SHAKESPEARE ON GENDER FLUIDITY
When shall we three meet again
The Isley Brothers, Bill and Jane?
From my birth I’ve been called Bill
Occasionally I feel male still,
Being born with cock and balls
I use the Gents when paying calls.
Sometimes though I don’t feel like him
That’s when I’m Jane with home-made quim
And when I’m in my lady mode
That’s when my nudger’s in the road.
At other times this old heart
Of mine takes on another part;
That’s when I’m neither butch nor femme
Or even one – I’m “They” or “Them”.
There are times when I get confused
But surely it’s for me to choose;
And just as I might choose my sex
I’ll also choose my species next;
It follows from this monologue
I’ve every right to be a frog.
The Isleys, Kermit, she and he
Can be just what we want to be.
Now you might think this rank stupidity
No way, Hose; it’s gender fluidity.

I'm afraid I find it all rather silly, Stephen.
Thanks for the Like, Red Brick.

Keep 'em coming, John. It's a serious subject but there's no reason why it shouldn't be treated with humour.
'I think I'll take advice from Sturgeon
Before I go to see the surgeon'.
Or something like that.

It was Hose, Ghost: he was a Spanish fireman!
And thanks for the Like, Stephen.
