Hi! Yesterday, at my summer camp, rude comments were made about girls. One boy (who will remain unnamed) said "You guys are probably going to say that you can make all the decisions because you are girls and girls are so bossy." and said "You know what the most annoying thing on the planet is? It is girls!"
I don't think that we should be hurt with these comments. We should be proud that we are girls! We are strong, beautiful, kind, and wise and I don't think that we should even waste our time thinking about a rude comment that contradicts that! I don't care about what somebody else thinks about me or my gender. I care about what I think about my self.
People say girls are bossy and people say girls are mean! But, is all that really true? What is so different about girls and boys anyway? Sure, they might look different and maybe act different ways, but the fact is that we are all humans, we all live on earth, and when you really think about it girls and boys are not that different at all. If girls and boys are not that different after all, then why are they treated differently? Why are girls who take charge called bossy while boys who take charge are called leaders. Why are girls thought of as weak? Why is a boy always referred to as the leader of the family? Why do stories always portray boys saving girls instead of the other way around?
I'm sick of girls being treated differently and I will not stand for it!
