Freedom of Speech

My body is not up for debate

When your speech takes our freedom
my friend, then we’ll hit right back
‘Cos what you say makes it okay
for bigots to beat assault and maim
for authorities to ignore our pain
for medical malpractice
to continue without shame

My gender is not up for debate

When one in three try suicide
It’s not theoretical, bear in mind
the impact of your hateful slurs
Your shit-filled piss-stain fucking words

My life is not up for debate
Fuck your freedom of speech
You unrepentant, stinking shower of cunts
