And so I had sex with that man, Your Honor
Not because he wanted it
Not because I was infatuated or in love
or for a deeper purpose to be extracted by a psychiatrist.
I was just curious
and a human, an individual.
is that not reason enough?
Not for the gender-brand managers who brought me before The People’s Court,
eager to paste a label to reassure and satisfy identity consumers that only men do what I did.
Guilty! Thrown and locked in a cell
with other slimy females as well
whose bodies did not provide the desired adhesion for name tags,
they would not appeal their case through error confession or error correction.
I guess you can say they were unappealing.
I wonder… why do we create norms and act like it came from something greater and more inflexible than ourselves?
“Blame society” “Rebel against society”
An eavesdropping alien from space would think Society is a visible god, wanting us girls to fit nicely in pink frills on His shelf.
