Gender Is How You Are Perceived
Yes, I see myself as male, and I was
Very frustrated with life as a female
However, the cure
To this problem
Was other people.
Gender is how you are perceived
By other people.
It governs your social interactions,
It governs your job expectations
It governs your finances, it even
Governs who gets the bill at the end of the evening.
Gender is not dead, gender is not irrelevant
Gender is everywhere and everything, gender is
How people treat you
Gender is how people love you
Gender is whether you’re
Loud, arrogant, and self-obsessed, or
Confident, brave, and up-to-the-test
Gender is in your brain, but it is also
In the brain of the audience.
I am always blown away
At the difference between socializing
As him, verses socializing as her.
Anyone who says
That gender doesn’t matter
Is probably telling themselves that
Everyday as a reminder.
Because, sorry, ya’ll–
It fucking does.
