Well, I won’t back down No I won’t back down You can stand me up at the gates of hell But I won’t back down
No I’ll stand my ground Won’t be turned around And I’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down Gonna stand my ground
And I won’t back down (I won’t back down) Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out (I won’t back down) Hey I will stand my ground And I won’t back down Well I know what’s right I got just one life In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around But I’ll stand my ground And I won’t back down
To anyone saying that people speaking out against Donald Trump need to “drop it”, “get over it”, “let it go”, “give it up”, “quit being little snowflakes” or whatever else insulting and bullying lingo they’d like to use, I say: NO.
I’m not a fucking snowflake. I’m a human being. I’m a human being that wants equal rights for myself and for all the other human beings. And I’m not going to shut up until we get them.
You want to ridicul us by calling us snowflakes when you’re the overly-delicate motherfuckers who get vindictive on a human rights level when more than just Christian holidays are acknowledged? You call us babies when you voted for a fucking racist, sexist BIGOT because you were mad that the job force was being comprised by more than just white males?
I’m not a fucking snowflake and I’m not gonna “let it go” as you so elequaintly put it. I’m going to fight. I’m going to fight for the rest of my life, if that’s what it takes. Because it’s my goddamn duty. Because the gift of life I was given isn’t something that I think is only deserved by myself and people who look like me.
I am not a snowflake. I am a human. And I defend the equal rights of other humans.
With pride. With dignity. And with the knowledge that I am not just thinking of myself and my needs but the needs of all those living on the Earth with me.
Worried E.T. is coming to use you as a skin suit? One courageous writer examines why Earth isn't the Home for Wayward Aliens we fear...
Monica Cable started her writing career early in life, penning her first short story "Nature's Finest" in 1981, at the age of 5. Discouraged by her small child's vocabulary, she felt the short story format was best suited for her but by grade three, brand new home computer at the ready, she felt fit to finally tackle her first novel about the always-interesting grade-school life of a white child in suburban America. Monica continued writing throughout her childhood in Cleveland and into her teens, what could mostly be considered prehistoric fanfiction starring herself and the New Kids on the Block. Eventually, through schooling and life experience, Monica made it to the important milestone of being paid for her word-smithing. She's written, edited and proofread for an Internet publishing and database company, a well-known Hollywood research firm as well as various individual clients. Her personal projects include screenplays, novels, fanfiction and co-authoring the most hilarious chick lit series you're not reading. She recently completed her first non-fiction book "If You Were an Alien, Would You Want to Live Here:an Alien Hypothesis” and is already at work on her next literary marvel. You can follow the progress of her adult Nancy Drew mystery “Those Sassy Bitched and the Clue to the Bloody Mary Remix” at www.NaNoWriMo.org. Monica is now living in Irvine, California with her husband (who is not a member of New Kids on the Block).
