I reject your reality, and substitute my own. (Adam Savage)


I don't understand my society.
Why is sexism and rape amusing?
Pornography is a pastime and sex
is a marketing tool.

But most of all the ideals hurt.
I can't be myself.
I must love women
or they will hurt me.

What I understand is that conformity
is normality. White is right
and thin is in. Gay men are killed
and popularity is currency.
