I write because of society
Because my clothing says more about my consent, than my mouth does
Because you're not as pretty if you're a plus
Because society tells me not to get raped
But doesn't tell the men who did it not to rape me
Because a rape whistle shouldn't be on my keys
Because I have to tell every guy that "I have a boyfriend"
Because a man respects a man more than he respects my voice
Because girls are taught "how to please a man"
Because my body is not my own
Because I am sexually objectified because I am wearing shorts
Because schools tell girls that they are the distraction
But doesn't tell the boys that they shouldn't be distracted
I am not an object.
I am not here to please you.
I write because society says everyone is created equal
until the pay checks come and politics get brought up.
I write because all MEN are created equal,
and it's time to change that.
