  • Could be, should be influential. Ryan Murphy is one hell of a story teller and he simply MUST get a chance to tell this amazing story on TV !

    I am a post-op transsexual myself and I am very pleased that transsexualism is becoming part of TV more these days. I saw the first episode and must say that it would definitely be one of my favourite TV shows. I absolutely loved Nip Tuck and I think Ryan Murphy is one hell of a story teller. There are so many unpleasant things I had to face before and during my transition such as physical violence on several occasions by adults, verbal abuse, discrimination at my workplace and a complete lack of understanding from my parents, that I really wish wouldn't have happened to me and which maybe wouldn't have happened if people were just more informed and aware of transsexualism as one of many normal human conditions. However, I have also made the experience, that many people are just insecure and misinformed about transsexualism and that they just assume the position of their social circles, until someone comes along and proves to them that transsexuals are also just people. I particularly didn't like that the show depicts conservatives generally as (violent) jerks that don't give a damn about the person inside a body. That's simply not true. I am friends with conservatives who are far friendlier towards me than some of those hypocritical leftists who treat me with total disrespect just because of my (conservative) views on islam and maybe because I have decided at some point not to be a victim anymore.



    sorry for this personal comment, but I think it might help shed some light on possible reasons why the show was finally not produced. maybe ryan murphy can find it in his heart to take a more objective stance and just let the facts speak for themselves so the show can be attractive to a larger audience ? that (and Fox being reasonable) would be really cool !moreless
