“Katie Couric’s Gaffe”: otherwise known as When Female and Male Trans Collide
January 16, 2014
This is too damn funny. CNN ran an article today titled “Katie Couric’s Gaffe: What not to say to trans people” on the recent topic of how no one is ever supposed to mention that guys like Laverne Cox and Carmen Cerrera, while they may claim to be female, actually have dicks and balls. Hahaha! What is so funny about that? “Gaffe”, (alternately spelled “Gaff”) is the term for the method transgender males use to disguise their dick. Hahaha! Confusing!
A Gaffe/Gaff is whatever device a transgender dude uses to strap down his dick, from the poor man’s duct tape to a specialized “genital hiding undergarment” as marketed on a trillion male transgender websites.
“Method 1. Lying down, pull the gaff up to your upper thighs. The wide part should be facing the front and the thinner part is in the back. Put your testicles up into your abdominal cavoty. You can do this by simply holding each testicle and gently pushing until you find the opening for the cavity. Once you have both testicles up, hold them there in front (you will be able to feel them protruding around your public hair) and tuck your penis between your legs and pull your gaff up. You should now have a flat appearance in front. If you are wearing tight fitting clothes- this method is best. If you obtain an erection using the method, it will cause pain so be careful.
Method 2. When you are not wearing tight fitting clothing and want a somewhat smoother appearance in your genital area, simply put on the gaff and push your penis down flat-but you do not have to put your testicles into the abdominal cavity.
How could a transgender author make such a humorous, unintentionally subversive choice of title on an opinion piece AGAINST discussing men hiding their dicks? Easy. The author is a female trans named T. Cooper who probably has encyclopedic knowledge in the practice of breast binding but lacks basic knowledge of male trans culture and practice, and gay male drag culture which originated the term. The transgender community is notoriously segregated by sex and sexual orientation.
I guess this “gaffe” was a “teaching moment” that news outlet CNN decided was too hot to handle. CNN scrubbed the headline a few hours later.
