If white privilege does truly exist, then surely this is it.
Meet Madison Godfrey! She tells us that being trans is not simply about transitioning from one gender to another, but rather about not aligning with the gender ‘assigned’ at birth. She also tells us that being transgender does not necessarily require undergoing medical procedures or hormone therapy.
In other words, trans means anything this hilariously self-involved young woman wants it to mean. “My transness is not about feeling uncomfortable in my body; it is about feeling uncomfortable with the gender that was allocated to this body. Although I was once assigned female at birth, on days when I wear winged eyeliner and a crop top that makes my boobs look great, I am still non-binary. “
It’s an audacious play, Miss Godfrey, but if you really want to dress the part, you should start thinking about a fur coat over a red jumper and a black and white chequered hat, because you’re a chancer.
And then there is this via RIPNutmeg: “After an "extensive recruitment process" based on "relentlessly addressing under-representation", Queen’s Theatre has appointed new creative directors.
What could this incredibly diverse team possibly look like?
Aisling Gallagher (lower right), whose father is a professor at Oxford, identifies as ‘circumgender’, which makes her a woman who identifies as a man who identifies as a woman. Is she providing the advertised diversity? Because maybe I need a new prescription for my glasses but that team sure looks like a bunch of comfortable white people all around the same age.
It was a long old fight, but well done to middle-class white people for making it back to the top.
Here’s Moley’s take on Madison.
I would like to take this opportunity to announce my new pronouns for the rest of the month...
Wonderful post Glinner! I laughed out loud.
