Something odd this way comes.
« on: August 03, 2014, 12:36:36 AM »
A friend sent me a video. I can't work out one aspect of it.

Now it's fairly safe for work, unless you are a member of the Westboro Baptists, so I am comfortable dropping the link here. If you don't want to watch, fine. It is a singularly beautiful woman transforming herself into a man.

Now, I have trans friends. Good friends. We've cried together, laughed together, got drunk together, got sober together, and at least one of them will take the 3 AM call and calmly ask if the shovel is needed and where. I don't judge about that. Genitalia means about as much as skin color, far as I am concerned. Friends are friends, end of.

I don't get the tattoos. As she washes, tattoos appear. Nice ink mostly, all credit to the artist involved, but my question is why? How are tats manly? More women than men have them anyway, and it is confusing the hell out of me.

In the space of 5 minutes 17 seconds, she goes from a very beautiful woman to a Central American pimp. Is that really how women see men these days?

What the hell went wrong?

silly
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

I've never been into tattoos, either, to be honest. I find them very distracting.

Sadly, indeed, a lot of women have them these days. It's hard to find one that doesn't find it necessary to have not only one, but multiple visible ones.

As for the gender-bender performances, I saw enough episodes of Sally Jesse Raphael back in the day to know that kind of thing doesn't faze me.

Possible. Shock art is not exactly new.

It's just the image of masculinity she's portraying that really bugs me. I mean - how many tats you got? I have two - my serial number under one armpit and my blood type under the other. Both of which are being removed very soon. Being covered in tattoos says more "confused" to me than confident in what you are.
