Video Flips the Script on the Ridiculous Questions Cis People Ask Trans People All the Time
"Was it difficult to come out to your parents as cisgender?"
Going to be frank here: as a trans woman, the questions at the root of this funny video are questions I deal with all the futzing time. So it’s funny (and incredibly fulfilling) to hear those questions turned on their ears and fired right back at people. Think about it. How ridiculous do these questions sound? Pretty ridiculous, right? So why do people keep asking them?
Anyway, check out the video. It’s funny, and it’s perfectly toned. And the next time you find you’re dying to figure out someone else’s gender by asking them about their genitals, do them (and all of us) a favor: don’t.
