got balls?

here is another awesome post by demosthenes, and in classic demos style, she says it like it is. just so you know, you may want to proceed with caution LOL. enjoy!


dear valentine,

its strange to me that when someone does something courageous, strong, or tough a person might say "wow, do they have some balls!" (or any other of the 5 million variations on that phrase). really? testicles? the single weakest part of a mans body? the part that by kicking (or even just tapping kinda hard) you can bring a grown man down to his knees in tears asking what he did to deserve the pain?

how the f&*^ did that end up being a euphemism for strength!? now, pussy on the other hand, we all know what that's a euphemism for. weak and scared. ya, srlsy, the part of a woman's body that survives pushing an 8 lb watermelon out of its 10 cm opening is the name given to someone who's supposed to be weak!

i'll challenge my husband to a south park style roshambo contest (episode 112, its hilarious) and we'll see who wins, his balls or my pussy!

LOVE IT! How true is that? And ironic that the male anatomy get credit where it isn't due! Thanks for speaking up for the girls! LOL

Well said! I'm pretty sure the kitty would win. In my case it was 8 lbs., 10 oz. Feel free to be impressed. Ah ha ha ha
