Just because I am gayDon’t think I like you, I like hot guysDon’t think I can’t judge women, I am not blindDon’t think I am weak, I am stronger than youJust because I am gayIt doesn’t mean I am not supported, I receive even more support than youIt doesn’t mean I can’t “hang with the guys”, I can control myselfIt doesn’t mean I can’t “be a man”, I can be who I wantJust because I am gayDon't think you can get away with harming me or those I hold dear, you won'tDon't think you can electrocute my life out of me, nothing can stop me from being meDon't think your comments are any less offensive, words hurtJust because I am gayIt doesn't mean I am any different than you, we are all homosapiensIt doesn't mean I won't get offended when you use slurs targeting me, words hurtIt doesn't mean you are any better than I am, we all are equalJust because I am gayDon’t think I won’t get married, I will get marriedDon’t think that I think any less of you, I am not biasedJust because I am gay- don’t think any less of me
