I saw on the feed of a page that I like–
“Trans men need to stop pretending
Like they’re the only people in the community–“
… what the hell?
In all of society
Thinks transgender means
Trans woman. No exceptions.
When I say
“We need more trans male representation”
I don’t mean–
We need to cancel everything else– quite the opposite–
I feel cancelled because I’m not
What people expect.
My existence is silenced, and
The only trans rights anyone wants to talk about
Are trans femme rights, and nonbinary individuals
With hot enough instagrams.
I identify as nonbinary, however
No one takes that seriously anymore, unless I call myself
Becky– a female name. A name that is allowed to be
Genderqueer in the dredges of the masses– A name
I was given by one of my teachers.
I do not identify as a Becky, I just
Have been treated as such, but
It doesn’t hurt to flip you all
On your heads once you figure out
Becky is a man, and he is
Properly pissed, proportionally perturbed
By the lack of representation, and
The idea that
Anyone that doesn’t perpetuate
The “woke canon”
Is cancelled, wrong, and otherwise
Maybe that’s the idea
We should deconstruct next…
Fuck it, who am I kidding
I fucking hate talking nowadays.
