Girls Vs. Women - Poem by Christina E. Brown

Girls are insecure; Women are confident.
Girls dress trashy; Women dress classy.
Girls are students; Women are teachers.
Girls are listeners; Women are preachers.
Girls makes babies; Women raise babies.
Girls have sex; Women make love.
Girls are weak; Women are strong.
Girls fight; Women walk away.
Girls argue; Women speak.
Girls give in; Women compromise.
Girls envy. Women appreciate.
Girls give up. Women strive.
Girls look. Women see.
Girls take. Women give.
Girls follow; Women influence.

    Interesting poem. Some of those comparisons make you think. It seems like most of the females I know from school/work, etc usually refer to themselves and other females as girls, chicks, gals or ladies, but rarely women. Even the ones in their 30's and 40's. It seems as if they prefer being called girls rather than women for whatever reason. I guess it's a result of our patriarchal society. I say that any woman who gets insulted when a man calls them a girl fires back by calling them a boy. Maybe that would help. (Report) Reply
