M. suggested that one of the programs for next semester be about the concept of "straight-acting." D.S., who is pretty far from straight-acting, tried to make the suggestion "gender performance." M. said "straight-acting" again, so D. added that in parentheses. I'll probably write M. about my opinions of that. Essentially, I think it's just natural for some people to act in a way that's different from what is expected of a person of their purported gender. Some of it is performance, but I believe a lot of it is just people being themselves. Even though I feel pretty androgynous mentally, my mannerisms are femme mannerisms. (Editing this...) Or like those of a man who's really not straight-acting. I don't seem to startle people who are expecting whatever sort of performance from a female-bodied person. I think the way I gesture with my hands is noticeable enough.
Soap opera (http://rtl-now.rtl.de/alles_was_zaehlt.php) was good today. The commenters on the Eskimo Kiss Project version (http://awz.parakaproductions.com) complained about a couple of fadeouts which were ill-timed in their opinions. There was the scene where Deniz was lying on his stomach, Roman straddled Deniz, and Deniz obligingly lifted his hips so Roman could undo his belt buckle. The scene faded out shortly after showing Roman kissing Deniz' back. I figured the viewer could just use his or her imagination after that. In my imagination, Deniz ended up with bite marks on his shoulders. Then Roman dressed up as a sexy Santa, with a costume showing his whole chest. One of the commenters wrote "SANTA-BUNNY!" as Roman's nickname is Bunny.
