I am thirteen years old.
Many people see thirteen-year-old people as really young and immature, and that is why we often don't get a lot of recognition. We are put into the "lazy and rebellious" teenager stereotype on our first day of being thirteen. Of course, not by everyone, but by many people in this world. I find it important to break the stereotype.
I am a girl.
I am not a full-out feminist, but I believe wholeheartedly in equality. It is important to me that women are not seen as the gender who can have babies, but as a gender that is equally as important as men, and who deserve just as much recognition, pay, and credit. I do not spread feminism everywhere I go, but that doesn't mean that I am quietly supporting and uplifting the other girls my age who are put down because of their gender.
And yes, I am straight.
But I have LGBTQ+ friends and classmates, and I support them fully and just want people to know that just because they are attracted to different genders, that doesn't mean they should be excluded or classified as weird or gross. They're people, same as us.
And there you have it.
