I never thought I'd be one of those girls

called awful names behind their back.

I was the one who pitied those girls

who pitied them and wasn't one of them

But then a dumb boy

who didn't even know what it meant

what an impact it had

said it right there

in front of the whole school, no less.

I've never even had a boyfriend before

never even had my first kiss

and you think it's okay to call me that?

it's not,

not okay to call a girl that ever

no matter what she's done.

And while she yells asshole

and stomps away,

later she'll cry

big loud stomach-hurting tears

and you'll see her the next day with

red eyes and whispers in her wake.

And I'm just saying

it's so unfair that one word can change

her whole life.

One word that

wouldn't shouldn't couldn't have been said

unless some dumb boy pulled it out of their head

knowing it'd hurt but not knowing why.

So I'm telling you

because maybe you didn't know

but it's not right

it's not moral

it's not okay

to ever call a girl a –

to ever call her…

a…

whore
