Transgender representation has come a long way, so do these tropes still have a place in comedy? In this video, I discuss transphobia in comedy and offer up some great trans comedians to look out for. WATCH THE FULL VIDEO HERE CC provided! Can we PLEASE call transmisogyny what it is? Instead of generalizing it into transphobia, as if it isn’t specifically targeting trans women? “ transmisogynistic tropes have been a central part of contemporary comedy. “ Yes it does say it where. And yet on the actual post “transphobic” is what’s bolded and even the person in the gifs says transphobic instead of transmisogyny. They aren’t interchangeable. I am the woman in the gif set. People care about genitals though. That’s not even transphobic, that’s just basic human instinct. Of course, such as in the examples, people can handle the situation at hand more delicately and not be rude. These reactions are the result of us being told that “penis=boy and vagina=girl” our entire lives and it’s hard wired into our brains. No matter the amount of social justice reason you put into something to make someone feel like shit, it’s difficult to change something that’s set that deep into your brain. Not impossible, but extremely difficult. I’m sorry. I appreciate the fact that you can acknowledge that cissexism is a problem. What I don’t appreciate is how you can acknowledge socialization and then not acknowledge that these things can be deprogrammed. Though for the record, I’ve never struggled to find a date and I don’t really see the point in convincing or debating with someone why they should find me attractive. I’ve always had a blackbook full of options. I absolutely disagree that penis=boy/vagina=girl is hard wired into our brains. It’s information that has been systematically programmed into us (well, most of us) since we were born. It’s really not that hard to deprogram yourself from it, though. i said it once and i’ll say it again. When “Two and a Half Men” (I’ll repeat. when “Two and a half men”. “Two and a half men”) makes an episode about a trans character better than you, that’s not a good sign) I don’t wanna be messy, but someone on that show ( I wont mention names), is known to patronize trans escorts. The girls know so of course they might have made a decent episode about trans people. ( i haven’t seen it tho. i’m sure it’s trash)

Though for the record, I’ve never struggled to find a date and I don’t really see the point in convincing or debating with someone why they should find me attractive. I’ve always had a blackbook full of options. how sad is it that there are people out there who will acknowledge something is a serious problem but then shrug and say ‘well it’s too hard to change so I’m not gonna bother’ This ties in really well with the conversations that I’ve been having about allies who don’t actually want to work. Personally I don’t really waste my time discussing why straight men don’t like trans women- far too many of them have been in my life, in my dms and my contacts for me to really entertain it. I know some people don’t like what they don’t like- and that’s totally whatever to me-though I realize many people frame that as transphobic I’m a bit more indifferent to it BUT THAT BEING SAID, the reality is this is probably the sorta person that is totally cool with Caitlyn Jenner, but doesn’t really wanna deconstruct how we view sex/gender and genitalia in society. It’s a ‘well things are how they are” type reaction and that’s really shitty. it’s a lot easier to maintain the status quo and these people are lazy. And also to expand on this: way way way way way way more men out there like trans women than people realize. They may not admit it to you. They may noit state this publicly but trust me I have never struggled to find a man that was interested in me. Ever. Even in situations wheren men didn’t know at first and I told them later it was confusion, questioning, thinking about it for a minute and then not leaving me alone for years and begging me to entertain them. To be honest, these tropes fascinate me because trans women are extremely desired and cherished, but we frame them as though they are not. I have been with men in Hollywood, I’ve had brief affairs with politicians, professors, law enforcement etc. Men who like trans women are common and that’s reality. One day (maybe when I’m dead) people will acknowledge this. The reality is many men who are straight LOVE women but carry no real interest in vagina. Obviously not all, but quite a few do indeed feel this way. It’s not that they’re interested in penis, but rather they’re not really interested in vagina. I think we pressure men (and women) who identify as heterosexual to like a certain set of genitalia and I hate to break this to you, that’s just not the case for so many people
