Gender Bender

Is it really anyone’s business
What about this gender thing
Does it pertain to likeness
Does it even mean a thing

If you’re intimate it matters
But that’s your business too
Everybody wants to know
Are they intimate with you

Your boss, your government
Why do they even care
They always want to know
What you’re packing under there

On a job application …
Isn’t that discrimination?
Why do they want that information?
Is the job fornication?

A little box is labeled gender
No, I usually just say
And when it’s labeled sex
I answer anyway

Sometimes I say seldom
Or … refer to marital status
Twice on Sundays
Or … never just for gratis

Well, come on now, really
What do they expect?
Will they take my word for it?
Are they going to check?

I enjoy the light mood here to speak on a heavy topic. I wonder "why do they want to know my sex on an application". Could it be they truly are discriminating? of course they are! why else do they need to know? Anyway that is how I see it one opinion of billions on the planet.

A Republican "police state" would check and likely pass gender laws.
