Sophia’s female anatomy lesson benefits everyone
This was my favourite scene because even 5 years ago there would have been no way this stuff could have been on a TV show. A trans woman in a position of power? Actual information about female anatomy? Representation of the issue that some women (and men) are never taught about basic female anatomy? Having a trans woman understand this because she ‘designed her own’? And thus pointing out the difference between sex and gender in one scene? While arguing that biology doesn’t make you a woman because many women don’t even understand the biology and continue to be women? And that some do understand and also continue to be women? I hope they teach this scene in film and media and television classes in years to come like ‘this was the turning point of our society and everything got better from here.’
I definitely learned more about my body from my ex and the Internet than from my parents.
