He'll beat you.
He will drink.
Don't look. She isn't sick like you
She won't care.
won't even try.
If you were drunk, you deserved it.
DO NOT BE A SLUT
If he wanted it, you deserved it.
Always wear a bra.
Don't let anyone see it
If you looked, you deserved it.
Be thin. I don't care how.
Stay at home.
Don't tell anyone when he gives you bruises.
Don't tell anyone when she holds you down.
Don't choke on it.
If you got pregnant, it is your fault.
If you weren't awake to say no, you deserved it.
Wear a dress.
Don't show too much skin.
"I want to see those tits, baby."
Don't look. Don't speak. They'll go away. Maybe.
If you aren't interested, you deserved it.
Be overqualified. They won't hire you.
Don't even try.
Don't even look.
Always carry a weapon.
Assault earns more time than rape
than being a woman
"Show me your legs"
Your media-perfect legs.
If you smiled, you deserved it.
There are women who have learned to extort their bodies.
We hate them.
They deserve it.
Don't breathe. Breathe, and you waste.
"God, you women are so expensive."
You'll want kids one day, even if it kills you. Even if you don't.
"Let me change your mind."
"You really mean yes."
As a woman I have learned,
the state only cares about me before I'm born
or if I'm pregnant.
As a woman I have learned
nothing is my own choice.
As I live I've learned
not everyone knows the Girl Scout Law
and how it deemed me
too feminine to learn how to tie a knot.
I don't know why society thinks
I'd like to lay down and take it
that I enjoy being told
I am nothing except
a receptacle for its semen
and a birth canal for its culture
I am done being told I deserve it.
