    Ok this seriously bothers me.

    My parents are straight up you shouldn't swear people. But here's the thing they both swear and they don't get all holier than thou on my two older brothers. Their reasoning? "It's not proper for a 'young lady'". I'm 20 years old and I'm nor allowed to say ****? Damn...

    I'm Such a Chicken
