that is not your name…
when your parents looked at you in the delivery room,
they didn’t say:
“we should name this beautiful baby…
the one you rightfully goes as,
is actually whats on your birth certificate.
what you introduce yourself as when you meet people.
its the name you use to sign documents.
what you put on top of your research papers or work assignments.
see when strange people call you those names,
people who don’t even know you,
they should have no effect on you whatsoever.
your sexuality is a small piece to the wonderful creation that is you.
you are more than who you choose to fuck.
shit i would be rather be called those names than:
the ones that limit you in society.
ones that stop you from providing for yourself.
i’d also rather be called those names than these gems:
the ones where people can’t trust me.
the ones where i can’t even trust myself.
see people will try to put a title on you.
we are all “some name” when being talked about.
it shouldn’t bother you.
always remember: that is not your name.
