To No One’s Surprise, The Roseanne Revival Will be TERF TV

From EW:

Darlene’s son Mark (Ames McNamara) likes to dress up in girl’s clothing. But it would be wrong to assume the 9-year-old character is transitioning or is gay. We asked executive producer Sara Gilbert (Darlene) to explain why she created the role of Mark….

SARA GILBERT: He doesn’t. That’s something that got out in the press that’s not true. He’s not a transgender character. He’s a little boy. He’s based on a few kids in my life that are boys who dress in more traditionally feminine clothing. He’s too young to be gay and he doesn’t identify as transgender….

So, to recap: An obnoxious, Trump-worshipping Roseanne Barr allows lesbian Sara Gilbert to create a 9-year-old character and defining said character in a way that insults LGBs (maybe Gilbert didn’t realize she was gay at nine – and I am not criticizing her if she claims that she didn’t; some people don’t but plenty – and probably far more – do) and erases trans people (most of whom realize that they are trans long before nine) in a way that only TERFs truly love.

One truly has to wonder if the character was not concocted in some sleazy law office in Maryland.

What made you want to create this character?
It represents the world.

No. It represents the obnoxious, Trump-worshipping Roseanne Barr’s TERF-on-steroids view of trans women.

At this point I’ll just pass along Toni D’Orsay’s response:

It is extremely bad. It means that we are going to have to go after this representation by attacking the thoughts and ideas that support it, especially since it will rely, in part, on the desistance myth, and will function in direct opposition to all the science…

… while still allowing folks for whom this is real to exist.

Yes, they explicitly say he isn’t a trans character, but do you think the media will be able to project that nuance, and do you you expect the very subtle transphobia of Barr to not be involved?

The only part of that I disagree with is her description of Barr’s transphobia.

It is anything but subtle.

When Maryland finally went back and added trans people to its trans-genocidal 2001 gay-only rights law in 2014, Dana Beyer rewarded the gay sponsor of that 2014 bill, Rich Madaleno, with a primary challenge.

I had questioned Madeleno’s sincerity on trans issues a few years earlier, but he put that questioning to rest in 2014.  He deserved – and still deserves – the respect of the trans community for delivering something that his state’s viciously transphobic gay elite had stolen from trans people thirteen years earlier.  Sadly, he immediately had to deal with a Trans Jester whose raison d’être is, on the political evolutionary ladder, one rung removed from “Dilly, dilly!”

I leave it to you to surmise in which direction.

Beyer is a clown who has infected trans politics for far too long – and has only been able to do so because of wealth.  No one deserves to be rewarded with a Senate seat because of a penchant for wasting money on vanity political campaigns that, in the long run, have harmed the trans community. Dana Beyer is Harold Stassen without the political technicality of having actually once held office and Caitlyn Jenner without the technicality of having once been briefly legitimate enough to snag an Olympic gold medal.

A Suggestion for Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton

Dear Gov. Dayton,

You probably don’t remember me.  I bumped into you at the Minnesota State Fair in 2001 while you were a senator.  I mentioned that I had voted for you in 2000 and I asked you to ensure that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act was trans-inclusive.

You weren’t able to do that, but I’ve always thought highly of your response when I explained why the bill was not then trans-inclusive and, as of 2001, never had been.

“Shame on Barney.”

Straight (no pun intended) to the point.  I like that.

I’ve respected you ever since.

I have an idea for how you can ensure that your political legacy is even more positive than it currently stands to be. Due to circumstances beyond your control, you have the power to cause future-senator Roy Moore to have an aneurysm (politically if not physically) before ever being elected next Tuesday.

How?

Appoint Minneapolis Councilmember-elect Andrea Jenkins to fill Al Franken’s soon-to-be vacant Senate seat.

Its just an idea – but I hope you will consider it.

Sincerely,

That Still-Underemployed Transsexual Lawyer You Impressed Back in 2001
