Taxpayer money being used to teach "transgendered" men to talk like girls|
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 (and vice-versa, of course--no discrimination there!).
You would think this would be something easily accomplished without classes, but I guess like thespians, they want to learn from professionals!
Sylvia Wojcik was making reservations for a beach getaway in Maine when the receptionist on the other end of the line called her "ma'am." Nothing could have delighted her more.
Wojcik, 66, is transitioning from male to female. For her, that proof that she sounded like a woman was an important moment.
Wojcik has undergone several years of voice therapy, the past 18 months at the University of Connecticut's Speech and Hearing Clinic, one of a growing number of clinics with programs to teach transgender people how to sound more like the sex they identify with.
They learn not only how to change the pitch of their voice, but also its resonance (males speak more from chest, women from the head) and delivery (men tend to be more staccato, women more fluid).
It involves a lot of voice exercises - humming to find an ideal pitch, naming five words that start with the letter "T."
Five words that start with T? That sounds like the Damon Wayans "Men on Films" gay parody skit from "In Living Color!"
Roberts, a freelance copywriter, has been attending sessions since February. She expects to participate for at least another semester.
As a man, Roberts was a radio personality, voiceover artist and actor. She is now returning to the stage as an actress and doesn't want her voice to impede her winning roles.
A voice actor who will never be seen, who can still easily use a man's voice in his work, still wants his voice changed so he sounds like a girl? No irony there!
It's ridiculous that taxpayer supported foundations are being used to perpetuate people's delusions that they can change gender. It's especially Onion-like reporting given that men can easily raise their voices and women can lower them. Gay men have been doing this for years, after all. The kind of training they are looking for is at the level of spies trying to make their foreign accents sound believable, which makes the entire endeavour even more preposterous.
However, there is one activity of the clinic I fully support:
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?"
Tell us what you think on Facebook.

Trump's plan B: work with Dems to "improve" Obamacare
President Trump cut himself a big slice of humble pie as he frantically called reporters from The New York Times and the Washington Post and pleaded with them to spin his lack of success in passing "Trumpcare" as something other than a personal failure for his presidency.
Trump says Obamacare here to stay if "Obamacare-lite" voted down
I've become convinced that President Trump is a political hermaphrodite. The top half is Republican--pushing for lower taxes, border security, and cuts to counterproductive regulations. But if the top half of President Trump is Republican, the bottom half is Hillary Clinton, a side of the President which wants to keep amnesty in place for millions of "Dreamers", wants to spend a trillion dollars on "infrastructure" like Obama, and now is fighting tooth and nail to preserve the worst parts of Obamacare.
Why is Sears dying?
Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why?
Men in Third World calling phone numbers at random in search of love (sex)
Technology has certainly changed the Third World. In countries like India and Morocco where cellphones are widely available for the first time, men are dialing random phone numbers and, when they hear a woman's voice at the other end, they immediately engage in sexy talk to try and get them interested.
Trump orders raises for overpaid federal bureaucrats
President Trump ordered all federal workers to get an almost 2% raise. Two percent, what's the big deal? Well, it's a big deal because federal salaries and benefits are already grossly inflated.
Trump threatens Republicans who vote against "Obamacare-lite"
President Trump, who promised to totally repeal Obamacare, is threatening Republicans with political retribution if they do not support the House bill which would leave the worst elements of Obamacare intact.
Family of Mexican drug dealer who overdosed get $1 million from US taxpayers
The family of a Mexican drug mule who tried to smuggle narcotics across the border received 1 million dollars in a settlement of a lawsuit over the incident.
Trump Admin. promises to do nothing about the national debt
One of the most popular things to do in Washington D.C. is to come up with a "plan" to eliminate the deficit in ten years. For some reason politicians always come up with a ten year plan. I think they pick ten years out so it is short enough to take somewhat seriously, but long enough for a politician to serve in Washington and then to leave before the ten years are up. In any event, people forget about the ten year plans relatively quickly so in two or four years a "new" 10 year plan to eliminate deficit can be created, even before the old one has "come to fruition".
Joni Ernst ran against Obamacare, but now loves it more than her motorcycle
Joni Ernst's 2014 campaign for US Senate in Iowa was very much like the marketing campaign that Marvel comics puts into motion for its female superhero movies.
Federal court security intentionally targets Muslims and should be withdrawn
When you try to go into a federal courthouse, chances are you have to go through a metal detector and have your possessions examined by security. What is that all about? It's actually has nothing at all to do with security, and everything to do with deterring Muslims from seeking justice!
Trump's budget is bold, brave, and ultimately pointless
There is quite a lot to like about President Trump's first budget. Let me give a few examples:
Women marines outraged soldiers watched their sex videos
What do you do if you're a woman, in the Marines, and you make a sex video, and your fellow marines see it? Claim you're being sexually harassed, of course!
Trump was wrong to try to appease courts on entry ban
Is anyone really surprised that an Obama appointed federal judge imposed an injunction on President Trump's second attempt at a modified travel ban?
Liberal professor beaten by leftist students blames Trump
What do you do when you're a liberal professor at liberal university and you get beaten up by left wing students?
Deaf, Mute, Dumb, Illegal Alien evades murder charges
What do you do when you have convincing evidence that an illegal alien has murdered someone, but because he is deaf, mute, and dumb, you can't communicate with him?
Can America function with less than 33 assistant secretary of states?
The New York Times is again making hay of the fact that President Trump has not nominated any assistant secretary of states, and Trump has been giving mixed signals on whether he thinks they are even necessary.
Are women with two last names modern, or mean?
Women with two last names, their maiden name and the name of their husbands (sometimes connected with the dreaded hyphen), used to be almost exclusively strident feminists who felt they were losing their identity by taking their husband's last name while discarding their own. Hillary Clinton always became Hillary "Rodham" Clinton after she won an election; and Debbie "Wasserman" Schultz always used both names even as people parodied her as Debbie "Was a Man" Schultz. But women other than hardcore feminists seem to be using two names as well.
Liberals say King Kong=black people
With a new King Kong movie coming out, a whole segment on NPR was devoted to proving that the fictional King Kong monster is actually a commentary on black people. The show interviewed Robin Means Coleman, a professor of Afroamerican studies at the University of Michigan who specializes in studying King Kong.
Liberals fantasize about being "slapped in the face" by Donald Trump
I was reading an article about possible cuts to HUD, the department of Housing and Urban Development, and a catchy phrase caught my eye:
President Trump owes Mark Levin a debt of gratitude
Just a week ago, President Trump was embattled. Democrats were lining up to go before cameras to ask "Did [Trump associate x] meet with the Russians? When? What did they say? We need a full investigation!"
Trump was clearly on the defensive.
What kind of wife lets her husband go to cross-dressing school?
NPR had a segment about a man who went to a cross-dressing "school" to learn how to act and dress like a girl. But the truly astounding part of the story was that the wife approved! (Source: the audio on this webpage, not the text).
Mexico upset that returning illegals are speaking English
Isn't it irritating when foreigners come into a country in large numbers and refuse to speak the native language? It is irritating to Mexicans, who find that some deported illegals who return home are speaking in English!
Nutty Defense Secretary wants Islamists, Obama leftovers in senior posts
Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis wants to fill the most senior posts at the Defense Department with people sympathetic to Islamists, or almost as bad, people sympathetic to Barack Obama.
Mark Levin takes credit for stopping Trump "Amnesty Announcement"
At the opening of his show yesterday, conservative talk show host Mark Levin took credit for preventing President Trump from offering amnesty for "Dreamer" illegal aliens. Levin said that right before Trump's address to Congress, Trump met with media executives and told them he was willing to give amnesty for children of illegal aliens, the so-called "Dreamers". Levin said that Trump was rewriting his speech until right before he gave it, and Levin believed Trump planned to offer this amnesty in that speech.
The book everyone wants Michelle Obama to write
I just heard the news that Barack and Michelle Obama got a $60 million dollar deal to each write a book. I imagine Barack's book will be worth more, but publishers probably paid millions for Michelle's book too.
