I'm Tired...

Commentary on objectification and double standards

I'm Tired...

to never be

a human

in someone's eyes...

to feel like

a thing

meant to be used

and played with...

to feel like

you are all you physically

want to be,

but then someone else

comes along

and ruins the happiness that gives you...

grabbing at you...

catcalling you...

asking for nothing more than sex–

not even a normal human conversation...

not allowing you to live your fucking life

the way you want to...

judging you when you do things your way

instead of the way predetermined for you...

I am a woman.

I am a human being.

I am your neighbor

–isn't one supposed to love thy neighbor?

–isn't one supposed to respect thy neighbor?

Weren't we taught to treat one another as we'd like to be treated?

More importantly:

Why don't we fucking act like it?

I'm tired of this hypocrisy

I'm tired of these double standards.

I'm tired...

We all are...
