Don't call me sweetie
I'm not your grandchild
I'm an informed student

Don't call me honey
I'm not an old needy person
I'm a determined young women

Don't patronize me
Hear me out
I have a valid point, now and always

Don't talk down to me
I know more then you'd think
I've lived 13 mature years

Don't judge me
Because I'm a teenager
Or because I'm not up to your standards

Don't objectify me
I'm not for your amusement
I'm a smart teenage girl

I'm capable, and I know what I'm doing
If I'm here, it's with a reason
I've been trained, prepped and I've lived life

Now don't you dare
Do anything
But treat me with respect
