You Look Like a Girl Who Can Take Care of Herself

"I'd tell you to watch out for that guy over there, but you look like a girl who can take care of herself."

What. The. Fuck. Does. That. Mean.?

I'm not a cage fighter. I'm not a stick figure. I'm healthy, yes. Black guys love my ass (true story). But I'm also not a pie-eating, couch surfing Midwesterner (no offense to any of the above).

My question is: when someone says that "you look like a girl who can take care of herself" ... what exactly does that mean? Does it mean you look like a bitch? You look tough? You look confident? You look like you really know how to flick the bean? I need some clarification so I know if I should go beat this person's ass or not.

  1. as a pie-eating, sometimes couch-surfing Midwestern, I feel it suggests some sort of latent rage, which I've only displayed potentially twice, but which made such an impression on a friend of mine that he didn't bother helping me tear down some guy who couldn't get my drift. I'm going with confident, and also, that person is probably a little scared of you. Congrats! Have some pie! :)
