Zoey Tur the helicopter reporter who made a name for herself during the LA riots and later transitioning is again making a name for herself. Tur appeared on the Dr. Drew show as its transgender reporter this week. Tur gave her opinion about the Planet Fitness event and Carlotta Sklodowska, who self-identified as transgender.
Dr. Drew asks Tur her opinion and she responds….
“At the very center of this controversy is the transgender person rolling her eyes to the ceiling she continues “the problem here is your definition of transgender.. is a transvestite, a cross-dresser, a male that has a sexual fetish dressing as a female”
Dr. Drew interrupts Tur asking “How do we know that?”
Tur answers “I did some research I’m very careful about these sorts of things and I looked at social media and I also talked to the receptionist at Planet Fitness so you’re dealing with a cross dresser.” Tur goes son to explain she has many friend that are cross dressers. “It’s not a transsexual its a male who gets off on wearing woman’s clothing.”
Good cop bad cop.
Dr. drew asks Tur “Maybe this person was sincerely moving in that direction. There’s still a cross-dressing stage and living as a woman and actually moving into the transgender category.”
Tur answers “No. That’s not the case. This person is a cross-dresser who gets a sexual high from, dressing as a female.”
Dr, Drew got what he wanted from Tur saying “We have to go on break but wouldn’t that be a criminal thing going into the woman’s locker room to get high off to get it’s kicks out of dressing like a woman and getting off like that?”
The social media that Tur probably saw is a Tumblr post in which screen grabs from Carlotta Sklodowska facebook. It appears from those ill-advised posts that Sklodowska enjoys the alternative sexual lifestyle and is sexually submissive.
Sklodowska made no mention of her gender expression or identity in those posts.
This isn’t the first time Tur has defined another person without actually knowing them first hand. She did the same thing to Bruce Jenner on TMZ.
Zoey Tur could have appeared on this Fox news show as many of her views would have been welcomed. Except that they would have been all too busy invalidating her for being a fetishist.
The transgender umbrella isn’t an easy concept for some trans people to accept. The fact is though, the more accepting we are of each other the more accepted we will be by society in general.
