What Would You Do?: A transgender woman is insulted by a man at a diner. This is a really great segment they did where a trans woman, played by a real trans woman, is insulted and ridiculed by a man (played by an actor, of course) while she serves him at a diner. You’d be surprised at how many people butted in to defend her.
So much faith in humanity restored.
Fucking great how they supported her.
I may need to watch this show more often.
I am literally crying this is making me so happy that there are people who will protect a perfect stranger especially religious people. I’m so used to hearing about people killing, hurting, misgendering people like me that I forget people like this exist.
THIS IS CARMEN CARRERA SHE WAS ON RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE SHE’S A FIERCE BITCH.
well damn, wish there were people like that where i live! this is great! i really thought that man at the end would agree with Kevin.
I constantly keep looking around me for camera at least once a week because I keep thinking this show is filming me. I am one of the kindest people you will meet. I have found myself in some amazing positions in my life and will NEVER regret a single choice I made.
I’ve called security and scolded a man for being physical with his wife and encouraged her to leave him.
I’ve given a kid a hug and a brand new soda I had just bought when her mom called her a bunch of names like “Piece of shit” “Good for nothing” “Loser” and gave her quarters to go play the arcade while I told my mother about my own past and how words like that never go away, can never be taken back, and will cause her daughter to hate her and never want to come back when she moves out. How her words can scar and effect her confidence and mental health for the rest of her life. When I was leaving the theater I found her and told her “No matter what they say you are beautiful and wonderful. Do not prove them right. Go to school, don’t get pregnant, find a job you love, move out as soon as you can, and find your own happiness. It’s ok not to like them but don’t prove them right. Don’t harm yourself in any way and don’t you ever give up. Be the person they ought to be and be kind to those you know AND those you don’t. Good comes to those who do good ok?” She nodded and I went about my day. I still think about that girl some days and wonder if she is even still alive… it keeps me up some nights.
I’ve told a girl at a bar not to go home with someone because she was vulnerable and spent the whole night swatting greasy ass holes away from the overly drunk girl.
I dug into a guy so hard for screaming at a gay couple on the bus slurs the whole ride just because they were holding hands. The driver pulled over and asked him to leave and he remarked the “faggots” <-I HATE THAT WORD! should be getting off.
I took off one of my favorite coats and gave it to a girl shivering in a tiny dress when it started to down pour on Black Friday while we were waiting in line. She didn’t thank me but I didn’t care, I had an umbrella and she needed the warmth. She just went “Oh wow cool!”
I was late to work because a lost dog came up to me while waiting for my bus to work and I walked the neighborhood until I found its owner.
I was there for a friend who was thinking about going through transition and when he decided not to I still supported him and told him he was loved.
I held hands with a ftm transgender in school and walked him to classes because he was getting bullied. When bullies came to hurt him I threw myself in the way so I got the blows instead. I had bruises on my sides and arms but not one hit landed on him and I did it every day until they left him alone. When they started again I walked him again, even when it made me late for my classes.
That is just a FEW of the things I’ve done in my life
There ARE good people out there! I just wish there were MORE of us!
I like you. You are the hero this world needs. Stay amazing ;D
