Hasn't Hurt Me

Bryson has two mommies.
It hasn't hurt me a bit.
I once pissed in a stall
with a girl born Paul
on the other side -
and I lived.
I've kissed a girl and liked it.
I've kissed boys and liked that, too.
And I'll be damned if I deny myself either
just to pacify a bigot like you.

MZ--You made several points--all extra-necessary these days--without beating anyone over the head.

But perhaps some people DESERVE to be beat over the head?

Your keen wit highlights petty-mindedness in a way that would make me creep away ashamed if I were guilty (which I hope I am not). This is a scorcher.
