BOOOOO! On "Rookie Blue" !!!

I was watching WIPEOUT, which I love for five minutes, when ROOKIE BLUE, some CRAP new series, comes on and in seconds manages to DEEPLY INSULT every gay, TRANS, or friend of trans person in America. They basically have her as a JOKE of course and the two new rookies a male and a female are SHOCKED that shes a tranny and NEITHER are willing to search her. Why does the girl have an issue?!?!? Its not like the tranny is THREATENING or even UGLY shes a passable tranny on hormones. Not to mention if it takes place in NEW YORK, you can say youre ANY SEX and its LEGAL as sex is LEGALLY A STATE OF MIND AND CAN ONLY BE DETERMINED BY THE PERSON THEMSELVES, so its up to whatever the tranny wants, not the COP?! Its gross, it was insulting, it makes me never wanna watch Wipeout again because its on the same network.. Fucking Gross, its 2010 and now that they cant make fun of gays so theyre using trannies as the "different" person. Gross, when my grandfather would go to Coney Island as a kid and they would have the different theme park characters running around they had a CHICKEN, a GIANT WOMAN, and a BLACK COP.. That was the JOKE! That a cop could be black?! .. Its no different then that... YUCK .. Im mean its not even like its "normal people" on tv behaving badly its POLICE OFFICERS which put it in the realm of "PROPER BEHAVIOR" to FEAR TRANNIES. Maybe they should... they should fear THIS tranny at least..... Assholes.
Ps The only reason why I even mention the name of the show, which when I talk smack about something I usually dont mention the name because I dont want to give it any more press, but Im hoping one of their web spiders searching online for feedback about the show finds it and realizes how gross and hateful they are.

it is ugly, but the fact of the matter is that mainstream visibility, even as an object of ridicule, is a major step toward acceptance. it was the same thing with the wacky gay neighbor back in the day. not that long ago, there's no way you'd see a transexual on tv on primetime. So is it not being handled well? well, no. Can it be called progress? i would have to say yeah.

the other thing i'd say is that the rookie cops are supposed to be the ones that are the assholes, here. the scene was there to illustrate their ineptitude.

Seriously, though- where are all the good tranny roles? How come you never see a tranny judge on Law and Order? That's some bullshit.

Isn't this the channel that canceled Ugly Betty? That says something about them too.

You know, it is sad. And unfortunately, people fear what they don't understand. I actually had someone say to me the other day that there are no transexuals in St. Louis. I have no idea how this conversation started, but I was like, "Are you kidding me?" It's freaky b/c this person is apparently are too self-absorbed or whatever to notice them and they become invisible and I feel so bad. I mean to live in a world and people don't see you. There's a m2f lady working the returns at Target and I swear she looks terrified, like some asshole will discover her secret...she won't even look you in the eye and it pisses me off b/c most people here would freak if they knew she used to be a he and therefore is somehow threatening your return of a fucking blender.

And this is totally off topic, but I had a person ask me if I felt safe having my gay best friend around my kids. WTF? I point blank asked why and she said, "Well you know." The shit people say to me b/c I look every part of the St. Louis stay at home mom who drives a minivan is insane. I should write a book b/c while they won't spew their hate directly to a gay person's, black person's, tranny's, god forbid democrat's face, they say it to me and it makes my head want to explode. It makes me want to bring the pink unicorn to the little league game and tell them all to suck it. And the fact that they are spewing this hatred about people they don't even know while sitting on the school board and volunteering in the classroom thinking that they are the good people is mind boggling. That a mom at the school who volunteers in my daughter's classroom, when asked my her son what gay was, said, "something bad." My daughter asked my husband and I a few months ago what gay was and our answer was decidedly different.

I will get off my soapbox now. Sorry, but that post really pissed me off. That in 2010 ignorance and apathy is so totally pervasive.

Wow, thanks for writing Holly!
You know a book that truly and deeply examined what a "typical" american housewife, hears from other people, ABOUT other people would be insightful, if not for an entire book, at least an essay.
It could really get into how terror, competition, and control run these womens lives.
Id read it.

Let's just say that after reading your blog, you have a pretty good understanding. And the fact that their husbands let themselves be led around by their dicks...Oh I could tell stories. It would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. I do sort of feel like a spy. It's freaky when people tell you stuff like this. Like if you had an acquaintance who just started telling you how he thought Hitler may have been onto something and you're so freaked out by what is being said that you can't almost believe it. I really should start writing this shit down. You could blog yourself raw.

I hope ROOKIE BLUE is a hit so we can all watch how they still try to pass her off as a rookie in Season 9.

David Mason said...

It would be a great blog, called like " the secret life of Nazi housewives" and record the insane shit people say, and where, what time, and why.
