26 (who?)
   Girls are not meant to be your toys.
We aren't eye candy for the boys. 
We are just us. Just simple, beautiful fabulous us.
So why are you forcing us to become something other than the original?
Do you want us to all be the same? 

   Girls are not meant to be quiet.
We are meant to be loud.
Stand up for what we believe in.
Be strong. 
And fight.

   Girls are not meant to sit properly.
To go to balls. 
To dance with men in tight dresses.
We are meant to jump around in loose shirts.
Like no ones watching.
And dance like no ones caring. 

   Girls are not meant to cook all your meals. 
Not meant to be caretakers.
We are meant to be scientists, engineers, and other things too.

   Not your eye candy, or cooks, or any other "feminine" fad guys come up with.
We are meant to be who we want to be. 

We as women, can be whatever we want to be and will not be defined by what society thinks.

Coming from a girl, I agree with this 100% All females should be treated as a human being, and not expected to be "lady-like" all the time (albeit, there are some girls who do prefer to be girly)

I think not only some males that are treating us like this, but also the media is influencing us into thinking that we need to wear makeup all the time to be pretty, etc.  Awesome poem :)

Just because we're girls doesn't mean we're LADIES! And not all girls have to do what men want

This is a very beautiful poem. I love how you say that we can be whoever we wish to be. If only all people can at least think about things like this and take some time to review facts. Not all girls are girly, just like boys not all being tough.

This is very inspirational and I absolutely love it!

Who says we HAVE to be a girl? Who says we have to dress and act like one? "You're a young lady, now. Act like it" NO, I will NOT act like it. I act however the hell I want. even if i get into trouble

We girls gotta stick together and say "FUDGE YOU" to all the people who wants us to act like a girly-girl or a fancy lady!

Well, I actually know some girls who LIKE acting proper. 

The poem is really trying to say that us girls shouldn't be defined by what society says. We should go our own ways. If a girl wants to act proper and put her hair up, I'm not stopping her. Girls should have the freedom to be whoever they want. Whether they want to proper, unladylike, asexual, or whatever! It's their choice.
