THIS BOY WAS
DATING MY
FRIEND
AND WHEN
THEY BROKE
UP HE CALLED
HER
A SLUT
I THINK THE
MEDIA
ALLOWS
TEACHES
BO
YS...THAT
THIS IS
COOL

HE WOULD
BULLY
HER

HE WOULD
SAY
THINGS TO
SHAME
HER

HE
STARTED
BEING
DISRESPECTFUL
TO ME.

AND I CAL
LED HIM OUT
ON IT
I WAS LIKE
"YOU ARE NOT
PULLING
THAT ON ME."
IT IS HARD
TO STAND
YOUR GROUND
AND EASY TO BE
SCARED.
