@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: Sometimes all it takes is a knife to the gut and several weeks in the hospital to come around, right?

Though looking back, Bill was starting to accept Annie for longer than that. He was "accidentally" calling her a girl when talking to Mitch and gave her a few chances to take off the necklace herself without violence. I think he got it, he just didn't want her to get it. Would YOU want your brother to go through life getting hurt by people?
He was always an ally, just a very misguided one. Now he is the kind we all like.

Next step: Get Vic to stop being such an ass, get Annie's mom to stop being such an ass, get Valerie to stop being such an ass (you haven't met her), get the orderly to stop being an ass, and of course, get Joanie to stop being an ass.
You know, no problem, easy stuff.

So Bill is finally coming around to the correct understanding about Toni/Annie? ( I noticed Bill did not try and rip Annie's necklace off, as he has done in the past. ) He has changed, I hope, from an antagonist to an ally. One can only hope that there would be more like him in Annie's life ( but without the antagonist part ). . . .

I like this view on it.
I was never male, just male-bodied/male-labeled

Ironical language is intended to be inclusive by parodying the insult, if that makes sense. You have to have a mutual understanding with someone before you can mock-insult them or else the mocking can be misinterpreted. Used correctly it bonds people more strongly, because it acknowledges a shared understanding of the slur. Out of context and the insult remains - like the way the word gay has been hijacked and gets used as a negative by the hetero community. I suppose it's because words like that are so blatant.

@stickygirl: Yeah, the march and the pride parade got their act together and are now properly trans inclusive. There were some HUGE problems a few years ago, basically, transwomen (read: transmen were always cool) were being either ignored or deliberately pushed out of planning and recognition.

I've always sort of wondering about the reclamation of words between friends. Like, myself and a coworkers sometimes call each other tranny, but hey, we are both cool with it. And RThompkins sometimes calls me one and I call him a fag, but we also both know we would die to protect the other. Then again, RMitch calls RThompkins a fag too, and he is straight, and never calls me anything, and we all know RMitch would beat down anyone for bigotry any day. So where do we draw the lines? None of us would ever call someone we don't know by these things, but to us, they are just words. Funny words that poke fun at other people using them as insults. Like how we call each other "whitey", because it doesn't MEAN anything. And yet, you would never refer to anyone else that way, right?

Food for thought, I guess.

Is it all ok with that march now? I heard there was some problem with trans* and the organisers a couple of years back.
These are friends hanging out so, not offensive - affectionate :)

I'm not seeing a reinforcement of rape culture but a underlying comment on how we mistakenly gauge beauty by the reactions of men ( which is deemed patriarchal ). It's a double bind because individually, we want to be attractive ( because we want to have love ) but collectively we criticise men for judging us on looks.
I think Andrea is wrong for saying it but in context, it's ok - she means well.
The mirror thing: the camera lies, the mirror lies - it's all about how we perceive ourselves and what we choose to see.
