As a twanzflemminist, I am very concerned with the tragic, unfair, sad, issues facing twanzwomen everywhere. Today I want to address “passing”.
Before I address the issue of passing, I should outline my twanzflemminist activist creds, here is a picture of me at a recent Pride Parade:
I know, I know! Before you say how well I, Stephanie Louanne Floo-Floobelle passes – particularly standing right next to one of those sissie-women – you must spare a thought for our uglier, plainer twanzsisters who do not pass as well as I do:
I know, I know! Poor things, they can’t help it if they have no sense of style or femininity like I have. Nor can they help it if they are as plain as a brown paper bag. Look, I really cannot help it that I pass so well, here is me around the house with a few friends about to drop by for afternoon tea:
And it was only a casual get-together too, but that is no reason to be frumpy! Even when I go down to the local pub for drinks-with-parasols in them, I make sure I look my best:
Notice that at home, having an aperitif before going out, I still use a straw. I tell you, this femininity thing just happens for me, it is no effort.
Even my friend Priscilla St John knows how to dress to make the most of her feminine assets:
So yes, Priscilla and I feel very very sorry for our twanzsisters who do not pass as well as we do.
To address this burning issue facing twanzwomen everywhere, who do not have the good fortune to be graced with the innate sense of style and femininity as we have, Priscilla and I are going to start a Foundation for this very important cause, to help our uglier tranzsisters. I know, I know! We are so philanthropic and generous, as well as being so blessed by naturally passing so well.
So I will leave my less fortunate twanzsisters something to aspire to:
Remember my unfortunately plain and non-passing tranzsisters; go through life with style and grace to be in touch with your inner woman!
