I Put a Spell on You...

I've read a lot of women powering articles. I've heard about them on the news. It's a topic that might not ever die out. Why? Because it's a topic that changes as the decades go on. As a women, myself, I have great respect for women who have originated, founded, governed, prophesied, created great art, fought for our rights, and for ourselves. These are the type of women we all need to be like. We need to make our own stories and prove that we are equal to men.
As many fairy tales portray… the prince comes for the girl. That’s why I've always loved the story Beauty and the Beast. It wasn’t about a prince falling in love with a girl, but a girl falling in love with the personality of a monster. This story doesn’t get as much attention as like Cinderella has. I mean think about it… how many recreations of Cinderella have you seen/heard of? For me I can name a solid 3. Beauty and the Beast lets little girls know that they don't always have to find the nicest looking guy because looks only last so long. They need to learn at a young age that a mans personality is what really matters.
I’m sure you’re wondering at this point why I even mentioned Beauty and the Beast because it doesn't relate much to what I started off with. Well here’s why… believe it or not, women have the biggest impact on a man. Belle was the answer to the Beast turning into a man again. This is why “sex” is used for cars, billboards, etc. With a simple glance, a women can have a guy come talk to her without saying a word.
But why do we waste that power on men in the first place? I’ve seen plenty of long term relationships end. What I want to know is why don't we use the “sex sells” method for other things? Now I’m not saying that yeah it’s okay for women to exploit themselves and use sex to get what they want, because I don’t agree with that at all. But is it so wrong to make a few facial motions to get what you want (and not in the sex way)? Maybe instead of using our powers for the good, we can use them for evil.
I find myself doing this everyday. I’ll “flirt” with someone and won’t even realize I’m doing it until I realize that they're doing it back. I can’t even tell you how many times I get flirty with guys because I want something and I get it. It’s like men go under a spell. By acting “cute and innocent” (which is my most useful power) women have men melting in her hands like putty.
I strongly believe that women should be treated equal to men, but who said we couldn't have a little fun with it…?
