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?

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.

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.

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.

Biphobia

God rest ye merry gentlethems

We talk some talk. Biphobia is the real deal! I go into some brief definitions and then some random anecdotes. Featuring some Miley Cyrus rants and an acknowledgment of Hemsworthiness. There might also be a lot of screaming. This topic is very sensitive, so I had to go full “why’d you say that” with it otherwise it would be boring.

 

I tried to stay away from the most basic cliches, but unfortunately most things of the best things in life are cliche.

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
