I am not cute damn it.

I am petite, thin, ย and “cute as a button” giving me quite the innocent look.

This pisses me off. And has since I was a kid.

I AM NOT CUTE! DAMNIT! I am edgy and dangerous.

I promise






damn, no I’m not.

This would not be a problem, except people laugh at me. All the time. Literally.

Why blog about this today? If this is a life long problem. I walk into work and go to my department head to let them know I got a new tattoo and it is visible. I am allowed to show my tattoos as long as they are tasteful. What was her response and the response of a co worker. Laughter. For five minutes. Followed by you are just so funny. Why? Because I just don’t look like a girl that would get tattoos, so me enjoying getting tattoos is just ridiculous.


This post is for all of us out there that are tired of being considered completely ridiculous by simply being ourselves.

No matter how many times they laugh, write you off, or dismiss you, stand tall! Be proud!

  1. I get the same response when I get really worked up and angry about something. People start snickering and I’m like WHAT? and they just say that I’m charming when I get upset. It’s really irritating and exasperating. I think that’s one of the reasons why I like blogging; no one here will ever call me “adorable” for showing emotion other than pleasantries.

  2. I’m on the smaller side and get mistaken for younger than my age regularly, and people don’t take me seriously and like to patronize me. I can sadly relate.

    Eff them for laughing at you! They sound like they suck.

  3. I sort of have this problem not because I’m cute really, but because I’m usually so nice. I have an opinion on just about everything, but anytime I share it I get laughed at because…I’ve never understood why. Either that or they’re shocked, like the girl who hardly ever says a word has an opinion? Shocking! In real life I’m still nice, so when people read an opinion that I just happened to write down somewhere then they’re like ‘gosh I thought you were better than this’ or ‘you’re so judgmental’. I hope this makes sense. Anyways, I feel relieved that some one just happens to have a somewhat similar problem. Soooo…thanks.

  4. Excuse me being advisory fior a minute I cannot simply cannot resist this urge…Firstly the people who react like this as fuckwits! Secondly wait another twenty years till everyone who looks older than you are deeeeply jealous! Thirdly – the little ones are the ones to watch – quick as quicksilver – menatllly and physically! Fourthly like all your stuff I find it really moving, Never Contrary. its moving because it is quite simply absolutely authentic – Fithly maybe become so good at a martial art that the next time someone laughs get their head on the floor and tell them to learn some manners!

  5. I’m reblogging this tomorrow.

    I’m not a tiny person…being 6’1″ and 220 lbs…however, I’m often seen as a ‘nice guy’. When I get pissed off, people think I’m being funny. I can relate.

    Loved the post….and again…just a head’s up…I’m stealing it… Haha!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. I know just how you feel… I’m fourteen and I look really young for my age.. Like really, I look like twelve and I’m always called adorable, and it really gets to me. Sometimes I feel so small and inferior to everyone else.. Like I’m nothing.. It’s good to see that somebody else is going through the same thing as me ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You write very well for 14. It may be hard, but do your best not to worry about what others say or think. The older you get the more jealous they will be that you still look young and they do not. It gets better.
