Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size  
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,  
The stride of my step,  
The curl of my lips.  
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,  
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,  
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.  
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.  
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,  
And the flash of my teeth,  
The swing in my waist,  
And the joy in my feet.  
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered  
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,  
They say they still can’t see.  
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,  
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.  
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.  
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,  
The bend of my hair,  
the palm of my hand,  
The need for my care.  
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

--Maya Angelou

    1. Maybe she just understands sociopaths and how to navigate around them.

  2. Just like K.C. Anthony. Amanda Knox, Jodi Arias,
    and Jamie Lund!
    Like Ted Bundy they may have TAKEN lives, but they could also
    SAVE many more lives. Suppose someone like Elliot Rodgers was
    "helped" by such women? Scores of people would be alive NOW
    that are no longer alive, and it could be very lucative for them as
    well.

  3. The kind of women that could make money by helping people like Elliot Rodgers are called hookers.

    1. I think they would at best have an analgesic effect. To help Elliot Rodgers his wounded narcissism needs to be addressed and defused.

  6. Just watched a movie for everyone who wonders if they are a sociopath. It's about 2 kids who'd likely be classified as personality disordered. But it's not tragic. It's hilarious. It's called "Moonrise Kingdom". (same director as Grand Budapest Hotel with some really excellent cameos)

  7. The antisocial male is a rather pathetic thing, a sad victim of circumstance perhaps.

    As for the antisocial female... well, it's much easier to blend in that way, especially when you're of the 'weaker sex'.

    3. Considering the advantages and disadvantages between the genders from an antisocial's perspective.

      @Bob
      Yes, but it's also rather sexist to assume that sexism only applies to one of the genders.

    4. That was obvious in the statement, hence the irony.
