Appropriation

Pop stars are appropriating queerness

They’ve always been doing it

But now it’s like

Everywhere.

Everyone is genderqueer, now. I guess

It’s a good thing, I’m not complaining

But it also kinda makes it so that

None of us are really queer

We are all just performing

Yes, gender is a construct

Yes we perform it

But some of us are not on stage

Some of us are born with it

I wish the pop stars would be themselves

Instead of being me

They’re taking my unique most qualities

And appropriating

Without shame

I don’t get to live without the shame

Why do they get paid

To be without my shame

Without my pain?

I guess they’re leading the way

But they didn’t start it,

they don’t have claim
