I’ve really about had enough.

First I’m watching Bob’s Burgers, good Tina episode, but I just couldn’t keep watching when I figured out the story revolved around Bob being a pimp for trans woman to make money. So I said fuck it, let’s try a different show, HIMYM is pretty benign, how about that. Nope, first joke was Ted making sure a woman that was hitting on him didn’t have a penis. Okay, slightly annoyed, I pick a random episode of American Dad, because why not it’s a serviceable show at worst, but nope. This was the newspaper gag.

I just… Three in a fucking row. And people keep trying to insist that “I’m just looking for these things they can’t be everywhere!” It is! Community, Futurama, actually pretty much everything on Comedy Central, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 30 Rock, it’s fucking everywhere. It’s inescapable unless you’re watching directly queer-targeted media, and even then we’re usually still a punch line or a reason for a skinny white gay man to snap and say “hay gurl”. 

You, the people out there that talk all this shit about “oh ~twanz people complain so much it can’t be that bad”, just don’t notice it because that’s the only way trans women have been presented to you: we’re either fat, ugly, hairy, man-ish yet somehow genderless blobs in a dress “haha point and laugh”-types, or we’re sex workers. Usually both. (also avert your eyes and make a startled noise, poor you having to lay eyes on such an undesirable.)
