Yep. I’m a bad ass bitch and I’ve never been afraid to claim that. Honestly, I can’t stand the whole swear words are bad words mentality.

I find words like hate, ugly, stupid, useless, and worthless to be much worse, because most 'swear’ words are used as punctuation. Whereas the words I listed are almost always used with intent to harm.

Unfortunately bitch fits here, too, but only as a lazy replacement for something that requires forethought.

And if we stop viewing the term as a negative one, we take away its power.

Hard to take the power out of worthless.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
