Queer and Queerer Ep. 47 – Henry Kissenger Got a Boob Job


After a special monologue by Peterson, we discuss BODIES. How do we talk about bodies? What’s that intersexuality thing? What challenges do trans people still face? We lay it all out on the table and just talk about all our hesitations and yet curiosities with bodies, mixed with some recent news.  Take a listen, and then tell us your hangups and joys when it comes to bodies!

    I love the talk about breaking the gender binary.

    With regards to the trans marriage issue, it seems like most states besides Texas just pretend it doesn’t exist. Though it’s scary that they would even try, the idea of Texas lawmakers being unable to pin down a definition of sex that would exclude everyone they want from marriage makes me giddy. I love that it pushes the issue in to the light for them, and forces them to realize that they can’t have and eat their cake.

    I’m a legally-married lesbian trans woman in Utah. Back in 2008, when I started realizing that I’m trans, the first thing I did is come out to my cisgendered partner of three years. Luckily, she decided to stick it out with me. We got married last September, about two months before I got my legal gender marker switched from “M” to “F”. Convincing people that we’re actually married is a pain in the butt, but it’s worth it, and I feel extremely fortunate.
