Through essays, poetry, experimental writing, print images, and cartoons, the authors in Self-Organizing Men “break new ground in discussions about masculinity, power, white privilege, feminism and penises," say Sennett. "At the end of this book you realize that masculinity is more than just genitalia.”
"I created this book because there were few books that discussed masculinity in any real complex way, and I needed a book that discussed gender and race and childhood and penises," continues Sennett. "So I essentially created what I needed," he concludes.
Contributors include: Eli Clare, Scott Turner Schofield, Tim’m T. West, Dr. Bobby Noble, Nick Kiddle, Eli VandenBerg, Jordy Jones, Doran George, Aren Z. Aizura, and Gaylourdes.
