So last night I caught part of VH1 helps spread vanarial diseases between Chad Ocho Cinco and various unknown fame 🤬

And this chick kept talking about how independent she is and how that makes her a great catch. According to her

Having a degree
A job
No husband
No kids

Made her the 🤬

I have those things but I don't think that makes me the 🤬 , I think that makes me an adult who made certain choices, I'm the 🤬 because simply I am

And it reminded why sometimes self proclaimed independent women 🤬 me off

They want praise for doing normal and 🤬 , AND they completely 🤬 up what womens rights is supposed to be about.

Do you these independent women bother you too???

    Yes it is annoying as hell. how u excited about 🤬 ur supposed to be doing? I'm definitely all about being independent....but I don't feel the need to tell people that 🤬 or act like it's such a big feat. I'm not SUPPOSED to be living with my mama at 30. Why the hell would someone deserve praise for that?

    Yes its annoying you shouldn't get praised for doing normal 🤬 ...now if you owned your own business and were giving back to the community in a major way then I'll praise you...but until then total thumbs down. I also hate the praise fathers get for raising children...why should I praise when your doing something you should be doing anyway?

    oh and I love "I'm the 🤬 because simply I am" <<that will be my sig but in pink :)

    Eh, I don't pay Reality TV chicks any mind, so what they say or do is more of a reflection of entertainment, not reality. I let birds be birds.

    TV gives alot of people a false perception of what reality is. Even the people on TV don't know who they are. Reality TV isn't really real just a false notion of what people claim they are.

    Real independent women move in silence they don't need to advertise their accomplishments to other women/men they let credentials and achievements do the talking.

    I think a lot of times when there are so few people doing normal 🤬 it makes actually doing it seem like more of an accomplishment.

    I agree with this.

    The term doesn't bother me, because I feel like if it's you--it's you. You're happy because you didn't "🤬 up your life"? Scream it from the mountain tops. I'm happy for you too, lady.

    I don't know any women in my immediate circle who talk like this

    It's more of a given... we can all see what each other has or doesn't have

    Women that feel the need to brag about their lives are kinda pathetic to me.....

    Honestly.... it can be annoying...but it doesnt really bother me like that. And then again .... reality tv is always distorted and re-edited to paint a specific picture.
    You will have producers on set asking bait questions. Its all one big set-up to acquire ratings.
