Memo to Anti-Trans Legislators
You want to choose my gender.
You think I must surrender.
It's time for you to see
You're not the boss of me.

Memo to Anti-Trans Legislators is part of the poem series Felicitations by Felicia Nimue Ackerman. Ackerman is a professor of philosophy at Brown University and has had over 200 poems published in a wide range of places. We are lucky to get to have a few of them published right here at Options Magazine.
