You know, no one has ever called me a whore, slut, slapper, tart, hussy, tramp, trollop, streetwalker, indeed prostitute, or any other derogatory female term, even though I have actually very officially, very publically and very, very literally been all of those things all through my teens. Yet loads of other girls who actually weren't any of these, or merely exhibited minute modicums of slightly flashy dress or makeup for example, frequently had these terms applied to them. I mean, one would think that such terms would be used against each other even *more* at an all-girls school what with the prevalence of adolescent female-bitchyness, yet despite what I always did, and what everyone knew I always did, and the way I constantly dressed and looked and what I so openly goddamn became even just in the presence of a male teacher (let alone walking down the local streets), no one ever applied any to me or subjected me to such behaviour. It's only now that I've realised it, and when you think about it at face value, it doesn't make any sense at all. Why did the other girls get bitched at with these terms when it wasn't even really true about them and they were guilty of nothing?
