Unleash your “inner hoe” – and own it

May, 12, 2014

So I put a one-pound coin into the vending machine downstairs and pressed the diet Coke button (obviously because there was no full fat Coke left to my disappointment) and out pops a bottle of orange Fanta. That was heart breaking. The inner beast of the vending machine was probably laughing her dusty ass off at my look of shock/pain; she had released the mini-beast that is Fanta. Somehow I started to think of how very similar this machine was to a friend of mine. She’s sweet, really the loveliest person (just like the vending machine, full of goodies and treats) but her inner hoe-ability (well, Fanta) is on levels I cannot even bring myself to quantify.

This lovely evening I want to briefly talk about the inner hoe vs. outer inner hoe “issue”. Everyone has an inner hoe/slut/freak. This is a platform where I can express the truth and how I feel so you can’t even try and counter this in any possible way. You cannot tell me that as a teenager, given the opportunity, with the right time, place and under the right conditions, you wouldn’t do some of the freaky things you think about. You my darling reader, have an inner hoe, burning to be unleashed.

It’s the honest truth. You want to feel that sensation your inner hoe puts on your brain, you just think it’s “hoe-ish”. And, if you don’t know, boys can be hoes too and it’s all right. I’m not trying to promote nympho-ism or satyriasis (which by the way is a woman and man, respectively, that eats, breathes and thinks sex) but people are different. Some people show their inner hoes to different degrees, which then makes people perceive them as (outer) hoes. Let that inner freak loose (in a sensible and smart way of course).

Uh, so the next thing is someone comes to tell you you’re a hoe. Eh, oh well. If they can name at least 3 guys/girls you’ve slept with this year already… then sorry yeah, but you’ve got to accept it. Own it. You have to believe in whatever you do. If what you can do is be a hoe, darling reader, you better own it. What would be completely devastating, is if everyone knows you’re a hoe but you’re actually a scarps hoe.

You can’t decide to be something and be rubbish at it, it doesn’t benefit you in any way, and in fact you might as well not even do it, especially women. I talk a lot about women being independent a lot, mostly because, obviously I am a woman myself (doh!) but I cannot bear to see a woman that is weak in this time where women are allowed to do so much. Be great ladies, don’t allow some man with a rod no longer than my hand (even if it is longer too…) take away your independency no matter his status, because nobody is allowed to do that to you. Play to your strengths, own your strengths, let everyone know that you own your strengths but don’t forget to keep your head up and stay lady-like.

    People are pin pointing the word ‘hoe’ too much. How about inner freak, inner sexual demon or inner sex fiend – whatever!
    Everyone loves sex on some level (if you don’t you haven’t done it right!) Everyone loves having sex in different ways or with different amounts of people. Some save it for that special someone and others want the mystery and passion of a one night stand. There are people who enjoy dogging, swinging, bondage etc etc. How ever one may choose to show this inner freak or how often is up to them.

    Hoe for a start is a derogatory term, i agree that people should accept the fact they shouldn’t be shocked to be called these terms when there is clear evidence because then they are lying to themselves, there must be some part of them which likes it and the attention whether good or bad that follows. And with regards to ”the inner hoe” i understand what you mean as although i wouldn’t use that term, everybody has that side that they may or may not show but i think more importantly if you can share it with your significant other and no one else, it’s well.. more exciting, that you’re their ‘chosen word’ but secretly for their eyes only, as sharing it with everyone just shows how little respect you have for yourself and who then would have respect for you.

    I believe that sleeping around doesn’t make you a hoe. I think being a hoe means you purposely hurt people because you prioritize sex over important things eg friendship etc. Basically you’re only a hoe if you sleep with your friends boyfriend etc.

    I don’t agree with my ‘inner hoe’ will show when it will because I have some respect for my self and calling my self a hoe would be downgrading and disrespectful to my self so I rather disagree with the article just my opinion

    I totally believe that hoe is a derogatory term, and cannot comprehend why people call themselves this. Referring to yourself a hoe, is insulting, some use it in a jokey way but even so, you are just portraying yourself negatively. Being sexually active is perfectly acceptable, the term “hoe” does not need to be used to express if a girl has sex. The idea though that a girl is called a hoe or whore because she has sex with more than three people is laughable; through the society we have been brought up in, we have been encouraged to believe that it is wrong for a girl to “sleep around”. However if a guy does this, then he is usually classed as a “lad” by his peers. We shouldn’t discriminate females for being sexually active, therefore there is no need to use these derogatory terms.

    I agree with this post almost completely, though I’d prefer to not think of my inner freak as a “hoe”. I agree, it’s derogatory. Some people are into the whole name calling and abusive language; who am i to judge?! I’d just not think of myself in that way.

    I think “hoe is quite a derogatory term as well, there’s nothing wrong with having an active sex life, as long as you’re doing things safely. You shouldn’t even refer to yourself as a “hoe”, subconsciously it’s almost as if you’re insulting yourself and condemning your actions. As a feminist myself, really the whole “slut shaming” shouldn’t even be a thing. I don’t know that’s just what I took from this article!

    “You cannot tell me that as a teenager, given the opportunity, with the right time, place and under the right conditions, you wouldn’t do some of the freaky things you think about.”

    Yeah sure, and then perhaps sorely regret them afterwards…
    I guess things often play out much better in your head than they do in reality.

    This seems like the author is getting more out of this than the readers. I agree that people should try not to repress themselves sexually, but the way this article reads it seems that it’s just the author justifying her actions to herself. And not in very good English, either. She uses far too many vague phrases like ‘own it’ and ‘inner hoe’ and ‘scarps hoe’ without clearly defining them; they seem to have been plucked at will from Cosmo.
