The return of the self censor.
I got a little frustrated with something I was working on the other day and this gem slipped out of my mouth:
Ding Dong Damn It.
My dad happened to overhear me yell this and felt it necessary to inform me that it was a “Girl Curse”.
And I thought to myself…why?
Because it sounded cute? Because no man would be caught dead saying “ding dong”? Because I, a girl, said it?
If I’d said my usual curse would that have been a boy curse? (for those wondering my usual curse is Mother F***er God Damn It!!)
Look, I’m all for equality. Which means I’ll curse like a boy whenever I want. But I can’t control my brain when it decides, oh no this is the time to censor ourselves. I DIDN’T EVEN REALLY CENSOR MYSELF! I STILL SAID DAMN, DAMMIT!!
Anybut, just thought I’d share this.
Cause the other post I started writing (and left as a draft) was too much of a downer. Not that you’ll ever see it/I haven’t decided if I’ll ever post it.
