Caitlyn Jenner will never be a woman, but the gold medalist is certainly problematic to liberals. Earlier this week, Jenner posted a photo on Instagram with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, and captioned it: “@iamstevent and I are working on our duet for Dude Looks Like a Lady. One of my favorite songs!”
“Dude Looks Like a Lady” is that song about, well, a stripper who appears to be a woman but is actually a man. Jenner’s choice of this tune as his theme song is of course ironic — an irony the transgender celebrity is fully aware of and embraces.
“That became my theme song,” Jenner explained in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night. “It made me feel good.”
But people are NOT HAVING ANY OF IT, and have taken to the Internet to share their displeasure with Jenner’s music tastes as being “transphobic.”
“Please stop hurting the community that you claim to be a part of,” one commenter writes, according to Refinery 29. “You are saying incredible [sic] dangerous things.”
So it’s “dangerous” for Jenner to like a cheeky Aerosmith song? Come on.
Are you f**king serious, you’re literally giving people that are against us more ammunition to attack us with. Are you that f**king stupid, Caitlyn? Omg, I just want to slap the sh*t out of you with a corn tortilla with hot sauce 😤
I’ve never been slapped with a corn tortilla with hot sauce, but it sounds painful.
You are furthering a narrative that harms trans women. As we fight to stop anti-trans legislation, you are sending a message to the masses that harms our community. Stop. Think about how this will impact the average trans woman. The message the masses will receive is ‘trans woman are guys in dresses.’ We do not care what your intention is. We care about the message you are sending. You do not truly represent us. I do not see you coming to Texas and fighting for us. Just stop. I am tired of burying my trans siblings.
This isn’t the first time the trans community has said Jenner isn’t one of them. Jenner has been attacked and labeled as not trans enough for being wealthy, for being a Republican, and for voting for Trump.
If Jenner, who has reportedly undergone multiple surgeries to appear more female, isn’t a real transperson, who is? Why does the trans community continually move the goal posts on what makes someone trans? How can anyone tell what transgender is if we are not accepting people’s self-identification any more? And if embracing a politically incorrect song helped him get through tough times in his life, who cares?
This is what the trans movement does. They silence and slap down individuals who think differently than they do. Within the trans community, groupthink must be wholeheartedly embraced by its members, or they risk being alienated by the rest. According to the Left, you’re allowed to identify yourself however you like, but if you think the wrong things, these privileges will be revoked.
Also, we need to talk about Steven Tyler’s look here. @jonthabakerlol read my mind: “Steven been lookin like a lady for quite some time, theres alot of unsaid things going on in this pic.” Steven Tyler, is there some news you’re waiting to reveal?
