"The University of Connecticut, which received state and federal funding, has a program to teach men who want to be pretend to be women how to talk like girls.."
They have a CLINIC. At a UNIVERSITY for this hooey.
This is the state of American "higher eduction". I guess by "higher" they just mean "higher" vocal, estrogen-laden tones?
"The majority of the transgender clients at the clinic are transitioning to female. Hormone therapy will naturally cause a lowering in the voice of someone transitioning to male, Chase said. Many "F to Ms," as they are sometimes called, need to learn the other subtleties."
(Doesn't that sound mildly strange "M to Fs"? Or is it just me?!?!)
"The clinic also has served some people who are not transgender, such as men who wish to sound less effeminate - a topic explored in the new documentary "Do I Sound Gay?" And some clients, including people who are only considering a change in gender, want a voice that is more neutral, Chase said."
(Note to potential views of "Do I Sound Gay" movie: if you have to ask if you sound gay, then you do. You don't need the documentary. You're welcome.)
"Literature [Ed. Note: OH MY F&CKING GAWD THEY ARE CALLING THIS DRECK LITERATURE] in the field dates back 50 years, but until the past 20 years only a handful of people were doing voice work with transgender people, and the work is still in its infancy, Chase said."
And don't think this is some kind of silly, first-world indulgence of mental illness or anything.
This is a matter of LIFE AND DEATH.
For real, and not for joking!
""For me, passing is important," she said. "But, in some cases it's a matter of survival. There are some places where you do not want to be read as being anything other than female. It's dangerous."
What the hell? Where is a dangerous place, where it is a matter of survival to be "read" as "anything other than female"? The Kardashian's bathroom now that Bruce is out of the house? A Tampax sale at Costco?
This is totally nuts. These are the new Chia pets of the left. A lot of lives are going to be destroyed before the left moves onto its next pet project.
