“You can do anything you want with your life.”
Of course I can.
It never occurred to me that there was any other option.
“You can’t sit with us, you’re a girl.”
Of course I’m a girl, what does that have to do with anything?
You better shut your mouth before I make you.
“I don’t want her on our team, she plays like a girl.”
Of course I play like a girl, I am one.
I run faster and throw better than half of your pathetic team.
“Good thing she has a brain, she sure as hell won’t get anywhere with THOSE looks.”
Of course I have a brain, I’m human aren’t I?”
I want to see you cringe at the look I’m about to give you.
“A scientist? No one will take you seriously sweetheart.”
Of course they won’t if I give up.
Has everyone forgotten Marie Curie?
“Now come here and give me a kiss.”
Of course I will, I’m too scared to defy.
I can’t wait for the day my body will be my own.
