Today’s post is somewhat of a part 2 to yesterday’s writing but, like a handful of movie sequels, this one can stand on its own, too. I’ll say this though, the two posts are similar, especially considering the theories surrounding a former First Lady. So if you want to, check out Is Michelle Obama a Biological Man? then come back to keep reading.
I started off yesterday with the word, “absurd.” I decided that was one of the most important takeaways because there isn’t a whole lot of evidence to support the claim that Michelle Obama was once a guy named Michael Robinson. It’s a pretty outlandish idea but there are people who believe it, or at least think it’s possible. The way crazy things have unfolded in the last few years might soften the reception if it were to ever come out as being true.
But there IS something a little peculiar out there and I’d love to know your take on it. As I was researching, I came across a magazine dedicated to showing off fashion and style among the trans community. It’s called “Candy Magazine” and it’s been around for over a decade. Side bar to promote another of my posts: I’m sure they/them at Candy Magazine loved this confusing Hershey’s commercial.
Back to the magazine… one particular set of covers in 2012 featured a trans-woman being sworn in as President.
The publisher of the magazine, Luis Venegas, had this to say about the photo session, which would probably not go over so well if he said it in 2023:
It’s been 11 years since those covers went public and, now more than ever, a trans-person being elected to the top political office doesn’t seem so far-fetched. Lately, some politicians get picked and/or elected based on their gender, race, or sexual preference despite their (lack of?) qualifications. Was that cover a foreshadowing of things to come? Time will tell.
Until then, leave your comments below with thoughts and opinions of what’s going on in society socially, politically, and whatever else you want to share.
See you tomorrow!
