Jeffrey Tambor as a trans woman on Arrested Development

Arrested Development scraps Jeffrey Tambor’s transition storyline, cause awkward

I’m still celebrating Jeffrey Tambor and Eddie Redmayne losing for playing trans women at the still incredibly transmisogynistic Golden Globes last night (here’s my take on Jared Leto’s win a couple years ago). But that’s not the only recent trans news about cis men out of Hollywood.

Gervais

Dear Ricky Gervais, trans women are not a joke

Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes again last night, marking the 4th time he’s hosted the awards. Gervais hosting was not without controversy, given some of his less than savory jokes over the years. It wasn’t 20 seconds into his monologue, that he cracked a joke about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition, and women driving, both of which were tasteless.

Jill Soloway and Caitlyn Jenner

On Jill Soloway, Caitlyn Jenner, and the trans representation the media wants

A number of articles critiquing comments Caitlyn Jenner has made about trans people have been published recently. An all too familiar pattern of media representation of trans women is playing out on a more high profile stage than usual:

Daily Feminist Cheat Sheet

As other GOP candidates try to distance themselves from Trump’s transparently fascist positions to make themselves look better in comparison, Mike Huckabee has made it clear his problem with Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering the US is that it doesn’t go far enough because, “If you’re willing to strap a bomb to the belly of your child to kill Americans, then you’re willing to lie about your religion.”

What “I Am Cait” gets wrong about trans suicide

This past week there were a lot of dismal “I told you so”s fluttering around social media with the (entirely staged) revelation that Caitlyn Jenner holds odious views on welfare recipients, repeating the dependency myth and suggesting they have no incentive to find other income sources.

Feministing Jamz video of the week: The Body Electric by Hurray for the Riff Raff

In another case of a video which should have made the best of 2014 list but came out shortly after the list was published, we have “The Body Electric” by Hurray For The Riff Raff. The video and song, which tackle racist, gendered, and transmisogynist violence — while managing to be gorgeous at the same time — shook me to my core.

Fear, perhaps more extremely than any other emotion, motivates people to make some strange and terrible decisions. Prejudice is very often such a decision. I disagree with those who want to abandon words like homophobia or transphobia: fear can make no rational sense and though it never excuses horrific decisions, it can explain them.

Transphobia is particularly apt when discussing the prejudicial attitudes of some cisgender feminists towards trans women. The idea ...
