I'm not one for conventional stereotypes. But when someone says "That's not lady-like." I start to take offense. See, for years women were shamed and had to be humble servants to men We were hanged for "witchcraft" or merely looking at our neighbors the wrong way. We were told we would never get to vote or be in a position of power. We are asked "Well, what were you wearing?" Like it's our fault, like the men couldn't control themselves So when you say to me that my dress should go past my knees that I shouldn't curse that my hair is too short, my waist is too big that I am "unladylike" what I hear is "go back to the servant woman who didn't speak, didn't vote, didn't do anything besides what she was told." And that to me is unladylike.
