Friendly reminder that The Simpsons recently had an episode that portrayed trans women as men in dresses who are doing it solely to trick lesbians into fucking them. The Simpsons is a piece of shit and no better than Family Guy in my eyes.
OMFG I REMEMBER THAT EPISODE
when i was a kid i just went with it omfg they fed me so much shit ;A;
It’s pathetic as fuck. It aired back in 2005 I guess, I thought it was more recent but fuck it was horrible.
Simpsons transmisogyny goes way way back.
No, the character never was presented as trans*, he was presented as someone who cross-dressed to play in the WPGA. When exposed, he asked Patty to marry him as he was, as a man. That’s not a trans character, nor did they represent the character as being representative of trans* people.
Nobody does that. The idea that a man would disguise himself as a woman to lure a cis lesbian is the type of thing radscum perpetuate all the time to police trans women and demonize them and make them out to be men. Constantly, people see trans women as men in disguise or pretending to be women. In the picture of the beautiful women, the man said they “used to be men” obviously that means they are women and identify as women. The woman criticizing Marge’s hair and voice said that she was “turned inside out” by doctors, meaning she got bottom surgery. That’s not what cis male crossdressers do.
Also, trans women are constantly conflated with crossdressers and drag queens as a way of delegitimizing their genders. There are cross dressers in the media and ways of clearly presenting them as such without conflating them with trans women or being transmisogynist (I’m thinking of Haruhi’s father in Ouran Host Club). But it’s pretty clear that most of the women in that video are meant to be trans women, just offensively portrayed.
Further sh*m*le is a slur that is used numerous times in that video and people continually react with disgust in the video, which is transmisogynist. I don’t know how you can argue any different.
