Not sure when it happened, or how it happened, but at some point in the history of this country, two words in the English language became synonyms. People began using the two terms interchangeably as if they meant the same thing. But, there is a problem with that. The two expressions don’t in fact mean the same thing. To be clear, I’m referring to the words “hoe” and “freak.”
Hoe and freak have completely different definitions. Hoe refers to a person that practices little to no discretion when it comes to who he lets have access to his fun zones. While most people not buried six feet under have moments when their sexual desires may boil up, people that fit in the hoe category tend to let their desires boil over into action with relative strangers. They have an itch and they will grab whatever looks remotely satisfying to scratch it. The term is not exclusive to just women or just men. It can be used to describe heterosexuals, homosexuals, bisexuals, and everything in between. And despite what folks may think, hoe is not necessarily a permanent label. Individuals can transition out of “hoeism.”
Now let’s talk about the word freak. Freak refers to an individual that is willing to go past the traditional boundaries of sex. She will take things outside of the bedroom, try a plethora of positions, and is willing to do a variety of things beyond the norm to please her mate. But unlike a hoe, a freak will let her sexual ambitions go, only with her partner. She treats her fun zones like the super VIP sections of a club, and not like general admissions section of a football stadium. And unlike a hoe, usually once a freak, always a freak. However, similar to a hoe, a freak can be applied to a person regardless sexual orientation, gender, or sexuality.
So you may be asking yourself, what’s this all about? Why even have this conversation? What’s the point of this post? Well if you’re asking any one of these questions, let me answer them all right now. I wrote this because I’m tired of people making assumptions that all freaks are hoes. That simply isn’t true. To be honest, just because you’re a hoe doesn’t mean you have all the inklings and abilities of a freak. Of course people can be both a hoe and a freak, but that’s not necessarily a given.
