Brody Parrish Craig: “This poem is in response to the publication of ‘Sacred Androgen’ in Antioch Review. As a trans-man and a poet, this publication impacted me deeply. The essay that appeared in Antioch Review was strongly transphobic and not representative of what I personally see as my expression of gender, transition process, or need for medical transition. The piece that I have written attempts to reflect the anxiety and frustration that this article induced in me while simultaneously playing with language and queering language in a way that I feel embodies my personal thoughts on gender.” (website)
