Dear Brock Turner's Dad,
Please understand that twenty minutes of action is a lot. In twenty minutes, you can murder people, bomb a city, or do other such horrible things.
Sincerely, Please don't trivialize rape.
Please consider the life the child will be born into as well. Or are you just "pro-birth"?
Sincerely, birth is just the beginning
Dear people who don't like feminism,
Like it or not, finding out I'm a feminist is not an opportunity for you to call me a "feminazi". My great grandparents were murdered during the Holocaust after their home was burned down. I am a proud, 3rd generation Jewish American feminist and comparing me to the group that murdered my family and millions of others is completely unacceptable. You say feminists are crazy and turn around and compare us to fucking Nazis... check yourself
Sincerely, a Jewish woman who is tired of this
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
Dear friend's parents,
Please stop using me as a comparison for your own daughters. You make me feel ashamed of my hard work and success. You children are so talented and smart, but feel like they will never meet your standards, and then resent me for meeting them. I can't draw or sing or socialize like my friends. I'm not as dedicated as them - I was just luck to get a good brain.
Sincerely, don't shame your kids because other people do well
Dear person who run into things while on her phone,
I don't care if your friend calls you from Germany or Uganda, just stay still on the side so I can walk past you instead of zigzagging all over the place.
Sincerely, the person behind you slowly going crazy.
If you don't like a result, try voting against it next time instead of thinking you won't make a difference. If you did vote, you just have to accept that democracy means up to 50% of the population might be disappointed. You can't please everybody all the time. Its not the end of the world.
Sincerely, be glad you get to vote
Please know that your reassuring me that you love me in spite of everything picked up my broken day. Thank you.
Sincerely, your appreciative girlfriend
Dear People who think I should play basketball,
Please stop telling me I should play basketball. I've hated the sport since I stepped onto a baseball field. No, I will not play volleyball either.
Sincerely, tall girl who made the right decision
I'm sorry I missed your call. I'm sorry I haven't called you back. I know these weekly calls are your way of being involved in my life from three hours away. But I don't want to do it anymore, and I don't know how to tell you without hurting you. You're only my dad when you want to be, and you never seem to remember the times you disappeared in the past. You seem to be happy with your new family, so please just let me go. I was there for you all those years because no one else was, but you don't need me anymore and I need time to heal.
Sincerely, your daughter
Dear English Teacher,
Thank you for understanding my weird poetry when noone else did.
Sincerely, alone and afraid.
Since my two of my closest friends are dating now, can you get all the other couples I'm sure will get together at some point, you know, get together sooner? I'd like to place some bets.
Sincerely, at least then I'll be a rich third wheel
Yes, you did leave the carpark within the allotted time. However, your piss-poor parking blocked another space, as as per the car park rules (yes there is such a thing), that is an offence.
Sincerely, your parking warden.
Dear One Size Fits All,
You definitely don't fit me.
Sincerely, plus size woman bored of disappointment.
Please stop making me do shit I don't want to do. I know you're going through a mid-life crisis and think that we need to renovate every square inch of the house, but I really don't see a reason to waste my time doing it.
Sincerely, I have homework anyways.
