Elektra was on pure form in the latest episode of Pose as she delivered her greatest read of all time, leaving no survivors.
Pose fans were in for a treat in season three’s “Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” which sees Elektra (Dominique Jackson) splurge on the wedding of Angel’s dreams.
But as the girls gleefully shop for wedding dresses they’re abruptly reminded of the reality of being trans when the owner refuses to serve them, telling them they’re not “real women”.
Enter Elektra, who takes a long, slow sip of her drink before reading him to absolute filth with the most devastating takedown of the entire show.
“I can see from your sad little wedding band that you are married, but that doesn’t mean you’ve had any contact with a woman for quite some time,” she begins.
“Even a loving wife would avoid her impotent husband if his testicles hung so low that they grew filthy from dragging along the floor once he took off his tighty-whities.
“And I doubt – no excuse me, I know – that no other women have paid you any mind, because women aren’t attracted to men who aren’t tall enough to ride the Cyclone at Coney Island.”
The man was clearly reduced to ashes by this point but Elektra wasn’t done. “If not for pity, your closest proximity to a vagina would have been at your birth,” she continued, “so we can excuse the fact that you cannot see the royalty gracing your store.
“I have seen real men, and I can assure you, I am not looking at one right now.”
Lesson learned: Don’t mess with mother.
Pose fans went wild for the scene, celebrating the “best Elektra read of all time” on social media.
