Bitch Ascending


I still remember the visceral pleasure it gave me when I first heard Meredith Brooks:


“I’m a Bitch, I’m a lover, I’m a child, I’m a mother, I’m a sinner, I’m a saint. I do not feel ashamed. I’m your help, I’m your tease, I’m nothing in between, you know you wouldn’t want it any other way...”


“So take me as I am,
This may mean you’ll have to be a stronger man,”

And this about sums up the consistent re-emerging of the feminine perspective in modern society.

If you're not a "Lover," you're a bitch.

Turtling like a ground-hog named Bill Murray, how many #metoo moments do we need in Canada?


Online women and men alike can recognize the advances and the advantages to equality and yet in the real world, nothing is changing. A society, it's government, to be truly democratic or representative in any fashion, must behave in a way congruous with the people that live in it. I mean, I'm Acadienne so I'm not opposed to a little Revolution here and there.


As a single working mother, I wasn’t raising my daughter, I was outsourcing her. Between school, daycare, or afterschool care, I barely knew my kid before I got injured. Since I got injured it has been difficult to balance all the things I'm responsible for and I was failing my kid. And I refuse to do that anymore. 


Being a powerful feminist means not being afraid to hold ground, even if I can never expect to afford owning my own. Even if student debt is piled onto me, I want my daughter to know that digits on a page cannot define you, nor can anyone outside your own mind. 


There are three games in a woman’s life if you go along with colonial rules:
  1.  the race of youth immortalized in "The Virgin Mary"
  2. The distraction of family, depicted by "Mary the Mother of Christ," and then
  3. The slow disintegration into elder female or sub-monarch, as per Mary at the foot of the cross of Christ at his crucifixion.


But there are so many beautiful alternatives, including female canine deities anyone can feel inspired by... Here's a few to entertain...


So what’s the problem?


Is the backlog of reaction from Canadians real due to public dismay or do you think it is deliberately over-funded to stall human rights?


It’s the tale older than time: people benefit from your prejudice.


You can call yourself a "men's rights activist" but you're not and you're not fooling Canadians. You’re not a traditionalist or “Conservative,” you’re a sexist piece of trash everyone hates listening to at social gatherings. Could you learn to expand past your own ignorances please?


Also, the triple goddess is a real concept borrowed from Indigenous European Beliefs from Pre-Christian times. If you're going to be sexist, could you at least not appropriate that shit and try to mansplain it back to me?
