Response to fizzgig (Reply #62)

Fri Jun 5, 2015, 01:54 AM

66. Hi fizzgig, I hope I can explain....

I guess it sounds like I'm othering her, though that's not my intent. I'm good with anyone who has the guts to commit to how they experience their Self.

I've mentioned several times upthread that what I'm actually criticizing is the Media Response (and thusly, one of a number of various social group responses.)

I see the response is much more accepting, friendly, admiring, approving of a glamorous, positive image of her, Caitlyn.

Now, what vocabulary can I use to make clear that MY issue is that conventionally mocking responses towards OLDER WOMEN are clearly acceptable...very different than accepting responses toward fabulous trans and drag queens.

Progressive and other trans positive responses aren't extended to women of that age who want to define themselves as fabulously self-accepting.

I'm not sure...am I getting my point across? ....not sure if I'm explaining the difference as I see it. And why I think it's significant.

What can I say? I'm chilling out before bed.....hope I'm making sense!
