You can buy a mug of my Autostraddle Column! (it’s the Drawn to Comics one)
I totally do not understand this Saving Mr. Banks movie at all. Like, P.L. Travers hated Walt Disney and hated his adaption of Mary Poppins even more. She hated it so much that when people asked if they adapt Mary Poppins as a musical, she said it was okay only as long as no one associated with the movie or even born outside of England would be involved with the creative process. Plus, he was a huge jerk to her, didn’t even invite her to the premiere, and when she told him that she didn’t like the animated sequences he walked away from her and said dismissively “Pamela, the ship has sailed.”
Like, Walt Disney is definitely the villain of this story. He was a huge jerk in the whole process and treated P.L. Travers like trash.
*spends thousands of dollars on extensive plastic surgery*
*slathers self in more make-up than the average drag queen*
*wearing $$$ of corsetry/spanx/shapewear, high heels, frills, dresses, sequins etc*
*strikes a contorted pose that no one would ever strike naturally*
*photoshops end result for two hours*
"See! We are ALL NATURAL WOMEN! We’re totally prettier than you ugly females/terfs/feminists! You’re just jealous!"
This is probably the most offensive, caricatured, stereotypical strawtranswoman I’ve ever seen.
This literally never happens. Transmisogynists are so lazy.
Lol I take pictures of myself in pajamas wrapped in blankets with five o clock shadow and I’m still prettier than terfs simply because I have a soul.
Wait… I don’t see anything wrong with any of the things described here. What’s wrong with wearing a lot of makeup? What’s wrong with getting plastic surgery? What’s wrong with wearing corsets or dresses or sequins? This post is literally just describing things all sorts of women (and other gendered people) do all the time. Plus, a lot of this is describing things that femmes do and like, and pretending that they’re bad, which is just gross. Like, these are things that Nicki Minaj and Dolly Parton and Kim Kardashian and countless other cis women celebrities do all the time and it in no way makes them something other than “all natural women,” so why would it make trans women anything else?
