TV’s Intersectional, Girly Femboys

“Let me be clear. When I allude to the women of TV, I include those with the Y Chromosome.”—TV Tarts: Cringe Factor Ad Infinitum, Part 2.

Indeed, as ghastly as the TV tarts are (read about them here), TV’s “girly boys” give them a run for their money.

Think Gabriel Debenedetti of Politico or Chuck Todd of MSNBC’s MTP Daily, of course.

Arms and hands windmilling like any network woman, Chuck’s every sentence is prefaced with that most feminine of affectations, “I feel like.”

Mr. Todd’s pouty exclamations are complemented by wild gesticulating and a habit of swaying back-and-forward energetically in his little swivel chair.

Todd is easily able to take up an entire segment riffing about the audacity of not liking John McCain.

“So many of the Trump base think of McCain as a traitor,” Chuck pondered. “Can you believe it?” The point being that it is not the attack on a dead man that our “girly boy” condemns, but a difference of opinion about John McCain.

Today, little Chuck issued an apology to a self-styled identity group: Tourette’s syndrome sufferers.

That makes Chuck a PC perfect little femboy.
