I’m a lady who knows what she wants; I gots me ambition and dreams and opinions by the boat load. Unfortunately, I’m also saddled with the burden of being nice all the damn time. Can’t handle awkwardness! Can’t handle disappointing others! Must be the nicest person in the room! Can never acknowledge my own strengths or rightness, even when the situation demands it! Cannot take too much charge of my life lest anyone think I do not require male guidance! So, I’m issuing an official Lunchtime Poll declaration for all of you out there who, like me, need a little fire under your ass: this is the week of the Persephone Magazine BAMFs – Badass Mother Fuckers.
That’s right, you heard me. We’re going to be BAMFs all week long, you and I. Might just be that we demand our bosses hear us across the conference table in that big meeting. Maybe you just need to tell that passive-aggressive family member to shut up and screw off. Or, could be it’s a matter of strolling proudly into the Department of Motor Vehicles and taking a ticket, even if (like me) that place makes you anxious as hell. Most importantly, we’re going to share those experiences (past, present, and future) right here and now. How are you going to be a BAMF today, tomorrow, or in the next month? How were you a BAMF yesterday, last weekend, or last month? The time has come for the meek to rise and demand to be heard. Tell us all about it in the comments!
