Recently, one of my readers suggested I do something I never in a million years would have originally considered…
She said, “You should make a YouTube channel called ‘ASK CAT’ or ‘ASK PUSSY CAT’ where people email or tweet you questions about relationships and sex and marriage and shopping and adulting and all kinds of random crap. Then you could create videos replying to them!”
My reply was, “That would be boring as all hell.”
To which she said, “Not if you were a total smartass about it!”
Insert devilish grin here….
So my question is this: Is that something you would want to watch? And furthermore, is it something you’d want to participate in?
If so, comment below with your first question (it can be serious, sarcastic, whatever! The sky’s the limit) and I just might answer it in a video. You can even hashtag it #askingforafriend. I won’t judge. 😉
Looking forward to this new *maybe* project.
Happy Saturday, folks!
So… after *mumble*grumble*cough* months of a social media hiatus, I have made my triumphant return. And with my return comes a new book release, a release party, some kick ass teasers, a new readers/ranters group, and a list of things I plan to talk about in my blog in the coming weeks (all topics I should, but hey, life is short.)
I’m not a diehard feminist by any means… but this annoyed me-
I’m on the city council for my town. My official title is “alderman”. Not “alderwoman” or “alderperson”. No. Alderman.
That’s not what annoys me…
What annoys me is when someone writes a letter to the city council and addresses it, “Dear Gentlemen.”
…Forgive me if I’m wrong, but isn’t there about a thousand different ways they could have started that letter? “Dear Gentleman” isn’t even that popular of a way to start a letter, not even when addressing a council such as the one I’m a part of.
“Dear City Council”, “To Whom It May Concern”, “Dear Members of the Council”… any of those would have been just peachy. I would haven been okay with “Dear Mayor and Aldermen of the City.”
But, “Dear Gentleman?”
That’s just annoying.
I’m one of two women on the council, and of course the other woman isn’t as nitpicky as I am, so it didn’t bother her… buuuut it just stuck with me.
I’m not writing this to make an example of sexism in small government organizations or anything like that… I’m just pointing out that, as a woman, it annoys me to be referred to as a gentleman.
