(Read the piece again from bottom up once done)

Society is sexist, racist & homophobic
And I refuse to believe that
A man can feel emotions
Many will agree with me, that
You can love whoever you want
Is not true even one bit
Society can never change 
I’m going to tell my children that
I have my priorities straight because
Being oppressive  
Has more power than 
Being understanding and accepting
No one should believe that
Women and men are equal 
Everyone will finally see that
Being resistant to change is correct
It is foolish to presume that
We can change our ways
