Talk to You Later

"Why is it that we can have an all girls school,

but when we have all boys schools, 

it's sexist?"

Except,

No one's said that.

And if they have,

There are people who find all girls schools sexist.

Talk to me when you have rights taken away from you because of your gender.

"Why can we have black groups,

but when we have all white groups,

it's racist?"

But,

Why do you need an all white group?

To show off how proud you are,

To not be oppressed.

Talk to me when you have rights taken away from you because of your race.

"Why do we have gay pride

and not straight pride?"

Why do you need pride

for something so

mundane,

something so

normal.

Talk to me when you have rights taken away from you because of your sexuality.
