Reclaiming a Derogatory Term
“Stop being a pussy!”
Where do I begin?
We say this when someone is acting timid or meek
but pussies are anything at all but weak.
They bleed, expand for sex, self-clean.
They are your mother, your daughter,
your girlfriend, your queen.
Vaginas are the antithesis of feeble.
And let’s not forget they push out whole people.
So don’t call someone a pussy unless …
is what you mean to say.
And aren’t those the words we should be using
to talk to each other anyway? 🔷
