I'm in need of some serious input.

I am starting to prepare a portfolio for an upcoming LadyFest.  I've been planning a "Real Ladies" series of shirts and accessories.  The idea is to confront some stereotypical beliefs about womanly manners.

So without further ado, here are the slogans I've come up with so far.  If you could name your top five favourites I would really REALLY appreciate it!  Your input helps me out tonnes!

Real Ladies Fart
Real Ladies Fuck
Real Ladies Burp/Belch
Real Ladies Cuss
Real Ladies Spit ??
Real Ladies Question Authority
Real Ladies Pick Wedgies
Real Ladies Say What They Think
Real Ladies Have One Night Stands
Real Ladies Drink Out of the Carton
Real Ladies Have Seconds
Real Ladies Aren't Afraid to Say No
Real Ladies Poop
Real Ladies Do It Themselves


Thanks so much to anyone and everyone that offers their two cents.

Ooo, sounds interesting.  These are my top 5:

Real Ladies Question Authority
Real Ladies Say What They Think
Real Ladies Have Seconds
Real Ladies Aren't Afraid to Say No
Real Ladies Do It Themselves

In my opinion, the others seem designed more for shock value than anything else (no offense!). While I do plenty of farting, fucking, burping, pooping, etc, I don't think those activities make me a "lady".. If it said Real Women... that would be different (but wouldn't go along with LadyFest). I suppose I think of a "lady" as a well-mannered woman, and while everyone does most of the things you've listed, it would be ill-mannered to do, or discuss, some of them in public, regardless of gender.

I'm probably missing the point, but, what can I say. I'm an old lady trapped in a 27 year old's body  Cheesy

I personally like these 5:
Real Ladies Have Seconds
Real Ladies Cuss
Real Ladies Say What They Think
Real Ladies Do It Themselves
Real Ladies Pick Wedgies

Real Ladies Spit <--this one...ha...it may just be me and this could be totally gutterminded but seems to be in reference to spit versus swallow if ya catch my drift...

I do agree with L-train that the poop/fart ones seem a bit too shock. that made no sense but ya know.
If I understand where you are going with this...most of those terms/habits are things that guys do but not ladies. Why not something like "Real Ladies: barbeque, drive stick, mow the lawn, drive a tractor, change their own oil, wear a toolbelt, own a table saw *or some other manly tool*, drive trucks, etc etc" just some ideas for ya!

If you have your heart set on the "fart" one...

How about, "Real ladies say 'Excuse me!' on the front of a shirt and
 ...after they fart on the back.

Kind of makes it a little bit less shocking, I think...and real ladies do, after all, have good manners...
