  • Mood:
Went to dim sum with Katherine yesterday, and then today at Lisa's as usual. We're getting toward the Buffy season 6 episode "Seeing Red," and I'm not looking forward to it. Ugh. That'll be next week.

Lisa and I talked a lot about someone she knows who is trans ... and who is very intolerant of trans people who can't pass as easily as she can. She has been very blatantly rude to one of Lisa's friends because of this (refusing to be in the same room with her). I think it's like the mixed race person who doesn't want to spend time with black people because of what it might make people think about them. I was getting pretty pissed off when Lisa was telling me about this, and I was almost getting a bit pissed off at Lisa for not finding it more objectionable. Lisa was all, "Oh, I think it's kind of sad that she feels this way," and I was like, "Fuck her. She needs to grow up." Not a very compassionate way to look at it, I suppose, but it makes me mad. Well, it's unlikely that I will ever encounter this person, so my anger serves no purpose.

Breathe in, breathe out.
