I may not be thin
But I am still beautiful
I may have some scars
But I am still human
I may be gay
But I am not a whore
I may believe differently than you
but that doesn't make me stupid
I may be confident in myself
But that doesn't make me a bitch
If I choose to express myself
That doesn't make me crazy
My dress choice doesn't make me ugly
Just because I insult myself doesn't mean that you can
My love is different than yours but it is still potent
My heart loves
It beats
It yearns
It hopes
It feels
It breaks
I'm just as human as you are
(If you're human at all)

And lo, the gods looked down from their mountain perch
and they hung their heads in shame
