“Transsexuals are the stormtroopers of the future” is a remarkable quote from a recent interview with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, the Psychic TV and Throbbing Gristle icon—and if this quote caught your attention prior to reading this article, that is you should feel PRIDE—because you’re already hip to one of the most interesting podcasts I have heard this year.
Joined by Laura Jane Grace, Against Me! lead singer, The Talkhouse recently uploaded a highly interesting podcast featuring Genesis Breyer P-Orridge in which they discuss various issues knowledgeably and intelligently: From more-or-less “transsexual” problems, such as perennial bathrooms to the transformation of the body in public and – inevitably – Caitlyn Jenner, who recently was good for a good laugh for declaring herself as a spokesperson for transsexuals without knowing any. Coming from different generations with different evils to revolt against, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Laura Jane Grace give an interesting insight into two humans that overcame the limitations a body would imply – the pandrogynous Genesis Breyer P-Orridge overcame the “natural” gender as well as Laura Jane Grace, who transcended her physical appearance to one matching her mental appearance.
You can listen to their one hour long – very entertaining – discussion in the stream embedded in this article. Enjoy.
