LOVE. THIS. POST. Gotta stuck up for yourself or no one will!

There's a difference between a "good girl" and a "demure girl."

Too often, I think society thinks that a woman is best seen & not heard . . . that they should just do whatever the heck is decided for them & smile about it. And that's bullshit.

I'm glad you stood up for yourself and that it's going to be of great benefit for you . . . but I don't know that I'd call you any of a "good girl" because of it.

As for Diana . . . that's a travesty and a half - a case of emotionless doctors who just don't know how to think or act or behave. I'm glad Diana stood up - and I'm glad the social media wave followed.

Indeed! What a gift it is that so many can stand together and support each other. I'm living vicariously through Diana and am praying and pulling for her. I'm glad she has friends like you, Kit!

And well done! Did your co-worker forget what decade he was working in? How dare he!

And I thought Bad Girls were just good in the bedroom!

Good for both of you!!

This semi-good girl has her own story of empowerment! The women in my family have a LONG history of being strong... except when it comes to the men in our lives. So much so that I didn't date AT ALL in my 20s because I was scared silly that I would make the same mistakes.

When I turned 30 last year, i realized how much time I'd lost not looking for someone to share my life with, and I started dating.

And TODAY I realized that I am not my mother and I am not my sister. I broke up with a perfectly good boyfriend because he was not what I was looking for. And quite frankly, the only thing he'd been lately was a good lay - we'd stopped talking for reasons that neither of us seem to be able to explain.

After I finally bit the bullet and ditched the boyfriend, I immediately accessed Amazon through your website and ordered myself a Lelo Ina vibrator that I'd been eyeing for months. I can provide my OWN pleasure AND - more importantly - my own happiness.

I am happy, I am NOT my mother, and I have control over my life.

And the sooner we stop referring to ourselves as "girls" maybe we'll learn sooner. And how many of us still are referred to as "the girls" by the men in the workplace? Don't know about you, but I haven't been a "girl" since grade school. So yes, I was once a "good girl" too, but now I'm a brassy, classy woman at work and a lady everywhere else.

Yup, good girls do finish last, but professional confident women rise to the top!

Good girl! This made my morning. Nice reminder not to settle for less than you deserve...
