The Rebels Go to the Movies: The Matrix

you_were_a_guy6qy18.jpg

We've created a podcast within a podcast: The Rebels Go to the Movies!  In our first episode, we watch and review The Matrix.   SO MANY SPOILERS.  So see it before you listen. If you haven't seen it yet, why not????? It's so good! Lily Wachowski recently confirmed it is, indeed, an allegory for the transgender experience.

Transition: Done! Now What?

finish_line9by1i.png

 

Listener Devin sent this question many months ago (and we re-recorded this episode to replace the one we lost when Kath's hard drive died). It's great to have accomplished everything: coming out, the surgeries, the name change, building a support group. But now what?

Nostalgia and Your Old Wardrobe

Listener Cormac asks if Faith felt nostalgic when getting rid of her old clothes

 
We have previous episodes on Developing a Sense of Style and Feminize for Free. They're female-oriented episodes but a lot of the advice applies to guys too.

Faith loves Manda & The Marbles.  You should too.
 
Get your own Music Band T-shirt like Steve Buscemi wore in 30 Rock.
 
High-quality Inkbox fake tattoos seems like a great Christmas present for Faith, right? Yeah but not, like, 20 of them.  Lesson learned.
 
Faith only wears black T-shirts.  Lou Malnati's Pizza doesn't make a black T-shirt.  (Note: Lou's is not Chicago's best deep dish.  Giordano's is. Specifically, the 730 Rush St location for its convenience to Kath's old lab at Northwestern Memorial.)
 
Salvation Army dislikes gay people no matter what they say.
Goodwill isn't great either but at least they're not actively homophobic.
 
Out Of The Closet is a national chain of non-homophobic, non-exploitative thrift  stores that directly help people living with HIV and AIDS. From their website: Ninety-six cents of every dollar collected at the stores directly fund AIDS Healthcare Foundation's HIV/AIDS programs and their new housing services, as well as on-site pharmacies and free HIV testing. AND they were featured in First Girl I Loved, a super-gay movie WE loved.
Queer Exchange is a buy and sell group on Facebook.  They have them for lots of cities, not just NYC. But Housing Works is NYC only.

GRS recovery: At Home

Faith finished her time in the hospital and is now home, recovering.  Her final day as an inpatient was an ordeal.  Post-op care is going much better at home.

 

We discuss everything about vaginoplasty in two different previous episodes so check them out if any terms are unfamiliar.

 

Blood pressure is measured with a sphygmomanometer (not a "sphygmamomometer" as we mispronounced it).

Black Lives Matter

Systemic racism is deadly. We need to put in the work to educate ourselves and start to proactively dismantle destructive organizations and unquestioned assumptions. We're using this episode to amplify the voices of POCs and keep society moving along the road to recovery.  CLICK THESE LINKS.

Black Lives Matter 

If you have some cash, consider donating to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund

Activists we love: Munroe Bergdorf and Janaya Future Khan

Podcasts we recommend: Queer Women of Color and Afroqueer

VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE in your local elections. Here's how to register and here's how to find when they are and who's running.

Merriam Webster improved and clarified the definition of racism.

The protests are working. Minneapolis will disband the police force. Other areas are discussing defunding their police forces. "Breonna's Law" outlaws no-knock warrants in Louisville. The Louisville police chief was removed from his post after an unrelated shooting by police officers-- another unarmed black citizen, this time at a protest. Louisville's mayor has issued a request for proposal for a comprehensive, top-to-bottom review of the entire Louisville police department  The officers who killed Breonna are on administrative leave. (The question of their firings or prosecutions come after the investigation.) Keep it up.

Redlining is an example of deliberate, institutionally-deployed racism.  We still deal with its repercussions today.

The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 is just one of many attacks on thriving African American communities throughout history.

Read The New Jim Crow about racial discrimination in law enforcement and the rise of mass incarceration.

Finally New York State has a special prosecutor's office to investigate cases where a person dies while in police custody. Previously, these investigations were done by local district attorneys. This old system was crippled by built-in conflicts of interest, since local district attorneys have to work with cops on their other cases. 

A good article about armed cops in schools aka "school resource officers".

Remember that stupid whitewashed Stonewall movie?  At least the Marsh P. Johnson character appeared onscreen for four seconds. 

Kath is always talking about asymptotes: things approaching zero, always getting closer to it but never quite getting there.

11 Rapid-Fire Questions From Reddit (fixed audio)

An awesome Redditor sent Faith 11 great questions and we go through them all, bam bam bam, for your listening pleasure.

The Pitch Drop Experiment is a demonstration of viscosity where pitch in a funnel yields one very slow drop every 7-9 years (until the lab installed air conditioning which then slowed the rate of drippage too ever 12-13 years).

Of course Flying Synagogues are a thing. Or they were in 2006.

Pandemic Tips for Transguys

Neither of us are transguys.  Still, we know how to kill time during SIP (shelter-in-place).

Practice tying your ties! Actually, no.  Instead, perfect that bowtie. Long ties are vectors. Gross.

Prep for your grandpa days and learn to whittle! Smoke a pipe!  Figure out your future grandpa smell!  (Usually tobacco, hair pomade, aftershave, and grandpa funk, but do it your way.)

How Can Faith Tell If She Passes?

And does it matter? Why? Let's say she passes.  Is she done with the transgender community? And is that shitty? Why? Anyway, here are some links:

 

Faith is using an app to count calories and it's actually helping her lose weight.  Also it's kind of  interesting learning about the calorie density of different foods.  We call it "Data Not Deprivation".
 
Faith loves Grimes. Grimes has a new album.  And Faith REALLY loves Grimes.  Kath is glad Grimes is pregnant because Faith dislikes kids and Kath is pretty sure if kids weren't in the picture, Faith would leave Kath for Grimes.  
 
The "thorn" phoneme aka the "th" sound, which Faith couldn't pronounce as a kid, so she had mouth surgery to fix because otherwise she would be bullied. She was still bullied, of course, but not for the thorn thing.
 
Faith is a very accomplished podcaster and her other podcasts include the Last Podcast on The Left, Hardcore History, Serial , and the first- ever podcast, War of the Worlds .
 
Acquitted child-murdering mother Casey Anthony did not work at Universal Studios, but kept the lie going as long as she could.  
 
Food life hack: vegetables are very nutrient-dense and low calorie.  Roast chunks of carrots, potatoes, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, zucchini, and red onion with salt and a little olive oil, and toss a little lemon tahini dressing on top. OMG yum.

Vaginoplasty 101 Part II

Post-surgical recovery, physical therapy, and the patient panel were in the second part of the NYU-Langone day-long class in vaginoplasty.  Faith got antsy toward the end of the class but Kath took her to the Waterfront Ale House right after (1 block away) and everything was okay.

Peggy Huddleston wants you to heal from surgery faster.  Visualization and breathing have empirical data supporting them but reiki lacks reliable evidence at this time. Trick or Treatment is a great book that looks at high-quality scientific publications about several alternative medical practices.

The dilator set: throw away the purple and work your way up to the orange!

Vaginoplasty 101 Part I

NYU-Langone offers a day-long class in vaginoplasty for women who have their GRS scheduled in the near future.  Caregivers are able to attend too!  So we went, listened, took notes, asked questions, and ate sandwiches.  We learned SO MUCH that we couldn't fit it all into one episode. We could barely fit it into two.  So enjoy these mega-episodes!

A hand mirror is recommended for looking at one's brand-new vagina.  Your phone, or a compact, won't work.  Sure, any hand mirror will do. But here, we like to go big or go home.

Psychology Today can help you find a therapist.  (That's the US link, so go here if you're CanadianMexican, or if you live outside North America.)

The OUT Foundation partnered with NYU-Langone for the class. They can provide resources for people traveling for their GRS, and seem pretty cool overall.  They have an inclusive gym finder, host the Big Gay Field Day , and started the Don't Be An Asshole Tour.

Faith The Grifter

Annadelvey-sorokin-5-9-19-6.jpg

Faith wants to be a grifter. Help Kath talk her out of it. This episode is kind of a throwback to the first podcast we dd together, Fool Me Once about scams (patrons can hear all 3 episodes we did)

A bounty of links for this episode:

The Community Service Society of New York helped Faith take on her health insurance company.

The Mt Sinai plastic surgery dept staff supporting Dr. Avanessian are amazing human beings-- so amazing, the famously misanthropic Faith DaBrooke wrote thank you notes to them
 
Faith says, see Birds of Prey .
Kath says, see Parasite .
 
Read the book My Friend Anna, so you can learn more about the shitty human being Anna Delvey, whose black chiffon babydoll dress is 99% of the reason Faith wants to be a grifter.
 
"Oh no!  I dropped my twelve pack of delicious Sticky's chicken fingers! My boss is gonna KILL me!"
 
Ear Hustle podcast from prison, where we'll definitely end up.
 
Orange is the New Black , the book, not the show, is really good.

If You Can’t Take HRT

If there's a medical reason (or any other reason) that makes HRT impossible for you, are you screwed? Thanks to a great question sent in by listener N.R. whose pulmonary embolism makes HRT too risky for her, Faith and Kath discuss what other options exist. They also think up terrible metaphors.  

You can have an excellent stew without meat.  Seriously, try it.  We're not even vegan and we love this recipe.

Faith’s New Dirtypillows

 medical_bra.jpg

BREASTS! Faith discusses her recent breast augmentation surgery: the ordeal itself (not bad), the immediate followup (kind of bad), and the weeks since then (not great, but getting better every day). Next time they tell you to grow a pair, just say "no thanks. I'll BUY a pair!"  No, wait, don't say that.  That's weird.

Supporting A Gender-Questioning Partner

Awesome partner Jenny asked us "I was wondering if you could discuss the gender spectrum a bit and what it means to be gender questioning. My partner doesn't really know how they feel but they know that they don't feel entirely their assigned gender. As a straight cis woman, I am having a really hard time understanding these feelings and what to do, if anything, to support them in helping them figure out what makes them most comfortable." We discuss how labels can be both helpful and unhelpful, the kinds of questions necessary, what societal strictures should be ignored, and the frustrations Jenny's partner may encounter.

There's a great guide to figuring out a non-binary identity from Micah at Everyday Feminism.

Sorry about the dog noises. They think they deserve peanut butter to keep them quiet whenever the microphone is out.  We're trying to break that habit.

Wearing The Trans Flag 101

Gaysper is an adorable gay ghost with his own twitter account. Faith made Kath a trans flag Gaysper tshirt. What are the rules for cis allies wearing trans gear? Or even for trans people wearing trans gear? Is it safe?  Does it spread awareness? Or is it basically invisible to most people?

Even Introverts Need A Community

Ugh, MORE talk about the Philadelphia Trans Wellness Conference?? Yes but this will be the last episode where we go over the PTWC the until next year, we promise. But all you wonderful listeners who stopped to talk with us at PTWC got us drunk on dopamine, so all this Philly material is kind of your fault. But it also brings up the importance of community,even to introverted misanthropes like ourselves.  While online communities are invaluable and even lifesaving, there's just something about being in a room full of people like you.

Next week's Philadelphia Transgender Wellness Conference is going to be amazing. We hope we see you there. COME SAY HI AT OUR TABLE!  But 75% of the reason we got to Philly is the food.  For that reason, please educate yourself on the following important information:

1) There's an art to ordering a Philly cheesesteak, and it's worth getting it right.

2) You can have a sandwich of pork roll or Taylor ham, but it's smart to know the difference.

Is 2019 a Bad Time to Come Out Trans?

Is the political climate right now conducive to coming out trans? In this week's episode we answer a listener question: "Someone close to me has come out to me as trans and I’m so proud of her but so many things in the news scare me. I know she finds them scary too. I just wonder, if you were facing starting a transition in today’s world, would you? Would any of the threats to trans rights going on today give you pause if you were still at the beginning of this process?"
