First Time I Saw Me: Trans Voices | Meredith Talusan | Netflix + GLAAD

  • Published on Jun 13, 2018
  • Netflix and GLAAD know that authentic media stories and characters are pivotal in creating acceptance. This is especially true for trans people, who have either been invisible in mainstream media or portrayed using inaccurate and offensive stereotypes. And that’s why when you finally see a trans character that resonates with you as real and authentic - where you can see a part of yourself in the story - it is so powerful.

    I can’t find enough things in the house to throw up on, it’s not about the personal choice. It’s more the fact that we are so privileged as a society we have enough time to sit around and play gender roulette, and not fighting for food or water. SJW’s are trying to destroy what it means to be a happy healthy male. No weird, no different, just male. And to women the biggest insult, you have a male who got woman of the year, I’m so sorry for these disgraces to your grace and beauty. If there is a god, I pray he or she can be comforted in knowing there’s still the creatures it developed. Who don’t sit around playing dress up, but fight to do good. Who don’t sit and want to be praised for being different. But are different in building life, inventions, and business. And I pray God forgive us for our insult to your creation.

    Imagine being such a small person that the very existence of a trans person in a video is enough to trigger you into leaving a demeaning comment or giving the video a downvote. Thanks Netflix for caring about representation.

    Netflix, youtube, google, twitter...all pushing the same crap. All pandering. Its sad and pathetic. This is nothing more than pushing narratives and an agenda to force acceptance. And as with the gay marriage thing turned out, they wont stop with acceptance. You HAVE to think they're soooo great because of what they are or liberals will try to destroy you. They're going to shove this crap in our face until the next weird thing comes along that they decide to push. My God, I shutter to think what's next.

      Madden Scrubs Honey, acceptance is a good thing. None of your fucking business who i marry. I live my life. Dont watch the video if you dont like it. Society isn't your personal property. It will change, whether you like it or not. Why tf would you hate people that don't do anything to you? We're living our lives. The end.

      Lars T. So your telling me that their is nothing wrong with trans people? I mean i'm not a homophobic i respect them and few of my friends are accualy gays , but being trans is so disturbing and wrong and i really cant allow this in my bloodline .

    • Lars T.
      Lars T. 10 months ago +2

      Oussama Hafidi Well its not. Some people develop a one gender's brain but a different body. They're born this way. Get over it. They deserve to live a peaceful life, imagine you were born in the body of the opposite sex. Now leave people alone.

      I'm a 40 straight white male who also cares. What is your point Mr. Nobody? Are you saying it's wrong to show your emotions? Trust us, we are using our brains and logic. It's logical to not hate people based on their differences, and we sure as hell are using our brains to understand the crap you are spewing out of your transphobic mouth!

      bluetextonwhitebackground Why shouldn't we normalize this concept? There is a lot of research on the subject and tons of scientific explanation on why people identify as transgender. The trans community is growing and growing, and people are more and more aware of it. It IS normal my friend, it is way more common today than 20 years ago. And like I said, being transgender is not a mental illness, so stop comparing it to schizophrénie or bipolar disorder. However, saying to someone that there is something wrong with them because of their mental illness is disgusting, we simply said they are different. Dumbasses like you are the reason the suicide rate is going up in America, bullying, school shooting and all that.

    • blue text on white background

      learn some reading comprehension skills, you fucking moron. i didn't call trans people disgusting; i said that normalizing this behavior is disgusting. why don't you tell people with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder that nothing is wrong with them because they were "born that way."

    • Proud Misfit
      Proud Misfit 9 months ago

      bluetextonwhitebackground Shut the fuck up! 1) You are insinuating that people with mental disorders are disgusting. Do you understand that mental illness is never a choice, some people are born with it and some develop it during their life. Yes some of them need some type of help, but it's not their fault and you should not hold it against them. You are the disgusting human. 2) Being trans is not a mental disorder. A mental disorder is a illness that affects your mood, your thinking and your behavior. I know for a fact that if we could all be open-minded and respect the trans commmunity, Trans people would be a lot more happier, they wouldn't overthink about people's opinion and they would not have to behave a certain way to be accepted. Being transgender is now classified as gender dysphoria, which is not a mental illness, but just a medical term to describe how inconfortable and unhappy trans people feel when they can't express who they really are on the inside. The only reason trans people will consult a therapist or a doctor, is to help them with their transition, not stop it! 3) The fact that you are so worried about how other people live their lives is weird. Maybe YOU need medical help.

      bluetextonwhitebackground you need to go to a doctor mate. There's a definetly a problem with you for thinking this way. "These people" are much more stronger and beautiful from inside than you can ever be. I wish you weren't so full of hate.

      you're trying to normalize a mental disorder and it's fucking disgusting. these people need psychological help, NOT irreversible hormone treatments and permanently mutilated bodies.

      david n Normality is an illusion dear. If you're triggered by seeing this being on Netflix, you probably have a very personal problem - your own insecurities. Because Trans people did nothing to you. You hate them for no good reason. Live and let live. The end.

    • Adventures with Gnomie
      Adventures with Gnomie 10 months ago +1

      david n - I'm normal. I don't give a fuck what you want. You have heterosexual normalcy at every turn. TV, movies & shoving your tongue down the throat of your girlfriend without fear of getting beat up. If you don't want to the series - don't watch it. Really it's simple.
