This is For the Women Who Don’t Give a F*ck. {Adult}

for the women.

Warning: F-Bombs ahead!

This is for the women who don’t give a fuck.

The women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea.

The women who drink too much whisky, stay up too late and have sex like they mean it.

The women who know they aren’t sluts because they enjoy sex, but human beings with a healthy sexual appetite.

The women who will ask you for what they need in bed.

This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls.

The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts.

The ones who wear “night make up” in the morning or don’t own mascara.

The women who know their worth, who plant their feet and roar in their brilliance.

The women who aren’t afraid to tell a man to get the fuck out of her heart if he doesn’t honour her heart.

This is for the women who rock combat boots with frilly skirts.

The women who swear like truck drivers.

The women who hold the people who harass or wrong them with fierce accountability.

The women who flip gender norms and false limitations the bird and live to run successful companies giving “the man” a run for his name.

The ones who don’t find their success a compliment just because they have a vagina.

Women like Gloria Steinem who, when she was told, “We want a writer, not a woman. Go home,” kept writing anyway.

This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it.

For the women who open doors for men and are confident enough to have doors opened for them.

Who use “no” to be in service for themselves.

Who don’t give a damn about pleasing the world, and do sweetly as they wish.

For the superheroes—the single moms who work three jobs to make it. I salute your resilient, cape-flapping, ambitious selves.

This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence.

The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times.

The women who know how to be busy and know how to plant their feet in the earth and get grounded.

These are the women I want around me.

Here’s something worth giving a f**k about with a beautiful couple:

This is my kind of woman: 

 

Quit Choosing Busy & Start Choosing what we Love.

This One’s for My Skinny Sisters.

Where Did the Ya-Ya Sisterhood Go?

 

Love elephant and want to go steady?

A man’s man, a real man, will love, respect and not be threatned by a strong woman and an equal partner in his life. A strong, uninhibited, capable and self confident but loving woman should be considered an asset, not a threat!. If they can compliment each other’s strengths and not their weaknesses, they can live, love and conquer anything together as a true Alpha Couple!

The women who don’t care that they are 30+ years young and haven’t gotten married/had children yet.
The women who are not ashamed of their body hair.
The women who travel alone, wander alone and take major and minor decisions without asking for your opinion/approval.
The women who don’t see gender, who see hearts through eyes.
The women who live to live.

I love this! So wish the comments were saved for thoughts- not rewriting your amazing article. It took me 30 years to begin to come into my own and it was extremely full of “shoulds” and “have-to’s”. Thank you for being honest and true to yourself. I, for one, appreciate it.
