Would you want me to be smaller?

Weaker?

Softer?

Taller?

Would you want me to be quiet?

Do my shoulders provoke you?

Does my chest?

Am I my abdomen?

My hips?

The body I used to be born with, is it not what you needed?

If I put on what’s snug, I’m not a girl. If I shed the layers, I’m a slut.

Although you’ve by no means seen my body, you continue to choose it and choose me for it.

Why?

We make assumptions about folks based mostly on their dimension.

We resolve who they’re, we resolve what they’re price. If I put on extra, if I put on much less, who decides what that makes me? What which means?

Is my worth based mostly solely in your notion?

Or is your opinion of me not my accountability?”
