"Dear girl, you will be believed."
Often times, we women, start to rise
Then certain people devise a plan to disenfranchise
Whether it’s our bodies or rights
entice us with movements
unite us through persecution
make it seem like it’s alright
Dear girl, open your eyes
we have come so far, it’s easy to resign
we’ve got equality
but public policy shows the contrary honestly
and it’s mostly seen as a victimless crime
no surprise, since we perpetuate r*** culture
separate locker room talk and that one audio tape
i get 78 cents to a man’s dollar
while black and latino women get even smaller
What should every girl know?
You are not some puppet in a puppet show
f*** the status quo and the photoshopped photos
expose the double standards, the hypocrisy, the hate
it is never too late
This is the moment of girls taking the reigns
It is Times Up
It is Me Too
It is everyone from me to you
Who has spoken or stayed silent but strong
It is Emma Gonzalez and Lena Waithe
From dodging bullets and dodging hate
Christine Blasey Ford and every survivor that speaks
only to be met with intimidation, investigation, and disbelief
Dear girl, You will be believed
If not by senate floors and investigators
We will hear you
We will see you
We will stand with you
Dear girl, You are heard from the survivor 3,000 miles away or the one next door
You are heard
Justice will not always prevail
But we will continue to fight tooth and nail
You are heard
So that our sisters and daughters will never be asked rather harassed
whether they wanted it, regretted, or just forgot
Believe me, no one forgot
Dear Everyone, This moment is a movement
for every girl to reclaiming her place, win every race
For everyone out there, listen in
The system is in demolition, grab ahold of your voice
It’s time to make a choice
to believe survivors
to pay us all the same
to give women of color equal access and opportunity
to care about the safety of trans girls every day
make the choice to change the climate
make the choice to not be silent
this is not the day of the girl
this is the future of girls"

So many people seem to think feminisim is hating men and boys and wanting to shove them aside when feminisim is wanting just to be equal, not trying to push males down or trying to be " the dominant sex" not trying to "overthrow the world" just to be peaceful and have the same rights. To be believed and to support other girls and women. Every person's story should be heard, and we believe that anyone and everyone, not just females who are victims of hate crimes or assault should have justice, peacefully, should have the same rights and should be able to walk down their streets without being disturbed
This is my opinion, read if you want.
I have a voice.
Therefore I have opinions
I don't care if everyone is against me.
We are not equal
Not at all.
Races don't matter
They're sexual identity doesn't matter
We are human
We all have a voice
Even if we can't use it
We are all allowed to say our mind.
For some you can yell and you won't be heard
We need to be heard
We have families too
We have bills.
300$ won't cover 4 people.
It will get you food and water
But you still have to save up for health care
Equality matters not just to women but to people everywhere
A trans gender is being bullied because she's different
A black person got arrested because they were black
A bi person was shot for being gay
A group of coloured people were being beaten for they're race
People are dying at our feet
They are different
So are we
We are all different in our appearance
Weather were twins triplets or quadruplets
We are different.
We shouldn't be treated differently
If we were all treated differently they would have to have over 7 billion ways
To disiplin us.
Don't just listen to what the voice has to say
Feel what it has to say
If you don't keep replaying it
Every voice has a story.
Every story has a point where you don't understand.
Keep reading and you will.
We need to keep reading
Reading about equality and gun control for the places they are legal
Reading for less murders and suicides
A perfect book has a happy ending.
The world is an open book
We are the characters.
All over horrible things are happening.
We want to stop reading
But there are good characters who try to change
This book might end short and have a bad ending
Or if we turn things around, we could have a happy ending.
We all fight for something in this book, weather it be equality or gay pride
Maybe your fighting against climate change or your leaders choices.
If you are reading this, fight for a good thing not a bad one.
If you are reading this now thank you❤️❤️
oouu, um have any of us ever considered the possibility of just like not caring so much about gender? I mean clearly it’s on the top of everyone’s priority lists so we have to clear that up before any major worldwide problem right? Or maybe global warming and climate change are a little more important because, if we continue to wreck our planet, there will be no girl/guys men/women to ague about:)
“Christine Blakey Ford met with intimidation and investigation” so you’re telling me that when a woman accuses a man of RAPING her they’re just not supposed to investigation and take her word as the only truth.
Blasi Ford was a liar her stories had a lot of inconsistencies in them and a few weeks after the trial all the women who accused Brett Cavanaugh of raping her said they made the whole story up for attention and you should only believe survivors when they can prove their survivors
Do you know why Dr. Ford's case wasn't believed? Because there wasn't evidence. All her "witnesses" weren't there. Her ex wrote about the lies she spouted about lie detectors. INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY.
Errrr..... what rights have women lost in America since Trump became elected?
I mean, I know you're still butt-hurt about your precious Hillary's abysmal loss and Kavanaugh's confirmation,
BUT WHAT RIGHT'S HAVE WOMEN LOST??
No because all those bad things that happen to girls are true and only you idiots are complaining in the comment section with your pathetic arguments we are not misandrists who would burn our boy band posters and our ken dolls some of us have really kind and supportive boyfriends fathers husbands sons and brothers who won't say these horrible things and they are understanding and are not in denial unlike you pathetic idiots in the comment section
Equal pay act. Accusations are always met with investigation. You live in the country where white women in particular are the most privileged. Sit down and shut up. It’s like me bitching that Oprah makes more then me because she’s a black woman. She earned it, I have to earn my keep just like everyone else regardless of race religion gender. Buzzed is the garbage bin of the internet
