Just because I was a tomboy as a child doesn't mean I'm transgender. So for the love of God stop introducing me as your "transgender child"! Stop making me pretend to be something I'm not so you can show how "tolerant" and "non-judgmental" you are.
Sincerely, your disgusted daughter.
Listening to music that makes light of violence and murder helps me cope with the bruises covering my body. I know it's garbage music, but it gets me through the day.
Sincerely, my home is a war zone
Dear mom who says I do nothing,
Please realize that I am doing something: Trying to fight off the wish to die. And you're not helping.
Sincerely, if you want me dead so badly, why don't you just do it yourself?
Dear college kids,
Please be wary of crosswalks, I really don't want to hit you and pay my tuition as well as yours.
Sincerely, high school senior
There is no such thing as an "open relationship". A relationship is, by its definition, exclusive to two people. Attempting to bring more people into it will inevitably cause heartbreak. My parents had an "open relationship", and I watched my mother cry herself to sleep every night my father brought home another woman, and my father get drunk every time my mother spent the night with another man.
Sincerely, if you want to sleep around, why are you even in a relationship?
Please explain why it's considered gay to ask sexual questions to each other.
Sincerely, a confused boy
Please notice the amount of butterflies you put in my stomach when you talk to me
Sincerely, the girl who almost fainted when you touched my hand
It's not that I have no sympathy for people with cancer; I just can't see how you coming to work in your pyjamas is going to help them.
Sincerely, your baffled coworker
Please know that if you do someone's pay almost in half, you should definitely inform them.
Sincerely, suddenly can't make rent
Dear Political activist canvasing my neighborhood,
Please understand that while I care about the issues facing our community and would like to make my voice heard, walking into my home unanounced even though the door was unlocked is inapropriate. Proceeding to take offence after I ask you politely to leave is even more unacceptable, especially considering... that I have raging Diarrhea right now.
Sincerely, Get out.
Dear boy who picked on me in middle school,
Why didn't you tell me how you felt when we were 13?
Sincerely, I'm sorry, but now I'm 21 and have a boyfriend
Dear those who think rape isn't in the Ten Commandments,
One of the commandments is "thou shall not covet" this includes people bodies. We know that rape is never okay and that it's a terrible, terrible thing. So please stop saying that my God is not just. Please stop saying that my God is not a God of love and compassion. My God loves all.
Sincerely, a Christian
Dear Peeping Tom,
Please know I won't forget. And I'll be ready and waiting for the next time you're sneaking to my back windows. Now that i've scared you away, you'll probably not come around for a few weeks, or months or maybe not even til next year, but you'll come back when you think I've forgotten. You have no idea how long I'll remember you hand holding a camera to the corner of my bathroom window. I won't forget and I will be waiting to ruin your pathetic selfish little life.
Sincerely, the woman who isn't afraid of you
Dear lady who asked me what I'm wearing,
Sincerely, Jake From State Farm
