Transgenders are Not Amused by Snapchat's New "Gender Swap" Filter
Your social media platform of choice is most likely littered with friends enjoying Snachat's "gender swap filter." You're also probably alarmed by how many people you know make sexy members of the opposite gender. I make quite the pretty princess if I do say so myself.
The important thing is people are enjoying themselves and having a good time. No harm, no foul. Right? Of course not. There's always a foul. Which in this case, is transgender people being unamused.
Snapchat's new photo filter that allows users to change into a man or woman with the tap of a finger isn't necessarily fun and games for transgender people.
Some say it reduces their very real and often painful experiences to folly.
Thirty-one-year-old Bailey Coffman is a transgender woman from New York. She says that "my gender is not a costume."
Uh, a biological man wearing lady wigs and lady clothes and painting his face in the manner of a lady is most certainly wearing a costume. Furthermore, I don't see how people using a gender-bending Snapchat filter is any different that what drag queens do. Oh, I forgot! Trans folk seem to have a problem with them too.
At least this is a break from taking opportunities away from girls (see WATCH: Female Athletes Speak Out Against Transgender Athletes in Powerful Video and VICE Trans Athlete Video is Pure Anti-Science Propaganda). Though, I don't expect that issue to stay on the back burner for too long.
Transgenders, much like lefties, stay on constant watch for something to complain about. This isn't so much about combatting injustices. It's more about racking up more victimhood points for the "most marginalized group" competition. Pathetic.
Speaking of transgenders.
