In a similar vein, on "Love Drought" she pouts "Tell me, what did I do wrong?...Am I not thirsty enough?...Spend my life in the dark for the sake of you and me...Them old bitches so whack, I 'm so tough, what 's up?" The part of me that goes to Bey to feel unaffectedly invincible can 't deal with all of this pleading, playing the comparison game and what I call "auditioning" (i.e. selling yourself; if your value isn 't immediately seen and always respected, you probably shouldn 't be around), but I digress.

When the entire town doesn't exactly accept you that causes a feeling of seclusion and hatred of those around you. Abigail's view of the people around her is negative so she has no regrets when it comes to making them pay for how they had treated her. The way that people are treated causes them to make their own assumptions about the world and how they want to interact with those in
This relates back to the fact that she was dehumanized by society’s warped vision of gender roles. It’s also a good metaphor for her general character and its representation.
