You can be anything you want to be (except yourself)

Born white, born straight, born male;
you better ditch those titles right now.
Check your DNA; find something exotic about yourself;
trust me, you’ll have an easier life if you identify as a rampant cow.

In our politically correct, liberal, feminist society,
you can be anything you want to be except yourself, of course.
You can try to resist;
a bigot;
a racist;
a misogynist, if you please.
You don’t stand a chance; the language is even against you.
This artificial creation we now call civilised society wants to see you in a dress.

Feel comfortable with your gender?
You better start to find your counter identity.
Lay on that couch and discover you once kissed your uncle;
it’s time for you to embrace a gender-neutral entity.

In our politically correct, liberal, feminist society,
you can be absolutely anything you want to be, but not yourself—heaven forbid!
You can try to resist;
a homophobe;
a fattist;
a chauvinist—God forbid!
You don’t stand a chance; even the language hates you.
This artificial creation we now call civilised society wants to see you all confused.

From man-up to man-flu the language is so diseased;
it wants to bring you to your knees and see you in that dress.
From gender-fluid to gender-neutral the words are so contrived;
they want to bring you to a point of shame and see you distressed.

Remember you can be anything you want to be;
it’s such a wonderfully free and liberal society.
There are no limits to what you can become;
just so long as you don’t become yourself.

In our politically correct, liberal, feminist society,
you can be anything you want to be, trust me it’s the truth, but you can’t be you.
You can try to resist;
mansplaining;
manspreading;
manterrupting—oh, for shame!
You don’t stand a bloody chance; even the language is polluted.
This artificial creation we now call civilised society wants to see you fucking destroyed.
