What Guys Look For In Girls - A Slam Poem by Savannah Brown
Savannah Brown: This poem is not meant to target or blame men. The title is in reference to the video the poem was inspired by, and I kept it as that to show that within society, we always assume there to be a clear persecutor and victim, men and women respectively (which is obviously being shown in the comments section now), but that is not always the case. Everyone is affected by standards, be it men, women, or however else you identify yourself. I made sure to keep this poem as gender-neutral as possible, apart from the portions in which I was speaking in first person, obviously, and I made sure I addressed both standards of male and female beauty (girls soft quiet pretty / boys manly muscles pretty). I’m on your side, boys! Expectations are detrimental to all of us and my work is relevant to you regardless of your gender.
