    That’s… interesting…

    “It depends on how I’m dressed.” I give him credit for admitting it!

    “Alexis” was actor “Robert Arquette,” and has always been a kind of drag queen, glam-rock dude even after he announced he was trans. Now, I guess trans has gotten too ordinary for him, so he will do the “gender flux” thing. Public people like “Alexis” actually do a good job of showing how much this whole “gender” thing is BS. He is a dude who likes playing with his appearance, that’s all.

  4. Freyja Says:

    If Alexis agrees to stay out of women’s spaces, I think Alexis is going in the right direction. There should be a recognition of a third sort of identity. I believe the “hijra” identity in India is not easy (I think they face discrimination), but at least their heads are on straight. Here’s a quotation from Wikipedia:

    Indian photographer Dayanita Singh writes about her friendship with a Hijra, Mona Ahmed, and their two different societies’ beliefs about gender: “When I once asked her if she would like to go to Singapore for a sex change operation, she told me, ‘You really do not understand. I am the third sex, not a man trying to be a woman. It is your society’s problem that you only recognize two sexes.'”[62]

    Wikipedia page here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_gender#India

    • I disagree about “third sex.” There is no third sex in mammals – there is only female and male. He is a man BEING a man, period.

    • Toots Says:

      Yes the “third sex” idea found in some cultures is not elevated. It is conservative and regressive. It is a product of a strict gender binary that dictates how a man can be a man. Don’t follow their rules then you are marginalized and labeled “other”.

    • WTF Is This Nonsense? Says:

      I’ve heard of up to eight genders (not counting Facebook), but I haven’t heard of any extra genders that ignore biological reality. Kathoey, Muxe, etc., it’s always something like “Man who plays a womans role”, which of course could vary by culture.

      But no “transwomen are women” stuff. That would be a confusing mess.

      There’s Jayiah Saelua, a fa’afafine who is playing on a men’s soccer team. Says it would be wrong to play on woman’s team.

      I think some hijra say neither, but I read the official status is “eunuch”, even though many are not eunuchs.

    He should talk to some real women. We’ve been gender suspicious for millennia!

  6. Kitty Barber Says:

    What might the ‘next level’ be? If it’s passé to be merely trans, I guess we’ll look to television celebrities to let us know what to do. What to be. Whom to be? ‘It all depends on how I’m dressed.’ When does it just become a joke?

    • bobab Says:

      Kitty asks;
      “What might the ‘next level’ be?”

      Maybe he had this in mind;
      “We were playing music for him and he passed during David Bowie’s Starman. As per his wishes, we cheered at the moment that he transitioned to another dimension.”

      “If it’s passé to be merely trans,”
      Yes, it appears, or is reported that, Arquette was living “as a man” before his death. The Daily Fail says that he died from Aids related complications. In the comment section Jimbosocal from Los Angeles writes;
      “Dying from AIDS complications should be a rarity nowadays. If you maintain a consistent regimen with your meds, eat healthy, and get plenty of rest you can live a long life. There must have been other contributing factors. Hepatitis or cancer caused by estrogen therapy. RIP Alexis.”

      Does anyone know if that’s true, that oestrogen therapy can cause lethal complications, like cancer, in the treatment of Hiv/Aids?


      • GallusMag Says:

        Although M2T have the highest rates of HIV infection in the US, to my knowledge no studies have ever been done on the effect of cross-sex hormones in this population. I’ve never seen transgender AIDS activists like Alexis Arquette or Cecilia Chung lobby for such studies either. Presumably any negative outcomes of hormones on HIV infected males are of no consequence to hormone users.

        Transgender male HIV activists seem to devote their time to demanding that researchers and public health agencies stop referring to them as medically “male”. That is their only priority.

      • GallusMag Says:

        I tweeted a question to San Francisco Department of Public Health representative Cecilia Chung inquiring about such studies:

        However, Mr. Chung has previously blocked me for inquiring about the ongoing dis-inclusion of female transgenders in SF HIV surveys.

      • bobab Says:

        Thanks for the reply Gallus. I’ve asked “Jimbosocal” where they got the information from. I’ll check later to see if there’s a reply.

        “However, Mr. Chung…”
        Haha nice one!
        Whilst checking out “Cecilia” one site said;
        “Chung says. “I’m heartened to see the progress in HIV prevention and treatment but concerned that many inequities that make us vulnerable to HIV still exist today. Next time when you see or hear me, please keep in mind that there are hundreds and thousands of stories from other HIV-positive women waiting to be heard.”

        Mr Chung that is disrespectful and delusional, you are a man. You are not a women.

        Gallus said;
        “Although M2T have the highest rates of HIV infection in the US…”

  7. WTF Is This Nonsense? Says:

    “Alexis” Arquette is the kid in the “She’s A Beauty” video by The Tubes.

    • WTF Is This Nonsense? Says:

      Video might be offensive. Very objectifying. But it seems poetic that this was where “Alexis” got started. He’s the adolescent boy on the ride. Boy can’t acquire, so maybe he tried to become? 😛

      There’s a MERMAID! With heavy makeup.

  8. Zemskull Says:

    I recall when Alexis/Robert Arquette was on VH1’s Surreal Life (~2006). He got enraged at a bar and hurled around lighting and sound equipment, furniture and drinks. Really violent temper on this one.

    • Zemskull Says:

      I can’t find the aforementioned VH1 footage from the nightclub, but here’s Arquette promising to f–k someone up at a gas station because he believed he was being overcharged. A man at the beginning in the video makes reference to the VH1 incident. Arquette realized he was being recorded and went back to his car.

  9. Marm Says:

    Alexis Arquette played “Georgette” in Last Exit To Brooklyn:

  10. amazondream Says:

    He played Caligula in the Xena episode “The God You Know”. Perfect fit for him.

  11. He’s the Fourth Man in PULP FICTION(the one who misses Jules and Vincent with all 6 shots) which also features their ACTUAL sister Rosanna.

  12. Bev Jo Says:

    He seems to be identifying as a woman in the media, and Patricia Arquette recently referred to him as a “transwoman.”

    Anything for attention….

  13. Magdalena Z. Says:

    He’s got the same problem as Bruce Jenner, they both want to be their beautiful female family members. It would be kind of pitiful if it wasn’t so disturbing.
