How You Want To Be Referred To As/ For Better or For Worse

I hate the idea of gender being

How you identify

Or

How you feel inside

It’s too vague and

It doesn’t help the dialogue along, much

The way I’ve experienced gender

Up until this point

Can most succinctly be summarized as

“How I want to be referred to as”

I don’t have testicles, and

That shouldn’t matter

I want to live as and be known as

And be referred to as a man

I used to feel the same way about being

Non-binary used to be what I thought I wanted

But in real life

It didn’t amount to much.

My pain, ultimately, was just a hunch

That I wasn’t being treated the way I wanted to be

For better or for worse.
