Older/Experienced trans women, here’s a fun prank you can pull on a younger tall girl who’s just coming out:
The Set-Up: Pick someone who seems really shy and nervous. It’ll work especially well if a lot of her awkwardness comes from being intimidated or confused by other trans women, maybe even one that might say things like, “I dunno, I don’t really like most other trans women,” to impress her trans dude friends (which it does, because people love a self-loathing trans woman like a Cinnabon.) Here’s the tricky part, try to be sure she might kinda look up to you or at least know you as a “figure in the community.” Like, the prank works best if she REALLY knows you, but you’ve never really interacted before.
The Punchline: OOOHHH! This is so good. She is NOT gonna see it coming. I’ve got the hiccups from laughing so hard.
Okay, so what you do is walk right up to her, look her in the eye, and just start being super-duper, over the top nice to her for no apparent reason whatsoever. Talk to her for, like, an hour about whatever she wants and tell her she’s cool and funny. Use phrases like “Whoa! That rules!” or “Fuck, yeah, that’s a bummer. I know what you mean.” Have super earnest, “we’re just two people talking, and if you want a little wisdom, I’ve probably got some squirreled away somewhere, but we also don’t have to bother with that,” conversations. Tell her dirty jokes and drink beer with her (or do the things in your culture/geography/experience that might be equivalently bond forming fun)
Hang with her hard and decide that you’re friends and then (this really is what brings the whole prank together!) do the same thing over and over every time you see her. Tell her she’s the best and that she’s cool and invite her to parties and try to hang out with her, cook her dinner, watch movies with her, go to museums and parks and shit and never explain to her why you’re treating her so special. SHE’LL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT’S GOING ON! hahahahahaha!
(warning: the prank will totally not work if she ever says she doesn’t want to be your friend or if she’s too freaked out. Immediately abort prank if it becomes clear that she doesn’t want to play, but be open to her initiating the game in the future.)
haha this looks like a fun prank
