Slut

I am a slut

And I refuse to believe that

Women have a right to their bodies

I realize this may be a shock, but

Saying “Don’t Get Raped,” rather than “Don’t Rape”

Is a lie, and

Because you said “yes” to him, means you say “yes” to all men.

In 30 years, society will believe that

A man’s ego

Is more important than

The word “no”

I tell you this:

Teen girls’ safety matters

But this will not be true in my era

This is a male supremacist society

Experts tell me

Men will be superior to women

I do not conclude that

Women will be powerful

In the future

There will be no equality

No longer will it be said that

Women deserve to be heard

It will be evident that

It’s the victims fault for sexual assault

It is foolish to presume that

Your voice matters.

And all of this will come true, unless we reverse it.
