Because I’m Me

2009

Just because I’m a girl
it doesn’t mean I’m weak

Just because I’m white
it doesn’t mean I have rich parents who buy me everything

Just because I’m naturally blonde
it doesn’t mean I’m stupid

Just because I’m young
it doesn’t mean I can’t think for myself

Just because I like girls
it doesn’t mean I’m a sl*t

Just because I don’t always say how I feel
it doesn’t mean your stereotypes don’t hurt me

Should it matter
my gender?
my race?
my hair color?
my age?
my sexuality?

Shouldn’t who I am or how I feel have a say?

Just because this is all I can be

Just because I’m me…
