But That's Not Ladylike!
by Lyn Lomasi, Staff Writer
Recently, the subject of cursing has come up often in my circle of friends. One common issue is that some women who curse are often made to feel guilty and told it isn't ladylike. This is not the case with just cursing. It goes even further into many other things.
To that I say "F**k someone else's definition of ladylike".
If you are a lady (or identify as one), you should make your own definition of what ladylike means to you, personally. You and only you can and should determine what your own values are. Like everything else, what ladylike means is going to be very subjective, depending on who you talk to. Why cater to someone else's belief of what it is? This is YOUR life. Ladylike should mean to you whatever it means to YOU.
As for me, yes, I say “the f word” and I say it often. In fact, it's my favorite word. Am I a lady? Last time I checked, I have all the correct parts, so I would say so. I do try to be conscious of what I say around certain people and in certain situations. But again, that's just me. What YOU choose to define as "ladylike" is up to you and you alone.
What is your definition of ladylike? Do you share my favorite word? Do you think there should be a universal definition of ladylike? Tell us in the comment section.

Random awesome f*cking sh*t from the Mouthy Momtrepreneur, like quotes, memes, videos, stories, and more.
I'm a workaholic, work at home mom who educationally rants about life, causes, and random stuff.
Oh, and I like rain.
Let it pour.
