I spend a lot of time on Twitter simultaneously being disgusted and awestruck at what some “women” will say to get noticed. It obviously works as these accounts have thousands of followers and dedicated fans who encourage the behavior by retweeting their nastiest stuff.
Do not get me wrong I have a horrible potty mouth, I say things that make my friends cringe and cover their eyes, but I do this with friends or people I know and it is mostly done in jest. I would never speak like that in front of strangers, even under the guise of anonymity.
I’m more the girl who’d rather get dirty. I don’t spend an amazing amount of time on my hair and make up, even when going out. I wear what is comfortable and like to think I have my own style, and that works for me. I like jumping in lakes or flying down a mud slide. I have always said that the man who falls in love with me will initially be surprised as it will probably happen when I’m covered in grass.
That is not to say I can’t clean up, I’ve held some important positions in my career and I can don black tie gear with the best of them. I can be professional, influential and concise but it is my preference to be comfortable. And I am not comfortable trying to be popular by shaming myself. I tell horrible jokes, but at least I’d let my nephews read what I write and that means more than all the followers in the world.
