Open Letter to Ivanka Trump:

Dear @ivankatrump, Since Milo recently resigned from his position as gay cover boy of the far right, I want to suggest myself as the new second token of the nation. You remember: a token is the exception that affirms the political rule – "women suffer from the double burden of domestic labor and career – but hey! German minister of defense Ursula von der Leyen married a noble, has seven children and a political career! So who are you!?" Or you, Ivanka – YES WE CAN! In terms of queerness we say 'pink washing:' that'd be me. We'd be a great team. You the cisgendered jewish convert daughter of the incestuous monster, me the transgendered atheist daughter of a poor horse trainer (i'll drop the bourgeois heritage, you'll drop.. Well… ). We're both white, so that's good. We could buy art and smile on holiday photographs. And since new factors don’t mean different outcomes, Daddy could keep pulling his shit. I might not be the miss universe Jenna Talackova would have been. And because transgender questions are no longer worth federal supervision, I will have to stay in NYC where the liberal atmosphere prevents me from the consequences of my own rhetoric – and sanely ignore trans*bathroom nonsense. I'll be less sassy though – just the "uniform vision of girlishly long bottle-blond hair [with high cheekbones and an] absolute lack of variety in fashion" to not scare the horses on fox news. I'll be pretty enough for people to completely ignore all political content in favor of extensive commentary on the luscious ways I look at other country's presidents. Our resemblance paired with my vicious servility shall serve a single purpose: bug zapping non-complicity. "Saving" the Paris climate agreement while enabling the extension of coal mining was a nice first step – Thanks Ivanka! We are stronger together. Love, Marcelline the Vampire Queen ￼#womenwhowork #itwisewords
