Embrace The “Pussy” Within You

By Ruby Cairns


*WARNING* You will never use the word ‘pussy’ in a derogatory context after reading this article!

For some unusually messed up reason, society has connected two dots that honestly could not be further apart. Dot one, owning a vagina. And dot two, being considered weak or scared. It’s just another time that society felt the need to shame a woman for her reproductive parts, and it is just not okay! So what the hell does it actually mean? And why is being called a ‘pussy’ considered an insult?

Well, after some somewhat charming research *insert sarcastic voice here* this is what I found out:

- Being a man comes with the expectation of being tough, strong, powerful blah blah blah... While naturally, women are considered opposite adjectives. Weaker, fragile, you get the idea.

- In ancient times (key word “ancient”) men were considered ‘ideal’ while women were always rated second best, meaning that to be a man was seen as way better!

Throughout my research, I expected at least some serious rebuttal, but every point was so stupidly outdated and illogical that it only made my work easier. So I’ll ask you once again... Why is being a pussy a bad thing? Seriously though, just think about it logically.

If we compare the pair quite literally, you’ll see what I mean. This self-cleaning, expandable machine literally has the ability to push out another human, and in a sense, create one! While men are told to “grow a pair” of some of the most sensitive body parts they own in order to be tough... logic I know! I can’t speak for everyone, but if there was a battle between vaginas and testicles... I know where I would be placing my bet!

How can something that allows us to push out another human still be the mascot for weakness and fragility?

So girls, stand with me and say something along the lines of,  “I’m proud of my pussy” for being one of my toughest companions and a truly extraordinary body part. 

In a positive sense (for once) I am actually telling you to “be a pussy”! Be something that is so tough, so resilient and just an around superstar. Because the time to embrace the absolutely amazing thing between our legs is extremely overdue.
