Transgender humor
« on: June 13, 2019, 12:18:49 am »
A friend alerted me that I have zero sense of humor about being trans. Can anyone help us out, perhaps with a joke or two?

I could post a photo of myself. I grin sardonically every time I see myself in the mirror. No maybe that won't help the rest of you laugh...

When I was in Vancouver, we saw a road called the Trans Canada Expressway and I said “what, was it assigned USA at birth?”

How many trans ppl does it take to change a lightbulb?
Just 1, but people will always ask you if your lightbulbs had, you know, “The Change”

 My wife & I & a couple of other families went camping out bush last weekend. We all had a hearty sing along around the campfire to this.

That's cool.  At the very beginning of my transition before anyone knew anything,  I was in a fantasy football league and named my team the Lumberjacks because of this song. My brother got the Monty Python reference but no reason to link it to me being trans yet.

Got a chuckle out of a sign at my oil change place that they once had;
"Are you guilty of <transgender person> neglect"?

When the Vatican issued that snotty letter the other day, I got a chuckle when I realized that a sexless little old man in a white dress was calling me a weirdo.

"But all you get to do is choose. Your anxieties, your fears, your courage, your happiness, your rage: go ahead and feel them all you want. They don’t matter. What matters is what you choose.
“I can promise you a long and fascinating road. I’ll give you tools along the way. I’ll be with you every step.

One to make the change, and everyone else to tell them to wait a little longer, “just to be sure.”

Sure we could come up with lots of variations on the  light bulb joke.

I'll start;

Just one, but you need letters from two licensed electricians before you can

I sing that one around the house sometimes haha. And the one about Camelot from Holy Grail. Because I... live right where Camelot is supposed to be. It is a silly place.

Trivia time. The girl in the lumberjack skit, I believe, later starred in Faulty Towers with John Cleese. I  believe that is "Polly." If you never saw Faulty Towers, check it out, it lasted one season, but it was  really funny.

Yes, Connie Booth, who was Mrs Cleese the time.  Technically, there were two seasons but only 12 episodes, so it probably seemed like one season if broadcast in the US at a later date.
