an old maid; faked orgasms so she wouldn’t be called frigid; had children so she wouldn’t be called barren; had not been a feminist because she didn’t want to be called queer and a man-hater; never nagged or raised her voice so she wouldn’t be called a bitch… She had done all that and yet, still, this stranger called her names to vent out his wrath.
Women are expected to be nice and sweet, to make other people feel comfortable. A woman who says ‘hey, I think there’s a problem here’ is being ‘negative.’ A woman who doesn’t smile while she’s being harassed is ‘humorless.’ A woman who prefers to stay focused on tasks is a ‘cold bitch.’ Significant gendering is involved here; women have an obligation to look and act a certain way and when they don’t, they need to be hassled until they do.

Conclusion: Just do not give a f*** and live your life.
Too many people give a damn about what insignificant strangers think of them. The next time, think of this: Are those people putting food on your table? Paying your salary? Do they give a f*** about your general well-being? The answer to this is- No, they don't.

So ladies with that revelation, care not of what these people think of you because at the end of the day only YOU matter to YOU.
