Her Name Is Helena
Kale and Rod are joined by Helena, a young woman who has gone through a harrowing personal journey. Her testimony takes us into the world of Tumblr and the alternate reality of fandom, social justice ideology, and transgenderism. At 15 she begins the process of becoming a trans person online and decides to become trans in “meat space,” fighting with her parents and making the decision through “informed consent” to begin a regimen of testosterone. After a drawn out spiral she acknowledges that she’s made a terrible mistake and begins the process of making sense out of what happened. She’s a witness and a prophet.
