Why I Hate the “P” Word

7 Jun

There are lots of ‘p’ words, and it just happens that most of the words I dislike begin with the letter ‘p’, but lets focus on just one right now: pussy.

First of all, I sound absolutely ridiculous saying it. Unless I get into character like I do when I say pretty much anything jokingly – fa real!?, Oh, hell nah!, I’s gon whoop some ass! – it just sounds dumb.

That aside, I want everyone to take a second to think about what calling someone a “pussy” is implying.

If you are a women, you are basically telling someone they are acting the equivalent of…well…a woman.

With all this equal rights for the sexes talk, shouldn’t we stop using words that are derogatory to women, especially if we are women? It’s even worse when feminists start throwing this word around. It completely baffles me.

If you are a man, you are basically telling someone they are acting the equivalent of…well…a woman.

This is demeaning to women.

I suppose you could argue with me about it’s connotation in reference to the “scaredy-cat” but really, I haven’t heard anyone but awkwardly-aged children use the ‘p’ word in relationship to cats.

And anyway…what exactly does a “pussy” act like? Moist? Conforming? Hairy? To be completely honest, I’ve always just thought of them as stationary, inanimate objects that don’t act like anything. Maybe I’m in the minority here.

What do you think of the word ‘pussy’? What other ‘p’ words would you venture to guess that I don’t like? What are some of your least favorite words?
