I'm just your average disabled, panromantic, transfeminine, gynephilic queer (and occasional bearded lady). I blog about stuff (but mostly reblog).
Doesn’t that mean they’ve now acknowledged that trans women don’t have male privilege because we’re facing misogyny?
Guys, I thought I was upset about something, but it turns out that it’s not a big deal. Phew!
Sincerely, though - I wanted to like The Michael J. Fox Show. I think it’s a great cast, a serviceable premise, and I’m rooting for NBC. Really. Heck, I bought the first two episodes on iTunes, sight unseen. Only to then watch the second episode and encounter a joke that not only mocks the very idea of my existence, but furthers the “trans panic” narrative and doesn’t even do so in a new and interesting way!
For real, it’s what, fifteen years since Joey’s “she had the biggest Adam’s apple” joke on F.R.I.E.N.D.S? Anyone want to argue that this brand new show is doing anything radically different from that joke?
You know what’s funnier than lazy, “lol throwaway trans reference ha ha” jokes? Almost every single trans woman I know - they’re some of the most insightful, piercing, hilarious, brutal, strong and resilient people I’ve ever met. They are miles more amusing and entertaining and brilliant than anything I’ve seen on TV and they’re awesome.
And yet we’re the ones who need a sense of humor? I think the rest of the world needs to start putting in some actual effort.
