@51 Oh, and fuck your shitty caitlyn jenner joke.
I'm sooper glad you're spending time guessing what
our genitals look like. You could run for Senate
with that kinda thinking.

@51 Honestly, when a transperson tells you something is fucked up,
when the question is about something being transphobic, you should probably
heed it, like, a bit. There's enough cisgendered people telling me i'm wrong
in the world. Aside from that, I do comedy, I know these jokes, I have to hear them lots.
The reveal/turn is always the same, with the same lizard-brain reaction of challenged
manhood as a result. I clarified that the juxtaposition was different from every one of
the other ads. Betty White, Kenny G, Mr.T, Danny Trejo, all wore the clothing we
associate with them. The difference in this ad is calculated fer maximum "hilarity".
Still, getting back to this, I am a transgender woman. I really don't even have to
explain myself. I don't hop on the outrage bandwagon usually, I just was fucked off
that the poll was so far one way and clearly judged by a boatload of cisgendered
people. Much like where I use the bathroom is being judged by a boatload of
cisgendered people. It's almost, like, I maybe, kinda see this poll as being a clear
sign of what would happen if this bathroom business goes to ballot.

Yes. The other Snickers ads use the juxtaposition of the actor, in the situation of
another person that is polar opposite, to create humor. The difference between this ad
and, say, the Danny Trejo one, is the clothing. The other ads merely have the famous
person is a football huddle, or the brady bunch set, no costume change. This ad has
defoe there is intentionally a guy in a dress with the reveal that, "oh, that person you
thought was sexy...isn't!"That's a trope that needs to stop. If a group of guys is hollering
at a woman on the street, and she's revealed to be trans, that then leads to the feeling
like she was trying to trick those guys. That piled on with homophobia, escalates things
really quickly to violence. This kinda ad just keeps things moving along, reinforcing
the status quo, and that's shitty. We've had people attacked on our streets for challenging
gender norms.
The bottom line is, as a transwoman, I can tell you the pile of shitty images in media,
even on the EDGE of being transphobic, did not at all make me wanna come out.
The stuff that reinforces transwomen as predators, stems from all the way back with
Psycho, and is STILL prevalent in media. No help. Naw. None.

Agree with everything 76 said! Fuck yes!
Maybe, though, kinda, not use "mongoloid"
in helping defer a conversation about
shaming. That's like being for gun control,
but vowing to shoot everyone who's
against it.

Yes to all of this. I sooper agree about ab-soul too. I think he gets slept on. His slow-jams are extra swell as well. I'm more into hellfyre at the moment, but TDE does have a great crew right now. -a
