by Thomas Page Mcbee

Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture - - TRACK CHANGES -

Re­lease Date: Au­gust 14

When trans writer Thomas Page Mcbee finds him­self train­ing for a char­ity box­ing match that will hap­pen at Madi­son Square Gar­den, he be­gins grap­pling with the in­tri­cate links be­tween the sport, vi­o­lence, and cul­tural per­cep­tions of mas­culin­ity. Mcbee uses box­ing as a lens to an­a­lyze a num­ber of dif­fer­ent is­sues, in­clud­ing go­ing to the gym as a trans man, learn­ing how to hit back, and how men can cre­ate a mas­culin­ity that is not pred­i­cated on op­press­ing oth­ers.
