Hey Tumblr - Here’s a video of Ten Men Women Have Warned Me Against Becoming, a poem that I originally posted here in April as part of my 30/30 challenge, then took down after it got plagiarized heavily by another person on Tumblr. Hooray for intellectual property on social media!
I’m hoping to get a better video of this poem in the next few months, but I’ve been sitting on this piece for a while and I’m ready to put it out there.
I’m so appreciative of the 3000+ folks who liked/reposted the original draft, and those who have followed my writing since. I hope you enjoy this iteration of Ten Men. You helped give this poem life.
Thanks to B.F. for the video!
ps - I’ve also added this to my “Performance Videos” page
check it out dudes this is the (very stunning) impetus for my Ten Women poem i worry about him a lot bc i think people expect him to be antifeminist when in reality he is very feminist and lovely and an excellent speaker - not to mention a rad as heck poet!!!!
