Like the number of feminists needed to screw in a light bulb, gender-based assumptions are NOT FUNNY!
Gender-based sound effects prove to be the exception in Bleep Blap Bloop, a very funny short film featuring real people attempting to impersonate various machines, primarily vehicles and weapons of the sort one rarely encounters in every day use. They’re not the most diverse bunch with regard to age or ethnicity, but as far as white people in their 20’s go, Bleep Blap Bloop’s findings are pretty airtight. The Y chromosomes are the clear winners.
“Couldn’t you have done, like, a duck?” one of the female contestants asks as the credits roll.
What about you? Is this a case where you fit the mold? Please share your most triumphal (or least humilating) sound effect below. Transpeople heartily encouraged to expand the conversation!
