"Instead the media tends to not notice-or to outright ignore-trans men because they are unable to sensationalize them the way they do trans women without bringing masculinity itself into question. (Julia Serano The Whipping Girl 46.3)"

Quick! help me sensationalize the trans male experience[s]!

First shot [of course] "before" photos. the more feminine the better am i right?
[of course i'm right]
over the photos there could be a V/O either the typical "man trapped in woman's body" or ooh, "growing up i was always a tomboy, just one of the guys" [those trans males who never really had any thoughts on gender until their late teens/early twenties? oh they don't exist.]

then daily routine time! while our sisters have the long scenes of them putting on make-up/hosiery/whatever, we can have...breast binding scenes? picking cornstarch out of our pubes [your mileage may vary on this one]? wiping cornstarch on our pants [oops]?
Oh i know! binding [with bandages! of course. sports bras/tanktops don't add the same je nais se qua.] and just for fun, packing. [with one of the big soft ones-for the cornstarch scene] and as it's "inserted" cornstarch flutters down to floor onto a "before" photo until it's completely obscured. {cue: door shuts]
^that is Oscar-bait right there [bonus points if the lead's played by a cis*male.]

And we have to have like an hour or something devoted to showing us working out. all the time. and downing protein shakes like they were water. yesss. and then the lead flexes. [and sneaks into a locker room. for some reason. drama?]
[of course we only show muscular he-men. the femme trans guys don't exist.]

and, if we're going the indie movie route, we can have a discussion on pissing standing up. as you always do. [STP vs. just going in a stall vs. women's bathroom! it would be epic.]

instead of star wipes we can just have drawn penises be a scene changer. y'know for...the Freudian viewpoint.

hmmm, what else? oh! summertime! full of layers. lots of layers. and sweat. personal experience? no why what makes you think that?
