Ariana Grande is sick and tired of the way women are objectified in today's society-and she's taken to Twitter to speak out against it.

According to her note, Grande was grabbing takeout with her boyfriend, Mac Miller, when a young fan approached them, full of enthusiasm.

"He was loud and excited and by the time M was seated in the driver's seat, he was literally almost in the car with us," Grande recounted. "I thought all of this was cute and exciting until he said 'Ariana is sexy as hell man. I see you, I see you hitting that!!!'"

"Hitting that? The f--k??" she continued. "This may not seem like a big deal to some of you but I felt sick and objectified. I was also sitting right there when he said it."

The Grammy-nominee revealed that she "felt really quiet and hurt" and believes that these are the "kinds of moments that contribute to women's sense of fear and inadequacy."

"I am not a piece of meat that a man gets to utilize for his pleasure," she wrote. "I'm an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect."

Grande continued by saying: "(it) hurts my heart that so many young people are so comfortable," using words and phrases that demean and objectify women without thinking twice.

"We need to talk about these moments openly because they are harmful and they live on inside of us as shame," she concluded. "We need to share and be vocal when something makes up feel uncomfortable because if we don't, it will just continue. We are not objects or prizes. We are QUEENS."

Preach it, girl!
