I have two words this week. The first one I used during my daily game of Scrabble with Sir. Not many points and it’s not really in keeping with our usual habit of trying to find smutty words but it was too good to pass up.
Harpy – In Ancient Greek and Roman mythology Harpies were monsters with bird bodies and women’s faces. They were often portrayed as vicious, punishing wrong-doers and carrying people away. Of course now it’s another word to describe women, the Urban Dictionary definition: A word to describe a women who draws a man into her grasp by pleasing the victims biggest desire only to destroy all that makes him what he is.
Which brings me to another word I really like the sound of – Harridan – but I’m not so keen on the definition: Strict, bossy or belligerent old woman.
Is it just me or do there seem to be way more bad words about women than men?
