Remember "Don't Call Me Baby," the chart-topping bop from 1999? It's basically a feminist anthem and its message is still totally relevant today.
1. "Don't think that I'm not strong / I'm the one to take you on."
2. "Don't underestimate me, boy, I'll make you sorry you were born."
And you were like: "Never underestimate the power of a woman."
(Nellie McClung, via WomensRightsWorld)
3. "Don't call me baby."
And you were like: "It’s not what you call me, but what I answer to."
(African proverb, via LivingEmpowered)
4. "You know I don't belong to you."
5. "It's time you knew I'm not your baby."
6. "I belong to me, so don't call me baby."
7. "Behind my smile is my I.Q."
And from the 2000 ANTHEM "Who The Hell Are You?"
8. "I don't take it, the way you like to give it."
9. "Who the hell are you to treat me like that?"
And you were like: "Remember, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
(Eleanor Roosevelt, via LivingEmpowered)
