London Wake UP! It's Kelli 'transphobic cultural imperialistic bigot' Busey Calling

I'm being called a transatlantic capitalistic cultural imperialist because I objected to a drag queen partying at the London TDOR with a rendition of 'I'm a tra##y'. Well London peeps, some of your own country's trans folk are equally upset about this.

I wouldn't have even know about it if it hadn't been for your own country woman's blog post expressing her abhorrence of what you did.

I said essentially the same thing Helen did, but as is my style, I took it further, inflaming passions and yes even pushing the envelope of decency and creditability.

But the essence of my objection remains valid and unanswered by your indignation.

How can you justify so offending any portion of your community just to satisfy your sense of rebellion?

Cultural Imperialism. Excuse me for jumping to avoid your jerking knees.

The Internet has long been used to mix our nationalities unique sensitivities and create new social mores. We have all long 'capitalised' on that fact without any of the participants of the London TDOR before voicing there objections.

Am I wrong about the 'T' word? Could be wouldn't be the last time. But here's the 'rub'.

I use history as my tool to validate.

The 'N' word at one time was used widely as a form of rebellion and self identity much as those who insist on using the 'T' word do now. At the height of the rioting the 'N' word was a battle cry, but ultimately it's usage was devastatingly detrimental.

Since the pejorative 'ni##er' has become mainly unheard, POC and others are now being understood, loved and respected by each other as never before.

After the 'T' word runs it course as he 'N' word did, history will be replayed and we will see the same results.

I just hope some peeps do wake up so this doesn't take as long.


Drag queen "Miss Kimberly" Parties it up at the 2010 London TDOR with a rendition of "I'm a tranny"

Drag queen "Miss Kimberly", pictured right, regaled the London 2010 TDOR with a rendition of 'I'm a woman' substituting 'tranny' for 'woman'.

Helen G at the UK based blog "Bird of Paradox" seemed to be incensed, as were as she reported, many transgender people in attendance at the vigil. In a post about the 2010 TDOR Bird of Paradox she writes
"The use of the t-word last night by the singer at the London TDoR vigil was, in my opinion, both inappropriate and insensitive. Further, to expect all those of us attending the vigil to happily join in with the singalong as though we were partying at a nightclub, was either jaw-droppingly naive or deliberately provocative."

Why should Helen Boyd be surprised that the 2010 TDOR was desecrated by this man? The attendees weren't upset when he did the same song at the 2009 TDOR. Judging by the laughter of the men room such at the 2009 TDOR like J Jaiden Geirrsson's they thought he was a riot.

The 2010 London TDOR was a party laughing it up as a cisgender man who while performing drag makes a mockery of trans folk.

Where is the spine of London's transgender community? Why is the London Trans community complacent, complicit and silent about this atrocity?

Why has the London TDOR become a drag show? The only things missing from making the London transgender Day of Remembrance a complete insult to our dead was a strip stage, pole and drinks.

Or maybe the London transgender community will reclaim the 2011 TDOR and hold a event respectful of not just the living, but the dead as well.
