Our F2T twanzicon here at TSR is the ever-public Chaz Bono, formerly Chastity, formerly a dyke, but now supposedly a manz in a het relationship. Pictured above in rehearsals for the TV programme, Dancing with the Stars.
Yesterday’s Daily Mail posted a story, vaguely on Chaz’ part in the programme, but mainly about her cheeze buying habits at a local supermarket.
It’s news!!! Yep, Chaz buys cheese! Now wait a minute, I don’t recall any other ‘news’ stories about anyone else buying cheeze, what’s going on? Well, reading the Chaz story, we find:
His professional dancing partner Lacey Schwimmer revealed last week that Chaz has managed to lose 5lbs in the first six days of rehearsals.
She told People magazine: ‘He’s lost five pounds in six days. It’s so great. He says he’s not eating any differently, he’s just dancing.’
The ample supply of cheese Chaz bought today, however, may not help him achieve a Kirstie Alley-style turnaround.
The former Cheers! actress, who made the finals in the last season of the show, shed a considerable number of pounds thanks to the extra exercise, coupled with healthy eating.
Ah, it’s about overweight celebrities losing weight on DWTS is it? Just like the two stone that (dumbass ‘sexologist’) Pamela Stephenson lost on the similar UK programme “Strictly Come Dancing”
Coincidentally, both Alley and Stephenson are about the same age, 60. You would think that women of 60 could just let it be, and let nature take its course, but apparently not, a 65yo great-grandmother gets breast augmentation and goes from an A to an F, so she can date males young enough to be her grandsons. Not just the boobs of course, women apparently have to watch for “nickles” (knee wrinkles) and go for surgery if, shock horror, their knees are wrinkly (and I thought I had heard it all). We pause a moment whilst I return my rolling eyes back into their sockets.
Yep, the news is full of it. We track celebrities to see what they are eating in order to ‘stay slim’ – and yikes, look at some of those calorie counts, well below 1,000 – that is starvation diet levels in order to ‘stay slim’. The ‘gold standard’ is the bikini body, and female celeb’s are constantly judged as to how well they look in a bathing suit. Woe betide any female celeb’ that doesn’t make the cut, even just months after the birth of a baby (sometimes I have even seen stories of weeks after).
Yet we never get the same level of body obsession reported in the meeja about male celeb’s, like Ricky Gervais (not far behind Chaz in terms of size)
Gervais could be Chaz’s brother, no?
Anyway, it is clear that meeja scrutiny is primarily reserved for females, and that same scrutiny filters down to all females on a day-to-day level.
Getting back to Chaz, so why the departure from ignoring overweight dudes?
It is because everyone, including the meeja, know and are treating Chaz fairly much like any other female. They know that this twanzjendah ‘manz’ thing is just baloney, and cannot help but to report on HER just as if she wasn’t wearing any ‘mansuit’. All this gender malarkey counts for shit, biological sex is where female oppression really resides, covered up by gender roles. Most F2Ts do the gender dress-ups in order to escape female gender roles. No way baby, you are stuck with it.
In the Chaz/DWTS story, they prattled how ‘he’ [sic] was the first transgender person on the show. In the same story, they mentioned David Arquette was also on the show. Damn, they could have gotten that other meeja-whore, DragQueen Arquette. And speaking of DragQueen Arquette, the man-standards of beauty critique are used here too. What born-female could get away with having such a horseface and not have it commented upon?
See. The standards of meeja reporting are along SEX lines, NOT gender lines.
The meeja don’t believe you. Neither do I.
M2Ts are treated differently to FABs and F2Ts.
We cannot escape our biology.
