The Princess vs. The AngelPosted: December 8, 2013
i was at my local tonight when i overheard a dad refer to his young daughter as “his little princess”.
there’s an on-going trend of referring to women (especially little girls) as “princess”. personally it makes me shudder when i hear a little girl being called a princess. when a girl hears this often at such a young age fosters a huge sense of entitlement.
a princess is something to be objectified, to be served, something beyond you. you are beneath a princess. if i refer to a woman as princess it’s to make fun of a woman being finicky. when i posted about my ex not being comfortable peeing in the bathroom because i didn’t heat that part of the house, thus my electric bill going up as “princess couldn’t piss in the cold”, it was to elicit a response from her. and it did in fact make her feel a pang of guilt.
now, when referring to a woman i adore, i prefer to call her “angel”. angel’s are divine, worthy of respect, something of beauty. we all know my love of the spanish speaking ladies. i usually refer to them as “angelita mia” (my little angel) and they eat that shit up. most of the time when speaking to a woman (be it family or gf) i’ll call her angel.
just consider the attitude of a princess versus that of an angel. princess’ EXPECT shit to be given to them. served to them. whereas an angel expects and wants nothing. they appreciate what you do for you and you in general. honestly, which of the 2 would you rather have in your life?
don’t believe me, try it. call a woman you know princess and tell me you don’t feel like a complete douche. then call a woman an angel and tell me it doesn’t practically roll off your tongue. i’m a firm believe in taking the pepsi challenge with these things.
i did have a nice time shooting the bow today. haven’t shot in a minute, and it showed from my patterns. i need to start going about once a week again. i didn’t have anyone to film it, so i’ll put up my first ever youtube upload.
