Sometimes Sisterhood isn’t Powerful Enough to Overcome the Gag Reflex

For the most part I think WBTs and MBTs are pretty neat cool people although some are frightfully messed up.  I’m not talking about the mentally messed up embracers of AGP or those who espouse ultra right wing racist or woman hating crap.

I can understand  getting trapped by drugs and or booze.  Been there done that.  That comes from being an abused child growing up into being an abused adult.  Most don’t manage to get clean and sober the way I did and that’s a pity.

No!  I’m talking about those few sisters who polymorphize themselves into bizarre experiments in plastic surgery, caricatures of combining exagerated objectified and hypersexualized physical attributes together.

This isn’t strictly something done by WBTs although the motivation for this particularly scolding piece is a particular WBT.

In the 1980s I encountered  Sulka, a walking blob of liquid silicone injections and strange plastic surgery.  She was more of an embarassment than half the transgender people I’ve met.

I had this deep revulsion and fear that people would look at this collection of body modifications and think that was what I too was about.

Now we have Amanda Lapore.  Yuck…  I’d rather be photographed hugging Monica Helms or Autumn Sandeen, who at least have positive intent even if they push the transgender thingie to the point of erasing women with a history of transsexualism from public consciousness.

We worked so long and so hard to be taken seriously only to have this freak get labeled as the #1 transsexual.

The only positive thing I can say about her is that if that is what the public thinks we are about it makes total stealth easier for the rest of us.

    I did the Google search too and immediately went to the bathroom too be sick! I think the resemblance to the “Lady Penelope” puppet in “Thunderbirds” is quite striking!
    I have seen pictures of this nutcase before (with much the same reaction) and I really wonder where people’s heads are if they can really believe that is what “intersex transsexuals” are about; but then most of the general public think transgender is transsexual which is a version of gay if indeed they can think at all.

      This is why I have been known to say that I can actually take the same side as Monica Helm and Autumn Sandeen on matters such as inclusive ENDA and Hate Crimes laws as well as housing rights, medical access and a whole slew of commonly shared working class issues easier than people who have had SRS only to become walking freak shows.

    Oh goddess… my first thought was, she looks like a cross between Marilyn Monroe and Jessica Rabbit. Honest to god those were my first words. Then to learn from a segment on the Insider that she was actually AIMING for that look… it was PRECISELY what she had in mind, not a side effect of one too many surgeries.

    I mean, JR is a CARTOON CHARACTER for pete’s sake. I just don’t get it. But, to quote the old saw, an it harm none…

    Harm none…

    Oh dear, all I can say is I hope she publicly identifies as part of the transgender umbrella.

  5. Hypatia's Child Says:

    Of course, I was referring to her choice of surgeries… NOT her snuggling up the media and basking in her “New York’s most famous transsexual” status.
