Hateful Ass Fuckers

At what point in our existence will we respect each other as people and stay the fuck out of another person’s personal life? At what point will “it ain’t nonya fuckin business what or who I do” finally register to conservative religious holier than who apparently are just as sinful but never talk about it assholes.

I read a Huffington Post article about a bill proposed of course by a conservative white Republican that would allow a business and/or business owner to invoke their religious beliefs to fire an unmarried woman if she became pregnant. Does that make sense to you guys? It certainly doesn’t to me. But what do I know? I’m just a stupid girl according to some people in this world.

Pardon my French but I just don’t understand why the fuck religious conservatives feel the need to not only impose their religious beliefs on others but propose laws inspired by a book that was written thousands of years ago. I don’t understand why people like the politicians in the article or even Kim Davis, Rowan County, Kentucky County Clerk, feel their religious freedoms are being infringed upon due to the actions of others.

Someone please explain to me how the lives of others infringe upon one’s religious, political or civil liberties. Explain to me how a politician would propose such a law that would directly impact not one but two lives if a single pregnant woman is fired from her job because she isn’t married.

So does that mean the following possible scenarios subject women to dismissal from their jobs if this piece of fuckery gains enough strength to pass:

  • Single women who do not wish to be married but want children
  • Single women who are raped, become pregnant due to said heinous act and decide to keep the child
  • Women who were in relationships but the partner leaves upon finding out the woman is pregnant you know there are some triflin fuckers out there who will and have done this
  • Women in relationships but not married
Does that also mean that lesbians suffer a twofold discriminative dismissal from their jobs because their pregnant and gay? I think that’s a valid question to ask. Religious conservatives already have a conniption about same-sex relationships. Imagine the “rioting” of the religious right if a pregnant lesbian showed up at work. Shocking!
Sigh, I just want to understand. I want to understand how a country founded upon the notion of every person has a right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” somehow finds ways to alienate its citizens in every which way possible. I want to understand how we as a country became so concerned with what goes on behind closed personal doors instead of being concerned with the lack of affordable healthcare, equal educational opportunities for all and gun control. How and why did affordable housing, veteran affairs and care, homeland security and other more pressing matters take a backseat to the private intimate lives of citizens?
I’m confused at how the separation between church and state has somewhat become non-existent over the last few years. I’m confused as to why someone else’s religious beliefs should directly impact my rights as a citizen of the United States of America. I grew up in a black Southern Baptist family. I know more about the Bible than most people would think I would. I believe in and pray to what I believe is a loving, generous and understanding God. Yet I’m a strong believer in finding out who God is or isn’t in your own way. i don’t believe that my religiously conservative family has a right to tell me how, when, where and why to believe in Jesus and the Holy Father without allowing me to get to know the Holy Trinity for myself.
So many people are turning away from religion because of laws that allow citizens and/or businesses to discriminate against others because of their religious beliefs. When did God become a discriminatory individual? When did freedom become limited only to the haves and not the have nots? How can we expect our children to grow up tolerant when their are so many intolerant people in the world? By the way, intolerance, racism and discrimination are learned notions and beliefs. Children aren’t born that way. Take that for which you will. It’s just a thought.

I am not built for this bullshit.

Day in and day out I’m under the microscope for no other fucking reason than I must be the most fascinating bitch around. Like everything I do which ain’t much since there’s always a watchful eye is a new-fangled thang and if Cara does it then it must be mutha fuckin GOLDEN!


Perhaps I’m reading too much into the situation. Perhaps just perhaps it is me that is overreacting and being over dramatic. I am willing to examine that aspect of the situation because let me be real here… I’m a woman who at any given time does not have a handle on her rational level-headed emotions. But at the same time, is it too much to ask for some mutha fuckin space? How hard is it to understand that my unresponsiveness is not an invitation for more feeble minded attempts to get acknowledgement from me?

I am emotional person. I know this about myself. I also know that I tend to wear my emotions in bright florescent colors haphazardly on my sleeves. People know what kind of mood I am in by my emotions and demeanor. Well, obviously not everyone does because I would not be writing this post if that were truly the case. There are indeed times when I crave attention or praise but not to the point where it becomes annoying and petty. There are also times when I don’t would like to be left alone to fume and stew by my lonesome for no other reason than I do not want to pick an unnecessary argument with anyone. Yet I find myself and everything I do and say under a fucking microscope. Rest assured I am not the most interesting person in the world. I put on my bra and panties like any other woman.

Sigh I am not here for anyone’s entertainment! Nor am I here to entertain foolishness that I’m pretty sure I have made clear I want no part of in any shape, form or fashion. Yet here I am… growing more and more annoyed and frustrated with the situation. Part of me knows that I can be better about the situation at hand. I constantly wrack my brain trying to figure out what I can do to make the situation better for everyone. I think back to all of my APO LEADS courses and wonder what personal development exercises I could suggest. Part of growing up is learning to turn the other cheek, right? Pero how long can one people take the good with the bad and wait?

Am I the only bitch in the room who hates the fuckin waiting game?

I shouldn’t be thinking about how I can sneak an entire bottle of ______________ insert any brand of premium hard liquor here in my purse on a daily basis. I shouldn’t have to feel like I have to change the person I am for anyone else other than me, myself and I.

I just shouldn’t because I’m too old for this bullshit!

Look at that… time to go!!

Call It What It Is







Ladies and gentleman, I would like to introduce you to Angry Black Girl. She is the stereotypical personification of a black female with fierce attitude times ten. She resides at the back of my mind for the obviously apparent reasons. Not only is that hoe LOUD and off her fuckin rocker, she ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS gets me in trouble; hence the reason why I often have to perform rigorous maintenance on my filter. Yes I realize that’s a side eye warranted comment but I can explain.

I’m pretty sure I have mentioned the fact that I tend to speak without thinking. This non thinking before speaking first notion occurs more often than not but it occurs more frequently if I feel when I am annoyed, feeling attacked or extremely tired. Lmfao I feel like I should come with a warning label attached to my ass. Lately, I have been working extra hard to make sure I actually think before speaking. I cannot express enough how extremely tiring that can be especially in a setting that warrants a certain type of behavior and demeanor which is yet another reason why Angry Black Girl is the biggest pain in my left butt cheek.

See this bitch, not to be confused with Lady Deathstrike who is slightly more violent than Angry Black Girl, will sprout off at the mouf any chance she gets. In fact, just recently, an acquaintance and I had a choice between one of two events to attend. It was told that another person already opted for the first event. So without even thinking twice (or even before) I made the comment of “so then the second event is available?” While the comment got a slight chuckle, it also got a side eye and a wtf look. Totally was not one of my finer moments but it just goes to show how incredibly asinine I can be.

I suppose I should also mention the fact that Angry Black Girl doesn’t take rejection or dismissal very well. Not that she wants to be the center of attention because to be perfectly honest, she prefers being incognegro. Yes you read that right! I didn’t stutta! Why be the center of attention or in the middle of the action when one can quietly and mischievously scheme in the background. Better to keep the plan to yo damn self instead of sharing with the hoe next to you who might just stab yo ass in the back and take credit for YOUR detailed little plot to take over the world. Insert Pinkie and the Brain theme music here.

Now don’t get me wrong, in some instances Angry Black Girl has been more than just a little useful. I mean whereas Cheycara is more reserved and quiet; Angry Black Girl takes charge of the situation and makes the situation less favorable for the other person; hence my current predicament. I’m working hard to remain Cheycara Elaine all day every day except da weekend ba-bay but there’s always something that prevents me from being that way. Yes I could be an adult about the situation and put on my big girl panties but shit no matter how hard I try this bitch keeps trying to make her presence known. I feel like she’s the part of my personality that is like a Gemini. She’s either extremely useful, extremely troublesome with little to no middle of the road reasoning.

At any rate, I’m sure as I grow older, as my mum (not to be confused with my mother. Mum is one of my adopted mothers) would say, you lose your filter and you stop caring about what other people say. I’m only in my 30s and I’ve already lost my filter. Jesus help the person who really pisses me off because I have a feeling Angry Black Girl is up for joining the ChokeAHoe tribe.
