Masculine Birth Ritual

Sep 15, 2018

The interview today is with Vanya Hollis, a butch birth parent and high school science teacher. We talk about gender, conception, challenges in lactation, the politics of biological sex and the “need” for people to know, and parasites of the chosen variety. We also dig into feelings about queer community ethos vs. her and her partner’s social experience of having a new baby.
