Please stop getting mad at me for not being able to watch a show about sex crimes anymore.
Sincerely, I know that you think what happened to me is a joke.
Dear High School PE Teacher,
I forgive you but it will never make it acceptable for what you let slide under the rug. You HAD to break me out of a gym locker because girls in my class put me there. But you never had to say, "There's nothing we can do about it because there was no video evidence." Me being pad locked in a tiny locker should have been enough evidence. Not to mention the amount of blood and bruising that was left on my naked body after being raped by the girls who put me in there.

Please stop feeding your cat vegan cat food. It's a carnivore, and you're slowly killing it.
Sincerely, If you want a vegan pet, get a hamster.
Please don't ever treat my sister how you treated me. Don't call her a brat or anything like you called me. Don't lie to her and don't make all of her emotions about you. Don't hurt her.
Sincerely, your child, the one you kicked out.
Dear Physics Professor,
Just because I talked back to you because you were wrong doesn't mean you have to fail me.
Sincerely, your student who topped all your exams.
Dear friend's parents,
Please stop using me as a comparison for your own daughters. You make me feel ashamed of my hard work and success. You children are so talented and smart, but feel like they will never meet your standards, and then resent me for meeting them. I can't draw or sing or socialize like my friends. I'm not as dedicated as them - I was just luck to get a good brain.
Sincerely, don't shame your kids because other people do well
Please don't freak out when I tell you this. You are the reason my eating disorder was fueled. Your brief period of body hatred and sending me "thinspo" led me down a long path. Now I have 1-2 appointments a week. But of course I can never tell you that you fueled me to diet...
Sincerely, a friend stuck in therapy and relapsing
Dear unsupportive family and friends,
Please stfu about how unlikely it is I can make a career out of music.
Sincerely, the girl who's song now has over 1000 plays on Spotify from 25 different countries
I'm sorry I missed your call. I'm sorry I haven't called you back. I know these weekly calls are your way of being involved in my life from three hours away. But I don't want to do it anymore, and I don't know how to tell you without hurting you. You're only my dad when you want to be, and you never seem to remember the times you disappeared in the past. You seem to be happy with your new family, so please just let me go. I was there for you all those years because no one else was, but you don't need me anymore and I need time to heal.
Sincerely, your daughter
yes, I know you all have children. Yes, I'm also positive I never want any. Do you want to amputate your left foot?
Sincerely, may be a quite harsh comparison, but stop nagging me!
I know that my cousin is here at the same college, and that he has all these issues. But I have my own life, I'm not spending all my freetime to be waiting on him hand and foot.
Sincerely, Not a slave
Dear Lovely person reading,
Please You're not ugly, you're the opposite.. If I could hug you and tell you tomorrow would be ok, I would because I'd be there for you..
Sincerely, a caring person
Dear Vegan who clearly tells any soul that doesn't ask,
You are not morally superior to me because of the lack of meat/dairy you eat. Stop shoving your opinion down my throat. I don't believe in animal cruelty just because I drink dairy.
Sincerely, eat a chicken nugget
Dear Well-meaning Americans,
Please cut it out with the "white people can't experience racism" stuff. You think an Irish traveler can't experience racism? Or a Polish person? Similarly racism is not only something white people do; do you think there's no racism at all between, for example, Asian people and black people? You want to redefine racism so that institutional racism is the only kind that matters, as if a racially aggravated assault hurts less or is less awful depending on the colour of the fist throwing the punches, and that's ridiculous. The American experience of racism is not the only one.
Sincerely, Tired of Americenstrism
