Dirty bitch I've had too many pints of poison, now I wanna try your pants on. I don't care if you're really crude, I wanna see you in the nude. Suppose you think it's fun to. tease.

  14. 14. So you're the man, and you've been told what that means. Now you need to control, to fit the social role that's been issued to you by our culture. So spread out, tradition bound, and find in time you'll grow no more. Reverse that way and you will see t he true point of thought before speech. You are no better, and she is no less. You're no born leader, and she is not your bitch. We've got to work to make a community of individuals, But we can't build on what they made. We've got to make your own place with a base of truth. Base that portrays equal says, with due respect and strength to break or cut off the lines that fasely divide one body from another and fuck the pride. Respect. Hot water music, “Tradition”

  17. 17. Your tells are so obvious, shoulders too broad for a girl. It keeps you reminded, helps you remember where you come from. You want them to notice, the ragged ends of your summer dress. You want them to see you like they see every other girl. They just see a faggot. They'll hold their breath not to catch the sick. Washed off on the coast, I wish I could've spent the whole day alone with you. With you. You've got no cunt in your strut. You've got no hips to shake. And you know it's obvious, but we can't chose how we're made. You want them to notice, the ragged ends of your summer dress. You want them to see you like they see every other girl. They just see a faggot. They'll hold their breath not to catch the sick. I wish I could've spent the whole day alone with you. With you. Against me!, “Transgender Dysphoria Blues”
