In Family guy's defense, after Quagmire went through all that, he did manage to emphatize with his dad and accept her as who she is. Also Euphoria has one of the better takes on transgender experience , that character is also played by a trans woman in that show.

Almost all of my views oppose yours, but I sincerely enjoy watching your videos and I respect your views. Thanks again for being so calm and clear in your explanations. I feel like I understand opposing views a lot better when they come from people like you instead of twitter or fanatics.

The most effective aspect of the trans rights movement is that it's directed public attention from the end of Constitutional government at the hands of pharma-Pentagon neo fascists and the unprecedented level of poverty and homelessness afflicting millions of Americans.

"Causes" and "victims" embraced by corporate media is manipulation of the masses. It's a 3 D chess game of directing the collective psyche in the direction powerful people need us to go.

So basically JK is a terrible sexist who equals men with rape, and, since she is refusing to accept trans women as women, projects that misoandria onto them?

hi, i'm a trans :) i put off watching this video for a long time, but today i finally watched it because i love lindsays work and i wanted to hear her thoughts on the topic. i'm 30 minutes in and it's getting..... increasingly difficult to continue watching. she wasn't kidding about it being a lot to watch these scenes back to back to back. it's so easy to forget that this is what the world thinks of me.

"Transphobia" literally means "fear of change", so the construction of the word isn't done correctly. Also, this whole "phobia" idea needs to die so entertainment can be proper again, and this will happen once Twitter no longer exists.

Media is a subliminal dictator. It decides morality and urgency. Flint, where mass murder occurs daily has alarmed no Left bleeding heart, not even the easily personal health panicked bougie over poisoned water that specifically attacks the brain. Whereas the cosmetic issues of a minuscule fraction of the population wealthy enough to afford pricey and incapacitating surgical services has started "a revolution".

Rather amusingly Mickey Spillane's Vengeance is Mine has at the end when Mickey Spillane's psychopathic Detective Mike Hammer kills "Juno" an incredible example of a "Gay Panic" killing. Un-knowingly it appears to Mickey Spillane his "hero's" reaction shows very distinctly utter rage at feeling attracted to someone who turned out to be actually a man. I should also point out "Juno" is more of a Gay Drag Queen than either a Transsexual or Transvestite.

When the mainstream took hold of this trans culture-movement, I became immediately suspicious. So I started familiarizing myself with the community and the mainstream's true motive. Trans culture is the evolution of misogyny. The problem the bougie Left has is that it sees the monopolizing of ideas by the corporate mainstream as "progress". Profiundly naive.

I want to believe that the Brian Griffon puke reaction was an attempt at a meta-joke, making fun of the standard "omg I was attracted to a trans?!?" reaction. Unfortunately, in order to believe that, I still must admit that it was not well executed. It could've been fixed pretty easily: Puke stops, Stewie: whoa, what was all that about?!? Brian: Oh, you didn't know? That's the required reaction any time a straight male discovers that they were attracted to a person born with a Y chromosome. Stewie: Well that seems rather arbitrary! Brian: You'll understand when you're older. Stewie: You know what? No, I don't think that I will.

I may be too charitable i my interpretation, but I always thought that in Family Guy the joke was more about Brian's overreaction than about trans "deception". The fact that the scene goes on for a full minute means, to the viewer, that it just goes on for too long. You can't stretch what is basically one single frame for an entire minute, it's not acceptable in film language because it's too long... unless you want the viewer to feel that, to feel that it is just too long, that it is an exaggeration. That's the joke, that it goes on for that long. You see that Brian had sex with her, he never realized that she was a trans which means the fact was completely undetectable, he clearly had fun... why would he make such a fuss about it? I think that the joke's on Brian, the common straight man, and on his clearly fragile sense of masculinity, rather than on Quagmire's father.

I trust cishet drag queens in women’s spaces more than I’d ever trust WASP (and WASP adjacent) women in those same spaces tbh. It’s already happened that trans women, feminine leaning non-binary people, and cis women who don’t perform femininity the way they’re expected to have been attacked (mostly in bathrooms) by cis women who believe in this reactionary shit like JK does. (Spurred on by the part about a self identified man in a wig is a danger)

A stat like transgender women, housed with men in prison, are *13* times more likely to be sexually assaulted than male prisoners is especially terrifying when you stop and think how many males are sexually assaulted in prison.

Also, currently watching this again, and on the day Florida passed it's stupid bill that requires student genital inspections before joining sports teams to make sure they're joining the "right" gender designated team. So...GOP...the party that's always pushing for minimal government interference in people's lives is at it again with that stupid asterisk that reads: "With the exception of women being allowed to make their own choices about their own bodies and also now we need to have a doctor inspect your genitals and verify the biological sex you were born with because God doesn't make mistakes...or make sure we don't have girls joining boys teams because they FEEL like they're a boy trapped in a girl's body, and vice versa." At a time in life when most people are still at times trying to figure out their sexuality. Think of the children indeed.

Transvestites are people who wear the opposite gender's clothing for sexual pleasure. Transgenders are people who don't identify with their birth sex. Transexuals are people who have made an attempt to reaffirm their gender that did not correspond to their birth sex. Transwomen are women. Transmen are men. People are the gender they want to be. Sex is unchangeable but ultimately worthless. Gender is fluid. Homophobia and transphobia are basically racism against LGBTQ+ people.

Holy terror, Batman! It really is like watching Kent Hovind! And, as with Kent Hovind, there will always be people who believe them...

I don't know if I'm too late to say this or not but dos anyone remember that one episode of criminal minds where there was a killer that had suffered with multiple personality disorder? See, the guy himself was "normal" he had a pretty well paying job and lived well, he was just a bit "troubled" while his other personality was a woman who was very sadistic and at the end one of the agents confront him as his psychotic "girl" persona and the agent was all like "let him be Free" and the guy happened to be wearing lipstick and gaudy jewelry and all the works and I couldn't remember what he said to the agent but I do wonder if making the evil side of this guy the "girl/buffalo bill" persona was intentional? I doubt anyone will see this but I had to bring this up. See ya!
