there's two classes of bully, one the "push your buttons," waits-for-you-after-class-on-the-school-property-line-with-four-other-kids-with-dented-heads type, the other triumphantly runs over saying "I told the proctor you were cussing and she says to come to her for your punishment"

yeah, note that there's "trans 4-year-olds" a la Desmond is Amazing (of course never against their parents' will, mysteriously) but nobody's talking "gay 4-year-olds" because the gays learned to AVOID stereotypes instead of jumping into them headlong ...

part of it I think is because "gay" means something while "trans" carefully excluded actual dysphoria since 2016, because if you wanted to signal to everyone who saw you that you're quirky you had to spend some money on cat's eye glasses/hair dye/tiny hats

the people insisting on it are red flags, like how the 5'o-clock-shadow shower masturbators were the ones SO insistent on locker rooms, bathrooms, and prisons: the trans women kicked out weren't trying to pass; it'd be like someone taking advantage of the unfair firing of a Grade 8 coach for having a husband to go "yes YES I can be trussssssted with children"

I think it's because there was a nontroversy over whether drag was Mandatory or whether it must be Banned Forever (like "womxn" a while back)--wicked cishomos dressed in outrageous mockeries of womanhood to make the straights laugh at them?!

then the ALT-RIGHT MAGA CHUDS appeared and they closed ranks around "a cornerstone of the LGBT experience" and forgot that there even CAN be a controversy that doesn't fit into the DeSantis-vs.-Kamala Harris paradigm

yeah, the gasket was blown when they said "you don't have to have a need to become the opposite gender (so binaristic!) or surgery (medicalism!) or dress differently (straight-passing) or do literally anything other than change their name": and they always have nice-SOUNDING motte-and-bailey arguments ("older women have lip hair! having short hair doesn't make you less female!") and it all just melted together

I think it was because of Jenner (a Republican who said you had to have dysphoria and hormones didn't magically melt away your skeleton except in terms of osteoporosis)

that's from studies on the role of categories in thought--some cultures "construct" sexuality as either same- vs. opposite-sex; others as top vs. bottom, and you wouldn't really be able to "think your way out" of those "natural" categories until someone told you about alternative ones (like how "bi" became popular in the 70s)

that's why people in Latin America don't like being forced into the very different US-based categories like "queer" or "trans"; it'd be like asking if Oda Nobunaga was a Democrat or a Republican

then a bunch of college sophomores half-remember all this, the hivemind makes it mandatory, and they start writing up lists of demands for the blindsided administratium

that retrenchment/cope/narrative's been around for over a year now--basically "trans" now means "you don't have to have dysphoria, or surgery, or makeup, or dress differently" so it's a noncategory now

and "trans" is transphobic because it implies that "trans women" are somehow different from women or have ever not been women

and it all vanishes in a puff of logic

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phWcmwlpjQo this scene's all punching and talking, but you have a REAL contrast between a supe grappling with the unachievable ideals of an open society that doesn't live up to them, vs. a supe purely about rule with a fist so tight his victims feel grateful for it; there's something that stays behind for the 99.99999% of us who aren't earthshattering superspuds or peasants on a volcano planet 1,000 light-years away

it's why the Sith were so interesting even in the prequels because they were so bent on self-seeking they crawled their way to the throne, while in the sequels they just have big ships, blow up a village so they can find thousands of more ships, and yell Britishly; then every planet somehow overthrows them at once

that's what made WandaVision different from half the MCU, it wasn't just "okay, we filled our quota for quips": it's not "Captain Wasserface knocks Particle Man with a blast of water, then Captain I-Beam hits him so hard the ground cracks magma, and she makes a smart-aleck comment about men fighting over her" (felt dirty typing that)

I see these failures as basically FAILURES to use animation (or CGI for the MCU/Star Wars): each way of showing something to an audience (opera, splatter painting, Soviet Girl Meets Tractor painting, concrete poem) has its own rules and "grammar" determined by the substance itself: that's why you don't waste a comic strip or cartoon on having the characters just yipyap at each other (it's even called "illustrated radio"); if you have an Important Message for readers, don't make it 50 pages long, otherwise the only devotees will be weird sex-culty types enveloped by the other 1,150 pages (lookin' at you, Ayn Rand); Dr. Who was a cavalcade of terrific female characters, then they decided to "stick it to the chuds" with Thirteen and made her a giggling airhead for half a season until they went back to the cavalcade of weird shit

so bringing it back to the 2022-3 purge, even if the shows aren't actually that similar there's a sense that they were drawn the same, run by the same people or sort of people (these creators are queer 20-35yos, not a 55yo experienced in some international gay underground animation scene), same beats and poses and pacing (since it's the same boarders), same Joe Rogan jokes (those definitely won't age badly by like 2023), same Anglo-American social categories (there's no Latin travestis, nothing besides shallow undergrad politics, little European animation influence): so no matter the differences, it still feels that a lot of different versions of the same show are getting axed (only Kid Cosmic and Infinity Train looked like they didn't come from the same studio)--my reaction's more "oh, that one ... too?"

"CalArts/beanmouth" is so much more than a jab at identical style/posing, it's a whole worldview--everyone goes to the same college, the same rotation of jobs in Burbank-Glendale, the same soft-left politics, the same needs they're expressing when they make animation ("representation," "comfort watching"); that means the same weird way that they go about insisting that an 11yo can awaken to being "aroace" and "hemidemigenderfluid" ("that was how it was to me! I didn't like wearing pants in 4th grade!")

there's no Southern Gothic gay, no Larry David-type warped-Jewish-humor gay, no gay supervillains; even Invincible has a more complicated gay character than the stereotype (the now-cancelled shows themselves might've gone past the stereotypes, but there's no stereotype about Invincible)

it's like how people mock "capeshit" for insisting that the apex of the art is superbeings having flashy yet bloodless CGI fights, ending with the protags staring into the sunset portentiously uttering "somehow, Palpatine returned" (not saying that's true for the MCU, but that that's the stereotype: I can enjoy a Big Explosions movie, but they're remote from irl experience and have a place)

basically box-ticking: that's why it's a bit amusing to see the Tumblrinas/Twits suddenly realize that a show that SHOULD have everything they want--a dark-skinned character teasing lesbianism, a Black autist, the wypipo all small-dicked Nazis or Beckys--is suddenly "tokenist": it's stitched together from all of their contradictory demands, but they don't like it when they finally see it in good lighting

it's like how under the right circumstances Dead End Trailer Park would've been condemned as patronizing and showing trans people as ungrateful and impossible to satisfy; at least Q Force had enough tongue in cheek to be a little Drawn Together

again, "queer" has taken off while the actual rates of "are you horny for the same sex?" and "is your current configuration of sex psychically painful?" remain pretty level, even accounting for the endless "yes-but" quibbling or induced dysphoria etc.

it reminds me of the 70s when the movement was "you're either bi--or you're in denial!" so that gave an escape valve to men and women who didn't want the 2.1-kids-by-21/martini-lunch-and-dinner-and-dessert-dead-by-70 lives stereotypical of their parents (or really a generation earlier); and on the other side of the aisle that meant the stinkeye from gays/lesbians at the man and woman trying to get comfortable in the bar/social space

so people attracted to both sexes always existed (as the more militant will be quick to remind you), but the category "bi" had to be named, created, contested; same story for "workplace harassment"--they had to coin a new term for "the boss has certain non-negotiable EXPECTATIONS for your 'secretarial duties' "

I think a lot of this started with "ally hate" 2012-14: sure there's gonna be glory hogs and "I am trying to help you!" cringery, but the effect was that "if you're white/cis you're automatically suspect and definitely cut out from any decisions": so 1. students scrambled for any way to flee the stigma of supposedly not being stigmatized by society (majority, "privilege," whatever you call it) and 2. students also scrambled for a leg up over the rest--"I'm not an icky straight, I'm hemidemisexual who just happens to be dating a nonbinary assigned female at birth!"

it also had the advantage of not requiring real politics--you had people getting beat over the Wi Spa disaster, but no protests against US support for the Saudi or Honduran regimes actually having dirty cops murder trans women

why is so much of this overwrought activism about defending the most annoying stereotypes of the group? like, with women's activism it's only the obvious frauds that turn into media circuses (Duke lacrosse, Mattress Girl, the 30 newsmagazines doubling down on Amber Heard after the unanimous verdict); and remember that Smithsonian infographic saying you couldn't expect Black people to shower, show up for work, or talk "proper" English? the "groomer" slam spent about 2 months on Twitter before the DeSantis faction picked it up and RAN

previous generations of gay men and lesbians had their James Charles or Political Rad Les types, but they were never allowed to punish everyone else in the community; but since ~2012 the LGBs of younger generations were shuffled off as "not marginalized enough" or "straight-passing" by the hivemind of 17-21-year-old fangirls that got in charge

a little recent-historygeeking, radfems had basically ruled the roost for decades, and were responsible for what made Tumblr so Tumblr--but they were only the first

the dystopian "progressive stack" emerged during OWS 2011, which allowed for a battle royale to break out until they found a left-handed deaf-mute non-normative audiovisually radical Jewish Wiccan transwoman trans woman wheelchair-bound in a wheelchair

everything they hate about the TERFs is they constantly have to see in themselves--the dismissal of real politics for tiddly issues, the constant hall-monitoring and competition and purges of allies, the Cluster B drama-queening and the meltdowns and the undisguised inceldom and the Tsoukalos-level claims about every past society and the mobbing and the half-understood sophomore classes; that's all why they dump on the TERFs so hard, because they recognize their own dark reflection, because they were the First; same goes for how they loathe Zionists but accept Hoteps (dunno where Serbian nationalists stand)

the closest analogy to today from the 70s was the fad insisting that "everyone's either bi--or in denial!" leading to man/woman couples getting The Stare while trying to find a table in the local gay watering hole

but back then they didn't have the social media Narcissism Machine

you can even get the same thing in mainstream feminism: one prof will say "this is all genetic" and another says "this is all socialization," and they won't even be published in the same magazines; give four undergrads four envelopes with contradictory messages that say "patriarchy is what causes harm to women," "patriarchy is what benefits men," "patriarchy is what benefits women by patronizing them as too peabrained and dependent to be responsible for their own actions," and "patriarchy is whatever harms men, since men made the systems imposing the double standards" they'd all bob their heads

it's also why people misunderstand peer review: it's not "does article X say something new in the sum total of collective knowledge of our field," it's basically "does the article passes the basic level of professional writing and avoids some of the basic mistakes when you're unintentionally (or deliberately) about to screw up in a way the field sees a lot?"--like if a geneticist announced that she'd hunted down her subjects' grandparents and great-great-grandparents until she found a felon, or if a political scientist drew conclusions about how peace happens by studying Europe 1872-1913, 1919-38, and 1946-1988 (and these are real cases)

it's just like how r/Atheism always sounds more like a Chick tract than Carl Sagan, because they're just not AWARE that "Da Church imposed the death penalty for reading and the proof is nothing was written down!" isn't something even the snake-handlers believe; social hegemony, baby!

it is interesting how the stereotypes build up: if you had a brain and a body with only 1% testosterone for 15-30 years, this is still the stereotype once you're swimming in the new hormone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VgG1pXnMfc

and the opposite stereotype is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJHctyXPmkg note that it's the guy who still HAS all his testosterone who almost got picked up and hurled through plate glass by this Tusken Raider; all the estradiol in the world couldn't stop the impulse to bellowingly chase people down with a stanchion

then a slightly different group of narcs discovers their techniques and immediately uses it against them and they're FLOORED--they were supposed to have this all to themselves!

I know the non-James Charles-type gay guys and lesbians spar-armed the NAMBLA and "political lesbian" (i.e., "kiss my lotus if you want your bachelor's degree") types in the 90s, not just because it might look bad to have them under the umbrella but because they were exactly the sort of maggoty infiltrators you didn't want anywhere near an organization

the Ls and Gs (and Ts) community then was more "basic" and older than "I'm 17 and just discovered there's a name for my horniness": by 2012 the reins were firmly in the hands of yaoi-poisoned sophomores with nose rings

the previous generation knew how to dissociate themselves, nowadays they're practically going door-to-door reminding their neighbors "Chris-Chan is a trans woman who stuck her penis into her mother and asked how she compared to her father in bed; Jessica Yaniv grubs in the trash for used tampons--and is a trans woman; can you promise me you'll spend at least half an hour a week practicing associating the category of trans women with even these twisted freaks, so you don't accidentally misgender them? remember, Basic Human Rights are not a treat to be handed out for good behavior!"

they REALLY don't understand what they're doing

just like with the "Black people can't be expected to work, show up on time, or talk with anything but the most stereotypical accent, that's white supremacy!" poster, they always beeline for extremely prejudiced stances, and they can't recognize they're falling into a trap because "well I'm not the sort of person who'd support something like that!"

so here they're tacitly saying white kids can identify with anyone who doesn't share their traits, while girls and Black kids are mysteriously missing that part of the brain that lets them understand that someone who doesn't Look Like Them is a person

(and even if they're not implicitly saying that, under their own rules of "you're not allowed to disagree with any bad-faith interpretation" that's the gospel truth now)

and a lot of the "queer" category is "oh, I don't have dysphoria, or hormones, or surgery, or dress different, or want to date someone of the same sex however it's defined--I don't OWE you any performativity!!!" it's like what bi was in the 70s or like 1990-2008, basically "we're allowed in this bar, and you can't demand that I prove I also go out with the same sex!"

interestingly most all of the complaints are about the "euphoric" MtFs are that they're still manly or even pathologically exaggerated--just look at this steer puffing and bellowing and filing lawsuits to demand people look at a cock and balls: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaliJ-k2mXk

ironically just before they touched the trans woman third rail and became dubbed TERFs ~2012-14, radfems attacked trans men for this reason along with gay men (DOUBLE patriarchy!)

it's basically what we're probably seeing: and it's not "social contagion" per se

as we walk around life we classify things we see by categories we've learned: some of these are cultural--"blue" or "blue-green," "gay" or "top/bottom," but they're describing the same THING

so around 2015 you get this new category, that 1. says you don't have to have an overwhelming urge to swap sexes and 2. has been iterated to a cohort who can spend up to a decade hating the inevitable changes caused by getting older than 10 years old, treating them as an outside imposition on their bodies, as society forcing its norms onto them against all their will--no wonder a mushy, non-dysphoric attitude proves so attractive to a certain group of people aged 17-22

it also runs squarely into another mandate of current cultural politics: you ALSO can't voice/write/be the coffee boy for a studio that produces a character unless you share your traits with them: usually what happens is that the character just ... isn't in the show any more, period

then the pendulum swings and all the criticisms that were forbidden in 2020 come out--"oh, you assume minority viewers can't understand a character unless you spoonfeed them?" "isn't this just more tokenism from rich white lady/guilty MBA antiracism?"

a lot of this is how language works in the brain--the same sexual configuration would be categorized as "gay" in a man in Houston, but "top" for someone in San Antonio; a "fabulous gay" would be a "marica," etc.; so it's more complicated than just social contagion+siloing (which is also a big factor--there's a reason they're all left-liberal, college undergrads in certain disciplines, dyed hair, piercings, cannabis, "spiritual but not religious": most are also NON-zealots even if they get swept up, since 1. most people aren't that obessive about any one thing and 2. that means surgery)

that's part of why they put so much emphasis on "representation" and "normalization," but instead just give you SEVERAL categories that are basically "not dysphoric, but also not cishet and male," "not dysphoric, but also not cishet and male," "not dysphoric, but also not cishet and male," so basically they haven't found any useful answer for themselves

I think another factor is the Millennials aging out (everyone's 30-40 now) and more able to look back on their youth, while Z/Alpha is still in the 17-22-yo wave--and the next generations aren't gonna stop, the HR and IT departments will make sure of that

but what was different was that being accused of "doing an -ism" was entirely new 2012-14, back even before the radfems lost their top position when they touched the transwoman third rail (unflamboyant gay men are still in exile when the radfems called them "doubly patriarchal" lol)

so now there's a cohort that went through all that undergrad drama and even holds similar positions, but is able to say "yeah I remember doing the same, but it was counterproductive to the cause": so Alphas will scream at the "obsolete" generation but secretly know deep down that it'll happen to them to, that they're going to become dentists

the Water Buffalo Incident's from 1993, but it didn't turn into a cycle of "yeah, but you're a Black MAN" becoming "yeah, but you're a Black CIS woman" becoming "yeah, but you're a Black trans woman attracted to MEN," etc.--not until Tumblr

it's moved on to TikTok now, but that's got such an unwieldy interface: Tumblr was such a delight by comparison, you could search pages and pages of fanart and it'd helpfully provide all their longwinded rants right next to them; TT's not as good at really conveying political messages as Tumblr even if the Race/Gender 101 and Oppression Olympics factors are the exact same, it's all on a scroll
