I get it. I really do. You’re not actually calling her your woman, you just mean she’s your girlfriend. After all, she calls you her man.
Except, you are calling her your woman. You may not be implying anything, heck, maybe I’m inferring everything you’re saying. But at the end of the day, referring to people as yours implies that they’re your property.
And the fact of the matter is that many people do believe that they own other people, be it their children or their partners. You don’t own her. You don’t own anybody. And she doesn’t own you.
When I hear you use phrases like this, it makes me think that you possibly have some thought in your mind, as subconsciously as it may be, that you believe that you can control her in some way in another. But you don’t actually believe that, you say. I know you don’t, or at least if you do, you know that you don’t actually have the right to control anybody but yourself.
So yeah, I get it. She’s not your woman. She’s your girlfriend, or wife, or partner or lover. But if she’s not your woman, then don’t call her that, and hell, next time you hear her call you her man, challenge that too. Because people as property is never cool and totally outdated.
