Men don’t cry, and women don’t fight,
And women wear heels so they look alright,
And make-up is important, and so is delicacy,
And when it comes to emotions, they all need secrecy.
And men wear pants, not wigs or skirts,
And they don’t admit it when they get hurt,
They must have power, they must be strong,
And acting different is obviously wrong.
Because female is one thing, and another,
Two separate categories, like father and mother,
And if you believe this, God bless your soul,
Does gender, so strongly, dictate a role?
What does gender matter, at the end of the day,
It’s not black and white, but an equal shade of grey.
“Men” can be “women”, and the other way around,
Until these expectations are nowhere to be found.
