"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."
So I’m re watching episode 4 of RWBY and when Sun and Neptune get thrown off of the freeway I found myself thinking “Oh of course, Sun was getting dangerously close to being a competent male character on this show” and sort of internally rolling my eyes. But then I stopped myself and had an extremely rare moment of clarity. Is this how dames feel every time they watch like anything else? That must be kind of a drag.
