Let me ask you something. Why is it that I care about people and their lives, and I am scorned for it? Why is it that a man has to be tough, like certain types of movies (no chick-flicks), appreciate sport and surf porn daily? If being verile (manly) means being muscular, cool and completely against sentimentality, then stuff mankind! I’m backing women, who have been oppressed and shoved into shitty lifestyles in order to get anywhere in this society. They’re the ones who are appreciated as porn stars. They’re the ones who won’t get anywhere unless they look at the very least, average. They’re the ones that have to go through menses and childbirth and being bombarded with the idea that girls should play with dolls instead of trucks. Worst of all, they’re the ones who are meant to care when males do not.
Let me re-iterate. If any random person at school read this entry, they would assume I am gay. I am not. I may be effeminate (because I’m definitely not meterosexual), but if I have to take slander and abuse for caring, then I will take it. Like a man.
(if I had based my short story assessment in Term 1 on the above speech, I would have nailed a 25, surely.)
