I was learning to do my speech in a multistructural way and this is what it sounds like. I can use parts of the speech structure and one idea connects to the point of view for another example I used a rhetorical question when I said this: Have you noticed people saying, you can't join that because you are a boy or a girl? It can get really annoying when you hear it being said, especially if it is you. And I used lots and lots of detail. I think I did really well with doing it.
My language devices will probably be well I used detail and rhetorical questions.
I did most of the speech by myself, and I got help a couple of times, so I am proud of myself.

Boy and girl things
Have you noticed people saying, you can't join that because you are a boy or a girl? It can get really annoying when you hear it being said, especially if it is you. Perhaps you were walking past when you heard “girls can’t play rugby.” It would make me feel sad, because it stops people from trying new sports, and it’s not even true. It’s just like a rumour that people spread. It’s called prejudice to say that to other people. Take ballet for example. Ballet isn't just for girls, it’s for boys and girls.
My friend Naima has a friend, a boy, who does ballet and he is too embarrassed to show her his moves because he worries about what she will think.
I think people should be able to try new sports without people saying they can’t, or without worrying what people will say.
Take Gymnastics people think gymnastics is a girl sport because people sell leotards and they don't sell any boy things for gymnastics. It is similar to ballet. It is a sport for anyone, you can do it when you are older you can do it at a young age and you can also do it now!!!!!!!! Also think about the Olympics there are lots and lots of boys that made it to the Olympics and they are on a high level to get up there. They do all sorts of things like the rings, trampolining and they also do bars.
There is so many things that people think boys or girls can't do. Don't you think boys should be allowed to wear pink, what I mean is there is no such things then boy or girl colors .
Or another one, hair. people think only girls can tie their hair up BUT boys can too. I know is sounds crazy but it is true and girls can have short hair long hair and it is the same as boys. And I know there is no problem because my hair was long but then I decided to get it done really short well not really about up to my chin. I couldn't tie it up but now my hair is kind of long and I can tie it up . almost. so that it how I know that there is no problem about having short or long hair.
You don't need to worry about what people will think! If you are planning to get your hair really short or you want to grow it long then do it. I want people to change what they say, that people can't join in games. So the message in this speech is don't say there is boy or girl things because there aren't any.
