The other half of the world (choose homosexuality)

If you are a woman,
and men in our culture
consistently deny your humanity,
because you are not pretty enough
or not passive enough
or not submissive enough
to their ideal of a “real woman”
then you should choose homosexuality.

If you are a man,
and women in our culture
consistently deny your humanity,
because you are not rich
or not aggressive enough
or not submissive enough
to their ideal of a “real man”
then you should choose homosexuality.

Remember: it is a lie
whenever they say
“you cannot choose to be gay.”
It is a trap to keep you begging
for your humanity
from people who were taught
to deny it from you.

If the half of the world
that you were taught to want
does not want you,
unless they can break you,
then you should look
to the other half of the world.
