A slut is someone, usually a woman, who’s stepped outside of the very narrow lane that good girls are supposed to stay within. Sluts are loud. We’re messy. We don’t behave. In fact, the original definition of ‘slut’ meant ‘untidy woman.’ But since we live in a world that relies on women to be tidy in all ways, to be quiet and obedient and agreeable and available (but never aggressive), those of us who color outside of the lines get called sluts.

Thus, the income premium for disagreeableness is more than three times stronger for men than for women.”  Read more…

 Of the five major personality traits, openness, conscientiousness and extroversion are clearly revealed in people’s spaces. Of the other two, agreeableness and neuroticism are more internal, he said.

All of which remind me of the reason why I decided to stop lying and be honest about who I am besides the fact that I am a bad liar, and why I decided to close my Facebook account.

And no it is not because I am neurotic, it’s because I don’t care much for agreeableness!
