Dear mom of four,
Please do not hold your kids' heads under water in the pool. I didn't realize parents had to be told this.
Sincerely, the concerned lifeguard.
Dear makers of feminine products,
Just because you started make the boxes/products in pretty colors, doesn't mean I'm going to feel more comfortable about them and prance around showing them off to everyone I meet.
Sincerely, Realistic girl who's not going to pay more for "Totally Teen" *Sparkle Sparkle*
Dear Women in Society,
Please be happy with life. I know we're fighting for equality but it doesn't give us the right to turn into raving lunatics. Fight fair, fight kindly, and fight without degrading our gender. Men are not the enemy. Some men suck, some men rock. Fighting fire with fire just sets the whole arena ablaze. Stop blaming everyone for your insecurities about yourself and learn the truth: you have to love what you are.
Sincerely, a gal sending out truth bombs.
Dear women of this website,
If a guy compliments you, take it as a compliment and say thanks! No, he is not judging you or being creepy. I would understand if he was saying something inappropriate, but if he just says something like "You look nice today," he is just being a good guy!
Sincerely, girl who doesn't see what's wrong with compliments
They're watching you. Don't close your eyes. Don't blink. Blink and you're dead.
Sincerely, The Doctor
Dear Maths book author,
The quiz on your website led to a 3-hour conversation with my crush.
Sincerely, forever grateful geek girl
Please stop barking like someone's at the door
Sincerely, no one's at the door--I think my house is haunted
Dear 13 year old Daughter,
I am thankful that I got a daughter with great music taste. Clearly something went right, please never change.
Sincerely, Gladly watching you play along to T Rex
Just because I'm bisexual doesn't mean I want to f*ck everyone I meet.
Sincerely, bisexual and proud
Dear girl in my health class,
Just because I don't choose to drink and smoke doesn't mean I need to "get a life"
Sincerely, I'm pretty sure I can live my life the way I want to, thanks
Dear jock who thinks he's smarter than me,
I work as an academic tutor for the athletics department. Trust me, I know better.
Sincerely, grad student explaining basic algebra for the twenty-seventh time this week...
Please stop giving me a hard time because I politely butted in to your story about your dog with a question relevant to the lesson. I actually need to learn. No, I don't care about your dog's condition.
Sincerely, Wanting my money's worth from this school.
PMS is based on chemicals in your body. Not hindsight bias/social construct.
Sincerely, also a psych student
Dear Director of the Percy Jackson movie,
Please do not ruin Sea of Monsters. The Lightning Thief was bad enough.
Sincerely, an avid Percy Jackson reader
The fact that you made me make you a tea with not only whipped cream but marshmallows as well makes me feel both queasy and sick.
Sincerely, saying 'It's my version of a cappuccino' just makes it worse
