I Am Not a Stereotype


I am not a Stereotype

Stereotypes Hurt.  No More Labels!!

Women of all colors, races, religions ethnic groups and nationalities face double jeopardy.

I will not be defined by the narrow conventions of your mangled mind.

Me and Patti LaBelle got a new attitude.

I will not be typecast by the slant of my eyes, the color of my skin or country of origin.

I am a Woman of faith of dignity who demands and commands respect.

I refuse to suffer indignities of your racist sexist perversions.

I follow the laws of God as dictated by my belief system whatever it may be.

I am not an exotic playtoy or life size Barbie doll existing only to gratify, satisfy or fulfill your twisted sadistic carnal predilections.

I am not the one and today is not your day.

I will not be afraid and will not back down.

I am not a victim.

I am more than a survivor.

I am defiant.

You do not have license to ill.

My height, weight, shape do not delineate me as a loose woman or a hot number.

I am not your Ethiopian Chocolate Fantasy or submissive Asian delight found in the back covers of men’s magazines.

I am not your Indian Maiden with feathers in her hair or a sari wrapped around her waist.

If I’m a Lesbian nothing between your legs will make me straight and certainly does not impress me.

Whatever fever you got, be it Jungle Fever, Yellow Fever, Red Fever, Hot Spicy Latina Fever, I’m about to throw cold water all over it and knock you out cold. Get over yourself. You’re not all that and a bag of chips.

I choose who, when, where and if I will lay my body down.

I am the Goddess and only the worthy may gain access to the Temple. As Women we are called to maintain order in the Universe. Ladies ~ Realize your calling.

Asshole Repellent

Ladies sexual abuse, workplace bullying and sexual harassment is the Elephant in the Room that everybody sees but fails to acknowledge its presence. Instead we step lightly around him hoping he will go away of his accord. Do not remain silent. Speak up. Speak out.

    In spite of some terrible issues still facing us as a nation, and knowing bigotry, and unfair discriminations made because of bigotry still exist, we are a quantum leap ahead of many other places on earth where women are still hold status slightly above cattle. Some of the problem will diminish due to awareness. And some of it will not likely ever go away because of what some people deeply believe is true. But as I’ve said before, just because someone believes something does not make it true anymore than not believing it would make it untrue. Yes, many bigoted practices globally happen because of belief disorders, but others occur out of the kind of ignorance that can be turned around. The thing that holds it back is the strangle-hold dogma has on what people within some cultures are allowed to openly admit they are even thinking about, for fear of serious retribution, even death.

    1. Van, As always your comments are on point. This was written after the Trayvon Martin miscarriage of justice and in response to what many of my female co-workers and I encounter on the job. After one particularly nasty incident where I had to defend myself against a 6 foot tall 300 lb oaf I had the unwanted attention conversation with several Asian Women co-workers. Yes this country has progressed a long way but the Neanderthals have not and this makes it very difficult in the workplace for women. I can’t even begin to list some of the things I’ve had said to me by some male co-workers. Sexual discrimination and harassment is alive and well in the workplace, the church, and in our local neighborhoods.

  2. This reminds me of a lovely blog post I read earlier this week (which I can’t find to link to for you) about a writing guy on a bus (married with kid) who saw a Neanderthal try to hit on a girl who was obviously uninterested.

    The guy went and sat just as inappropriately close to the Neanderthal, said all the same lines in a flirty way, received the same negative response the Neanderthal was getting until the Neanderthal turned at shouted that he wasn’t gay.

    The guy then had some brilliant come-back that made the point about unwanted attentions so the Neanderthal leaned back and left the girl alone. The guy ended by saying that the girl mouthed ‘Thank you’ as she left, and that made nearly getting beaten by a Neanderthal worth it.

    He said it so much better than I just did! lol
