On a slightly less surreal, but possibly more absurd note than the trainwreck that is VWHC’s trans exclusionary policy comes this report in the Vancouver (where else?) section of Xtra West (link here).
See, us trans women, we’re so speshul™ that we even get our own speshul™ underwear now.
So, assuming that you’ve been able to find a pharmacist who’s been willing to sell you your prescribed hormones, you may well find that sooner or later you’ll need to buy a bra. Isn’t nature wonderful? Now, I don’t know about anybody else, but I usually buy mine from the lingerie department of a certain well-known high street chain store. They’re nothing speshul™, nothing fancy, just plain ol’ common-or-garden everyday bras like a lot of women wear.
Mistake! Apparently, what I should have been doing, is buying bras that are “specifically designed for transitioning women”.
They will hold the girls in place while offering the right amount of support and comfort in a beautiful black lace package.
Don’t they look just like Real Bras™ that Real Women™ might wear in Real Life™? And you get to out yourself as trans when you go shopping for them!
Now, if someone would be kind enough to write me a suitably sarcastic closing paragraph containing the words ‘trans misogynistic’ and ‘cissexist’, I’d be very grateful. I have this overwhelming urge to go and put a few more dents in my forehead…
