Doctors must have diagrams


Neat little boxes to check


Algorithms like

If has testicles, then male

Use His, Him, He

If not, then female

Use Hers, Her, She

If not….

Don't be silly

Hush, hush-you won't feel a thing

Uncheck a box with a quick scalpel swing

There we go


No one imagined me

They imaged dragons and bigfoot but not me

I have the same sex as a tree

The same gender as a flower or the sea

Doctor, check both boxes then unlock them

Writers, add a foot note in the margins

I am here

I am me

I am free

Zirs, zir, ze
