Comment on Do I Intimidate You? by Chloë https://www.bangsandabun.com/2017/05/do-i-intimidate-you/#comment-1552986 Sun, 21 May 2017 00:40:59 +0000 https://www.bangsandabun.com/?p=6826#comment-1552986 I haven’t read your blog in a very long time and it’s great to see how far you’ve come! You’ve always been inspirational and I certainly wouldn’t say intimidating. I am a very quiet, reserved kind of person generally, but have over the past few years gained confidence and grown into a grown ass woman. I’ve noticed now that when I actually assert myself, particularly men seem to think that I am “bossy” or “intimidating. I’m really not, but it’s a symptom of a society that doesn’t understand how to give men and women equal standing just yet I guess. Either way, we’ll keep on keeping on!

Unless you’re wielding some sort of weapon, there’s not really anything for them to be intimidated by – unless they’re scared of women who have opinions? It’s a bit of a sorry thing for them to be intimidated by that. There are a lot of better and more appropriate words to use if you think someone is, for example, being unreasonable or overbearing or unfair, without using ‘intimidating’ – which makes me think that you’re totally right. It’s not a conversation point to try and resolve conflict, it’s a word used to try and silence you and put you in your place.

I’m a multi-dimensional person, we all have that in us. My point in this piece is more that the word is used almost to silence us even when we’re not even close to bordering on being bitchy.

I hope you feel better for calling me a bitch though 😉 Have a great day!

We are all in the wrong sometimes, so a general “bite me” attitude isn’t helpful.

Comment on Operation: Get Me Stronger by Claire https://www.bangsandabun.com/2017/05/operation-get-stronger/#comment-1552903 Thu, 11 May 2017 19:10:36 +0000 https://www.bangsandabun.com/?p=6821#comment-1552903 Sooo, after being happily fit until this time last year, am now about to have an op on my wrist tendons and get physio for a spinal tear, needless to say I’m currently in shit shape. But like you say, this is the stuff that makes us appreciate how our precious machines work and how they need to be maintained. Once my body has mended I am totally looking to your posts for motivation to get strong again. Our bodies are the best thing we have.

There are so many women out there (me included) whose goal is to be strong. I’m just back training after a major op. Being physically strong improves my mental health and keeps my soul nourished. Looking forward to following your story in the next few weeks
