    Annoys Me

    I'm 19 and I guess biologically and by society's standards, I am a 'woman'. But I don't feel like a woman at all. Ofcourse this is just my thoughts but when I think of a woman, I think of a mature, classy, stylish and self-controlled person. I may be mature sometimes but I don't...

    Definitely.

    "woman" has too many negative connotations for me. for instance, the whole "blossoming into a woman" thing sucks aspercreme on so many levels that i won't even attempt to list them here. also, "woman" sounds all.....grown up. official. mature...
