Managed to kindly, professionally, and successfully catheterize a fully erect grown man without any embarrassment.
Pretty proud of myself.
Believe it or not, it’s delicate situations like these that makes me love my job. Cuz it gives me a chance to prove to myself what I’m capable of.
I snap selfies
Thanks for helping me out, Tré. I don’t think I quite did the point justice because I am terrible at arguing, especially with my mom and sister, but you helped immensely. As I am not a trans woman, I feel uncomfortable acting like a valid source of information for what is and is not transmisogynistic and why, so having you to back me up was really really helpful.
Thank you, my dear! You are a gem.
Responding to Tré
My mom argues that Ellen is making fun of the fact that Liza Manelli is the most famously impersonated woman and often by men in drag so the joke is simply that Liza was not actually Liza but a man pretending to be her which is only funny because it’s she’s so commonly impersonated. The fact that Ellen chose the impersonator to be a man is only funny because of the frequency of that happening, not because it’s a man in a dress.
I think that my mom as an individual doesn’t take the man in drag part of the joke as funny or as supposed to be funny because my mom doesn’t find such things funny, but that others can interpret it that way and that’s what’s important.
Any thoughts anyone?
Trying and failing to explain why the Liza Minelli joke was trans misogynistic. My mom insists it wasn’t. Help?
I think I identify as a nonbinary girl.
Omg yes please thank youuuuu
in a considerable amount of physical pain from this cough. ribs on my left side hurt so bad. trying to cure it with ibuprofen, weed, and roommate-suggested whiskey in tea.
gonna try to distract myself with dungeons and dragons character work.
it requires a lot of research when you absolutely know nothing about the game besides the dice and the fact it’s an rpg, okay?
