YOU’RE NOT A WALKING CIRCUS. STOP ACTING LIKE ONE

Why are you worried about getting noticed more than you should be craving for respect? Generally speaking, I sometimes feel like the world is starting to flip upside down. You’re showing a perfectly opposite example of what you should be showing the future generation. How is it going to be? One day, respect will be something no one will even recognize. Isn’t that scary and sickening? You’re so desperate about getting attention to the point where you forget you’re even a person. A human that should be respected. Not a thing, not a piece of meat that men can hump and leave when they’re done. Not someone people will use. You’re not a walking circus. Stop acting like one.

  1. This made me think of something I’m going to write a poem about, I saw it on T.V. last night. A young woman moved from the Caribbean–where she was a model–to the United States. She found it difficult to get a foothold in the industry and, as she aged, she thought about trying to break into the world of hip hop modeling (being in videos). So she decided to have silicone implants injected in her posterior…but no reputable doctor performs that procedure so everything is “black market”. Unfortunately, the back room procedure was performed using industrial grade silicone, which immediately travelled through her blood stream and into her lungs. Despite being ill, she waited a full 24 hrs to disclose the procedure to doctors and ended up dying from blood clots in her lungs. I felt angry, depressed and bewildered that we live in a society where the crave for external sources of validation would put a young woman (or force her to put herself) in that position.

    Sorry for the longwinded aside, but your post brought it all to mind immediately.
