Murray Hill: Continued
It’s gotta be just because it’s like
The first drag king I’ve seen on mainstream tv.
Hillary Swank doesn’t count don’t even try—
Are not the same. They have
Crossover but tbh the verbiage
The tags, the SEO boost that comes with
I think it’s a convenience of the times.
They’ve told us we’ve been represented but
It’s all the same kind of body.
Finally I see
Me on screen and I
Run and hide because I’ve been
In the comfort of my own bubble,
Where my identity grows and thrives.
Representation— albeit necessary
Is a double edged sword, you don’t feel
Heard when you’re seen, and you don’t
Get the final word. You’re just naked
Hearing everyone’s reception and
Try not to take it personally.
