J.K. Rowling: ContraPoints


Jandi

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone here watches ContraPoints Youtube, but this is a link to her latest video regarding J.K. Rowling's trans issues.   It is pretty long, and she is not always "safe for work" as they put it.  But it might be interesting to some.

That was very entertaining and informative, Jandi.  Thank you for posting it.  I have to admit I'm pretty much done with the whole J.K. Rowling bit, but this was better than most.

I do enjoy her point of view actually. I just finished watching it myself. I now have bathtub envy though. That thing looks positively decadent.

 

Hugs!

@Jackie C.

Totally agree

 

@Jandi

Many thanks for the link. Loved the entire thing, except for the doll part...that was a weird moment for me. But other than that, it was very fun, enlightening and fascinating close hour and a half video.

Hey, Natalie Wynn! I saw that she had posted in my YouTube feed, but I haven't had a opportunity to watch her video to completion.

 

I'm not reading the other comments...because, spoilers! XD

Thank you, @Jandi It was worth every minute. So much information packed into 90 mins. My wife and I subscribed. We like her style...funny, memorable and on point. As @Mx.Drago points out, the mannequin scene was off the wall but most of her other comedy I enjoyed. 

 

Thanks again for sharing,

Susan R🌷

Thank you, I don't feel as weird alone in this feeling now.

 

Though I feel a need to state, Ladies are allowed to be and feel thirsty for intimacy, this is fine... but that part in the video was very unnecessary and not fine. Worse yet, she even made comment on the weirdness of that moment, while in that moment...the only question my brain screamed was "Why...?!"

Guess the joke was on me as she talks bout triggers, mannequins creep me out normally, and the actor Daniel Radcliffe looks like my younger brother, except less latino. 😶

I really want to like and love the video cuz other than my own personal issues with it, it was still worth watching... but oh my eyes and head burn still. Made me feel like I need to drinking.

That was a very interesting and thought-provoking video indeed lol...but I must say I am a bit concerned for her liver lmao. XD

Heck, I'm concerned for my liver as well. *sets down oh-so-patriotic Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, trying not to feel like stereotypical white trash* lol. 😅

She does have some issues admittedly.  But to be honest, so do I.   
The mannequin is a reference back to an older video.    But like I said, she isn’t really safe.  It is YouTube after all.

@Ellie Jean Right! Didn't wanna say more cuz I felt I pointed out my major nitpick and didn't wanna be excessive...been working on it. But then again, her having to read through all that content to make almost 90mins break down overview context edutainment vid, I can only imagine.

 

@Jandi
I understood the warning and to me she honestly managed very well despite the touchiness of the subject. I only had 2 nitpicks, and the only one that got me the most was the one she reflected on while doing it. I never saw her other videos, and there be a thin line between comedy and concerning. Everybody got issues, but guess she drank too much to realize it didn't help her edutainment lesson. Don't drink and make video editing decisions, and also don't reference your own older videos poor choices when you already have doubts bout the acts necessity. She could have just sat there talking with the mannequin instead cuz the real person isn't there and that's the closest in my mind making that part work and probably would have been fun....Por Que?

I enjoy her personality and sense of humor, but I also realize that she's not everyone's cup of tea. I also learned from some friends that she's six-feet tall. That's relevant because of how she fits into her bathtub. Now I want it even more.

 

I'm so having a sad, inadequate soak once I finish lunch and put the laundry in the drier.

 

Hugs!

Hmm. (curiously reading everyone's comments and comes across @Ellie Jean's) 🤔🍷😲  (considers putting down glass of red wine) (rebelliously takes another sip instead) 😎😉

Lol; I'm finishing my "last beer" yet again. Saving a sip for 5:59 AM Mountain Standard Time when I finish my last cigarette and my last bit of pot lol. Today's my first HRT appointment, and consequently the day I officially become clean and sober, (I have this OCD thing about quitting all three substances at the same time so that I know the precise moment that I quit using drugs and alcohol; I know, I'm weird lol.) 

And today is also a FULL MOON! Hooowwwlll!

'Tis a very special day overall indeed...and the numerology for my Quit Date works out perfectly for today lol, (being autistic, I kinda got a thing for numbers and dates. 😜)

...And being a witchy pagan, I kinda also have a thing for full moons and numerology; it's just a freaky coincidence that my first HRT appointment is this afternoon; didn't plan that at all lol. XD

Sadly I only stayed quit for 9 hours. Quitting AGAIN tomorrow; bought one last beer (again) and my friend Rhianna said she hasn't scraped her pipes in months and she'd be happy to let me service them for her.....I know that sounds like some kinda naughty euphemism for sex, but it's NOT lmao. 🤣

      Thank you Teri!  Its Blackheart Beauty polish from Hot Topic. I think the color is called Mermaid.  The labels have kind of smudged out so they are hard to read LOL.

      If i do a bit of a squeeze i get cleavage.  I'm just happy to have the pert cuties i've got.  My wife is a bit jealous as i'm more like a old teenager than the old woman i am.  No complaints!  If i ware a bra it is to hide the peaks from popping out and that is a rare need.   Hugs,   Charlize
    • Jackie C.
      The eyes thing would give me a headache, but tentative congratulations! I hope you get the position!   Hugs!

      I know what you mean. I am more out at work than I am at home. Sad to say.   Things are happening, today. I just got off the phone with the district manager in the Spokane area. While he said that he does have a person for the store manager in Deer Park. He does think he has a place for me to transfer too. That store manager is on vacation this week. So he will get with him and discuss me and see about getting me into another store. I explained just why I am wanting to move it seems like he does understand.   🤞fingers crossed, toes crossed and even eyes crossed.   Kymmie

      What a wonderful development...good job making that all happen for yourself.  I'm feeling a sense of freedom just reading about it.  Enjoy work today Ma'am!   You too @JustineM.  Hope it all goes well.

      That skirt looks good on you Liz...makes me want one.
    • 2beBreanna
      Congrats.  My wife was just making fun of me because I was soo enthralled with the fact that tighter shirts are starting to show a little growth.  I can't imagine how I would be when I get to that point.

      You noticed that too? The trend in IT right now seems to be gig work. There are some help-desk options too but... honestly...   I have a long history in IT. I'm very good at it. The thing is, I hate myself when I do it. The person I turn into is an absolute bitch. I retrained. Twice. I have a certificate in character animation... which I got just in time for the market to disappear from this area. By this time next week I'll be an RBT working with autistic kids. The pay is a step down, but if I'm going to work to make somebody else rich, I'd rather that the work matters.   The point being that there are always options. Sometimes they're not optimal. Yes. You're right. Being trans will matter for some employers. Not most of them, but sometimes you'll run into a bigot. Of course that's true with whatever you want to do in life. There is always potential to run into a bigot who runs you off the tracks. If being trans was easy... well, I don't know how that would work. I'm having trouble with coming up with an easy version of dysphoria. I mean what would that even be like?   Uber shouldn't be a big deal. I mean, I can't Uber, but my car is older than some of my friends. I get "sign up for Uber" offers all the time. You might also consider Social Security disability. It can take a while to process, but if you've been employed at some point in the last ten years and you can't find work in your field you're entitled to disability. After all, you paid into Social Security, that money is yours. I guess what I'm getting at is that whatever you're dealing with, it's only for now. You're a strong, independent woman. You can get past this.     Hugs!

      Shay, you are welcome.       I listen to this when I am deep in a project.   My inner self subconsciously builds a story to go with the music.   Sometimes I find myself crying as the emotion from the story I'm not primarily focused on comes to a crescendo.      ---WILLOW---
    • 2beBreanna
      That is great.  It's good to see some companies getting this right.    @ElizabethStar  It sounds like your wife us seeing that others are not worried about your gender. MAybe she will start following suit.

      The problem is I don't have Transgender friends here and I have sport trac which is ans suv/pick up. Not a  lot of room for anything like sleeping. When I used the term here I was talking bout here in Texas. At least not who I could consider friends in the way true friends are supposed to be. I was hoping to see about going to a couple of group meetings before the "plandemic" happened and screwed everything up. I think I could have possibly created some possible close friends but things didn't come to be.
