One thought on “The Fisher King, A Cancer Comedy, and Blue Steel

  1. Hey Thirty Twenty Ten! In this week’s episode Chris mused if any good has ever come from Jerry Springer. Well, I know as a kid in the 90s I’d spend my summer vacations flipping through channels to find anything worth watching between daytime TV and Nick Jr. This means I’d stumble upon Jerry Springer a fair amount. I remember catching an episode about people who had undergone a “sex change operation” and my mind was blown. I’m pretty certain the subject of being trans in the show was played as a complete freak show, but I was captivated. Here were other people who were forced to grow up as a gender they didn’t jive with and decided to do something about it. From that point on I had a life long dream. Fast forward to last year when I at age 34 was finally able to start HRT (hormone replacement therapy) and this past June I finally had top surgery.
    So, in an extremely roundabout way, thanks Jerry Springer. Your show was total schlock, but you showed trans people to a kid who didn’t know life outside of north Texas, and that’s gotta count for something, right?

    PS: Happy 10th anniversary, Laser Time!
