Think about the first name you were ever called,
and then think how long it took until
you got called a pussy
or a slut,
or a bitch,
or a whore,
all of which are words that fall too close to ‘girl.’
Think about the first time you got called a ‘girl’
and they said it with a sneer.
Like it was a bad thing.
For a boy, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
For a girl, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
Remember, black widow spiders and female praying mantises eat their partners after intercourse.
Remember, it’s the lionesses who hunt.
They come back with bloody muzzles, dragging bloated carcasses as the alpha lion strides around with his mane puffing out.
Remember, it’s only the female mosquitoes who drink blood.
We’re the ones who do the necessary work, dirty our hands,
fuck or fight or both.
We’re often the smaller sex, which makes us a harder target
as we slink close and sink our teeth in.
Remember: we’re deadly.
You should be proud to be called a girl.
"I love that show. I think Carver was the very first lead character I voiced in an ongoing animated series. It was also just a great group of people: Doug Langdale - the guy who wrote it - he… he had a concept. He had an idea to sell to the network, but he also had his own concept. All the characters had types that you could put on paper, but that’s not the story he was telling. It was a reflection of his childhood, so he was writing people, not types. And it was a fantastic cast: Kath Soucie, Grey DeLisle and Jason Marsden…they are all not only incredibly talented, but so nice, it was just always such a joy. That was a fantastic show. Weekenders was so much fun.”

I’ve probably earned the right to screw up a few times. I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about.
