Pardon?

The degree of a man’s civility
Has seldom to do with his virility,
For in the fickle assertions of society
Are contradictions of a ridiculous variety.
To take any of them truly to heart
Would brand you a fool and set you apart.

…Ah, but would they truly?

Yes and no, to be honest -- cruelly.
