Which is Which?

Report Story

Why is a concept praised or laughed at based on gender?

One is slow-cooked until it’s medium-revolution.

One is baked until firmly humored.

Which is which?

Her soul cries for soccer but her bestie cries style.

He twirls on tip toes and leaps free for a while.

She’s a tomboy and skateboards most of the time.

He bakes when there’s doubt, but the cake’s fall was a crime.

She got into football against all odds.

They disguised for a pageant with convincing kid bods.

She went to save her father by fighting a war,

To sell Scout Cookies, he sort of went that far.

She wanted a friend with interests no matter the gender.

When he thought his soul’s pink, into passiveness, he no longer surrendered.

She’s a martial artist who used to live on land.

He’s worn several dresses, but he’s bigender. Understand?

They’re in a scout troop of army drills and thick skin.

He feared destroying his doll in order to fit in.

In a video game, “I beat my friends” said her.

These toddlers wore dresses because they didn’t know better.

When color returned, her pink landed on him.

And HE won a beauty pageant when approval was slim.

One is baked for humor.
