"So i want to jump into the book in many ways. I think good and bad in the media. We perpetuate this narrative that trans lives only begin with transportation and everything else is off limits. And i think that the book was really necessary reminder that trans people's lives actually star at birth and that transfer very like valid childhoods and youths. Also i want to be very careful when i talk about translates and my own life in terms of the language that i use but that i mean that i'm aware that there are many transgender women who would not refer to the first part of their life as boyhood and it's really important to respect that having said that i can tell you so. Look i came out publicly as trance. When i was forty. It is a fact that i've always been the same person in my heart. But i did have lived experience in which my way being the world was very different. Maybe i don't need to apologize for the way. I view the world. But i'm going on like this because they're one of your respectful of transgender women who reject the idea of talking about their boyhood and i don't mean to be disrespectful to my sisters. I hope it's okay for me to say that the way i look at the first half of by for the first two thirds of my life. There was a time when i experienced boyhood and experienced manhood. It wasn't something that i was particularly good at or something that i particularly wanted but i did experience it and it seems like a long time ago. Now jeffrey. it's like. I mean it's at least twenty years in the past and i'm sixty sixty one now. In fact what does it mean to be. A middle aged woman who had a boyhood at least as far as other people are concerned. How do i make peace with that child. When that child seems to be so different from the person i became. What are the lessons of boyhood that i took with me. Not every lesson that i took with me from boyhood was necessarily a bad one and i think that looking at the trans movement. You really got your star in it when were still educating the public about what trans meant and i think that we've now entered the phase of it for now in the phase where we are talking more about how every trans story is different and not everybody experiences being trans in the same way. Yeah and it's it's different generation. Only my daughter's trans and no one was more surprised than i was when she came out to me. I think she will be the first person to tell you i was. I was not the perfect transgender parent poster child at that moment. I was really concerned for her. There was a lot of work ahead to be done and most of it by me but one of the things that i really learned in that experience was that being trance for someone coming out twenty years later than i did and almost twenty years younger than i am is. It means something different and so. Here's what i mean by that. When i came out as trans i felt like i had to spend a couple of years explaining myself. Educating people around me. Because i was the first trans person that a lot of people ever heard of a lot of people thought that made the whole thing myself. You know for my daughter's generation. It's a whole other thing being transferred means that you can celebrate. You can be happy you can be and you can be trans exactly as you feel like. That's really interesting. And so twenty years ago celebrating. Being trans wasn't even part the conversation. I felt like i had to be apologetic. I felt like i had to say. I'm so sorry but this is who i am. I hope you'll understand me now. If you read. She's not there continues to be book. I'm tremendously proud of but there's the faint aroma of apology about some parts of that book and that is not how how many people experience being trans now it. Forgive me one of the reasons.

"And I'm not going to take crap from staffers who believe that opinions are threatening to safety. I'm not going to accuse of threatening someone safety for signing on to an Indian opinion about how council culture is generally bad. Emily Vander Wert says his signature on the letter makes me feel less safe box and believe slightly less in its stated goals of building more diverse and more thoughtful workplace on more practical level, the presence of man's tweets and his signature to a letter like this do make my job slightly more difficult. Today, do they, really, as it would be readers and sources too often acquaint my positions with heads. After all, he remains one of our most prominent staffers. I don't want match me reprimanded or fired or even ask to submit no apology during any of the above would only solidify in his own mind the idea that he's being martyred for his beliefs. But I do want to make clear that those beliefs cost him nothing. They're not particularly risky. They're not particularly sound even I'm used to hearing them from people who believe my own lived experiences pale in comparison to their own momentary social media discomfort. I'm sorry to find that among those voices at No point did Iglesias compare his experiences in life to this Emily, the underworld character? I mean, it's just It's amazing. It's amazing. So calling out Matthew Iglesias publicly he's Matthew was Bad enough to sign this letter. It will this this sort of pressure, which has bubbled up again. There is nothing in the letter is about trans people, not a single thing in letter. In fact, the letter basically says we're members of the left. We support. If you just read that letter in any objective way that you would come away with his they support All of the propaganda put forth by the trans movement. Generally, Jake a rally is on the letter because it doesn't make that explosive. But the whole thing is about social justice and equality. And we hate Trump and all of this, if you just read that letter without knowing any of the signatory There's no way you could possibly come away with the opinion of the people who wrote that letter. Do anything except support the idea that biological man become a woman writing that that just does not exist in the text of the letter, But what's hilarious is that they're the sweets that are going around things like one of the things you should think about in that letter. Are you responsible? Oh, the actions and opinions of people who are also signatories to the letter. But should we assume if you're mad, Iglesias, you now agree with J. K. Rowling on trans issues. Of course not. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my entire life. Theresa the map you Iglesias is also a Cambodian genocide denier like Noam Chomsky like No. If I signed on to a letter with a bunch of other people, the text of the letter is what we have in common. What is it that it is nothing else. There is no way to impute any other agreements on any other issue other than the letter that we have commonly sign what in the world, But what is this result in it results in people starting to pull down their support. So one of the original signature raises a person. Jennifer Finney Boylan, who's a trans person A trick. I believe general. Correct. I believe that Jennifer, I'm gonna look it up just to make sure that Jennifer Finney Boylan writes for The New York Times and isn't back yet. Transgender activists professor at Barnard College of Columbia University. And this person put out a statement. Quote. I did not know who else had signed that letter. I thought I was endorsing a well meaning at big message against Internet shaming. I did know Chomsky signing that Woodward and I thought, Good company. First of all this demonstrates your perspective when you think that Noam Chomsky is good company Gloria Steinem is great company, but Jennifer Finney Boylan, the consequences are mind to their eye and so sorry and so sorry. So out of fear of being handled and being ostracised by trans rights community, a trans person I signed on the letter now has two now has to apologize. And then there's a person named Carrie Greenidge carry. Greenidge is one of the signatories and I believe is the melon, assistant professor in the Department of Studies of Racist Colonialism and Diaspora at Tufts University. I said, there's a person very much of left to carry. Greenidge signed the letter and then wrote in a tweet. I do not endorse this. Harper's letter. I'm in contact with Harper's about our attraction, so people are now walking the stuff back right. They have to walk it back because the blowback cancel culture isn't real And also you will be cancelled if you signed a letter saying the Cancel culture Israel Really well done, everyone. So how about his cancel culture? Cancel culture is so bad that we have no cancelled, acting and also research. These are a couple things that we have cancelled. But don't worry, it doesn't exist. And if you mention it exists, then you're a threat to somebody else's safety, your threats of somebody else's safety. So how do we just cancel acting we had in the past. What a couple of years Several high profile actresses who have been told that they're not allowed to play trans people. If you want to cast a trans person, the person has to be Trans. In other words, Let's say that you want to play a trans man, which means a biological woman who believes that that she is a male What do you want to play that? And you're a biological woman, which seems like it checks most of the marks for playing a biological woman like last night checked playing a biological woman believes she is a man that was like you should be able to play that your biological woman correct like just putting it out there. That's like saying you have Ah, black person who believes in particular cause of your black person should able to play that person. Even if you don't necessarily believe in that political cause. It's called acting guys, But here you can fulfil the physical criteria. Right and because again by large woman playing biological woman, so apparently not. We had a couple of situations in the recent past, in which this has not been the case, just pointing out from Hollywood's perspective if you are Not a trans person, and you play a trans person in any generation win an Oscar or re release nominated for one right. Jared leader won an Oscar like a couple of years ago for Dallas Buyers Club playing a trans person and I believe Eddie Redmayne was nominated for an Oscar for playing a trans person a couple of years ago so that it's pretty much gold ticket to Oscar time. But not anymore. Not anymore. Now it's all stopped. Scarlett Johansson you'll recall about a year ago, was supposed to play a trans person. In a movie those I think called rub and tug or something, and the movie was canceled because Scarlett Johansson is in fact, a woman. A biological woman does not believe that she is a biological man, and therefore not trans. Halle Berry just went through the same thing to Halle Berry was about to be cast in a story about a trans man meaning a biological woman, and now she's pulled out of this. Here's the statement she released, But the full malice struggle session attached is the best acting frankly, that Halle Berry has done since Monster monsters Ball is right here in this statement first, I'm also gonna need an explanation on why Halle Berry was able to play in X Men character when she sees that she is, in fact, not a mutant. She actually is not a mutant. And yet she was playing a mutant who can shoot lightning from her from her fingertips, So I'm gonna need like an explanation as to the bigotry against lightning fingertips mutants anyway, Halle Berry says. Over the weekend. I had the opportunity to discuss my consideration of an upcoming role as a transgender man. I'd like to apologize for those remarks as assist general woman I know, understand. I should not have considered this role..

If you just read that letter in any objective way that you would come away with his they support All of the propaganda put forth by the trans movement. Generally, Jake a rally is on the letter because it doesn't make that explosive. But the whole thing is about social justice and equality. And we hate Trump and all of this, if you just read that letter without knowing any of the signatory There's no way you could possibly come away with the opinion of the people who wrote that letter. Do anything except support the idea that biological man become a woman ramming that that just does not exist in the text of the letter, But what's hilarious is that they're these tweets that are going around things like one of the things we should think about in that letter. Are you responsible? The actions and opinions of people who are also signatories to the letter. But should we assume that if you're mad, Iglesias, you now agree with J. K. Rowling on trans issues? Of course not. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my entire life to rescind. The Matthew Iglesias is also a Cambodian genocide denier like Noam Chomsky. But no If I signed on to a letter with a bunch of other people, the text of the letter is what we have in common. Hey, there is nothing else. There is no way to impute any other agreements on any other issue other than the letter that we have commonly sign what in the world, But what is this result in it results in people starting to pull down their support. So one of the original signatories is a prison in Jennifer Finney. Boylan was a trans person atria. I believe general. Correct. I believe that Jennifer I'm looking up just to make sure that Jennifer Finney Boylan writes for The New York Times. And isn't back yet. Transgender activists professor at Barnard College of a Columbia University and this person put out a statement quote I did not know who else had signed that letter. I thought I was endorsing a well meaning a big message against Internet shaming. I did know Chomsky, Steinem Atwood were in and I thought, Good company. First of all this demonstrates your perspective when you think that Noam Chomsky is good company Gloria Steinem is great company, but Jennifer Finney Boylan, the consequences are mind to their eye and so sorry and so sorry. So out of fear of being handled and being ostracised by trans rights community, a trans person who signed on the letter now has two now has to apologize. And then there's a person named Carrie Greenidge carry. Greenidge is one of the signatories and I believe is the melon, assistant professor in the Department of Studies of Racist Colonialism and Diaspora at Tufts University. I said there's a person very much left to carry. Greenidge signed a letter and then wrote in a tweet. I do not endorse this. Harper's letter. I'm in contact with Harper's about our attraction, so people are now walking the stuff back right. They have to walk it back because the blowback cancel culture isn't real And also you will be cancelled if you signed a letter saying they cancel culture Israel Really well done, everyone. So how about his cancel culture? Cancel culture is so bad that we have no cancelled, acting and also research. These are a couple things that we have cancelled. But don't worry, it doesn't exist. And if you mention it exists, and you're a threat to somebody else's safety, your threats of somebody else's station. So how do we just cancel acting what we had in the past what couple of years several high profile actresses who have been told that they're not allowed to play trans people. If you want to cast a trans person, the person has to be trained. In other words, Let's say that you want to play a trans man, which means a biological woman who believes that that she is a male. What's it that you want to play? That? And you are biological woman, which seems like it checks most of the marks for playing a biological woman like last checked. Playing a biological woman believes she is a man that seems like you should be able to play that if your biological woman correctly just putting it out there. That's like saying you have Ah, black person who believes in particular, cause you're black person should able to play that person. Even if you don't necessarily believe in that political cause. It's called acting guys, but here, even fulfill the physical criteria Ray and because again by large woman playing biological woman, So apparently not..

"To my interview with Jennifer Finney Boylan is written extensively about her life as a transgender woman her new memoir is called good boy my life and seven dogs it's about seven stages of her life and the dogs she had in each of those stages so one of the big surprises of your life is you know you you raised two sons and then when one of your sons was I guess in his twenties he told you that he was going to transition to being a woman and you had like no clue apparently that he was thinking about that what was it like to hear your son tell you that he was going to become your daughter because you went through this with your own mother you you know you're on the other end of it yeah I want to be careful because they want to protect my daughter's privacy to some degree here yes but I'll simply say that when I came out as trans my expectation was that people should be happy for me and I knew it was asking a lot of people but I still have the the hoping people would understand that I was doing a difficult thing that was necessary that would enable me to survive in the world later when my own child came out as trans I was surprised at how much I struggled at least at first with it and I suddenly have this insight into what I've been asking other people including my own mother to understand and in the end I think I was glad for her and I love my daughter and I'm really proud of her but it's funny how I think having me as a parent didn't make my daughter's transition easier in some ways I think it may have made it harder we have a lot of our dreams tied up in our children and it is hard to understand the obvious which is that your your children aren't here to live your dreams your children are here to live there this when I came out to my own mother twenty years ago she was eighty five she was an evangelical Christian she was a Republican and I had a pretty good sense that my coming out as trans was not gonna striker is the greatest thing that ever happened to her and yet I came out to her I told her the story and I started to cry and she got up out of her chair and she put her arms around me and she said I would never turn my back on my child I will always love you and I said but mom want to be a scandal when everyone finds out that I am your daughter now and she said well quite frankly yes but I will just and then she quoted first Corinthians and said the greatest of these is love she said to me love will prevail and in large measure it has in my life so in some ways what I'm trying to to to for my own daughter is to follow the example that my own mother set for me and to allow love to prevail you said you think it might have been harder for your daughter to transition because you are trans what if him being transmitted made it harder for your daughter as a high profile transgender activist I think I think I can take up a lot of the oxygen in the room and you know certainly within our house for a long time I was the kind of example of what it meant to be trance well my daughter's whipping trances not identical to mine by any means so I think she had to find room to be not just the woman that she wants to be but also the kind of to have a transgender experience on her own terms rather than online the seven a transgender daughter now make you think about generational differences in terms of how the culture response to people who are trans and how transaction to T. our understanding of being trans has evolved over the years since since you started being coming aware of yourself as trans which was long before you actually transition absolutely I mean I think for me when I came out as trans I felt like I had to spend the better part of a year or two explaining to people what was going on I was the first transgender person that most people that I knew had ever met or even heard of I had to explain the situation and to some degree I think I spent a lot of time apologizing I kind of wanna ask people's permission which was something my daughter and I think her generation finds absurd I mean it's I mean the my daughter came out she announced it on Facebook and most of her friends were happy for her and that was kind of the end of the story and I think for for my daughter's generation being trance is a thing to celebrate it's a thing that's fun and which brings people a sense of of of joy at the variety of life and of the different ways there are of being human that was not my experience my experience was very much a feeling that it was something I had to explain and almost apologize for so it's funny I think about that line from lord of the rings where at the very end Frodo is leaving he says something like we set out to save the shire and the shire has been saved but not for me I hope that through my writing and I hope you'll forgive with sounds like the egotism of this but I I hope that through my writing and through the advocacy that I've done it glad in in them the work I've done in the near times that some of that work has had an effect on making the world a little bit of an easier place for other transgender people and for the next generation in particular but for me you know life has been like this been hard I mean life is been joyful to I'm very lucky and I'm really happy but it's also been the entrances been really hard and there are times when I wish I could live in the world that my daughter lives in the world that some of this work has brought about now that you've been out as trans for over twenty years what do you say some of the fundamental differences between living life as a man you knew that you wanted to transition but you still in describing your past you describe yourself as having lived as a boy and as a man so what are some of the fundamental differences between having lived in as a man and living for over twenty years as an out woman beyond beyond beyond the physical just just in terms of how you see yourself how the world sees you how you make your way through life I know that's a really big question but I I'm sure I'm sure it's something you reflected on yeah I think there's a couple answers that I mean in some ways the biggest change is not going from male to female the biggest changes going from someone who has a secret to someone who doesn't have a secret and if you have a secret that is as profound as the question of who you are it's something that's gonna eat at you all the time so used to be I'd wake up in the morning and I think okay we're gonna do the guy thing again now and now I wake up in the morning and I don't think about it in a way gender has become something I think about a whole lot less I think it's not just the difference in male and female servants when being young and being middle aged and maybe I'm the wrong person to observe those changes but I try to live my life with courage as best I can I'll be honest and say that cheers live very close to the surface now when they didn't didn't used to maybe it's estrogen maybe it's simply being older maybe it's having experienced you know you live long enough you end up with a lot of errors in your side whatever the reason it doesn't take much to get me weeping and quite often weeping just because something wonderful happened so my emotions are definitely closer to the surface but then everything is closer to the surface and not only because of hormones but because I'm living in the world with no secrets Jennifer Finney Boylan I want to thank you so much for talking with us I wish you and your family well thank you Terry and my love to everybody at W. H. Y. Y. and the Philadelphia area the place where I grew up in the station that I listen to it's been an honor to be here with you I really appreciate hearing that thank you so much Jennifer Finney Boylan is new memoir is called good boy my life in seven dogs after we take a short break a rock critic Ken Tucker will review a new album by Grammy winner do a.

"To grab a headline by making Jeez is gay or by creating a nativist scene where it's merry and merry or Joseph and Joseph it is a point of high irritation for folks to grab religious items that are steeped in a two thousand year old tradition and then pretend that they actually represent whatever is the modern social left is cause they which typically tends to cut directly against whatever is the moral message of Christianity for example well now we also have the eighty eight moved to take secular symbols of Christmas and then to twist those into social justice warrior nonsense the latest example comes from Jennifer Finney Boylan who is a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times every two weeks or so Finney Boylan writes a piece about being transgender and be victimized in America and personal troubles that he has because Jennifer Finney Boylan as a transgender woman the latest example is a piece called route off the clearest holiday special yes that's right when you show your child in nineteen sixty four claymation special then you will have to explain to them that truly the stories about Rudolph liking other male reindeer currently the goal here now why exactly do we have the nation's most prestigious newspaper publishing our navel gazing think pieces about how Rudolph the red nosed reindeer ought to make clear children feel accepted and the answer is we we Chen it's it's dumb and its overwrought and the hijacking of children's symbols historical children symbols particular around Christmas time to push a leftist social agenda is pretty gross we see this one last time and time again he needs like SpongeBob square pants they did with the Teletubbies and then the minute you say yeah that's what you're doing I know we're not doing that it's it's full on gas lighting in it you'll you'll see members of the LGBTQ community so just as fun from square pants actually game he should be a symbol of of queer liberation and then people I like that's a kids show can you stop that now like how dare you get so upset when we have that you did we have set you I guess in our seems with Rudolph the red nosed reindeer and Jennifer Finney Boylan writing being given like eight hundred words to write about the meaning of Rudolph the red nosed reindeer to a transgender person hi honestly this is it we we've now reached leftist Madeline's stage where it's just intersectional person fill in blank here takes fill in historical item symbol or piece of art here and turns it into filling because here right that's the Madlib you see here is the piece wait my father said incredulously are you crying it was early summer probably around nineteen eighty four my father and I were watching the classic Rankin bass stop motion production of Rudolph the red nosed reindeer on television three characters from the island of misfit toys sat around the campfire the Charlie in the box the spot elephants and a Dolly for sue it's seemingly typical doll these problems were many years later revealed to be psychiatric looks like we've been up for that looks like were forgotten again spotted owls and said beaten down by the merciless cruelty of the world might as well just go to bed and start dreaming about next year Charlie lamented retracting into his box in a dark winter sky a single light shone from the clouds Justin sleigh bells rang through the cold stop motion night I haven't any dreams let you dream tally said Sam approaching sleigh bells grew louder wait a minute spot elephants what's that is it is it this version of rough the red nose reindeer has been around for twenty years in nineteen eighty four it wasn't a soldier for my nineteen sixties childhood it because tears recognition shimmer in my eyes no it was the fact that then as now the subtext of this ridiculous story was the truth of my own improbable life yeah I think that the definition of self absorption is that you think everything is about you if you think the red nose Rudolph the red nosed reindeer was made about you the subtext of this story is the truth of your improbable life I a fabulously Blundell who doesn't like to make toys ranger was cast out by those are supposed to love him on account of an accident of birth a whole island populated by outkast welcome to Rudolph the red nosed reindeer the clearest holiday special ever I'm sure the conservatives love this old holiday just it will be a few infuriated by the suggestion not in theory it just moral like puzzled mildly confused again what why do you think in nineteen sixty four special which is just about the broader issue of bullying and what Rudolph the red nosed reindeer is about is not just bullying bullying of people who don't fit into the mold why is that always turned into a story about queer kids Hey what what like why why why do what every story I believe in the story about LGBTQ issues I was in this by the way with the it gets better campaign so the it gets better campaign suggests that bullying or at least a huge percentage bullying is about the sexual orientation of the kids being bullied as I was viciously believe in high school and junior high let me just say it has nothing to sexual orientation kids are nasty to kids who do not fit into the box and that could be a sexual orientation thing the vast majority of cases it's not is the new short or think he's too tall instigated you've got to give us just getting my kids are nasty that's just what they are let's turn that into a referendum on your own personal sexual journey it like we did this sort of navel gazing it's really it's really ridiculous but according to Jennifer Finney Boylan in The New York Times everything is about Jennifer Finney Boylan if you watch the show without understanding its central conflict is lay people quite different are constantly Shannon who million well I don't know what you're you're watching no we all got that we just didn't think it was about Rudolph being gay it's not Rudolph the red nosed reindeer I can tell you that a show in which at the climax even stand to realize that maybe he was wrong conservatives seem to miss the point of a lot of things having to do with Christmas actually well I mean like Christmas last I checked was about the birth of Jesus and the creation of Christianity which comes along with a whole value set so we're talking about people missing thing about Christmas I'm to go with the people who think that Christmas is actually about gay liberation probably that rob only that now get your make case forget liberation of time you have you have to have yourself a good Christmas it's a free country but if people missing the point yeah I think like here's the point and shoot you just went right over the top of it as the road off the whole movie feels as LGBTQ friendly to me as any episode of queer eye or Steven universe for the award you know except for the fact that there is no gay sex between between would often the other male reindeer between rough and what's in there's plenty of clear coating Christmas town so Jennifer Finney Boylan like this is just an exploration of a columnist weird thinking because maybe you're seeing words in your Cheerios man maybe maybe the maybe just in words in the Cheerios after rood US red nose shines in his father downers cave for instance causing town or a curiously profound mortification the old man comes up with a fake nose first what where you know so as not to offend the straits it's not very comfortable rough says you'll wear it like it is father plays there more important things than comfort self respect maybe it goes without saying this is exactly how I felt putting on a coat and tie due to my right wing all boys high school before coming out as translators later is worth adding that the character of the misfit male ranger would often the special was voiced by Billy may Richards a forty something woman okay really like now okay so also bart Simpson is ways by a woman like very often children are voiced by women because men don't have high voices prospector Yukon Cornelius is sexuality doesn't enter into the plot of course but the scene that was delivered that was deleted from the nineteen sixty four original we learned that even though he claimed to be searching for silver gold in fact you comes he was looking for a peppermint mine no further questions your honor oh my god and then there's her me the elf beautiful and one were all the other elves resemble bulbous nose Vulcans all he wants to be is able to be himself a dentist in fact in so instead of being forced to dwell in Santa soul crushing toy factory what do you boys process nothing her me explains I just don't like to make toys his mother was roars with disapproval and the other elves clock and go to school to ask not happy in my work I guess he says her me tell me about it and yet okay hi again can you please like just leave the kids alone please stop I pick pick any number of films that deal with gay liberation and made every year they're all nominated for Oscars like just leave the kids literature alone is that too much aspect politicization of of children's literature is really irritating in an extraordinary way meanwhile The Washington Post we have a piece from canton Georgia in editor and writer please stop making jokes about gender pronouns when people tell you there's they might hurt people more than you realize again like this is our culture now welcome.
