To The Boys Who Don't Believe in Feminism

To the boys who don't believe in feminism

I want to take you on a journey

So close your eyes

And I'll open them for you

 

First take the weight from between your legs

Double it and place it on your chest

Now show those off, it makes you desirable

Alright you sluts cover it up no one wants to see everything, keep some mystery

 

To the boys who don't believe in feminism

 

Did you ever play trouble as a kid?

Do you remember the feeling of getting into that safe space?

In real life there is no safe space

In real life people can break into your house and rape you and murder you

And that's twice more likely to happen to a women

 

To the boys who don't believe in feminism

 

Did you ever get assignments when you were little to paint a picture that was supposed to look like something?

It wasn't draw whatever you want

And at the end they all looked basically the same

 

That's what we're told to do everyday of our lives

To make our faces those models

Caked in paint

And if we do we're basic

If we don't we're too ugly to save

 

To the boys who don't believe in feminism

 

Imagine getting different forms of the same toy and not wanting any of them but that's all you're  allowed to play with

Barbies, porcelain, big ones, little ones, ones that fit in your pocket

I never liked dolls but my room is covered in them

I'm surrounded by what I was supposed to be but what I couldn't be

 

To the boys who don't believe in feminism

 

Imagine not being able to walk alone ever without fear

Imagine being shoved into outfits you hate by society

Imagine them blaming you when your raped

 

You were dressed like a skank you deserved it

You slept with him before

It's his right as your boyfriend

You shouldn't have gone by yourself

You shouldn't have drank so much

You didn't fight hard enough

You didn't scream loud enough

You orgasamed so you liked it

You were asking for it

 

To the boys who don't believe in feminism

Fuck off or get educated

 

To the girls who don't believe in feminism

Why?
