OKAY SO ALMOST 2 MONTHS AGO OUR ENGLISH TEACHER FORCED US TO ENTER A POETRY CONTEST AND I WAS ABOUT TO ENTER A POEM WHEN IT TRIED TO FORCE ME TO GIVE IT A TITLE SO IN A FIT OF RAGE I WROTE A NEW POEM COMPLAINING ABOUT THE TITLE REQUIREMENT
AND TODAY I WENT TO CHECK MY EMAIL AND I??????
YOU ARE LITERALLY PUBLISHING AN INSULT TO YOUR OWN RULES BUT OKAY I GUESS IF GETTING TALKED DOWN TO TURNS YOU ON SOMEHOW AND I GET PUBLISHED I’VE GOT NO COMPLAINTS HERE?
I’m really tired of going to work and seeing parents forcing their little boys to read books about cars and sports and forcing their little girls to read books about gossip and and clothes.
Today a little boy picked up a book he wanted to read from his summer reading list because it sounded really interesting to him. When I got him the book, turns out the protagonist was a female. The grandma instantly said oh you don’t want that, that’s a girl book and then by the look on his face you could see that he thought he did something wrong.
Why is a book about a girl a girl book? I just, I don’t get it.
