Rhymes Without Reason

I had no idea until today that this was the marching slogan of Queers Against Israeli Apartheid:

Butch, femme, bottom, top

Israeli apartheid has to stop.

Hmm. Michael Coren expands on the paradox of an anti-apartheid rallying cry itself obsessed with categorization. But I found myself wondering: Is there a Queers Against Sharia? If not:

Butch, femme, top, bottom

Gay bars in Riyadh? It’s hard to spot ‘em

Bottom, top, femme, butch

Pride parade’s dull since the Taliban putsch

Top, bottom, butch, femme

With complimentary FGM

Top, bott, butch, femme, trans

Quit your chanting and read your Korans.
