HBO’s Euphoria gets off on showing probably the worst liberal entertainment has to offer, whether it’s statutory rape, way too many penises, or teenagers becoming cam girls. The July 7 episode continues that trend featuring those things and more with a deeper look at the show’s transgender teenager.
On “Shook One Pt. II,” we get a spotlight on Jules (Hunter Schafer), the trans teen girl first introduced with the aforementioned rape scene with a grown man in a motel. At eleven, before transitioning, Jules was committed to a psych ward. Even as a boy, Jules suffered from several mental issues which likely only got worse after staying there. Upon Jules’ first visit, we see a patient whip out his ****, shouting, “Suck my dick, you **** ****!” On the bright side, this is the only **** we see in this episode, and that is sadly worth remarking on now after seeing dozens in previous episodes.
Show - Jules - Body - Dysphoria - Rue
The show also doesn’t shy away from commenting on Jules’ body dysphoria. Rue (Zendaya) narrates the scene stating, “She didn't just hate her brain, though. She hated her body, not every part, just her shoulders, and her arms, also her chest, her stomach, her thighs. Her knees were the worst. Plus her ankles, and her big, ****, stupid feet. She hated her life, not because it was bad, but because when you hate your brain and your body, it's hard to enjoy the rest.”
