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.

@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,

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.   

Link to post

@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!

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. 🤣

      I'm probably old enough to be your childs grandparent, but I'm going through some questioning about how to address my own legal name. I wonder if the solution I'm thinking of for myself may be appropriate for your child. I'm not sure if the same rules apply to official/registered names in USA (I'm in UK), but why not legally ADD your child's new name to their registered name. I have many friends and family who choose one of their first names to be known by. My Mother in Law for example has always be known by her 2nd registered name.   If you were to register your child's new name as their first but retain their original name as a second would this compromise work for you both?

      Early on? Yeah. It takes a minute for your mind to settle into the idea that you're where you're supposed to be. The dysphoria monster keeps telling you that you're a fraud and that sends you tripping down the steps into a death spiral. It is very much a fake it until you make it situation. I misgender MYSELF sometimes. It gets easier with time though. Your new identity takes precedence over the one you wore for so long. When I feel like a fraud, I revel in something girly for a while. A romance novel, treatment, dressing hyper-femme for a bit, whatever. Just to remind myself how much I love being who I am.   Hugs!

      Salutations @Hsarandos! Welcome to Transpulse!   So your son wants to be called Xi. That's the name that he thinks fits him the best. He likes it. He wants to be called Xi. Go for it. If he decides he wants to change it later, that's OK too. I didn't go with my first choice, but it's not really a big deal.   I think you're getting a little hung up on all the work you did to name your son. The thing with names though is that we hang them on someone before we really get to know them. Sure, you know your son fairly well (at least it seems like that, kudos for being supportive parents by the way) now, but how well did you know him when he was just born? Heck, you thought he was a girl!   His reluctance to go with his given name could be bad feelings because he associates it with being a girl. Sure, it's unisex, but when he wore it, it was while he was pretending to be a girl. He might not want the reminder. The time we spend pretending to be the gender everybody says we are hurts and your son might just want a clean break. I'm not saying you have to change it in the Official Records just yet. Let that ride for a while until he's sure. If that's the name he wants going forward as your son though? Call him Xi. Being trans is stressful enough, he needs your love, acceptance and support. It sounds like you're on the right track. Keep up the good work!   Hugs!

      I hope your tooth feels better soon!   You could suggest that they do the interview by Zoom or Skype or something.  This is 2021: everyone uses technology for meetings.  They would still get to read your facial expressions and see how you present yourself, which is why they ask for in-person interviews.

      Hiya peeps   So, here in the UK we've essentially been on lockdown for the past 12 months, meaning all the shops are shut. Also meaning all the laser hair removal shops are shut. This has been traumatising. Nothing sets off a good bout of dysphoria like a nice beard in the morning!   At Christmas, after dressing at home and weekends for the past twelve months, essentially full time, I came out at work. I work with and around 200-300 people face to face as a Transport Manager, so my transition has become very public. Everybody has been polite and respectful using my new name and gender pronouns. However, It makes me feel terrible. I feel like a fraud, with makeup hiding beard all the time. I feel we're all playing make-believe with people calling me She/her. Maybe being forced to do so? Is it normal to feel this way?

      I would guess the baby shower ranked right up there with a Tupper ware party. I've always thought all those kind of events were boring. The good part was that you were invited, and treated the same as any other woman.   I hesitate saying this because my therapist just told me about it. It looks like the grieving process is getting over with your wife and she's starting to accept you as you are more. YAY!

      Hi JN Orange. Welcome to Trans Pulse. I am AMAB but have felt somewhat similar to you. Not driven strongly to either side. I am out to wife and select few. My wife is straight as well. I am without hormones due to ADT for prostate cancer and subsequently realized how much I hate testosterone. I am enjoying the changes that have been happening. I am getting GCS soon to fix a botched prostate surgery. It helps a lot when your spouse is supportive.   Hugs, Mike

      impatiently waiting for 8:00. I have a dentist appointment. I have a tooth that is about an 8 on the pain scale. started Wednesday. Today was the earliest I could get in. Dr. doesn't want me taking anything for the pain so she can get an accurate pain rating(?)Yeah, it flipping hurts.   The other position I applied for in Spokane valley wanted me to come in for an in person interview at 1pm today. Even after I told them I was still in WY. OH well. Right now I feel that my best chance on getting out of here is with my own company.   Hugs, Kymmie

      Hi all! My child 11 years old came out a few months ago (F to M). I’ve been very supportive and proud even that he has felt comfortable enough to come out to me so young. We consulted with the doctor, got set up with a psychologist to move in the direction of puberty blockers and such. Ive gotten him a new wardrobe, cut his hair, purged all things girl from his room. I’ve been on board for everything until he came up with a preferred name and it’s like me and his dad have hit a brick wall. I didn’t expect something seemingly as small as a name would be my “issue”.  My child doesn’t have a “girl” name, it’s actually a gender neutral name that is more often used for boys, a famous football player even. But instead he wants to be called Xi by everyone, teachers, us, family etc.   He’s my oldest and I remember how excited I was to pick his name. I spent HOURS combing websites, books, my brain, making lists. I see it as a gift of love that me and his father gave him when he was born and it upsets both of us that he wants to change it. If it was a girl name I would understand but it’s a boy name too, so what to do?! I’m not a fan of my name either but I understand my parents picked it special for me so I’d never change it eventhough I’d prefer something else.   Im also concerned because he is so young, what he likes now might not be what he likes later in life and it’s not practical to have to keep changing his name. I told him this and asked him to just sit on the name for a while and revisit in a few months to see it that’s really what he wants. I tried suggesting Xi be a nickname his friends use but that was a no-go. He wants everyone to use Xi.  It’s been our only but constant battle with him. Even if I come around, his dad will be harder to convince. 😕

      What a pity!  At the same time, like Texas, they have ended any mask mandates.  Deplorable's just about summed it up! The south has indeed risen again......to new levels of stupidity and cruelty.   Hugs,   Charlize
