I am woman.
I am here.
I am that which
all men fear:
that what he knows
is just not so,
and what is so
he cannot know.

The words ring clear:
Believe. Revere.

I am trans and
I am queer.
I am that which
all men fear:
that he is not
what he was taught,
that we have thought
and quite a lot.

The words ring clear:
Believe. Revere.

They say that if you believe
in the equality of genders,
you are a feminist
and should call yourself one.

Tell me )

You speak of 'spinning glamorie' or 'weaving glamorie' as though spinning and weaving are arts comparable to that of creating glamorie. You say this who have never done any threadwork in your life. Here: pass the shuttle between the warp threads and watch the thread grow too taut here, the weave too loose there. Here: give the spindle a twist and watch the infant yarn fall to pieces.

You say the effort of glamorie is comparable to that of threadwork. You, sir, lie. If glamorie were difficult as threadwork, you would compel me to do it, rather than forbidding me.

They say that women hold up half the sky,
like Atlas, one of two pillars to keep
its heavy weight from crashing down from high.
We hold it up forever, and we weep
because our daughters will be holding it
up too, with cooking sewing cleaning and
caretaking, never time to breathe, to sit.
Men so rarely offer helping hands.
They work so hard for money; yes, we know,
for we work just as hard, and then come home
for second shift, unpaid, as children grow
to learn that men are steel and women stone.
They support their half the sky with ease,
but theirs is lighter. Little help here, please?

Today I saw a bumper magnet on an
SUV. In red and white and blue it said
"freedom isn't free".

'Support our soldiers', too, in gold )

Those who pay the price are not the ones who get
the benefit. All we want is our fair share!
Secure OUR liberty!
