Blunt women are often mislabeled as b*tches. While there can certainly be some overlap there occasionally, they're not necessarily one and the same.

A b*tch will deliberately deliver a remark that's biting and cutting to undermine or hurt you, whereas a blunt gal is simply saying what she truly believes, and assumes you're strong and secure enough to be able to handle it. After all, isn't honesty the best policy?


Yeah, usually. But admit it: Sometimes you really just don't want the truth. This sentiment is what makes a blunt girl's life so hard. They respect you too much to feed you bullsh*t, but then you just end up pissed at her anyway.

Here are just a few struggles blunt women everywhere suffer through every damn day. And remember: Filters are for water, not for thoughts.
