the letter z

Posted in Uncategorized by z on 2009-08-31

Okay, so I admit, I cave in and read Pam’s House Blend from time to time. Today, I was confronted with some horrid little expose about the increasing popularity straight male chasers and of trans woman porn.

Great.

Take a trans woman who already has a fragile sense of esteem and body image and then tell her that acceptance and tolerance for the greater community will not be made through the fact that she is a human being but rather that straight men will find her sexually attractive … one is left with only a sickened feeling in one’s mouth.

(As an aside, I am responding to the specific argument in the article and the ongoing sexualization of trans women, and not to the existence of porn and sex work — which is fine enough only if it is absolutely consensual — probably a discussion for another post)
