“you cannot pen an anthem without at least understanding those for whom you are supposedly writing it”

Gwen Smith in the Bay Area Reporteron “Mister Sister”:

I can hardly say that the tune treats male-to-female gender identities in a very affirming fashion – and that starts from the very title of the song. “Mister Sister” sounds like “She-Male” or “He-She,” both of which are considered offensive by many in the transgender community.

  1. But……she had a consultant to help her on trans issues….

    Wikipedia:
    “RuPaul’s first prominent national exposure came in 1989 with an extra role dancing in the video for “Love Shack” by The B-52’s.”

    • With that as a standard, the next trans anthem should be penned by Roger Moore.
