Women Empowerment is a Load of Crap – Time to Bring Sexy Back

Women Empowerment is being sexy. However, the whole movement has somehow turned into women feeling the need to sex all the way down. And those who do sex it up get slammed from all sides. Ladies you do not have to wear shapeless black pants and ugly shoes to get that corner office. Women have fought for decades to prove that we are just as smart as the guys and should be paid and promoted the same. BUT. Along the way too many women seem to have forgotten that our number one power really does lie in sex, and what’s more empowering than owning that? Yeah I said it. Women’s number one power regarding men is the sexual spell that we can cast over a man to get whatever we want. Now now, before you slam down the computer in a rage, then pick it up again to send me a nasty email on how I am setting womankind back one hundred years, sit down sister, and read on.

Have you ever heard or said any of the following?

  1. It’s a man’s world
  2. Men only think with their penises
  3. In a male-dominated industry I feel invisible

If you answered “yes” to at least one of the above, then you really want to keep on reading. Let me break it down: It is a man’s world, because so far they get paid more and don’t have to march, protest, or plead their case as to why they should get equal pay for equal work. They are usually the bosses, and get promoted just for showing up, whereas we are still on the grind to prove to the world that we are superior. But for now we’ll settle for equality.

On to the next one. Fact: Many a man has risked his happy home consisting of a good wife who loves him, f**ks him, takes care of his kids and even brings home some of the bacon which she turns around and cooks, just so he could screw some cheap basic bitch in the streets. Then another, then another. Ask Beyoncé, she said it all in Lemonade. “What a wicked way to treat the girl that loves you”.  This is penis-thinking my dears. Cheap ass in the streets can make a man forsake his castle. So what do you think top shelf ass can do? When you can wield your top shelf ass into a major promotion and big bucks, now that’s empowerment!

In a male-dominated world, baby girl, you are invisible. But don’t take my word for it. Try saying something in a room full of men at work. Only the new-age ones, or those who are really trying hard or want to sex you, will pay you any attention. Men do not hear women. Do you know how many times I’ve given my husband great advice and he’s ignored it? Then a few weeks later he’ll come to me all excited saying “Bob says (insert here exactly what I freaking told him to do on that topic)”. Yep. He only hears it when Bob or some other dude says it. And it’s not just my guy, this is a widespread situation. Ask Wanda Sykes.

Now that we’ve proven men have the upper hand despite penis brain and an inclination to ignoring the female voice, it’s time for the solution. Bring sexy back!

Not cheap basic chick sexy, but top shelf premium sexy. Remember Gigi’s article Smart Girls are the Best in Bed? She explains that sexy starts in the brain. It’s not about showing your ass and actually giving sexual pleasures, but instead, it’s about the seduction. Nothing seduces like a smart girl who knows what she’s talking about and doing at work. But let’s take it a step further. You gotta look good! Yeah I said it! There is nothing wrong with wearing a suit which shows your curves. And some hot shoes to go with it!

Seduce the men at work. Use your voice, your charm, your brain, and your long sexy legs in that mini skirt suit and wicked heels. Note: You’ve got to be able to walk easily in them, or you’ll look stupid. Watch them melt. Watch them fawn. Watch you get promoted. And promoted. And promoted. Does anyone have a problem with that? I didn’t think so.
