LOL: TV Show Tries To Use Autistic Character To Highlight Transphobia, Accidentally Makes Him Uber Based
Please enjoy this hilarious clip of a hit TV show accidentally making an autistic character extremely based:
\u201cIncredible. The autistic doctor, who\u2019s the main character on the show, correctly identifies the male patient as a male while everyone around him is in acute denial of reality.\u201d— Catch Up (@Catch Up) 1682510296
The clip begins with a patient saying, "I'm not a boy. I'm a girl." A female doctor then asks, "You're transgender?" And the patient says yes.
The autistic chad character quickly replies, "No. Quinn has XY chromosomes like Jared and me, not XX like you. Science says he's male. " The look of utter disdain the doctor gives him as he says this is priceless.
Another doctor then joins the fray, explaining, "Quinn has gender dysphoria. Her assigned gender is not the one she identifies with. She's mismatched, Dr. Murphy."
Dr. Murphy, the autistic character, doesn't let up and brings up those pesky little biological facts. But the patient, Quinn, interrupts him and asks how he knows he's supposed to be a boy. He replies, "Your question doesn't make sense."
I love this guy.
"I'm not supposed to be anything. I am a boy. Biologically, that's it."
Dr. Murphy then starts peppering Quinn with questions about why they think they're a girl: "Do you wear dresses? Do you like the color pink? Do you play with dolls? Do you take dance?" His colleague gets increasingly irritated and chastises him for "misgendering" the patient.
It seems like this was supposed to be a commentary on how Dr. Murphy is transphobic, due to his inability to think "outside the box" and get with the times. But the dichotomy actually just shows how insane the opposition's argument is. It really is as simple as, "I am a boy." It really does just come down to biology and chromosomes.
And the show eventually proves this point. It turns out Quinn, the transgender patient who claims to be a girl, has testicular cancer.
