Just ranting honestly

I have other episodes planned, I announce them

I don't have anything scripted for this episode it's just

Completely off the handle.

I am sorry I haven't been making as many episodes, I've been

More than a bit preoccupied, so keep that in mind

If you want to cancel me-- it's okay--

I have plans anyway.

Have you read this?

JK Rowling Writes About Her Reasons For Speaking Out on Sex and Gender Issues

Like, actually read it?

I'm being serious--

Did you read someone else's opinion on Twitter

Before you made your own...?

Really actually read all 12 pages

Then join me for this episode. 

She has become radicalized in the last few years, all because of twitter!

She quotes all of the biggest features of TERF ideology, and stirs fear over bathrooms.

She says things most all people consider to be transphobic. 

She is clearly being a provocateur, but why? Perhaps maybe because she has been harrassed nonstop for her limited understanding of sex and gender?

She has had to self-educate now, and is only listening to TERF's about gender politics. She is responsible for her beliefs and her decision to quote famous TERF writers and leaders. Trans people are also responsible for how they have reacted to her twitter over the years. She has become a target for abuse, and I don't want to be associated with that sort of "activism".

 

Perhaps saddest of all, is that JK Rowling refers to all of her online abuse as "trans activism". I do not advocate for such speech. 

 

SADDER THAN THAT is how many fans I have lost because I don't want to villainize her further than she has villainized herself! It is not enough for me to simply disagree with JK Rowling, I must degrade her--otherwise I'm not really a trans advocate!

 

What fucked up version of the twilight zone am I living in???

How am I living such a beautiful life surrounded by feminist trans people, but online--it's a different universe?

 

https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2020/03/12/gender-recognition-bill-scotland-public-consultation-transgender-rights-non-binary-ally/

here is the gender recognition bill in scotland that Rowling is so terrified of. I don't understand her fears, as the legislation is still strict--still imposes limitations on transition. None of her fears in her treatise are verifiable.

Hey Everybody! I love the L Word SOOOOO MUCH. The original series is so important to baby Becky. Generation Q is getting me really excited and I really hope they deliver more serious drama for many more seasons!!!

 

Where the hell is Max? More importantly, where the hell is Max's baby!?!?!

Why is Bette a cheater, and Tina isn't?!

Is Jenny really dead!?!? Was she murdered ? Was it suicide? 

I think Nikki did it TBH she was so weird

My thoughts on the theme song are in the episode...

My version of the theme song is in the episode...

LMFAO there is no theme song to Generation Q because they got burned so bad they stopped having a theme song entirely.

This music series is a mix of the hits of 2019, and then a few things I found in 2019, which is not necessarily the same as them being from 2019. Oops, oh well! It’s a killer playlist, features Lil Nas X, MUNA, King Princess, Christine and the Queens, Litany, Verzache, Kylie Minogue, Charlie XCX.

If you're wondering where Halsey, Troye Sivan, and everyone else is, it's because they are on the old playlists OR they are on an upcoming playlist. Message me if you need to be certain that I know who you know. Check us out on facebook and twitter @beckywtghmai

I do not go too much into detail with the artists, they are all pretty new. I forgot to mention that Lil Nas X’s real name is Montero Lamar Hill, which is gorgeous. Damn. Opportunity missed. I really should stop rushing the music series. Honestly? The playlist is what I spend the most time on. It’s very good, here is a link!

Life's not fair I guess. I also kinda don't think she is one. I think Maya whatsername is for sure but like--JK Rowling!?! The creator of my childhood? I can't with this, yo. I can't. I don't? I don't! Hmmm

 

I don't understand. Honestly the episode comes to zero conclusions. I bamble. I ramble. I bullshit and I stumble. I confuse myself often.

Becky breaks down Transtrenders and other myths and monsters. Spoiler alert--nobody is trendy. Except for like, the super trendy people I guess. There are so many stylish and trendy trans folk. But-- their gender isn't the trendy part.

Oy there is too much to reflect on so I had to just go ahead and talk about it.

It has been over a year since I started all this mess, and I am a bit blown away by how different things are. They are also weirdly exactly the same. It has been nuts.

 

The regular programming will resume once I’m able to do what I gotta do. There are lots of good things on the horizon. Thank you so much for everything.

 

Podcasting has been a weird journey, stick around and live it with me.

Pronouns! What are they? Who needs 'em? Why you gotta state 'em? Why do they matter?! Tune in, listen to me rant. I don't hit on everything, but I do hit on some things. 

 

Why would a cis person need to state their pronouns?

When would it be appropriate to ask someone their pronouns, and how?

What kinds of pronouns are there? (Full disclosure I do not elaborate on this LMFAO haha sorry I've been watching too much Batman and I am having some joker vibes rn)

I am not a grammar expert sorry yo

I do not go into the nitty gritty of linguistics

There are like

SO MANY GRAMMAR AND WORD AND LANGUAGE PODCASTS

You don't need me for that

Let me be different

Muah

 

Hey Everybody! We’re Celebrating Stonewall’s 50th anniversary like everyone else with a queer podcast on this earth. We’re doing it differently, cuz its my show not theirs. You will probably hate it, it's probably wrong, it's probably rude, it's probably offensive. I did my best. Shout out to the revolutionaries who paved the way for my loud, rude, queer ass to fuck it up. At least I didn't put vaseline on a float (this time)
