The Minority Report on Bobrisky, the Trans Identity and Transphobia

The Minority Report on Bobrisky, the Trans Identity and Transphobia

Homophobia and transphobia are really not the same. Homophobia is rooted in moral disgust, and gay rights activism is saying that your moral disgust is not sufficient grounds to proscribe for another person what their life should be.

Of course, a lot of transphobia still comes down to that same moral disgust.

But there are also legitimate concerns. You cannot conflate everything, anything that is a question at all to transphobia. That’s just a totalitarian thing to do.

The hosts of TMR investigate the line between critical thinking and transphobia.

Check on it.

    Braingasm achieved!!!

    I loved every minute of it.
    Especially the part that addressed the Akwaeke Emezi and Women’s Award thing. I mean, Akwaeke Emezi identifies as gender non-binary. How and when did that start to equate to female?

    As for Bobrisky, I’d only start to pay attention to his attention seeking ass when he learns that being female goes far beyond hair, clothes and makeup. There’s a world of difference between between a drag queen and a trans person.
    Bob unfortunately just straddles that line of stupid on the matter, strutting like a peacock on his stupidity.

      LOL please leave Bobrisky alone. Bobrisky is a pre-op trans woman. You can see it even without lenses. She owes no one explanation about her gender identity. Believe people when they tell you they are this or that, there are genderfluid people who switch gender roles like panties and they are valid. They’re only responsible for themselves, they’re not responsible for yourself discovery, acceptance or validation … You know yourself better and only you can tell how you feel from the inside. Gender identity is a spectrum. “We are all born naked, everything other thing else is drag” Mummy RuPaul.
