When some men call me a Bitch... .
I'm pleased because it means
NO, I won't be your door mat
NO, I won't be the brunt of your bad jokes
NO, you don't get to cat call me on the street and get away with it ,
Casually pat me on the ass at a dinner party and smile apologetically,
Like there's anything casual about sexual harassment,
Like there's no helping your hands stay where they belong,
Not when the curve of my skirt shifts higher,
Not when my skin is a sin just for existing and...
Not when I'm "asking for it." .
When some men call me a Bitch... ..
I'm happy because I know
YES a "kitten" is still a cat and this one has claws.
YES I will stand up for myself, in person and in politics.
Yes I will speak out,
Yes I will speak up, and
Yes, I will stop you from taking home my drunk friend at bar close.
I will stop you from taking home a drunk stranger if she (or he) needs it. .
When some men call me a Bitch...
I don't argue .
When some men call me a Bitch
I smile and nod
I smile and nod and know
That deep down
They aren't really much Man at all. .
