I Am Not a Fucking Teacup by Bethany.

I’m not a fucking teacup.

I’m not fragile like a set of fancy dishes.

My worth isn’t measured by how I look. 

My value isn’t wrapped up in sex.

My pussy isn’t a flower; it doesn’t make me fragile… and I wont allow my worth to be calculated by it.

My value doesn’t decrease increase,or change in any way,  

by the number of people I choose to sleep with.

But, that’s what I was told.

I sat in a room full of other impressionable young teenage girls, as we were handed expensive delicate teacups, and told that we were just like that: beautiful, expensive, easily broken

And impossible to put back together.

Fuck that.

Fuck the idea what I was only whole if I chose to remain “pure”.

Fuck the people who said that a man’s penis somehow had the power to destroy my value as a human being. 

How dare they try to take away my power and my choices with fear and lies.

I now know that: Virginity is a construct. 

Men and they opinion if my body have nothing to do with my worth.

Who I sleep with is my choice and mine alone, and will not change my value.

But, sometimes I think about how much pain I could have been saved

How much anxiety.

How much fear.

If, at 15 years old. My strength and worth hadnt been diminished to the weight and size of a $15,  8 oz piece of shit tea cup. 

How dare anyone compare women, filled with power strength and intelligence, to a item that can be easily broken bought or sold. 

Take your insulting sexist unbiblical metaphors that poison our lives They can burn in hell.
