Don’t Call Me a ‘Woman Entrepreneur’
I think we can leave my gender out of my job title.
Yes, I am technically a female business owner, a woman entrepreneur, a lady boss, and a chick, broad, lassie, dame, gal, maiden, and a wench in some moods.
My womanhood effects many things, from the size of the pockets in my jeans to the expectations of labor division, and the attraction my husband has for me.
Guess what it does not effect?
My ability to do my job effectively.
I am a writer. My perspective is certainly a female one, I’ll give you that.
Can we all agree that you can do anything you set your mind to, regardless of gender? I am a business owner, an entrepreneur, and a writer.
I do not need those to be clarified by my girl-ness. The fact that I have a uterus is useless to my ability to form cohesive sentences, build a story, or help you write a book.
Some day, I hope that we can all get past the fact that *GASP!* a woman can have her very own business, without a man. To help get to that point, instead of having headlines or discussing “Female Entrepreneur NameName is Launching A New Whatever!”
Perhaps try “NameName, Owner of Company, is Launching New Whatever!”
Simple fix, new connotation.
Feel free to not work with me based on personality, my stupid hair, and my work, but don’t do anything based on gender alone.
What a waste of a whole person, to reduce them to just a boy or girl.
