Not My Responsibility
Billie Eilish Lyrics


Do you know me?
Really know me?
You have opinions
About my opinions
About my music
About my clothes
About my body
Some people hate what I wear
Some people praise it
Some people use it to shame others
Some people use it to shame me
But I feel you watching
Always
And nothing I do goes unseen
So while I feel your stares
Your disapproval
Or your sigh of relief
If I lived by them
I'd never be able to move
Would you like me to be smaller?
Weaker?
Softer?
Taller?
Would you like me to be quiet?
Do my shoulders provoke you?
Does my chest?
Am I my stomach?
My hips?
The body I was born with
Is it not what you wanted?
If I wear what is comfortable
I am not a woman
If I shed the layers
I'm a slut
Though you've never seen my body
You still judge it
And judge me for it
Why?
We make assumptions about people
Based on their size
We decide who they are
We decide what they're worth
If I wear more
If I wear less
Who decides what that makes me?
What that means?
Is my value based only on your perception?
Or is your opinion of me?
Not my responsibility

"Not My Responsibility"

Do you know me?
Really know me?
You have opinions about my opinions
About my music
About my clothes
About my body

Some people hate what I wear
Some people praise it
Some people use it to shame others
Some people use it to shame me

But I feel you watching
Always
And nothing I do goes unseen
So while I feel your stares
Your disapproval
Or your sigh of relief
If I lived by them
I'd never be able to move

Would you like me to be smaller, weaker, softer, taller?
Would you like me to be quiet?
Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest?
Am I my stomach? My hips?
The body I was born with
Is it not what you wanted?
If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman
If I shed the layers, I'm a slut

Though you've never seen my body
You still judge it
And judge me for it
Why?

We make assumptions about people based on their size
We decide who they are
We decide what they're worth

If I wear more
If I wear less
Who decides what that makes me, what that means?
Is my value based only on your perception?
Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?

People body shame a lot! It actually hurts..
I’m only 11 years old and I weight 56kg or something. I’m not embarrassed saying this, because I don’t know you, I don’t know who’s reading this, but what I know is, that you, yes you! You can give people motivation to lose weight or to make other people love their body’s. If you do the opposite, people will be insecure and hide their body’s.

Try making the world a better place for us. Stop body shaming! How would you feel if someone called you too skinny or too fat?! It hurts! So please stop! I’m serious…


Stay strong and remember that someone in this world loves you! ❤️

- a lot of love from April.

Philip Liessmann

Male version:


Do you know me?
Really know me?
You have opinions about my opinions
About my job
About my wallet
About my body
Some people hate what I do
Some people praise it
Some people use me to shame others
Some people just use me
But I feel you watching
Always
And nothing I do goes unseen
So while I feel your stares, your disapproval or your sigh of relief
If I lived by them, I'd never be able to move
Would you like me to be smaller, weaker, softer, taller?
Would you like me to speak up?
Does my presence provoke you?
My unstable state of mind
Is it not what you created?
If I speak up and express myself I’m abusive but
If I stay quiet and take the punches I’m a wall lacking all communication skills and so you leave anyway
Though you've never seen me express myself, you still
judge it
And judge me for it
Why?
You make assumptions about men based on their wallet size
You decide who we are
You decide what we’re worth
If I make more, if I make less
Who decides what that makes me, what that means?
Is my value based only on what you can fit in your purse?
Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?
