Beautiful Trans Women Make Ke$ha Feel Insecure

Freaks are what make everything mildly more interesting in life but with trannies, they make me want to be a better woman. I see these men who have way better bodies than I do, more beautiful faces, better complexions, beautiful makeup, and they’re more fun than any person I’ve met in my life. They make me feel like I’m not a very good woman.

—Ke$ha, the intolerable but unavoidable auto-tuned pop singer, on how trans women one-up her [via]

      I can’t decide what’s worse — the awful noises that come out of her mouth when she’s “singing”, or the awful noises that come out of her mouth when she’s “speaking”.

      To be fair, it’s not exactly ALL THAT HARD to have a more beautiful face than Ke$ha, even the rare times when it isn’t caked in sweat, glitter, hair, and runny mascara…

      She’s very honest. I’ve seen similar comments posted by women on youtube of transwomen.

      “Trannies.” “Freaks.” “These men.” Oy vey, someone send this girl to a re-education camp!

      However, someone- please remind me why Ke$ha is even remotely significant? Surely, people are not actually buying the “music” she is recording, right? Is there something else she is contributing to that is securing her a place on pop culture’s radar?

      Awful attempt to adopt Lady Gaga’s success by flattering the queers. “These men.” What a joke.

      Kesha: I don’t exist to make your life interesting nor am I a man.

      F-you.

      Typical entitled straight blond girl bullshit– “Let me see other people’s experiences through the prism of my own self-importance!”

      One thing she has me wondering about–do we differentiate between trannies and transwomen? The transwomen I know are just everyday folk trying to go about their jobs, lives, etc like the rest of us. But a good ol’ fashion tranny like Amanda Lepore or some of the fierce bitches who used to work the Meatpacking District–that’s a whole other thing. Is tranny a different identity or just a naughty slang word?

      you’re right, it was offensive what she said. she’s a dumb fuck, but i do think she was at least trying to pay a compliment.

      @merkin: I believe Amanda Lepore refers to herself (on her outgoing voicemail message) as “the World’s number one transsexual with a fully functional vagina.”

      Well, I’m coming from the reference point of a trans woman and think it’s slur comparable with “f&*got” or “c$nt”. I know that a lot of people in the drag world use it and I understand that it’s innocent slang sometimes but I think that it really does do harm with the cultural stereotypes that come along with it. The only time I’ve been called is when it has been directed towards me as a slur.

      Personally, I’ve known a few people who’ve identified as “tranny” or “shemale”. They can decide to identify as they want, but I think that if they are doing so in serious way (ie. not “re-claimation” or a ironic way), then they are buying into a cissexist idea of trangender people in general. Kinda like a gay man identifying as a “nelly” based on a homopohbic stereotype.

      What I think that Kesha’s quote is an example in that people un-familiar with trans issues (both in the gay and straight worlds) tend to lump MtF transsexuals, drag queens and Cross dressers in to one big stereotype. That stereotype of “men-in-dresses”. And that’s a part of the problem, that many people don’t differentiate and don’t care enough to differentiate even if we explain it to them. We’re all “drag queens* and perverts” to them.

      *And I’m not bashing draq queens, I love DQ’s, it’s just that it’s frustrating to confused with one.

      Ke$ha is not that cute and has almost no talent. Sorry but I think her music is lou$y. She open her mouth and nonsensicality falls out. and no musicality.
      She shouldn’t be talking down TransWomen, that’s jealousness and unneccessary.

      @Patricia #12: Based on your good advice I will not change my name to $hanelle, but instead to Shan€££€.
      Just kidding.

      Many of you are putting way too much thought into the ‘these men’ comment. It sounds like she meant it to be a compliment and it just came out in a way that looks bad in print. The more I read about Ke$ha and her path to get where she is and the ideas behind her music, the more I think she’s more put together than people give her credit.
      (Plus, she likes your beard.)

      Kesha’s singing sounds like a cow being castrated. Her brain consists of turd.
