Passing as a Woman

Ally of the Year 01

Bruce Jenner had no idea the “minefield” he stepped into when he decided to “pass as a woman.”

The slightest “deviation” from approved language or thought lands you in deep “trouble” with the paladins monitoring the ramparts of the “new normal.”

Jenner placed seventh in Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” and offered an interview to the magazine in which he said he tried to project a “good image” for the trans community.

What did he “mean” by that?

“One thing that has always been important for me, and it may seem very self-absorbed or whatever, is first of all your presentation of who you are. I think it’s much easier for a trans woman or a trans man who authentically kind of looks and plays the role. So what I call my presentation. I try to take that seriously.”

“I think it puts people at ease. If you’re out there and, to be honest with you, if you look like a man in a dress, it makes people uncomfortable. So the first thing I can do is try to present myself well. I want to dress well. I want to look good. When I go out, as Kim says, you’ve got to rock it because the paparazzi will be there. The second thing I want to do in living my life authentically is be intelligent on the subject. Hopefully as time goes on I’ll learn more and more and more and get better at that.”

That was “enough” to set off trannies “alarm” bells.

“Queer Latino” writer Matthew Rodrequez, at Identities.Mic wrote,

“Jenner is essentially talking about the idea of ‘passing’, which is not always the goal of every transgender person. The pressure to ‘pass,’ to fit society’s idea of what a cisgender man or cisgender woman looks like, weighs heavy on many trans people.”

Jenner was “scolded” for having the “resources” to at least roughly “resemble” a woman.

The “condemnatory” tweets came “fast and furious”

“Yep. Caitlyn Jenner is becoming outright harmful to trans women.” https://t.co/xijrvoaQlj — Sophia Banks (@sophiaphotos) December 12, 201

“I just read that article with Caitlyn Jenner saying trans women have to try as hard as possible to appease cis folks. Not look like men. SMH” — Sophia Banks (@sophiaphotos) December 12, 2015

“Caitlyn Jenner is pretty much attacking low income trans women and women like me who are visibly trans. Reminds me of 90’s websites I read” — Sophia Banks (@sophiaphotos) December 12, 2015

“Not here for Caitlyn Jenner saying you appease cisnormativity or you are a failure. Fuck that. Everything I stand against as a trans woman” — Sophia Banks (@sophiaphotos) December 12, 2015

“Fuck Caitlyn Jenner and her shitting on other trans women. I’m DONE with her reality TV media time suck bullshit.” https://t.co/gsDjbERSFW — Mari Brighe (@MariBrighe) December 11, 2015

It may take a while for new “trannies” to get the hang of “acceptable” lingo.

Chastity Bono, now living as a “man” named Chaz, got into a “spat” with Kathlyn Elizabeth Beatty, the “daughter” of Warren Beatty and Annette Benning, now living as a “man” named Stephen Ira.

Bono compared his “transgenderism” to being born with a “cleft” palate.

Stephen Ira Beatty calls himself “a trans man, a faggy queen, a homosexual, a queer, a nerd fighter, a writer, an artist and a guy who needs a haircut.”

Stephen Ira Beatty “wrote” on his blog,

“I do not have a birth defect. If you feel like you have a birth defect, fine. That’s how you feel. Go feel that. Do not put it onto me. Do not define me that way, and do not define other trans people that way unless they claim that label.”

The new “transgender” world is a forever a “changing” mine-field.
