I am nobody’s wife, but I am proudly #filthymouthed.

I wrote this as well as an entire chapter in my new book about #WhyISayFuck, and the power and importance of profanity nbcnews.com/think/opinion/…
The fact that “filthy mouthed” was the only adjective, no name, just the association with profanity, tells you all you need to know about the power and importance of profanity. That’s why Profanity is one of The Seven Necessary Sins For Women and Girls.
And my book video is also #FilthyMouthed #7NecessarySins

When she shouted “Fuck you. Fuck your. Fuck you!” at her sentencing hearing today, #Ugandan feminist Dr. Stella Nyanzi reminded us: fewer people are as expert as her at disrupting patriarchal authority w/power of her words. She is the star of the Profanity chapter in my new book
Profanity is an essential tool in disrupting patriarchy and its rules. It is the verbal equivalent of civil disobedience. And Stella Nyanzi demolishes “politeness” and “respectability” used as straitjackets against us. She is radically and consciously rude
My new book via @BeaconPressBks begins with profanity. I revel in being deliberately and consciously profane. As I recorded the audiobook, I reveled in every “fuck” I wrote! #WhyISayFuck

In honour of the news that footsoldier of the patriarchy & fascist enabler Sarah Sanders is stepping down as liar-in-chief, reposting my essay on importance of profanity, which starts with Michelle Wolf’s roast of her at White House Correspondents Dinner google.com/amp/s/www.nbcn…
Profanity is one of the Seven “Sins” in my new book, out Sept. 17 via @BeaconPressBks. You can pre-order now! #7NecessarySins
Profanity is an important tool in defying, disobeying and disrupting patriarchy and its rules. Patriarchy punishes women for profanity because it wants us to forever remain within the straitjacket of niceness and politeness, despite the violence it subjects us to. #WhyISayFuck

My essay on the importance of profanity is out! (Read the editors note and know that I spell f**k without **) nbcnews.com/think/opinion/… #WhyISayFuck
Isn’t interesting that in response to my essay on the importance of profanity for women, the dogs of patriarchy bark extra loudly
It is instructive that in the era of Trump — a man who has torpedoed the notion of civility — women are still expected to be polite and demure. “She did not cater to the room” was an actual criticism of Michelle Wolf’s performance at #WHCD
