Thursday 13

Words that demean women that we should all stop using:

1. Slut, slutty -  term for a woman or girl who is thought to have loose sexual morals. It is generally used as an insult or sexual slur.

2. Bitch, bitchy - slang pejorative for a woman considered belligerent, unreasonable, malicious, controlling, intrusive, or aggressive.

3. Chick - a slang word implying a young woman is not capable of caring for herself or is an infant or infantile.

4. Airhead - a mindless or stupid woman (how often do you see this used to describe men?)

5. Ditsy - silly or scatterbrained (again, how often do you see this used to describe a man?)

6. Frigid - unable or unwilling to be sexually aroused and responsive or showing no friendliness or enthusiasm; stiff or formal in behavior or style

7. Emotional - easily upset or excited

8. Hysterical - uncontrolled, extreme emotion

9. Frumpy - dowdy and old-fashioned (dowdy should probably be added to this list)

10. High Maintenance - overly needy or prone to drama

11. Bridezilla - A woman planning her wedding who exercises a high degree of control over all or many minor details of the ceremony and reception. (What do you call the groom who does that?)

12. Hormonal - off kilter, out of control

13. "Working" - as in "working" woman, "working" mom. You don't hear anybody say "working" man or "working" dad, now do you?

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here if you want to read other Thursday Thirteens and/or play along. I've been playing for a while and this is my 457th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.

  1. Drama Queen is another putdown. Implies you are (once again) overreacting to EVERYthing...
    my all time favorite phrase (not) is "the wife". Not her name, not 'my wife' but "the wife..." let's depersonalize her just that much more. Think Archie Bunker, lol.

  2. Then there is "old hag" and "witch." They call girls "birds" in England, or used to.
