Contortions: Exhibit A

October 27, 2009

A grown ass man dressed like a caricature of a woman maced a little boy on a subway. That same grown ass man talked shit about how fat a woman and her boys were, although he is quite fat himself. Instead of walking completely away from the uncivil children (who may or may not have been initially provoked), that grown ass man was determined to stay within earshot to keep the argument going. Then when he could escape out an open door, he sprayed mace on the boy. The man should be charge with assault. A grown ass man has no business attacking a child, including a loudmouth male child. Men always resort to violence, –always.

In typical acrobat fashion, people have ignored the male privilege the grown ass man invoked when he insulted the woman by calling her fat, ugly, and mental (all tropes used against females by males) and utilized his physical presence (taller and probably stronger, at times he menacingly towered over them) to intimidate. In justifying the immature and illegal activity of the man in drag, people have completely glossed over how threatened a grown ass man (dressed in drag or not) can be to an unprotected woman, particularly a woman who society does not normally listen to, and instead, focused on how the immature man was oppressed (AS IF!) by a poor just as frustrated as everyone else family. Any other time people will talk about how it is never acceptable to assault a child. NEVER!

There should be charges filed against this asshole. Of course, the police will probably not care what happens to a poor (most likely) fat black woman and/or her poor fat black children.

The contortions have got to hurt.

    Well at least someone sung Happy Birthday to his violent ass.

    Nah, they’re all limber yoga fiends. Stretch those lies! Twist into downward dog!

    He sure jumped into the “I’m a better woman than you” spiel pretty quick, didn’t he? Trannies are never satisfied with just being any “woman” – they’ve always got to assert their position at the top of the heap.

    And I have to say it is beyond sad that was made into something for people to laugh at.

    Daisy, what does that have to do with that man calling the woman a “fat bitch”??? I mean, believe me, you’ll get no disagreement from me about the threat little boys can pose to adult women – I stand under 5 feet tall myself. But, I mean, this man has got to be 6’3″ or something. He’s towering over this family, calling the woman a “fat bitch,” going on about how he could satisfy the woman’s boyfriend/husband, swinging his weave in their faces. I don’t give a shit what those boys said to him. If he was really all that threatened by it, he could have gone to the other end of the train car and left them alone.

    Let’s not appropriate the danger female people actually do face from males of all ages to excuse this hulking beast of a man’s decision to mace an entire train car full of people ON HIS WAY OFF THE TRAIN – meaning he was no longer in any of the danger he could claim (and only implausibly, at that) to have felt in the first place. He wasn’t scared. He was angry because that family wouldn’t call him a woman. I guarantee you that’s what set the whole thing off. The boys/woman commented on his being a man and he lost his shit.

    I don’t think I assume too much when I say that if a heteronormative appearing male had said something to this male cross-dresser, the cross-dresser would have defused the situation by moving away or keeping his mouth shut. It is telling that he felt inclined to go all out and stand his ground when it came to a woman and her children. Fat, ugly, mental, “cannot satisfy her man like he could” was all thrown at her. And it is not evident who started this. Even assuming the boys and woman started it means nothing to me. He is still a grown ass man with male privilege on his side. And he did indeed utilize that privilege. He wanted to take his frustrations out on somebody, and in oppressor fashion, he chose a marginalized person to do just that.
