Favorite Quote:
Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, you're a mile away, and you have their shoes.

To all the boys and men out there:
Us girls are not just toys to play with or prizes to win.
We are not things to boast about or to.
We do not exist for your entertainment or pleasure.
We are people. We matter, just like you. We have our own thoughts and emotions and aspirations, so please don't go talking about and with us like we aren't.
Guys, treat us like something more than toys.
And to all you girls,
Don't act like toys.

The author's comments:
I think this piece speaks for itself. We keep thinking that women right now are facing more freedom than they ever have before, and this might be true political wise, but watch any romantic comedy and what are they good for? What is their potential value in?
Just think about that.
Girls are good for more than what pop culture says we are.
