I am a woman. I am a person.
I deserve equal pay and protection.
I am not here to watch my rights worsen.
And now, I will fight in this election.

I will make decisions as an adult.
Only I determine when I have sex.
I will not be called demeaning insults.
I deserve to be treated with respect.

It is never my fault if I am raped.
I won't tolerate being punched and burnt.
You can't and will not "put me in my place."
This is my body and it is not yours.

Yes, I decide what enters my body.
I am absolutely not your sex toy.
I have the right to fight in the army.
These decisions won't be made by a boy.

It is my choice to have an abortion.
It is your sexism I will not endure.
You won't judge me for a man's perversions.
This is my body and it is not yours.

I decide whom I will love and marry.
I do not need someone to rescue me.
I am not distressed nor am I worried.
I can choose, even if you disagree.

I will not be paid 23 cents less.
It's my decision to use birth control.
I will wear either sweat pants or a dress.
This is my body and it is not yours.

I will use Planned Parenthood's services
Be it for an abortion or cancer.
I will not accept your hateful message.
These decisions require my answer.

This intolerance needs to be stopped now.
We are people too; we won't be quiet.
I am a woman. I am a person.
This body is mine; these choices are mine.
Okay, I had second thoughts about posting this. I made this in the Summer.

I came to the conclusion that, so long as I would not be flamed etc for posting this poem, I've decided to keep comments open.

You're allowed to leave your opinions, but not allowed to flame or insult me.

Idea from the "I Am A Woman" campaign.

This is awesome. Thank you so much for writing this. I would show this to my parents but... that would just cause more issues. But seriously, this is great.

Yes, hopefully. The sad thing is is that my mother thinks some of these are stupid and I'm like "Mom wat."
