I am the average girl. We’re special in the way that our minds are built differently. In the way that we all like different things. In the way that most girls don’t work unless their topic is superb.
We usually don’t get to show that we have that special "bang" in us. We’re pressured to be the "sport superstar," the "get better grades because our brains are wired differently," and the "more mature" of the two genders.
We’re just like you, we like to please,but it’s hard when you’re put under pressure.
We’re delicate. When we’re turned down it hurts like anyone else. In sports, however, we can get out there and play just as well as anyone else. Sometimes though we can’t take all the boys can. We’re different, so what?
I like sports just as the much as the next person, but its not the world to me. I know though some girls love sports but they concentrate on other things too.
I’m a hard worker. We usually like to do things right, do it thoroughly, and we make it look nice. That’s why we get irritated if things don’t go as planned. Boys are usually all sports, sports, sports. I would like to say to some "I care about my education, maybe you take it for granted but I don’t."
I’m usually the "you’re not good enough" one. A quick brief, I had finally convinced my friend to play flag football for P.E. It was more like standing around with velcro flags an your hips, though.
When we had been standing around for about 15 minutes she finally said "we’re not doing anything." I responded "well since we’re girls we can’t play football, so we’re bench warmers without the bench," I said with a hint of irritation in my voice.
When, finally, I had a chance to get someone’s flag a boy bumps into me and says "it’s football." I’m not positive but I think it meant," You’re a girl and why is your pink on the football field?"
For once can’t we be treated the same? As equals?
If you have a comment, or if you agree or disagree with me, please leave me a comment I’ll try to respond in the next "Who am I?
