I am petite, thin, 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.
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!
