Double Standard… It’s hard out here!

I’m not just a body to be objectified.  I struggle nearly daily with all the pressure to be beautiful and act a certain way to be liked and accepted, but I am learning that it is way more important to be RESPECTED.  I am a woman with a body, heart, soul, brilliance, resilience, intelligence, strength, beauty, bright ideas, creativity, and so much more.  

“Hard Out Here”

I suppose I should tell you what this bitch is thinking
You’ll find me in the studio and not in the kitchen
I won’t be bragging ’bout my cars or talking ’bout my chains
Don’t need to shake my ass for you ’cause I’ve got a brain

If I told you ’bout my sex life, you’d call me a slut
When boys be talking about their bitches, no one’s making a fuss
There’s a glass ceiling to break, uh-huh, there’s money to make
And now it’s time to speed it up ’cause I can’t move at this pace

[Bridge:]
Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to say
I’ll go ahead and say them anyway
Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits

[Chorus:]
It’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard out here for a bitch
It’s hard for a bitch (for a bitch) for a bitch,
It’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch
It’s hard for a bitch (for a bitch) for a bitch,
It’s hard
It’s hard out here

If you’re not a size six, then you’re not good looking
Well, you better be rich, or be real good at cooking
You should probably lose some weight ’cause we can’t see your bones
You should probably fix your face or you’ll end up on your own

Don’t you want to have somebody who objectifies you?
Have you thought about your butt? Who’s gonna tear it in two?
We’ve never had it so good, uh-huh, we’re out of the woods
And if you can’t detect the sarcasm, you’ve misunderstood

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

A bitch, a bitch, a bitch, bitch, bitch [4x]

Inequality promises that it’s here to stay
Always trust the injustice ’cause it’s not going away
Inequality promises that it’s here to stay
Always trust the injustice ’cause it’s not going away

[Bridge]

[Chorus 2x]

Bitch
