School House Mock? Too much? Not enough?

 

These bills are killing trans kids and no one seems to think about it that way. 

 

Protect the children? Whose children? Where? What? When? Why? How?

How about let's stop selling and killing kids at the border first.

Republicans seem to focus on clickbait topics and turn them into policy, which is what they're always blaming us for. Meanwhile back at the ranch, real trans people are really suffering.

 

Trust trans kids. Believe trans kids. Stop doubting, stop questioning, stop harassing trans youth.

 

We can't protect them from everything, but these bills need to go. If any of this shit sticks on the fan, it will blow into other areas. The transphobia will snowball.

Non-Binary Blues

I've beyond had it.

If I hear one more person say they want to 

"Look more Non-binary"

I'm gonna flip my lid

I've already flipped my lid ten times just this week--

There is tightness in my chest.

AIN'T NOBODY LOOK MORE OR LESS NON-BINARY THAN ANYBODY ELSE

HOW TF YOU SUPPOSED TO LOOK NB

WHY ARE YOU PUTTING SO MUCH PRESSURE ON EVERYBODY 

Also some of us don't want to conform

To your ideas of gender, so

What happens to us and them!?!?

What about looking like a man makes you

Less non-binary than looking like a woman?

Vice versa?!?!?

I've been under the impression this whole time, that we are supposed to be

Fighting gender norms--Not gatekeeping them.

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.

Whoa there Joey Gugliemelli... whoa. Controversy! Drama! HBO special series Bulk!!!! Maybe a bit too good of a drag queen...? You give love a bad name, Joey! Becky is reeling, in more than one way. Only Ru Paul gets under my skin this much, I swear to hell. 

 

I love love loved improvising my own version of talking heads naive melody. fitting.

Also evil woman!!

I missed making the podcast! more to come during the pandemic, no worries!

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.

Hey Everybody! Becky here with another episode of Mad About It, featuring special guest Zac!They are a friend of mine from high school that I haven’t seen or spoken with SINCE THEN! It’s nuts! It’s also kind of embarrassing, we catch up and talk at the same time. Honestly might be my favorite episode of the podcast yet. It’s a reunion, with a therapy session, a bit of comedy, and some seriously heartfelt advice mixed in throughout. OH—And it’s about how to survive the holiday season as a queer person in Trump country. We both have trumping parents, and it’s a bit different to be queer and be related to proud-straights. I overshare intensely. All of it is a bit intense. I love it. follow us on facebook and twitter  @beckywtghmai

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.

We are back with the second episode of the music series!! Teleporting back to the 1920's, we talk about the women of blues. These brave women freed our souls for rock and roll, and Elvis took all the credit. What a jackass, amirite. We talk about Mamie Smith, Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, Billie Holiday (just because duh), Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Memphis Minnie, Anita O'Day, Big Mama Thornton, and a little bit of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan just because I couldn't help myself.

Stay tuned for MANY MORE EPISODES of the music series. We have SO MANY PLANNED. A whole episode dedicated to Dolly Parton, a whole episode dedicated to Tegan and Sara. There will be a Country Queers episode guaranteed. The next episode is going to cover more lady killers who kill me, but from the 1945-1960 time frame. 

Here is the link to the Indiegogo page for SLH's new film endeavor, "Chemistry Eases the Pain"!

I have a lot of "sexuality" episodes. This one is somehow nothing like the others. We talk about everything from Logan Paul to John Locke. Time to get ENLIGHTENED, YA'LL. Self-concept here we go. Nah forreal I think sexuality is one of the most important subjects we could talk about. So, I ranted about it for an hour. Am I factual? Am I correctical? MMmhmmm ok sure. Are fruit loops made with fruit? It's surprisingly not at all dirty. I don't think I ever even talk about genitals or gonads. Very little mention of weenies. I do tell a rather upsetting and boring story about a straight white guy with an anal obsession. It isn't exactly the most uplifting episode, but it also kind of IS the most uplifting episode. Who even knows with this, ya'll.

Next up is another episode of the music series, but I also have a lot of other episodes planned. Will make them when I have the time. It takes like, four-hundred times more time than you think it does to do one of these thingies.
