I had a female to male er ... fellow in my abnormal psych class. Utterly miserable and confused. good transformation though I didn’t even notice until it was brought up.

"Why are freak-shows news today? I simply don’t get it."

I do.

It's an apparently successful attempt by the media to normalize deviancy, to "define deviancy down."

They want us to think there are lots of sick fvcks like "Rey," and that we shouldn't think there's anything wrong with them.

They haven't found a way, however, to keep the bile from rising in my throat...

If you tell deviant stories long enough and loud enough, eventually people start to accept them.
