"Kinks Shirt" by Matt Nathanson
What I really appreciate about this video is that the song makes no mention of the woman’s trans* status; they could have easily done something different with this video, and had Matt’s love interest be cis.
But no, she’s trans*, and most importantly, Character!Matt doesn’t care. They meet, they flirt, they sleep together, they talk over breakfast and clearly have a connection. That’s what matters, not the fact that this woman wasn’t born with a vagina.
THIS IS A BIG DEAL YOU GUYS
God, I didn’t think I needed more reasons to love Matt Nathanson but apparently now I have some.
okay wow this is super cute
i don’t think i’ve ever in my life seen any form of media where there is a trans woman as a love interest who isn’t treated like a freak, isn’t made into a weird fetish object, AND LIVES THROUGH THE ENTIRE THING
and suddenly here it is
i mean its not totally perfect in every way (the “unveiling” of her trans status to the viewers made me cringe a little) but the fact that she’s trans, he knows she’s trans, and it has no bearing on whether he’s into her is just
its fucking nice to see something positive for once
PLUS THE AUDIENCE JUST APPLAUDS AND THERE’S NO GROSS REACTION SHOTS OF PEOPLE GASPING AND I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS
Awww this is so freakin cute aaahh
THIS IS THE BEST
IT:S important that they made it blatantly obvious, and i thought the reason was obvious enough, but it’s also taking the offensive (sports term), by first offering this image of just another romance song and video. Then it forces you to accept that cute couple you saw and approved of, is normal, and alright.
