We hide behind fifty layers of makeup and short skirts

because in this society to be beautiful is to show more skin the personality

Where cat calls are complements and our bodies are objects

Where boys are more interested in getting between our legs

then what is coming from between our lips

Where its okay for  beauty is gauged on a scale from one to ten

We care more about asthedics and matiral possions

then our own self respect
