7 Feminist Moments From GOT Season 7 That Will Make You Damn Proud to Be a Woman

Do Tell: What do you Take too Seriously?

It's totally normal to take things a little seriously sometimes -- even if they are meant to be funny or light-hearted, we females can be overly sensitive from time to time! You all shared what you're a baby about, what do you take too seriously? What do you take as a personal attack that was really only intended to be a playful conversation starter or a loving tease?

I take sexist comments very seriously. Feminism is not a dirty word. I really sensitive about my weight and looks. Oh yeah, I completely agee with trace face. I hate it when people make comments like, "your legs are as white as a ghost's," and follow it up with "no offense." That's a pretty offensive thing to say. Why is paleness something negative?

I take it too seriously when I'm out at a club with my boyfriend and the bartenders are dressed (if that can be said) in lingerie. It is such a turn off as a woman to go to a bar where the bartenders look like cheap hookers. I understand that sex sells, but it just pisses me off b/c my body is just as good, if not better, than most of theirs but I am not going to show up to the club in a bra and panties just to get noticed. I can't stand the attention whores!

My weight! I'm a little underweight and people always make comments "oh, I wish I could be you" or "Are you anorexic?". It takes forever to put weight back on after I get sick and No, I don't have that either. Gah.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is so sensitive about her weight. The thing is: I think my body is great. Sure, I've got a little bit of belly-fat, but my legs and arms are perfectly toned, my butt is awesome, and I have a BMI of 20. So nothing to complain about, really. However, my boyfriend manages to say something about that tiny little bit of belly fat EVERY DAY. One part of me wants to give in and start exercising compulsively just to get the belly out of the way, but the other part of me doesn't want to give in to his idea of perfection. And although he says he's just joking about it, I can't NOT take it serious, especially when he's saying it EVERY DAY. Oh, and sexist comments. Especially when they come from the same guys over and over again "who are just kidding". Yeah right.

I take my finances very seriously. My boyfriend will buy a $4 tub of cheeseballs and then wonder the next day why he has no money for lunch. I am not cheap, but I do calculate the money per wear, or if I really need something bead enough to buy it.

it depends on my mood and the situation if I get irritated with someone's comments or jokes. The latest comment that set me off a couple weeks ago was from my boyfriend, because I was trying to decide if I was going to take a run with him or stay home and do laundry. He called me lazy (jokingly, since I didn't know if I wanted to run) and I got so angry that I told him to go by himself while I stay home and "be lazy". So yeah...he saw me lounging in bed when he returned. =P It set me off cuz I do so much work around the house~ cleaning, HIS laundry, I work full time, and I have a extra part time job on the weekends, AND I still find time to go to the gym or run everday to stay in shape like he likes....for him to call me lazy in that context was just rude. =P

When people say: Are you going to have more kids? No?!? Why not? Also, I take work really seriously so when I don't do something perfectly, I get really upset with myself. And I'm pretty sensitive when my husband teases me, about anything. More than usual lately.

I'm a serious gal, lol. There isn't anything wrong with being serious. You need to have a good sense of humour when things go wrong and when people find you too much. Just laugh about it. I don't apologize for being who I am. Serious is better than being stupid and fluffy. Man if a guy is fluffy it puts me off completely..ha ha ha

Okay, when ever someone says "How are you still single?" totally pisses me off! Like, I think they mean it as a compliment that someone hasn't snagged me yet. However, I tend to interpret it as an insult, as if they're saying, "There must be something wrong with you if you're still single".

I probably get more irate that the average person when someone litters in front of me.

I hear you, partysugar. I was working from home for 5 years and it totally ticked me off that people would call and want to chat for hours - like I had nothing to do. Zero respect.

i take driving very seriously- i hate it when ppl start talking about how they were putting on makeup/texting/eating lunch while driving as an amusing anecdote (as a recent thread on here did). it's not. and during the split second you eyes are on your cellphone/food/reflexion in the mirror and not on the road, you can unwittingly murder someone or ruin their lives for ever. maybe i'm taking this too personally but i really don't think so. - got her face crushed by car candy

I hate it when people joke that I don't have a "real job" and during the work day my friends call me and want to do things because they figure I dont have any work to do.

I can't stand obnoxious comments about my skin tone. I'm Irish, so I don't tan and I'm rather light (I mean I can get SOME color, I'm not translucent, but I don't tan) and some people are just so ridiculous. "Girl, you need a tan" or "Wow, you're white" It's like....uh, NO SH!T I'm white! Thanks for letting me know, I wasn't quite aware of my skin color! And no, I DONT need a tan because I can't get one, and I'd rather have light, smooth skin than become a wrinkled-leathery mess in 20-30 years like the sun-worshippers, thank you very much. When you beeotches are diving head first into a large vat of Alpha-hydroxy, I'll be basking in my youthful, wrinkle free complexion and laughing at you. ha! /end rant.. lol, sorry had to get that out. it's just so annoying. It's the equivalent of me going up to an african lady and saying "DAYUM girl, you are really dark brown! Maybe you should put some skin lightener on or something" Doesn't that sound ridiculous? Yes. What ever happened to being happy with the way you were born? JEEZ.

I used to get really upset when my boyfriend would grab my butt in public. I asked him not to do it several times, but he thought he was being cute and did it anyway. Once, I 'accidentally' elbowed him in the gut after he grabbed me. He hasn't done it since. I'm usually not at all violent, but it seemed to get it through his head that time.

I definitely cannot handle anything that has to do with my weight, even compliments. I also get really defensive when people make fun of my dog.

This may not be what you are looking for, but anything that has to do with my weight. That totally sets me off.
