爸,妈,你们是不是只爱我弟弟?

我弟弟常常买名牌,穿Nike, Adidas。我都穿妈妈的旧衣服。

我弟弟的房间有冷气。我的房间没有冷气,只有风扇。

我弟弟懒惰,但你们没有骂他。只有我一直被骂。

什么玩具,你都买给他。我呢?什么都没有。

爸,妈,你们是不是太重男轻女了?出生性别我不能决定。我们两个的骨,是一样白的。我们两个的血,也是一样红的。为什么你们不会对我们一视同仁?

唉,我不想当女生了。

English translation:

Dad, Mom, do you only love my younger brother?

My brother often buys famous brands and wears Nike, Adidas, but I am wearing my mother's old clothes.

My brother's room is air-conditioned, but my room is not air-conditioned, only using a fan.

My brother is lazy, but you don't scold him. You only scold me.

Any kind of toy, you buy it for him. But me? Nothing.

Dad, Mom, aren't you too patriarchal? I can't decide my sex of birth. The bones of us,  are equally white. The blood of our two are also equally red. Why don't you treat us equally?

Ugh, I don't want to be a girl anymore.
