Get over it.
We define who you are.
From the day you are born.
We call the shots.
We classify.
We, not you, decide how you will identify
for your entire life.
We classify.
We put you neatly in a box—
Our box.

We classify.
We, not you, decide what you will be like.
We put you neatly in our box,
and if anything is sticking out we cut it off.

Get over it.
We define who you are.
With our neatly defined criteria.
And we never make a mistake.

You better behave.
Get ready to rehearse.
You’ll perform the identity
we gave you.
If you disobey,
you’ll just prove you’re perverse,
and only make matters worse.

Embrace the binary.
Be who we tell you
you were meant to be,
“naturally.”
Conform to the binary.
And you’ll be free.
