Dear countries letting Syrian refugees in,
Please, PLEASE find some way to make sure they genuinely need help and aren't just coming to cause trouble. Since refugees arrived in my town, the amount of rapes, thefts, murders and other sorts of crimes has shot up.
Sincerely, a girl who no longer feels safe in her own home.
Dear teacher out on maternity leave,
Please don't come back.
Sincerely, Your long-term substitute who wants a full-time teaching job
You've told me repeatedly that my baby will have disabilities and advised me to have an abortion. Do you realize that what you're recommending is essentially eugenics?
Sincerely, a woman who loves her unborn baby whether s/he has disabilities or not.
Please take off the clown paint already. It looks retarded. Grow up already.
Please remember that sometimes, there is no absolute truth. Many moral, economic, or other issues have many many ways to solve the problem. Sometimes however, there is absolute truth. Such as whether or not God exixts, or natural laws.
Sincerely, I found Absolute Truth
Please eat a snickers. You get really forceful and arrogant about your worldviews and personal choices when you're hungry. If you really want to win people over to your side then try being persuasive and convincing, not insulting and hostile.
Sincerely, Ate at McD's just to spite you
I'm glad your new husband shares your love of Egyptology, and I don't mind your having an Ancient Egypt-themed reception, but WHY did you have to have it in a marquee on the coldest, rainiest day of the year so far for it?
Sincerely, your freezing, drenched sister whose dress will become see-through if it keeps raining
Dear couple at the store,
Please don't judge me for running into things while on my phone. My best friend is in Germany and the time zones only let us talk now.
Sincerely, texting can actually be important
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
Please stop stereotyping. It is very offensive to find that the stereotype of a "white girl" is ditzy trend-seeking idiot. Why do we look at the color of someone's skin and automatically make judgments right away? I shouldn't say "we", because it's not everyone, but stereotyping very popular. Always has been. Close your eyes if you have to, but make your own judgments after you've met and know a person.
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
Dear high school health teacher,
Please consider taking one day out of the "horrors of gonorrhea" unit to explain the words transgendered, transexual, the difference between them, and how it's not that weird a thing anymore, so the other students stop asking me personal details about my brother's life. I'm seventeen and sick of doing your job.
Sincerely, not the only student with a trans relative, just the only one who knows about it.
Please take a hint. You're the most amazing girl I know. We were Eric and Ariel for the school musical, the Beast and Belle the next year, and Romeo and Juliet this year. I've known you since we were 5. Words cannot describe you. Can't you see the way I look at you every day? All the other relationships in the world wouldn't compare to ours.
Sincerely, Kate, if you're reading this, you know who it is.
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
