Bitch or Bimbo?

February 4, 2012

Who is a woman without her feminine wisdom? Either a bitch or a bimbo!

We all know them, whether they are moms, co-workers, or bosses (or some days some aberrant sub personality of our own) it’s obvious which routine they are running – bitch or bimbo. What they have in common is that they generally make life miserable for themselves and for others.  Both carry denigrating overtones in the way they speak and act – denigrating to others and to themselves.

What does a bitch spend her time doing? She’s blaming, lashing out, criticizing, dismissing and making others wrong.  A bitch can be belligerent, unreasonable, rude, or aggressive.

How about a bimbo? While she might be physically attractive, she makes herself appear helpless, weakly dependent, unintelligent. A bimbo acts like she is unable to act effectively for herself, defenseless and in need of rescue or help.

Do they make an impact? Yes! But, not the kind of contribution that fashions a better world. Can they be leaders? Yes, but it’s not easy to follow them.

Look around you. A woman who is feminine and wise uses the power of her gentleness, the strength of her love, and the clarity of her insight and everyone flourishes. She’s a joy to be around with a lovely ability to discern what really matters.

Marilyn Monroe, in the recent film My Week with Marilyn (worth seeing BTW) is mostly portrayed as a bitch or bimbo. Only the young man sees the wisdom in her complete, right, and beautiful interior. Yet, in his youth, he misses her intelligence and commitment.

Who are the women in film or your life who are wise?

When I look around I notice that the wise women I know ask questions to wake others up to who they are and who they are becoming. They are empowering women leaders. Informed, judicious, prudent, and in-sync with the natural world, they express themselves without a lot of sticky attachment or power-tripping ego.

One wise woman (who constantly reminds me to slow down 🙂 is a teacher to me. Her vast spirit, physical body, emotional sensitivity, and intellectual perspectives all work together in harmony with the rhythms of rising and falling, birthing and dying. She works hard at times and completely relaxes at others. Her joy is contagious. Her sense of integrity springs from her truthfulness, personal honor, and the clear principles by which she lives. Her great sense of compassion touches my heart. I love to be around her!

Two questions: 

How would you describe a wise woman in your life? What does she teach you?

Can you be like the young man in the movie and see through the bitch or bimbos in your life into the center of their wisdom? How do you help them cultivate that instead?
