Dear Media,

This body that I am in belongs to me.
Do not touch it without my consent.
I can cloth it whichever way I want, but do not stereotype me for how I dress.
My body is fine the way it is, do not tell me to change it.
Female gaming characters are as strong as the males, give me dignity and cover my body properly.
Pay me for my effort, not my gender.
Stop advertising me as a trophy, I have a brain, just like you do.
Use yours, and come to the realization that no, I will not make you a sandwich.

Sincerely,

A Feminist


The author's comments:
For a long time I refused to be addressed as a feminist, I thought feminists were overly obnoxious people who were over exaggerating. But lately, I have been picking out all these things that place me apart from boys, and some of these things should not be that way. That's when I became a feminist, when I found things that I did not think were fair, and wanted to change them. This inspired my writing, equality.
