forgive me for being pretty,
because i'm always going to be a slut.

forgive me for being ugly,
well, no matter how little i wear,
i'll never be beautiful enough.

forgive me for being skinny,
because i'm fragile and weak.

forgive me for being fat,
well, no matter what i've been through
i'll never be able to speak.

forgive me for being strong,
because no one will even let me fight.

forgive me for being weak,
well, no matter how much you yell at me,
i'll never be right.

forgive me for loving a man,
because i'll never be under attack.

forgive me for loving a woman,
well, no matter what i love,
i'll never be loved back.

forgive me for being educated,
because i can't have power.

forgive me for being ignorant,
because i was giving birth during school hours.

forgive me for being a feminist,
because i have no right to speak.

forgive me for fighting for equality,
because my voice is dainty and weak.

forgive me for being a daughter,
because i don't deserve an education.

forgive me for being a mother,
because i wanted to have children.

forgive me for being a woman,
because that's all i've ever been.

forgive me for being a human,
because that's all i want to be.
i don't think that all men are against women. i'm not that type of feminist, that's not feminism at all. i believe in equality, because many Americans are ignorant about what's going on in the world around them. Well, guess what. If you don't believe in words, I'll give you numbers.

51 million primary school aged children aren't in school. 31 million of those people are girls. 774 million adults, people fifteen years or older, are illiterate. Two thirds of that 774 are women.

Before you face the truth, you have to know the truth. WE ARE NOT EQUAL HERE. IF WE WERE, NEITHER GENDER, OR ANY GENDER IN BETWEEN WOULD FEEL OPPRESSED. Feminism is not burning bras. Feminism is not cutting off penises. Feminism is equality, because we don't have it. Feminism is education for everyone. Feminism is not having to be trapped in a house cooking all day. Feminism is women being able to have the same rights as men. we don't. we don't. any woman who is reading this right now has had an education. but so many others don't even know what that is.


speak for those who are given no right to speak.

Feminists aren't men haters. Women who hate men for being born a different sex are sexist. Thank you so much for expressing that.
