Unsubscribed

I say FEMINIST;
You think MAN-HATER.
But I don’t subscribe to hate in any way, shape, or form!

I say CHRISTIAN;
You think HOMOPHOBIC.
But I don’t subscribe to a faith that denounces equality!

I say WOMAN;
You think GIRL.
But I don’t subscribe to a social construct that infantilizes women.

I say SOCIALIST;
You think COMMUNIST.
But I don’t subscribe to the sole belief that capitalism is the solution to all economic problems!

I say ACTIVIST;
You think BUSYBODY.
But I don’t subscribe to the passive actions of society that allow oppression to occur within their own cultures!

I say LAWYER;
You think CROOK.
But I don’t subscribe to miscarriages of justice occurring in our legal system!

I say GRADUATE;
You think ELITIST.
But I don’t subscribe to a population that supports the separation of class and educational means!

I say COMPASSIONATE;
You think EMOTIONAL.
But I don’t subscribe to the presumption that empathy restricts rationalization.

I have unsubscribed to what others assume about me.
Because when you ASSUME, you make an ASS out of U and ME!
