FREAK, by Taniqua

They say im a freak, just because of how I look
They say im a freak, just because of how I talk
They say im a freak, just because of how I act
They say im a freak, just because of what I like
They say im a freak, just because of the way I walk
They say im a freak, just because of who I like
Being gay or lesbian shouldn't have you judged
It shouldn't have you on a stage with the spotlight on you
It shouldn't have people walking by talking about you
It shouldn't have you bullied because of it
If you see me as a freak, then I could see you as one too
Just because im not like you
Just because I don't dress like you
Just because I don't act like you
None of that matters
And none of that should ever matter
Let me live my life, if you don't like it then don't look at me
Turn your head when you see me in the hall
Speed walk by and don't cause any problems
Don't look me in the eye
Because ima freak in your mind
Well in my mind, im me
And I love it

~Freak, by Taniqua
"Im not lesbian or gay but i have friends that are and i see how folks treat them and it's wrong. I had a friend that committed suicide a year ago because of it. Im through with people getting bullied to the point where they want to kill themselves, because some folks can't control themselves. If you don't like them walk away and don't say anything, they didn't do anything to you."
