It isn’t transphobic. It is also not progressive. You can be both. It is an episode about genders and choice. Simple as that. Stop over reacting, people.
This was one of the reblog response to our last post regarding Ray Jessel’s performance on July 1st. We would ask that if this is the kind of response you are currently having to it then consider the following things:
1. Stating that you have trans* friends to substantiate you claim is disturbingly similar to claiming you’re not racist because you have friends of color.
2. As a cisgender person you do not get to decide what is offensive to trans* folks.
3. As a queer persons you do not get to decided what is offensive to trans* folks.
4. While we can not tell you the emotional response of your trans* friends when they laughed at this, keep in mind that marginalized communities often laugh at offensive things out of nervousness, discomfort, fear of facing microaggressions such as “stop being so sensitive.”
Okay, I get where you are coming from but I don’t see this song as ‘offensive’ to Trans, or even Transphobic. The way I see this is it is a comedy song to appeal to the lowest common denominator in American media culture which would be people who get a chuckle at the idea of people with parts that they ‘don’t normally have’. At best it is a piece of comedy that you didn’t get the joke to. It’s like what Carlos Menca or Jeff Foxworthy does.
At worst this song isn’t even Transphobic, as far as I see it. At worst this song is about a man who found an amazing, stunning, wonderful woman and it is his preference and choice not to date someone who has a penis, despite all the pluses.
Also there is a whole generational influence that you need to consider as this man was in his 20s during the 50s. That culture in America wasn’t exactly known to be friendly towards ANYONE, let alone transpeople.
But hey, that is just how I see it. You’re very welcome to your opinion.

Oh hey shes getting olde-
How dare you
WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS
THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE DON’T DO THIS TO ME
HOW DARE YOU WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME????????????????????????
My first dildo. Strange looking isn’t it? Doesn’t QUITE look like a regular ol’ penis. Aside from the franken-cock coloring it isn’t even a human penis. Haha, oh boy. I got this fella in small and soft form at bad-dragon.com and boy, is it fun to play with!
I’ve only had penetration with it once and that was the best orgasm I’ve ever had since learning to play with myself. I’m fairly tight, it’s hard to put my two of fingers inside of myself, so there was a lot of lube involved and I got maybe a few inches in before I had to stop.
I have been kind of worried about my sensitivity to PIV stimulation as I’ve only, until now, ever masturbated with clit stimulation but this has put me at ease. I regularly crave something inside me and get off very well to penetration. Yay, me!
