This Is What Makes Us Girls

Hello everyone, glittereyes360 is back, I hope you have all missed me cause I've missed you all, my little darlings!
So, I'm kicking off this ranting session that I find CLIC very useful for.
Let's talk about that big and very crucuial word... SEXISM!
Sexism, unfortunatly is everywhere we turn in life. Men's behaviour towards women and women's behaviour towards men. In recent years many women have quit their jobs because their male bosses have passed an inappropriate comment over their female staff.
I was reading a book titled How To Be A Woman and the writer said that a woman on Twitter was made redundant by her male boss but the boss said, "You have lovely legs, you'll be fine". Implying, because a woman is attractive, she will get far in life. The only company that is useful for that is the porno industry and let's be honest, that's just a tricky buisness.
We have all gone through this in our lives. If a male saying to us jokingly, "go and make my tea, hoe", there's a way to deal with that. Smile gracefully and enter the kitchen whilst clutching a glass of water. Throw it over him and say politely, "make your own tea, man hoe".
Or the classic line, "go back to the kitchen", the most original a male can throw at you when you've stumped him because you know your geography and he clearly doesn't as he got you lost in the first place. (Sometimes, fellas, ask for directions!)
We live in a society now where women are striving for equal measures within the work world and the outside social scale. So far, our attempts have been successful but the sexism still remains in the air.
If a girl dates a large scale of boys, she is called a lot of not very nice names. Even women call these girls the same name. But if a boy does the very same, do you know what happens? It's a high five from his two head-shaven friends, Gary and Dave.
If a girl wears a suit she is considered a lesbian, if a man wears a suit he is considered slick and sharp. (Marlene Dietrich was slick and sharp, and I'm talking a German female here!) If a man wears a dress for fancy dress parties, Gary and Dave are laughing and still handing out high fives.
If a lady wears a dress to a party, do you know how many females are judging that woman? You can hear the sly whispers like "how fat do her thighs look? OMG total bingo wings!" But after ten pints, everyone turns into your best friend, so it's kind of okay.
Not only that, if a woman downs a pint of John Smiths in a minute, she is considered unattractive, but if a man does it, do Gary and Dave really look hotter when they belch and fart? This is the problem: whatever a man does and a woman tries to do, she can't really succeed because she gets alot of jip, but if a man tries to do what a woman does, he is the new George Michael, apparently.
So, you know what I say ladies, forget sexism. Sexism is everywhere but soon it shall go away, when the Devil makes his appearance in Sex And The City, but then again, that's never going to happen, sorry ladies.
But, I still do suggest the glass of water to a man's face, because we may be a lot of things, but we ain't NO ONE'S HOE! Word out, CLICettes! xxx
