"Lady Like"

"Don't do that, that's unladylike" is what I was told by the women in my life growing up. But that leads to me question, what the hell is ladylike?

Is it crossing my legs & reapplying lipstick after it's smudged?

Is it keeping my mouth shut &not speaking my mind?

Is it settling for less pay or to only have sex missionary?

Is it being told you pursue your dream because you were born to be domestic?

Is it being flawless and perfect?

If these are the things that make me "lady like" you can keep it.

I'm happy being me.
