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.
Dear Baby,
Please EXIT! I can't take being THIS pregnant anymore!
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.
Dear crush,
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.
Dear Friend,
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...
Dear friends and family,
I'm sorry that I can't tell you what my future is going to be. I'm still figuring myself out and I can only ask for support from you.
Dear Physics Professor,
Just because I talked back to you because you were wrong doesn't mean you have to fail me.
Dear Angry person on the phone,
Mmhmm. Mmm. Yeah. Excuse m- Yup. Mmhm. Hmm.
Dear co-workers,
yes, I know you all have children. Yes, I'm also positive I never want any. Do you want to amputate your left foot?
Dear Cat,
Please stop wanting attention when I am sleeping. Or using the restroom. Or eating. I give you attention when I am not doing any of these things and you reject me. Why?
Dear A fellow gamer,
I don't play games all day. I sit on my ass and do homework, so I can try and get a job in one of the worst cities to do so. I work hard to make sure it's not all in vain. Then, when the crushing reality of life comes knocking and trying to puch me over the edge of insanity, i turn on my gaming console of choice and watch those inhibitions wash away as I enter into a world that is so much better than my own.
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..
Dear unsupportive family and friends,
Please stfu about how unlikely it is I can make a career out of music.
Dear best friend,
Please stop interpreting me hanging out with your boyfriend as a way to intentionally hurt you.
Dear friend who cheated on that test,
Please don't ask me to make you feel better. I had to spend my weekend studying and struggled with the test the whole period while you checked your study guide. I did my own work and you made a bad decision.
