This is something I found, written by KyraGreen. I fixed some spelling errors, but other than that, it’s the same. I found it thought provoking and just too true… Why is society like this? Is it the media’s fault? Is it our fault? Whoever’s fault it is, is not the question.
It’s all of our faults, in a way.
Now we just have to fix it.
Hey, be yourself.
But No, society says. Not like that.
It’s been brought to my attention that we live in society full of idiots. We call ourselves human but yet we live in this inhuman society with these monsters lurking inside of us. We live in a society where us girls are more concerned about looking perfect then actually believing they’re beautiful. We live in a society where the girls are taught how not to get raped, but wait; aren’t we supposed to be teaching the boys not to rape? We live in a society where people have the audacity to sit behind a computer screen and type “Kill yourself”, press send, and not even bother to think twice about what they had said. A society where boys are never trusted, and girls’ true voices are stifled. The mirage of what it is to be “perfect”. And while you go on with your everyday life there are people like me and you just watching. We watch you worrying about the same thing, stressing over a guy or the way you look, and the way you dress because you don’t want anybody to judge you. Because you can’t be different. Being different would mean social torture.
Aren’t we ignorant?
