Short Film, small budget, big impact?

I saw this linked on twitter from a highland LGBT forum, Gaelic as a language is still being nurtured and encouraged back into the public domain after speaking, reading, and writing it was made illegal for many years in Scotland. This has subtitles for folks like me, but I think it is a fairly close to the bone piece.

It may seem a bit confusing to start with, but I can see what they were aiming for in the video, stick with it to the end.

Well worth watching, although a little sad. I was half trying to understand the Gaelic and half watching but it did not really needs words or subtitles.

 

Thank you!

Yes it is a bit sad but then, maybe not as she has awakened from here past.  

 

I must admit I have never heard Gaelic spoken conversationally so this was an interesting experience.   I can never understand the arrogance of those who would make speaking in one's native tongue illegal.

But it was a lovely film and had me going right up till the end. 

Is it really bad that i was trying to pick out a single feature to identify her as trans?

 

But i got it in the end. It was a abstact perception.

?? I used an online translator maid. Love it!  I spent the first couple of minutes doing that too, and while I think she exaggerates her walk to the more common 'casual' shoulder bounce when she walks past the guys in the street funnily enough I couldn't find any.

I think they did a good job at pointing out the possible reactions and definitely the fear of rejection being coated in fake niceness. 

 

Jani she has indeed been born, despite everything else so in a way it does have a happy ending.

It is a part of history, the United Kingdom was united by the ruling classes so England did not have to worry about fighting a war on multiple fronts, outlawing the language happened after the Jacobite uprising, it stopped the peasants plotting and revolting, if it wasn't for the outlying islands the language would have been totally exterminated. There has been a concerted effort to bring it back which has had some success.

It’s very nice to hear Gaelic. Even though I can’t get my head around it either. There’s something primal and otherworldly about it. Like Klingon and Quenya had a baby and it was Gael. 

 

The video was very artistic and I appreciate the message. The scenery reminds me of North Dakota though. Very cold looking and somewhat flat in town. Not a day I would wear a dress, it’s so cold looking! Maybe she can stand it better than me.

 

@Maid In Bedlam OMG I died!!! I couldn’t breathe I was laughing so hard! 

 

Isle of Bute Councillor Len Scouller, who is independent, said: "It makes us look bloody stupid. 
"I'm not a Gaelic speaker but I would apologise to people who are Gaelic speakers and we will rectify it right away.

 

 I guess that changes the whole meaning of “hey baby, I really like your bod!”

      These folks sure have an unhealthy fascination and irrational hatred for those both giving and receiving medical help for established medical help.   Unfortunately it is hurting so many who need help.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Good morning all! I have my BA scheduled in May (yay!) and as the date gets closer, I wanted to get some opinions on what questions I should be asking during my pre-op appointment. I've already had a consult, and I got good vibes and my questions at the time were all answered, but I suppose I'm in that mindset of "you don't know what you don't know." First question I have are what questions should I be asking at the pre-op appointment?   Secondly-what was recovery like? TImeframes for going back to work, pain levels, tips and tricks, all are welcome. Thank you all!

      "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt". Almonds are a member of the peach family. Maine is the only state that has a one-syllable name. There are only four words in the English language which end in "dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. Los Angeles' full name is "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula"

      Phew, well we can agree on the "be yourself" bit! And yes, chatting to others as yourself; in my experience that is so crucial. My sense is that, on the whole, people warm to me far more now that I am out of the closet than they ever did before when I was hiding.

      The trans people I was stating were the commonly quoted. In effect I am in one of those other categories but my thoughts still stand.   In my view it's not really a case of blending in though. I tend to think about things. One of my thoughts has been to look throught the eyes of a woman. Getting up every morning. Putting my clothes on (female) and going out. Am I seen as trans? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I don't really know. I just dress in the morning and live out my day. Yes I can be nervous. I'm that sort of person. When I think about it may cis women are self conscious too. Maybe not the same things but to the same effect. If I had been born female would it really have changed my world as regards being accepted as a person or would it have just brought other worries of equal magnitude?   There will always be  haters and agressive activism will only be fuel to their fire. In my experience the key is not to just blend in but to be yourself and chat to others as youself. Yes, that probably means you blend into your position in society but the only other option is to be outside.   Locally I look around me and hear what people say about different minorities. They are upset and even, at times, afraid of even speaking anything negative at times for fear of ending up in court. It is possible to get a prison sentence for anti trans speech and there are those who would attempt to achieve this end in the name of activism. The same is true with other minority groups. I suppose a worry I see, which luckily or otherwise I don't really have the option of locally, is that trans groups banding together in activism will be seen as a dangerous faction whereas an individual getting along (openly) with their life will not.   In my view many of the comments being made actually almost admit defeat as soon as they are made. Legeslation does not change the people. Only the people will do that. A big stick will only prompt an even bigger one.   Tracy

      I wore long skirts for years before going fulltime. Now I never wear long pants. I mostly wear skirts, skorts, or rompers. Occasionally, I wear shorts, usually over tights. I just hate long pants,

      I have two saxeT (they are backward) friends who have already changed their medical care down into Mexico although I don't think it was this specific reason, but this could spark an inverse border crisis pretty easily. This may be related to the Planned Parenthood record dust-up since PP would be getting a goodly chunk of the saxeT medicaid money since they are a good provider of services to the Trans community too.
