Sex Toy

 

You can still see my butt.

You can still see my boobs.

You can still see me in these clothes.

But why must I wear them?

Why must I cover the parts I was born with?

Because the people will look at me.

They will think of things they want to do to me.

But why?

Why do you see the body that way.

I should be able to show my body

not because it is beautiful but because it is natural.

And you should not sexualize it.

You should realize that the body is a body.

You should realize that I am not here for you're enjoyment.

You should realize that I am not a sex toy.  

I am not here for you to look at.

I am here for myself and myself alone.

You should not tell me what you want to do to me.

You should not tell others.

You should know that the body is a body.

The body is a natural living thing

of which I must live in.

I am a person I have emotions.

The media says,

if you don’t want to be sexualized,

don’t wear those types of clothing.

But that makes no difference.

I wear this because it makes me feel beautiful.

And the problem is not my clothes

It’s the way you see my clothes.

The problem is not my body

It’s how you see my body.

I am not here for your enjoyment

I am not a sex toy.   

You see me and you see my skin.

You see my eyes.

You see me and you see my breasts.

You see my butt.

You see me and you see my thin waist.

You see my long legs

You see me and you see everything but me!

I am not a sex toy.

You need to learn.

The body is natural.

It’s suppose to look that way.

It’s suppose to support you.

You are suppose to live in it.

And so am I.

You love and live in your body.

I will love and live in mine.

We will not be sex toys.   

But if you wish to love my body as well,

Love my soul first, then look at my face.

Because then I am no longer a sex toy.
