Transdom (trans random) Items

Brazilian transsexual model Lea T appears on the December cover of the her native country's edition of Elle.

Did I miss something? Is Pippa Middleton trans? I do not understand the media's fascination with this plain looking woman. I figure that there must be a catch; maybe she is a transwoman, which would explain all the attention she gets, as well as her mustache. (Sorry about that --- I was just expressing my catty side.)

Congressman Barney Frank announced that he is not running for re-election and that has generated conflicting blogs in the trans community. Rebecca Juro thanks the congressman, while Valerie Keefe puts him down.

I noticed this past week that ABC began advertising its new situation comedy, Work It, which debuts in January. The show is about "two unrepentant guy's guys who, unable to find work, dress as women to get jobs." The snippets of the show that appear in the ads are as bad as you can imagine.

On a related note, Katina Solomon at informed me about an article on their website, 10 Worst Movies Involving Men Dressed As Women.

Finally, Meg of Call Me Meg fame, was the first person to mention that she noticed the revised blog header (above). Actually, Meg's virtual kick to my dupa moved me to make the revision. Thanks, Girlfriend!


  1. I'm still amazed ABC is going to put Work It on the air. Usually, a preview or commercial will feature the best parts of a new show. If what we've seen is the best... I give it 2 episodes, tops.

    Have to disagree about Pippa. I think she's pretty cute.

    Excellent use of the word "dupa" - and Meg is the best.

  2. Thanks for the shout-out, Stana! And thank YOU Linda! I wish I had a better post today, since my readership will be UP!

    And I'm still not sure how I feel about comic drag.

  3. "Work It" - Auuugh. I can't even imagine how bad this is gonna be - and I'll never know, because it won't ever end up on my DVR.
    Thankfully, no-one I know has yet to sugest that I 'might like it'. They know me better than I thought..

    I have to assume they've already made a half-season of it, so I think the world is in for 8 episodes. Auuugh.
