The words feminism and feminists have garnered such a negative connotation to many people, especially conservatives, and I have a hard time understanding why. Feminism is here to make the world a better place. Beyonce is a feminist and the definition of feminism given in her song Flawless is what feminism is about.
Dear Serena Williams,
Specifically, congratulations to the America of white, uneducated, older people including David Duke, the former grand duke of the KKK. To all of those who fear an "immigrant takeover" of our country and are racists. Congratulations Donald Trump.
To start off, this was a long way coming. Three years of boiling bitterness beneath the surface. You and I both know our deep dislike for each other and how it won't be settled. I so dearly wish I'd be able to confront you directly, but we both know it will never happen. From the freshman tennis team to now, get over yourself.
Ask me about any top college and I'll be able to find someone I know who attended or is currently attending it. Ask me about any math competition and I'll tell you who was number one. Ask me about the academic success stories of others and I'll be able to list too many to count. Ask me who got a 2400 (now 1600) on their SAT or 1520 on their PSAT. Ask about my retired math professor grandpa, first-woman-to-attend-college-in-her-village grandma, high school teacher other grandma, PhD with two masters degrees dad, or my mom who despite having lots of trouble with English got her bachelor's degree and I'll be able to go on for ages about each of their achievements.
But don't ask me about my own success.
