I Fight Like A Girl-Borrowed from V-Days site

Jan 28, 2013 — A poem by: Aerika that I want to share:
I fight like a girl who refuses to be a victim.
I fight like a girl who is tired of being
IGNORED + HUMORED + BEATEN + RAPED.
I fight like a girl who’s sick
of not being taken seriously.
I fight like a girl who’s been pushed too far.
I fight like a girl who OFFERS + DEMANDS RESPECT.
I fight like a girl who has a lifetime of
ANGER + STRENGTH + PRIDE pent up in her girly body.
I fight like a girl who doesn’t believe in FEAR + SUBMISSION.
I fight like a girl who knows that
THIS BODY + THIS MIND are mine.
I fight like a girl who knows that
YOU ONLY HAVE AS MUCH POWER AS I GRANT YOU.
I fight like a girl who will never
allow you to take more than I offer.
I fight like a girl who FIGHTS BACK.
So next time you think you can distract yourself
from your insecurities by victimizing a girl,
THINK AGAIN. She may be ME and
I FIGHT LIKE A GIRL.
