Lib fem mag before lib fem existed COSMOPOLITAN says, "Yes, There's a Safe Way to Have a Cannibalism Fetish..." by BEB in GenderCritical
Oh yeah, I don't disagree that people were thinner in general. But Cosmo models were extremely skinny and the goal was to be as thin as possible. Living on a lettuce leaf, black coffee and cigarettes was lauded.
It always makes me laugh when magazines and newspapers shriek about heroin chic or the waif look because frankly the models are no thinner than they were in 1975.

Yeah, I think the earlier 70s were quite unique because women were for the first time taking charge of their sexuality and for a while "acting like men" with hookups and office jobs, plus all the coke. It's interesting to me that the look for woman at that time was at once hyperfeminine - a ton of hair, nails, glossy lips and lashes - and also kind of anti-sexual with the very thin body type that was exhalted.

I was both scared by and drawn by Cosmo because the issues I saw were all 70s ones and it was all about having loads of casual sex and getting men to think you were good in bed, OR being alert to men who might be into sex when you weren't (apparently hair along the little finger is a SUREFIRE SIGN for "watch him - he's keen on sex", and wearing very long fingernails and low-cut wrap dresses that showed your very bony clavicle which looked nothing like my body. There wasn't any romance in Cosmo! But it was about SEX which was of course fascinating.
I believe Nikkie de Jager was forced or at least influenced by his mother to transition by Kally in GenderCritical
That also really throws a spanner in the works when it comes to the idea that blockers are needed so a person will pass better. If a male bodied person grows to extremely tall, that's not going to help random people on the street look at them and think "everyday woman". So they will NOT blend in. And if their penis doesn't grow properly then they're going to need the most dangerous and complication-ridden kind of SRS if they have it. Which begs the question - why do this dangerous thing when it won't have any positive effect other than slightly less of an adam's apple and beard?
And for girls, of course, being very short isn't going to help either.

Indeed. BUT I suspect people are trying to say that denying a kid hormone blockers is like trying to force a gay kid to be straight. It's not. A young person can explore their sexuality with kids their own age without lasting physical damage, regardless of which sex they end up preferring. Many gay people started with straight relationships and plenty of straight people explored same-sex relationships. Your preference can change, or not, and that's OK. No harm done. Hormone blockers and surgeries? Not so much.

Can we talk about Netflix "Cuties"? Men--dads--tell me it's no big deal by WrongToy in GenderCritical
I'm misremembering - the "auction scene" is online and she's wearing a dress that's basically like a fancy chemise. It's a horrible scene because it's like she does kind of understand but also has no real idea.
I wouldn't be surprised. I'd forgotten that the storyline develops so that Brooke's character forms a sexual relationship with the photographer who simultaneously treats her like a father, and she's all of 12. It's extremely gross.
I think she's naked on a silver platter in the "auction" scene but in such a way that nothing is really seen.
The Blue Lagoon is basically just terribly, terribly cheesy with dreadful dialogue delivered by two very pretty young people. Their "childlike" discussions about puberty are cringemaking. But it's not that "adult" really. Brooke Shields' hair is artfully draped over her boobs the whole time and she had body doubles for any actually nude scenes (eg when swimming).
[–]Thatstealthygal 14 insightful - 1 fun14 insightful - 0 fun15 insightful - 0 fun15 insightful - 1 fun - 3 years ago (0 children)
Blue Lagoon is a movie in which Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins, who were both young (but he wasn't AS young), play shipwrecked kids who grow up on an idyllic island, discover sex, have a baby and eventually take a boat out to sea and eat poisoned berries to suicide. It's based on an Edwardian (I think) novel and it's both uncomfortable and hilariously bad.
I think OP means Endless Love, in which Brooke Shields plays a teenager who has sex for the first time while her super liberal mother watches joyfully (but unseen); later the boyfriend gets obsessed with her and it all goes horribly wrong.
There was a DEEP fascination with underage sexuality in the 70s, for certain.
Oh and Pretty Baby is DEEPLY disturbing. It's not an "awareness" film as I remember it - it's about a photographer who becomes fascinated by the women who work in a brothel at the turn of the last century, including the child daughter of one of the working girls whose virginity is sold to the highest bidder.

This is the same kind of thinking that 50s white researchers used to claim black people didn't value education - because they only got points for wanting their kids to go to grad school, when people from disadvantaged communities who've never been to college don't even know that there is such a thing as grad school. Did they want their kids to go to college? Hell yes they did. But the research was weighted towards people of privilege from the start.

Only a full life cycle a bit like the "seven-up" research is going to produce really useful data.

Yeah, the only way to do it respectfully is to make the movie NOT about the transitioning process, which to my mind seems fine. You can have a trans actor playing a trans character who is wandering about the place living a life, not a trans character whose sole character trait is "Is Trans" and whose entire storyline is "Is Trans, Transitions". I've seen indie type shows where trans actors are cast as trans characters - usually not the main character - and it's just incidental that they are trans.

On the terven side, I would be inclined to reshape some of the arguments so they highlight the focus on science.
For instance, rather than saying "intersex is an anomaly, they are stlll either male or female" I would try something like "intersex people are always either male or female, with developmental differences that can affect the way their body expresses its sex. They are not the same as trans people."
"Biological sex is is complicated but all humans, even those with variations, can be grouped into two groups, those whose bodies normally produce small gametes (sperm) and those whose bodies normally produce large gametes (eggs)".
Or whatever the proper science is.
Then you don't get the issues with "binary" being also tied to gender.
