Hi, my name is Chrysanthemum Tran and I'm a  writer.

Today I'm going to be sharing with   you a poem I wrote called, "I Don't Even  Like Sports." This poem poured out of me   at midnight a week after the Rhode Island state  legislature introduced an anti-trans sports bill. I was trying to make coherent how befuddling it is  for fascism to aim its things at trans girls and   trans women playing sports particularly because  I don't really know anything about sports and   beyond that the only sport I ever wanted  to do, gymnastics, was out of reach for me.
