Nobody’s Ever Called Me A Faggot–

Nobody’s ever called me a faggot–

But I have been called a bitch,

A whale, a pig, a cunt and a dyke.

No one has refused me service–

But I have been reprimanded, observed

Discriminated against and fired.

No one has sexually assaulted me–

But I have been beaten, rejected,

Hurt and often feel at odds with our society.

I am not a victim, I am not in search of pity–

I am piecing together the shards of my reality

I am wondering if there is anyone else

Who loses sleep with a bitten tongue

Stewing in their anger, wondering how

Anyone could swallow all this pride

Without throwing up
