Hear, hear.

I have no idea who wrote this; it was sent to me by my friend Tabitha. I like the attitude of this piece, so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

Girls vs. Grown Women

Girls leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans.
Grown women make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits in.

Girls want to control the man in their life.
Grown women know that if he's truly hers, he doesn't need controlling.

Girls check you for not calling them.
Grown women are too busy to realize you hadn't.

Girls try to put a man 'on lock' by using sex.
Grown women know that it's the sex of the mental kind that makes a man want to 'lock' you down.

Girls fake-moan, lay there and take the stabbing.
Grown women say, "Just stop", get up, get dressed and walk it out.

Girls are afraid to be alone.
Grown women revel in it – using it as a time for personal growth.

Girls ignore the good guys.
Grown women ignore the bad guys.

Girls make you come.
Grown women make you come home.

Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.

Girls try to monopolize all their man's time (i.e, don't want him hanging with his friends).
Grown women realize that a little bit of space makes the 'together time' even more special – and goes to kick it with her own friends!

Girls think a guy crying is weak.
Grown women offer their shoulder and a tissue.

Girls want to be spoiled and 'tell' their man so.
Grown women 'show' him and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate without fear of losing his 'manhood'.

Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
Grown women know that that was just one man.

Girls fall in love, chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all 'signs'.
Grown women know that sometimes the one you love, don't always love you back – and move on, without bitterness.

Girls will read this and get an attitude.
Grown women will read this and pass it on to other Grown women!

This gave me a few chuckles. There should be a guy version too.

Hey, Linnaeus, are you volunteering?? I agree, I'd love to see a guy's version.

Hmmm...I wouldn't say I'm volunteering, as I don't think I could write something comparably pithy. I'm sure there's someone out there with the talent to do so, though!

"Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man."

People actually believe this tripe?
This trend is associated insistently with mental masturbation rather than any sort of development as an objective, rational, and progressive being.

I'm a gay nineteen-year-old guy reading this list, and I...am not a girl, but a lot of it still applies (I'm just gonna fill in "girl/grown woman" with "boy/grown man".

I would love to be the grown man, and I know what I want to be, but sometimes my actions are more in line with the "boy". Le Sigh. I must work harder to be in line with Grown Man-hood!
