'Do You Have A Daughter?' And 13 Other Things I Want To Say When A Guy Thinks Catcalling Is OK

'Do You Have A Daughter?' And 13 Other Things I Want To Say When A Guy Thinks Catcalling Is OK

I don't blame your mother, I blame you.


Listen, catcalling is NEVER OK... ever. It doesn't matter how someone looks, they're not "asking for it." Please, just keep your inappropriate, degrading and disgusting comments to yourself... if you must have them at all.

1. "Would your mother like hearing you talk like that?"

I really don't think your mother wants to hear you cat-calling a girl. Any lessons she taught you about civility would be lost.

2. "And that's why you don't have a girlfriend."

This is probably a pretty safe assumption about any guy acting like this.

3. "I feel bad for whoever marries you."

Any guy who objectifies women like that will only continue to do so.

4. "You're exactly the reason why girls blame themselves when things happen."

Guys like you are why girls think they are always the problem, why they "deserved" what happened to them. Newsflash: the only thing that is deserved in this situation is some soap in your mouth to clean it.

5. "Be gone witch, you have no powers here."

Alright, this one may be channeling my inner "Dance Moms" fan, but still, seriously, boy bye!

6. "Don't let the door hit you on the way out."

Because that's the only direction you're going.

7. "You're the reason why 'Law & Order: SVU' is going into its 20th season."

They base that show on REAL CASES, people! REAL CASES!

8. Like the headline says, "Do you have a daughter?"

You know that if a guy talked to your daughter or future daughter the way you just talked to me, you'd go after him if you ever met him.

9. "What if I did that to you when you walked down the street?"

Funny how it feels when the tables are turned, huh?

10. "Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?"

I certainly hope not...

11. Or, even better "... your grandma?"

Again, I really hope it's a no on this one.

12. "And how many times have you actually gotten a girl speaking that way?"

Ah, that's right... zero, none, zlich... you get the point.

13. "Thanks for the compliment! Unfortunately, I only date guys with class."

Keep trying... or don't.

The 7 Traits That Define An Alpha Female

Throw her to the wolves and she'll return with the pack.

Women are weak.

Women are fragile.

Women are submissive.

Women are second.

Women are stereotyped.

We are frustratingly put second because that is just how it has always been. With this notion, the alpha-woman stands out. She is unconventional and to many men, this scares them away. Her confidence oozes her alpha demeanor and instills levels of immense intimidation in the mindsets of many. With this unconventional mindset, alpha women are misunderstood in not only relationships, but in daily life. By getting to know an alpha female's characteristics you will better be able to understand why dating an alpha-female may be the way to go.

1. She won't give up easily.

She is resilient. When an alpha female has a goal, it becomes a major focus that encompasses her mind. She sees herself as an investment. In this regard, she will tirelessly work to upkeep her social, physical, and emotional state of mind. She won't play victim to life and become thrashed by harsh-comings, but rather will take them head on.

2. She isn't afraid to make the first move.

This is where a lot of alpha and beta females may differ. Making the first move toward a guy at a bar is her specialty. Why should a boy be the one to always make the first move? So thankfully for you boys, alpha females can take that burden off you. This bold approach exemplifies her spontaneous, self-assured, confident, and outgoing nature. She knows what she wants and goes for it without hesitation.

3. She is extremely loyal.

She is loyal and respectful to the ones she loves. Once she has someone or something int heir life, they work hard to keep it around. She says what she wants and wants what she says. Letting people or things slip through her fingers is not a common occurrence. With an alpha female knowing what she wants, she won't jeopardize relationships or friendships over petty things. Not feeling the need to use dishonest tactics, she lives her life with integrity.

4. She lives with purpose.

She has direction in her life. While she knows how to relax and be adventurous, she does not just wander as a lost puppy in her life. Working toward goals of physical fitness, doing well in school, or attaining a good career are examples of purpose she works toward. She stays aware of her goals and keeps them in the center of her thoughts. Dating an alpha female, you can be ensured she will get what she will get things done and will work hard to ensure happiness in the relationship.

5. She isn't afraid to be or do things by herself.

The alpha female isn't afraid of independence, and in fact, often times will welcome it. Strong leadership skills are almost always a common trait. This often times can lead to a sense of intimidation from others as they feel threatened by her self-confidence. While company is a positive, it is not always necessary. In relationships, this has potential to be either a positive or negative. Allowing an alpha female to have her own times and space, or at least feel as if she is in control sometimes, is essential to the relationships well-being.

6. She knows how to love.

Strong-hearted and strong-willed describe her well. She won't experience damsel in distress moments and need to be saved by a boy, so you don't need to worry about her not being able to hold her own. When she loves, she loves hard in every way, shape, and form. She will challenge you to be the best you can be and provide support along the way, to any absurd idea you may have. She'll strive to make your duo the best team around. She doesn't live a mediocre life and won't let your relationship be that way either. She isn't afraid of her sexuality, either. If you have captured her heart, you can imagine she will love you well.

7. She is ambitious.

She dares to go there. As Kendrick would say, she has "hustle though, ambition, flow, inside her DNA." She believes she is responsible for her own life and if she has somewhere she wants or needs to be, she is the only means of which she will get there. Her personality thrives off taking responsibility for herself and for others. She lives void of the idea of restricting limitations.

Girl Power is the best power, And 'Queen V' Is Proof

Why are our feminine healthcare routines so taboo?


Growing up, I was taught to keep feminine products and everything related to them a secret. Pads, tampons, and pretty much anything else in that category. Why are we constantly hiding things that are known to be apart of who we are as women?

We talk about things related to our health as though they are things we should be ashamed of and embarrassed about, rather than talking about them in ways that are beneficial to us. For example, yeast infections, UTIs, and infections such as those are other things many seem to try to hide and feel embarrassment about rather than seek help.

Because so many women struggle with issues related to these and more but keep quiet about them, we struggle to find something that works and something that we know we can count on to not make us feel worse. There may be a new solution to the embarrassment!

Queen V is an up-and-coming brand that is Millennial-based and it has a wide variety of products. They're so great because they have things ranging from odor control sprays to probiotics for keeping away infections to bath bombs literally created for the sole purpose of alleviating unbearable cramps. Why are they not getting more attention?

The founder, Lauren Steinberg, is a young grad from the University of Southern California who struggled with finding feminine products that worked for her. She decided to stop the cycle of women who struggle with finding medications that aren't harmful, so she created Queen V.

Queen V is based on girl power. Girl power is one of the most essential topics of today. We, as women, need to come together and continue to build each other up and motivate one another. It's a brand almost completely built off of empowerment, which should draw everyone in right away.

It's time to retire the old products that do nothing but hurt our bodies, or just flat out do not work or do anything for us. Queen V recognizes this. Everything that hasn't worked before has been removed from their products. Newer ingredients are being put into newer products and are creating overall better products with better outcomes. (It doesn't hurt that the packaging is super cute and the product names are trendy too!)

Queen V is what we need in our lives as women. Everyone needs to look into their site. Not only do they stress girl power and feminism, but they open the honest conversation about women's health and wellness, which is a topic typically avoided.
