Male is the norm
What do we get?
In need of another
Forced into childhood
Expectations forced on us
Little bitch: weak
Such a bitch: too strong, difficult, too outspoken
Women hold, Men take up space
Physically, spatially, culturally, linguistically
And what of those who live outside men and women?
This is patriarchal
This is rape culture
I am not immune to these transgressions
I am only now becoming aware
Now I hear
I am not a guy, I am not a girl
I am a woman
