What about you?
In response to a very famous piece right now, though this won't recieve as much attention as that piece will. I've gathered situations from all around and crafted this. 
The Spanish translates to: I need Equality because I don't speak English, but I'm still American. In Texas where I live, the Latino community is very mistreated by society, and everyone who cannot speak English is assumed to be an illegal immigrant, when that's not always the case. I wanted to really hit on that. 
As well as other world issues, Equality is a national thing, not an Westernized Feminist thing, so enjoy.

I hope I'm not being arrogant in assuming that it was my piece (I Need Feminism) that you were referring to as that other piece. If so, then I'm really pleased that it inspired you to write this; it's a really great poem! I love the message and I think it was especially clever of you to put that Spanish bit in. Personally, I think that this deserves more attention than the poem I wrote (I honestly do) because it has a much wider message. I really like it and fully support its message! :)
