There is this club I want to tell you about, it is rather exclusive and hard to get into. Membership is life long and most are born into it. When the time is right they will find you. It is not a cult, coven or commune, but rather a secret society, an allegiance.
For years I wondered why I couldn’t be like all the other girls. I tried to be their friend, I wanted desperately to “fit in” and for what? Disappointment and a bad hair cut? Over time I grew cold, I took shelter in the brotherhood; I became “one of the guys”.
Whiskey, hockey, and denim, I was their equal…with boobs. Full disclosure though, having a crush on one of your “bros” is the absolute worst! What do you expect? I was still a woman after all; I just chose to tuck my femininity, you know, for safe keeping.
Then, one day, everything changed. I met these girls… who were like me. Who had always gotten along better with guys, who had more friends of the opposite gender than their own, who hated drama but still loved being a woman*. From that point on I saw the world differently.
The Girl Haters Club was founded in ancient times, foraged by the sweat and blood of women who wanted to change the world and were ostracized by their own kind for it. The movement grew stronger and was passed on, generation to generation. And a countless number of women have since found their place in the world within its welcoming arms.
The women of the GHC are strong, bold, and often beautiful. Many were misunderstood as children and often teased or left behind by their piers. This only made them stronger and forced them to adapt. These are the women I proudly call my friends. Their hearts are big, full and understanding. They believe, much like I do, that you can have a genuine heart and the mouth of a sailor (though this is not a requirement).
We deny entry to no one, all are welcome upon accepting the terms and conditions.
-Don’t be a senseless bitch
-Understand that haters gunna hate, but that doesn’t mean you should
-Know what you are talking about- don’t be a parrot
-Speak from your heart, listen with it too
-Be honest and genuine
-Be true to yourself
-Except the differences in people, just because they aren’t like you doesn’t mean you get to treat them like shit
All that to say, just be a good person.
Are you a member of the GHC? I would love to hear your story.
*please note, none of the members of this club are lesbians (that I know of) we just really like dudes as friends and think what society has done to most women is the worst!
