Academy award winner Helen Mirren is a well respected actress that I've seen in movies like The Queen, Red and Red 2. This was some advice that she shared that young women should listen to...
If I’d had children and had a girl, the first words I would have taught her would have been “fuck off” because we weren’t brought up ever to say that to anyone, were we? And it’s quite valuable to have the courage and the confidence to say, “No, fuck off, leave me alone, thank you very much.” You see, I couldn’t help saying “Thank you very much,” I just couldn’t help myself.
I love this. Women, ladies and girls take so much shit for being a female and too often are expected to be courteous and keep their mouth closed. However, I believe the idea of standing up for yourself and basically being a righteous bitch is the way to go when it comes to keeping your head up and exuding confidence.
Ladies, being a bitch is not an insult. It simply means you stand up for yourself, speak up when necessary and never lie down when being put down in any way. Now this doesn't mean you should be called out your name, but just know that when man calls you a bitch you've truly agitated him and it will make him rethink his approach because he knows your are not weak like the others. Besides it's better than being called...a hoe, slut, whore, loose, cunt, trick, tramp, stupid, or dumb girl. And there are many more but the damage is down.
Always respect and appreciate the women in your life. Always remind and congratulate them on how strong and beautiful they are.
