I am a Lady

Yes, BOY, not man, not gentle sir,
BOY, you’ve got a few things to learn.
There is a difference between females, girls, and ladies.
I am a lady.
I was raised by a lady
Who was raised by a lady
Who was raised by a long line of other ladies.
You say “girlssssss do this.
You are a girrlllllllllll so you must be this way.”
Excuse me?
I am a lady!
I may not always cross my legs,
But I sure as hell tuck my ankles.
I may burp at times
But never in front of strangers.
I may prefer to dress in jeans and t-shirts.
But I know how to look like a lady and not some hooker.
It is blatant to me
That a BOY like you
Doesn’t understand the idea of a lady.
So let me lay it out for you.
A lady does not make judgments about people because of “scientific studies”.
A lady graciously accepts when she is in the wrong.
But does not put out her righteous anger when she is so clearly in the right.
A lady respects all human beings even those who cannot understand what she is.
A lady is good, kind, honest, fiery, unexpected, and imperfect.
So BOY, I am not saying that I’m perfect
I’m saying I’m a lady and you better recognize!
