Yet for all the rage I can honestly say that I never felt like any of those comments applied to me. I just wanted to say Calpernia is beautiful when angry. ginger2u Log in to Reply calperniaaddams on February 29, 2008 at 12:17 am Ha ha, I had a lot of fun making this one. I always wish I had done it a little differently once it’s all done, but things seem to come out better if I just improvise like this, so here it is. I do honestly get bitter about some of these questions, but I hope the humor shows that I’m not totally unsympathetic. =) Log in to Reply Mila Pavlin on March 3, 2008 at 11:30 am This video is GOLD. All too true, and all too real. We had a blast watching it, and would recommend it to all of our friends. Hugs Mila Log in to Reply calperniaaddams on March 3, 2008 at 12:30 pm Thank you, Mila! It was lots of fun to just say exactly what I felt, ha ha. Of course, I know plenty of people come to us with questions out of a genuine desire to know us better, but I just want to maybe inspire them to think twice and ask questions in a way that won’t be disrespectful or hurtful. Log in to Reply Mila Pavlin on March 3, 2008 at 12:49 pm It is nice to get to say something back. My personal (un)favorite rude question (which I have been asked at least twice) is “so do you still have your factory equipment?” Which is usually asked immediately after a guy finds out I am trans, and quickly followed by questions about sex that no man would ask a natal-woman they just met. Funny that earlier in the day before we knew about the video, Jayna and I had been talking about doing the same kind of thing. We talked about it on the car ride home after looking at video cameras. I found you video waiting when we got home lol. Hugs Mila Log in to Reply anjie on March 3, 2008 at 9:51 pm This video is great! I’d dare say it should be shown in schools with videos about where babies come from and Martin Luther King. While it is specifically about transgender, it’s a lesson in respecting and loving all people. And of course just plain thinking before you speak. And its true, I don’t consider myself a dumbass, just not well versed in the ways of transgender, but putting those seemingly harmless questions in perspective was very helpful. Thanks for opening my eyes! Log in to Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
