Taking My Pussy Back

 In Empowerment, Sex

Ever hear someone say “Stop being such a pussy,” or “What a little pussy”?

Likely you have and maybe it’s just one of those slang words that doesn’t bother you.

But if you wear a pussy every day, you might have started to become annoyed that one of the most power-wielding parts of your body is used to mean weak, shameful or unwanted.

So, I’m taking it back. I’m taking back my Pussy. And yours, too.

I was surprised to recently hear a person I really respect use the word pussy as a derogatory term. Instead of letting him get away with it, I reframed. Here’s a flavored-up rendition of the conversation:

Friend: “I’ve just been a real pussy lately. I need to get my shit together.”

Me: “So you’ve been incredibly powerful and sacred?”

Friend: “Oh, I see. Point taken.”

Me: “You can call yourself a pussy, if you really mean it. It’s quite a compliment.”

 

Words are incredibly powerful. They have the power to build us up or tear us down. Please, please don’t let others get away with tearing your pussy down. Call them out and take back our pussies.
