‘Boys tryna touch my junk…’ Kesha
When I heard this line in the popular song “Tik Tok,” my mouth dropped to the South pole. Junk? This is the new way women refer to their sexual organs and, or feminine parts? Whatever happened us celebrating them like Maya Angelou-who refers to hers as “diamonds in the center of her thighs?” Would you like to learn the origin of one of the most dirty and negative words in the English language? Cunt=anatomical jewel.
That should really make your jaw drop. So should this:
From “Cunt: A Declaration of Independence,” the book by Inga Muscio: ‘I looked up “cunt” in Barbara G. Walker’s twenty-five year research opus “The Women’s Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets,” and found it was in a title, back in the day. “Cunt” is related to words from India, China, Ireland, Rome and Egypt. Such words were either titles of respect for women, priestesses and witches, or derivatives of the names of various goddesses. The words bitch and whore also share a similar fate in our English language. This seemed rather fishy to me. Three words which convey negative meanings about women, specifically, all happen to have once had totally positive associations about women, specifically.’
And now “junk” has been added to the list. Our society has thought up a trendy, cool way to refer to our sexual organs. And it’s a synonym for garbage. What a great way to degrade and diminish us. (insert my feisty sarcasm here) Oh, really…think that is going to work? (more feisty sarcasm) Let’s get back to our diamonds. Yours, mine and the worlds. Because ladies, nothing is going to change this mentality unless we do. That’s why when someone calls you a “bitch” I want you to give them a big smile and say “thank you.” Because it’s honoring our ancestors and the original respect that word was given to woman. And we’re bringing it back! We are going to party with our hot, sexy diamonds and jewels!
Mama Gena does this very thing in her book “Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts.” (Get the link to this wonderful book in the Bitch Boutique top right) She has a whole chapter on “The Womanly Art of Sensual Pleasure.” I highly recommend this book. It will change how you look at your sensuality forever. Check out the related reading below for even more ideas and incite. So go out there and do woman kind a favor: Celebrate the beauty of your beautiful feminine core. And kiss Kesha and her idea of femininity to the curb! Love, Goddess
