Today in Gender Awareness: more Jezebel insults

This just got posted, courtesy of, who else, Tracie Egan Morrisey:

According to reports, a Miami installment of Bravo’s Housewives franchise—which has already completed filming—will include Elaine Lancaster. And while actually a man, Elaine’s look (wigs, caked-on makeup, Chanel bags, etc.) isn’t all that different from previous Housewives.

I have already posted extensively on Jezebel’s ingrained racism and have pointed specifically at Tracie as the most frequent offender. So now, we can add transphobia to her list of insults. Any serious media outlet would control her discriminatory language and rhetoric. On Jezebel, instead, it is encouraged in the name of page views. Tracie needs to remind us that, regardless of someone’s gender, this person is a man. Not a legitimate woman deserving of being called a “housewife”. No sir, Tracie Egan Morrisey will out your real gender.

Third wave feminism FTW!

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
