Dear Boyfriend,
I don't care that you "can't feel as much" with the condom on. You're wearing it or we're not having sex.
Dear "no excuse for pregnancy",
WHY ARENT YOU TELLING THIS TO THE BOYS TOO HUH? DID YOU EVER TAKE SEX ED? It takes mommy AND daddy parts to impregnate someone, and not all forms of birth control work all the time, even when used correctly. So go eff yourself
Dear Somewhat Prejudiced Mother,
When we were living in the deep south, you let me go visit the gay couple across the street to see if their dog could come out to play. When you found out that one of my friends is transgender, you just asked me in private what pronouns to use, and have said nothing about it to him or anyone else. When I brought home friends who practice religions you were raised to hate, you made them feel welcome, and you said nothing when I brought home a boy with a different skin color, even though you thought I was planning to ask him out. Thank you for teaching me about tolerance.
Dear "pro-life" people,
Women have the right to bodily autonomy. No one should be forced to use their body to support others; individuals aren't forced to donate blood or organs, no matter how desperately their donations may be needed. That's because the right to control the use of one's body is one of the most fundamental of rights, and you're not taking that away from us.
Dear Christians who think homosexuality is wrong,
I don't know why I'm gay. It might be genetics, or unconscious psychology, or the will of God, but it certainly wasn't my decision. You say your God values kindness and forgiveness; if that's true, why would he punish my love, in which I had no choice, and reward you for being judgemental and hateful? Yes, you're allowed to not like homosexuality. But I'm allowed to think you're mistaken.
Dear Cancer,
Unhand my mother, you bitch.
Dear victim-blamers of the celebrity photo leak,
Please tell me, should I not own anything valuable if I don't want to get robbed? Not own a house if I don't want someone to burn it down? I can always be safer, but my private life and property should be respected. Focus on punishing the criminals who broke the law, not the busy professionals probably just trying to maintain a sexual relationship with their partners while they were apart (as is their right). They're people like us, and no one deserves this horror.
Dear guy who just attempted to rape me ,
Just because I'm a 5 foot nothing, teenage girl doesn't mean I can't take care of myself .
Dear World,
Three years ago, I had surgery on both legs to attempt to correct plantar fasciitis. Yesterday, I ran a half marathon.
Dear Islamic girls on campus,
Your hijabs are very pretty.
Dear boys,
Thanks for saying I look better without makeup. Now, if I have permission, I'm going to continue to wear a lot of makeup because I like it. Thanks.
Dear people saying skinny is ugly,
Please remember, weight issues go both ways.
Dear people who get mad if I say black as opposed to African American,
I know I'm not black, but I find this to be more correct. These people are not from Africa anymore, they have been living here for generations and I think that black would be more correct.
Dear society,
Why does saying "proud to be black"is ok, but saying "proud to be white" is racism?
Dear Sexist Jerks,
No my 'daddy' didn't buy me my Porsche, my job in neurology did.
