    So far in 2016, I grew out my armpit hair

    and dyed it pink because I wanted to and I loved it. Unapologetically female.

    The funny thing about a strong woman is

    that she doesn't need you . . . she WANTS you. And if you start slacking she'll be content without you. ;-)

    Today I used my self defense expertise at yoga!

    A man was calling me names and whistling when I bent over. Finally, I snapped and straight kicked him in the chin which rendered him temporarily unconscious. My point here...don't mess with me just because I'm a woman.

    while I do think women are overall different

    from men in many aspects, I am tired of people pushing constricting gender roles on everyone. just let people do what they want. wouldn't you rather have a happily "feminine" woman rather than someone begrudgingly acting that way?

    But, when I zumba one of the routine is to "Roar" and after awhile you cannot help , but learn the lyrics. Now, I will admit the part about "I got the eye of the tiger/dancing through the fire" , makes little sense to me. But, I identify with a bit of it. This for example: "I...
