50 Things I have learned in 50 years – Day 6

Over the next 50 days, I will be going over the 50 things that I have learned to make my life awesome. I know people are always doing these but so few of them have a PhD and 25+ years of experience working with human beings on what they want and changing the things they don’t like. Here is my list which will culminate on my 50th birthday.

I know you’re thinking, ‘these seem awfully tame for CoupleDumb’. Which brings me to #6.

Ladies do not swear….we say fuck.

Look, I know it’s all cool and stuff to drop the f-bomb in an ironic way or the occasional slip. Society will say that a lady does not say this and we should curb the language in front of kids. Society also says that bad language is a sign of lack of couth or limited vocabulary. The reality is that dropping the f-word feels wonderful. If anything, I think the societal limitation on language is just another way the man tries to keep us down.

So, certain men do not find it attractive when a woman uses colorful language. I have learned that those types of men are not my type. Men who do not like uppity women tend to be assholes anyway so why bother? Say ‘fuck’! Say ‘fuck off’ often! Let it go and fuck it all!

It seems the older you get, the fewer fucks you have to give and holding your tongue in case someone is offended is one fuck that is just not worth spending when there is limited fucks you have left. I reserve my fucks for things like world hunger and being a global citizen who cares for my fellow man.

I am a woman who says ‘fuck’ a lot. If feels great! You should try it …..or not. I don’t really give a fuck.

Come back for the next 44 days and see what else I have learned.
