There once was a man who was woman

MVP? She was a shoe-in

With hands like the feet

Of those that she beat

Sporting dreams of others she did ruin

Views on the news, delivered so smooth. This week’s inspired by:

The New Evolution Deniers

A Surfeit of Empathy and an Absence of Compassion

    Ha! Good one, Graham!

    (If I’d known I was a week ahead of ‘Surfeit of Empathy’ I would’ve posted my epic genius work here.)

  2. Sydney says

    Feels a little like I’m cheating but, ‘what-the-hey’, you’re the boss!

    Inspired by:
    “New Patriarchy: How Trans Radicalism Hurts Women, Children – And Trans People”
    “A Surfeit of Empathy and an Absence of Compassion”

    Misgender me in Canada and you might go to jail,
    I’m a girl if I say so, or maybe I’m a male.

    Remember Lewis Carroll and his little muse?
    He reminds me of our gender issues from two separate views.

    Reminder ONE is Alice’s upside-down fictional world.
    Reminder TWO is not dream at all but real nightmare unfurled:

    It seems Lewis Carroll was a pedophile, and weirdly obsessed with little Alice,
    Today trans-females assert rights to girls’ change-rooms while sporting intact phallus.

  3. Sydney says

    Inspired by ‘The New Evolution Deniers’:

    Academic Intersectionalism is the new Church and Altar,
    You’re born a ‘Wendy,’ but Spirit whispers that you’re ‘Walter.’

    Free of Capitalism and Patriarchy we’re really all alike,
    Romanian or Ethiopian peddle equally on a bike.

    Biology is now a far-right tool with its ‘Evolution’ talk,
    Used to be the ‘Creationist’ was the right-wing hawk.
