Reality, you see, is straight and white
And feminism needs to keep it real
These words like “cis” and “intersectional”
Oppress and silence people like myself

Experience is quite irrelevant
To feminism. I am well informed.
How dare you say you might know more than me
About something you live through every day?

Transgender, or of colour, even poor?
Your feminism isn’t really real.
But do not worry, you can still be saved
Be quiet, and I’ll tell you what to do.
