The League Of Fuckin’ Bitches

8 comments

Once, we were The League of Funny Bitches.

Now, it’s time to branch out, broaden our horizons, to talk about everything that makes us the baddest bitches that we are.

We’ve all been called bitches, and very incredibly rarely in a positive context. We’re bitches because we won’t give it up or bitches because we gave it up too much. We’re bitches because we’re loud or quiet, confident or insecure, ambitious or meek. We’re called bitches by people who are afraid of the idea that women are fantastic by merit of being themselves–of accepting who they are and owning that shit. Bitch means assertive. Bitch means determined. Bitch means taking no shit.

It’s bullshit that being a bitch is a derogatory term. Why do we work so hard to be told that what we do makes us lesser in the eyes of others–men and women alike?

So screw it. Call us bitches. Call us what we are: fuckin’ bitches. We use that word to harden our armor, because in the words of Our Lady of Perpetual Attitude, Tina Fey:

The League Of Fuckin’ Bitches

I proudly introduce The League Of Fuckin’ Bitches Council: myself, Jen Reinmuth, and Abby Heugel. These bitches know what the fuck is up, know what it means to own the title bitch, and know the value of their own life stories. They, and you, are survivors of your own life stories. They, and you, have triumphed in becoming a formidable bitch. They, and you, are the baddest of the bad.

LOFB - Abby LOFB - Jen LOFB - Noa

Every month, we’re going to choose a theme relevant to the bitches of the world (all the bitches). We’ll tear it apart, top to bottom, in our Fearless, Fierce, Funny ways through writing, art, video, podcasting, and who the fuck knows what else we’ll think up. We’ll introduce you to other bitches who bring that theme to life. We’ll talk about it until we’re blue in the tits, and then the next month, we’ll choose a new one and start all over again.

Mondays and Wednesdays: Original content from myself, Jen, Abby, and a rotating cast of the baddest Bitches we know.

Fridays: It’s Fuckin’ Bitch Friday, where we choose a bitch who we feel embodies the monthly theme. It may be a video, a podcast, a single blog post or article or book or art piece or interview or sacrifice to ladyhood.

Last Wednesday Of Every Month: We do a group podcast wrapping up the month and dragging up old wounds (probably).

Here’s where YOU come in

The League has always thrived on the community, and that continues especially now. Strength in numbers, motherfucker.

Here’s how it works: Just as we get to be the ones to declare that being a Bitch is a good thing, we get to define what kinds of Bitches we are. You get to tell me (and the world) what your F-Word is.

Are you a Fabulous Bitch? Faithful Bitch? Fine? Fearsome? Fun? Free? Whatever your F is, own that shit. Wear it like a badge of honor, because that’s exactly what it is.

Do you know of someone who really embodies this month’s theme? Read or saw something you think fits in well? Did something yourself that fits in well with the theme? Got an idea about a theme we should cover? Tell us!

And so it begins. Thanks for starting this journey with me, with us. You mean the world to me. I’ll see you on Wednesday for our first original content post.

Wait, so how can I get in on this as one fabulous bitch? :)

I love the idea. Really do. It’s like when you tell your besties, “I love you bitches.” because there’s a difference between *those bitches* and *my bitches*.

For fuck sake, count me in! Now to carefully select my “F” word.

Frolicking? (Maybe. I do enjoy that the word lick is in it)

Fun? (Meh. Too easy)

Flabbergasted? (No.)

Furious? (Uh uh. I’m not THAT angry all the time)

Forgetful? (That one’s super accurate at least. Almost hits too close to home)

Ugh. I’ll get back to you all later.

Fantasmagorical bitch. Smart bitches with just the right amount of dirty!

I wonder if the website muttered four letter F-words, like Fern…

I was a tiny bit iffy on the rebranding of The League of Funny Bitches. I had to read the explanation of your motivations first before I could really get behind it. I do love swearing, though. And the only word more fun than “bitch” is “fuck.”

At least your detractors don’t have to reach far for an insult, right? They can just shake their fists impotently at the sky and exclaim “Those fuckin’ bitches!”

Hi Noa!

I think I’m…

Fancy – “Capricious preference, critical judgment, and taste.” Yes
Floozy – “A self-indulgent, predatory woman.” Definitely.

Haha anyhoo, thank you for adding my old blog, icecreamanddicks, to the LOFB but since I broke up with the turd who attempted to take total creative control during the life of ICAD, I made something even better to rid my world of his influence. If you think http://www.RosieComics.blogspot.com (rosiecomics.com) is good enough, can you please add it to the LOFB? :) It’s full of cute cartoons with big heads and stick figure extremities. Oh, and lots of color and lots of fucks. :)

Thank you!
Rosie
