a defense of “The Sexy”

When I called my mother last night to talk about the article…she was out!

But since I had been fuming all day, and creating my perfect defense for calling myself “sexy” on the internets…I was practically bubbling over with the anticipation of laying it on her. So…she might have received a few long winded messages from yours truly to the effect of:

#1: Mother, I appreciate that you’re concerned about me…but you have to trust me. I’m a grown woman, and I’ve been taking care of myself for years. What I do to express myself is no concern of yours, and what I call myself is my own business. I have a reason for calling myself “sexy” nerd girl, and that reason is….BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

fuck.

#2: I got cut off. Okay so I call myself “sexy” nerd girl because I feel sexy, as in I feel confident. Not because I’m some kind of sex worker on the internet, or I dress up in revealing outfits…that’s not the case at all! I feel like it’s important for people to express what makes them feel “sexy”…it’s all about pride, Mother. So there is no way you’re going to make me feel ashamed of….BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

Godammit!!

#3: Arg! I got cut off again. All I really want to say is that I love making videos, and I like my monicker too. I hope it inspires other nerdy women to feel sexy! And I’m super happy that my vlogs got press, I love that people are watching them. I thought you’d be proud me but noooooooooo you have to….BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

#4: Sorry. I didn’t mean to be rude in that last one, but can’t you just be proud of me? People like my videos. It’s a good thing. Have a good night. Bye.

Sumptin’ like that anyways…and she hasn’t called back yet. She’s either really mad, feeling really guilty – or she’s just hung over. My guess is hung over.
