Wrong?

Several of the gender facist blogs are all a flutter over this Boost Mobile ad...


Of course, they are concerned that it portrays "transgender women" in a bad light. Monica Helms had this to say, "As you can see, this commercial just looks plane dumb on the visual level, but it also uses men in women’s clothes in a negative context. Trans people who saw this commercial went ballistic. Even though the commercial does not specifically make fun of trans people, out of the 300 million Americans, many will use this as another excuse to discriminate and hold back quality for Transgender Americans."

Perhaps even sillier is this remark from Autumn Sandeen, "Are you saying, Boost Mobile, that being visibly transgender a 'very visual wrong'? What does your anti-discrimination policies look like regarding 'gender identity or expression'? -- do your internal business policies tell you anything about this?"

I mean, really...if this ad is an example of what Sandeen thinks the results of his efforts to push his radical agenda should look like...well, that pretty much says for more against him than I ever could.


Personally, I think the whole Boost Mobile ad campaign is a bit silly. But the fact that people like Helms and Sandeen want to claim that this ad somehow insults "transgender people" offers an excellent example of why people might want to reconsider being lumped into that umbrella term.

I laughed my head off when I saw that commercial.
I laughed even harder when I read Helms blog.

I laughed so hard I started crying when I read Sandeen's silly childish rant.

Has the Government started adding something to tap water?

Sandeen Helms Syndrome is a horrible disorder.

Liz,

Yes, Sandeen's rant is absurd. But then, Sandeen is....well, absurd.

Just Jennifer said...

Yes, Sandeem Helms Syndrome is terrifying.

Have you noticed over at pams house blend the thread regarding this subject has been locked nobody can post new comments because Autumn isn't happy with the way the wind blows..........

Typical for Sandeen, let only the transvestite truth be known.

Sandeen a self defined submissive sissy(transvestite fetishists) can't deal with the fact most people could do without his dribble.....

Sandeen is jealous he was invited to be one of Danica's pit crew.
The same holds true for Mr Monica Helms.

There is someone you know who has seen Sandeen's collection of sissy cloths.
You should seek her out and ask her about Sandeen.........

Just Jennifer said...

Well, I can't say that I am surprised. Sandeen loves to censor anything that does not go his way. Trust me, I know that all too well.

The level of dishonesty that passes for journalism over at Pam and Autumn's transvestite blend is astounding.

That is the kind of Kool-Aid the trannys love to guzzle, I guess that is suppose to make it right and true.

Just Jennifer said...

Yes, Sandeen has no interest in the truth. After all, he is a "new media journalist." I guess that means that things like ethics do not apply.

And yes, Sandeen is one of the leading purveyors of that Kool-Aid.

Are you kidding me??? "Offended Transgender..."???? The very thought of legitimizing this morally corrupt behavior OFFENDS ME!!! Hey people, listen up. ANYTHING DOESN'T GO. Just because you thought up some freaky thing, doesn't mean it's okay. This country is in trouble.

Shameless self-promoter Autumn Sandeen is now GLAAD's go to person for things like the recent radio show debacle? Oh wow.

Shameless self-promoter Autumn Sandeen is now GLAAD's go to person for things like the radio show scuffle over "transgender kids". I really wish sexually-charged words like "transgender" were not associated with children.

I really hate this comment system! lol

Just Jennifer said...

Well John, I can see your point, but I also recognize that things are more complex than you might realize.

Ariablue,

Yes, Sandeen's ego is again in overdrive. I notice that he is pushing people to file complaints with the FCC. While I think the show in question was silly, Sandeen's understanding of broadcast law is a joke. He reminds me of the fanatics that flooded the FCC with complaints about Madalyn Murray O'Hair's supposed petition to remove all religious programming. Nothing is likely to come of it, unless the Obama administration decides to make a full frontal attack on the First Amendment.
