Waka Flocka Flame: WTF?

Who cares?

Really, why should the trans community or anyone else care what some Atlanta rapper thinks about Caitlyn Jenner or any other transgender person?

As you may have heard, the rapper is facing a backlash for some negative comments he made about the marketing of transgender people. In a few words, he says “It’s evil, man.”

OK, so that’s his view, and he is entitled to it.

But why the backlash?

This rapper — who I credit for his support of PETA — shouldn’t be confused with people like, say, John Lennon, who was “more popular than Jesus” for many. Lennon’s words will live on for generations. But Waka Flocka Flame has about as much professional longevity as a firefly on a summer night.

Meanwhile, the trans backlash and the media — ever anxious to play up trans issues . . .  hey, that is a form of marketing, isn’t it? — attention appear to give his comments some credibility when, in fact, they are just the view of one guy who believes in a supernatural entity (yes, WFF mentioned God in his rant) that never speaks for itself for some strange reason . . . .

Let it go, folks . . . WFF’s thoughts on Caitlyn and other trans people are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
