Dear fellow authors,
If you're writing about a place, a hobby, or anything else that you don't know much about, for the love of God do your research!
Sincerely, an author tired of reading books that make ridiculous mistakes.
Yes, I'm asexual. Yes, I have children. No, I've never had sex. No, divine intervention was not necessary.
Sincerely, have you never heard of IVF?
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 "but I've seen you eat!",
You don't see me meticulously planning out every meal. You don't see me throwing up every bit of it when I go the tiniest bit over my limit. You don't see the endless anxiety when I go a single calorie over what I intended. You don't know that the only reason that I'm eating is that I haven't for the past three days.
Sincerely, eating disorders don't look like they do in movies.
Dear Mr. Trump,
It is possible to kill two birds with one stone. Please take that mutated beaver pelt off your head and insert it firmly in your mouth.
Thank you for filling me with deep, powerful emotions that I cannot convey in a way meaningful to others. The pain is unbearable and crushing, but thankfully no one will ever see it on my blank, robotic face. Thank you for making me appear normal enough that no one would consider that I'm not being arrogant, rude, selfish, or condescending - I actually don't understand your facial expressions and DO have to ask you what you mean by that, and, yes, I actually DID take that literally becuase I take everything literally. When you say cruel things to me out of frustration or anger I instinctively believe them.
Sincerely, the struggling adult who still goes to great lengths to hide his self-harming scars
Dear best friend,
Please stop talking down to your boyfriend just because you've got your sh*t together more than he does. It's not in a constructive way, it's not nice, and it's driving him away. You have to build someone up if you want them to grow!
Sincerely, someone who loves you both
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.
Dear Mom & Dad,
I know I don't say this often but I love you both very much and I appreciate everything you have done for me. I know you guys won't read this letter but I felt like writing it and tell it to someone. I on my way to you and see you in a few hours.
Sincerely, your daughter
Please understand that we live in the 21st century and that I am not expected to cook for my older brother in my spare time anymore.
Sincerely, your slightly annoyed granddaughter
Dear Professor who said my editing was "not fitting my intelligence" and "amazingly lazy",
Please remember academic accommodations told you I'm SEVERELY dyslexic and that intelligence and being able to spot when auto-correct chose the wrong homophone are two different things.
Sincerely, This message took me 50 minutes
If you're going to call a teacher sexist, and then turn around when I try to put in my two cents and say "Are you a guy? No? Then shut up." Then I'm going to say the only sexist person I see is you.
Sincerely, "Feminist Nazi" by your standards
Dear SJW's GSA and LGTB,
I'm trying to be an ally, don't discriminate against me because I'm a white male who happens to be cis and identifies as straight.
Sincerely, the loving boyfriend of a beautiful pre-op trans girl.
Please stop treating people with my color skin with disrespectful. Neither I nor the other students who look like me have ever disrespected you, yet you treat us with disdain. We know you're a racist.
Sincerely, yes it's still racism even though I'm Caucasian
