Masculine & feminine
Should not be as different as men & women are
Because men & women are not that different.
Back when we were breathing
Through our navels instead of our lungs,
Girls & boys couldn’t be told apart.
Why split our oxygen supply into two again
With this belief of masculine vs. feminine?
It might be politically incorrect
To believe the battle of the sexes can reach a solution,
But break the female party and the male party down to their constituents
And you’ll see they have correspondent members:
In puberty women’s busts went through a boom phase
While the prostate is a womb in recession.
The ballsack is the vagina’s left & right wings in alliance
To arrest the ovaries when they descend into testosterone-fuelled anarchy,
And the penis is a clitoris stuck in permanent inflation.
That’s why its pleasure is valued less.
The Qur’an calculates men having “a degree” over women
(Suwrah 4 ayah 34)
But that doesn’t add up
‘Cause women have the same number of hormones as us.
On the chromosomal level
X + X = viable,
X + Y = viable,
X + nothing = viable,
Y + nothing = extinct.
Can any religion minus that factor from their formulae
And still equal sexual justice?
If it could the god of Abraham would’ve commanded us
To lop off our penises and sow our scrotums up
As the God of cultural aesthetics commands us
To lop off girls’ clitorises and sow up their labia
But the God of human whims dictates that
Such misandry is not allowed.
Now the pendulum of culture is swinging again
Away from men’s rule over women
– But which direction is it swinging?
