What’s my fave tv show?
Well obviously a classic…
HISTORICAL PROOF OF TRANS PEOPLE AT ANY TIME EARLIER THAN THE FUCKING 1950S
HISTORICAL GENDER/GENDER ROLE DEVIANCE DISCUSSED IN A TRANS CONTEXT
HISTORICALLY FAMOUS AND IMPORTANT TRANS PEOPLE
this was written in 1322
i can’t imagine how hard it must have been struggling with gender shit back when physical transition was a total impossibility, even theoretically
i’m trying hard not to cry
we have a history. we have existed in every culture of the world at every moment of human history. cis institutions have tried to suppress this history or claim it as their own but it is not theirs. it is ours, and always will be. we must uncover and reclaim more of our history, and we must make more ourselves
yeah I REALLY DIDN’T SEE IT and i was worried that I was just being obtuse/blinded to it
my translation says smth along the lines of jesus saying “oh how nice you look like a hostess” so i thought there was some transphobic connotation there but i can’t find anything of the sort like
i think you need to look at how a joke about gender deviation is meant to be read and why you’re supposed to laugh if you want to think critically about transphobia in media
99.9999% of transphobic jokes are specifically about transmisogyny and the concept of someone male or perceived to be male doing something feminine as a joke
you have to look at a joke and ask yourself how is it trying to make me laugh what is supposed to be funny is it that gender deviation is funny is it that someone who is male or perceived to be so doing something feminine supposed to be funny or is there another aspect here that i’m supposed to be laughing at
now there’s jokes that don’t intend to be transphobic that still can be don’t get me wrong but i think with this the joke is really just oh that syrup stained his lips isn’t it annoying when something like that happens it’s hard to get out and embarrassing when people see it that’s it there are no other layers of context at play here unless you count jesus mentioning he looks pretty which isn’t even meant to be anything really malicious or funny just jesus being u know….nice..and innocent..,lmao idk
I WAS REALLY CONFUSED TOO. I was really worried about it and then I didn’t see anything of the sort
i think they were talking about the part at the festival when he gets like flavored ice syrup on his lips but there’s no joke at the expense of that it’s like oh oops doesn’t it suck when that happens u look pretty tho lmao like
gender role deviation isn’t transphobic breh it wasn’t a joke at gender deviation or trans ppl’s expense at all
ppl were like THE SAINT YOUNG MEN MOVIE IS TRANSMISOGYNISTIC so i avoided it and then it
wasn’t at all
what the fuck r u guys trying to pull
Just a friendly reminder:
When you say things like…
- "But you look so healthy!"
- "You look fine, though."
- "You never look sick.”
- "You seem fine to me!"
it comes across as patronising.
I know these words are meant to be encouraging and positive, but they come across as very demeaning to people with invisible illnesses.
What you’re trying to say is that you think we look great even though we are sick, which is a lovely sentiment, but when you express it in words like these, it sounds like you are belittling our illnesses and our experience.
Here are some ways you can word it a bit better…
- You look lovely today.
- You always manage to look amazing!
- You’re doing really well.
Thanks a lot. (:
(Please feel free to add your thoughts to this - I know I am missing out a lot!)
"You’re doing really well" would be a particularly helpful compliment especially since most of us are always giving 110% to function like a healthier human being. If I look okay it is usually because I am putting every last ounce of energy into trying to look presentable, perhaps a little out of vanity because I don’t want people to worry or judge me.
big boss’ slow painful descent into fuckin madness illustrated from peace walker to ground zeroes to phantom pain has set itself at a good time coinciding with the slow painful deterioration of a friendship of someone so important to me that i shared metal gear with when i was about 16
it also coincides to the rampant and violent blossoming of my full on gay tendencies because i would fuck phantom pain big boss in a heartbeat
You don’t know the truth yet. But sooner or later you’ll have to choose. I don’t expect you to forgive me. But you can’t defeat me, either. You know me too well.
