Peach Klimkiewicz: Don’t talk

Don’t talk   Don’t talk of gender or of sex. Don’t talk of science at all events.   Don’t talk of him. Don’t talk of me. Don’t stand for masculinity.   Don’t talk ideas. Don’t ask for proof. Don’t be so brash to ask for truth.   Don’t talk of drugs or family. Just bark the word “Equality!”   Don’t talk free speech or liberty. Just bark the word “Diversity!”   Don’t talk about South Africa. You shut your mouth! Don’t act bizarre.   Don’t talk about the media or Marxist academia.   Don’t think it through. Don’t be that…
