Identity, a poem

I identify as female, but not with the female.  
Difference in wording is to be noted.
Essentially, I am providing permission to use female pronouns.
Nevertheless, I wish not to be grouped with the female stereotypes.
The pre-destination determined by gender roles and generalizations,
Is the most harmful social construction to individuality.
To identify as female simply means that feminine pronouns are acceptable.
Yet, I become susceptible to the baggage brought by the wo(e) added to the Man.
