I just clipped this story from Pam's House Blend. This is the uncut version of the TV ad that they are running. This makes my blood boil to think that these advertising people think this is funny. This whole ad just explodes with vile references and innuendos that suggest trans women are deceptive and criminal when they find relationships. I think it also suggests that some men are dumb and shallow and too quick to jump into bed with anyone without thinking. This is a slam against the great work done in the movie "TranAmerica". This idea just make it harder for all of us who are working desperately to bring respect and some humanity to our lives.
I agree with Pam's comments:
No commentary saying trans people are horrible, deceptive people there, whose transitions are "not for better," eh? Nice. I get tired of constantly having to defend my humanity to people who don't perceive me as fully human. Well guess what? I am fully human, and this commercial angers me.
