we know we are beautiful
there is no need to yell it at us
your “compliments” on the street do not flatter us
"what are you doing later baby?"
nothing with you, thats for sure.
have you no self-control?
we deserve more than a whistle from a window
or a wink from a gas station worker.
we are not cats, please do not call us “kitten” or “baby”
we do not appreciate your sexual assault on the street.
do not eye me up, i am not an object; a sculpture.
i am a piece of art though,
just not for your viewing.
keep your hands to yourself, do not touch me
keep your eyes and hands off of me.
keep your compliments to yourself.
we know we are beautiful.
do not feel obliged to except those compliments
we don’t need them to validate our self-worth
if anything you should be offended
men who call you from the street deserve no gratification for their actions
not IF a man called you from the street but WHEN,
feel the need to act
call him names
shoot the finger
or use choice words
HE deserves them.
you DON’T deserve these words,
no matter what clothes you have on.
showing skin is not a justifiable reason for this.
it may make him think twice next time he tries to victimize a girl.
dont be offended if you get called a bitch,take it as a compliment.
most men cant handle a strong woman anyway.
we are to be feared, revered, respected, and honored.
not lured, belittled, or obtained.
stand up for yourself.
being submissive is overrated.
wear red lipstick to show you mean business. or don’t! its up to you!
the patriarchy does not determine your decisions, you do.
but most importantly,
