Episode 19 - Chapter 14, "Thunderbolt"
In this two parter, Scottie reads from Chapter 14 "Thunderbolt" - the seminal flash of Grace that shattered her old world for good, forever. The chapter and the Gals addresses the concept of "choice" which as Scottie writes, the world naively says over and over again, that gender identity is just that, a choice, and a bad one at that... Marcy saves the day with her thoughts on Scottie's "choice" which it turns out was to put Marcy's want of and for a husband in front of being true to herself for over 20 years...
Part 1 - "Sophie's, or Stacy'e or Sarah's or Scottie's) choice"
Fresh from an event with a tech giant in Silicon Valley, the Gals find that this week's reading is right in sync with a recurring theme... that being transgender is a choice. Scottie explains this phenomenon and the irony, "being who we are is not the question, but howto be who we are has never been okay in our lives, with anyone.
Part 2 - "Let's get one thing straight"
Marcy clears up one of the biggest misconceptions about the transgender community - that transgender people are selfish. Marcy states that nothing could be further from her experience, Scottie was her husband, for her, for over 20 years, at the expense of her own identity.
