One thing that I’m passionate about is the representation of trans people in media and pop culture, which is why I shuddered when I read that garbage Two and a Half Men apparently featured a “respectful” representation of a trans woman in their latest episode.
So what did I do? I did what any self respecting masochist does and downloaded the episode, and watched it so that you don’t have to.
Apparently, respectful representation of trans women = not projectile vomiting when they disclose their status, and continuing to date them deserves a special cookie. (Don’t worry, guys; you can still make penis jokes about them and out them behind their backs, and you’ll still be awesome!)
Seriously, though, what is it with sitcom “trans women” and their apparent need to always punch someone in the face/assert physical strength? Not to mention their oh so “masculine” traits like paying for movies, being all chivalrous and what have you, making the poor cishet guy insecure about his place as “the man” in the relationship? Chuck Lorre, you know we’re not a spy agency out to undermine your manhood, right?
Between that and the fact that the kid has left the show and been replaced by a lesbian niece (who I swear is just an excuse to make inappropriate gay jokes) it kind of leaves me wondering if she’s supposed to be the “Half” in the “Two and a Half Men.” (Ah, gender essentialist bullshit. How I don’t miss you.)
They should rename the show, but I suppose “Two Manchildren and a Faux-Lesbian Strawperson” is a bit clunky as a title.
