Gender Roles: A Modern Oppressor

I wanted to create deadly race tracks and build enchanted castles when I was younger,
But mami said Hot Wheels and Legos are for boys.
And when I was 12, I wanted to swim at summer camp,
But I was told “pretty girls don’t wet their hair.”

Choose your influencers wisely.
I still regret not getting my hair wet.
