    Link: Why You So Insensitive Urban Outfitters? - This isn`t the first time they`ve peddled racist/bigoted/hate-mongering merchandise. One more reason to boycott them.

    im confused as to how this is racist, bigoted, or hate-mongering. Does Jack need to accept Jill for who she is at the end of the rhyme?

    I don`t see the problem. Its not saying anything about transsexuals, aside from they exist. Sure, its not what I`d call charming, but its not what I`d call hate-mongering either.

    Transgender isn`t a race and this isn`t pushing hatred or bigotry. It`s just crude and silly. Things that we don`t expect shock us but that doesn`t mean the thing is bad or even unwanted. For all you know the next line talks about the joys Jack had sucking Jills unexpected c*ck right off.

    Second verse:
    UP Jack got and home did trot
    His hand upon his winkie
    He went to bed and rubbed his head
    Thinking about Jills dinkie...

    (Real Second Verse:
    Up Jack got and home did trot
    As fast as he could caper
    He went to bed to mend his head
    With vinegar and brown paper)

    See? I can do that! Lmao!

    Also: Is he/she a transvestite: dressing in the garb of the other gender? Or a transsexual: believing oneself to BE the other gender? (usually wanting surgery to "correct" the problem.)

    Why boycott them for this, that`s just stupid talk. Hopefully the OP is kidding...

    How is this hate-mongering? It merely mentions that trannies exist. It doesn`t say that being a tranny is immoral, or that all trannies should die or anything like that.

    so... chill out.

    Offended? At what? Jack is strait, expecting a strait girl, and is shocked to find that Jill is not so strait, and is in fact a man. I think anyone who`s been to Bangkok can relate to that poem.

    @Zombunny I`ve heard transsexual people refer to themselves as trannies before. The word isn`t inherently offensive, its the context in which its used.

    As someone in the gay community I was not offended. Are we supposed to be offended now at childish poems? People need to lighten up.

    We call Transvestites "Tranny`s". We don`t call Transexuals this. But I can see why they would be offended being called that but they need to lighten up also. The best thing to call a Transexual is whatever gender they identify with. I think anything else is rude.

    "I call transvestites "cross dressers" and transgendered persons "trannies". Not trying to argue, just wondering at your terminology..."

    I`ve only noticed it in the last year or so, the Transgender community really finds being called a Tranny offensive. May not be the same in Canada. Lance Bass had to apologize a while ago for saying Tranny. He was just as confused at its offense as any of us.

    I see nothing racist/bigoted/hate-mongering about this... There was no gay bashing, racist slurs, or anything of the like. I guess tranny can be seen as `bad` by some people but... Other than that, this was pretty funny haha.

    People just need to get a sense of humor. If you undergo something as life changing and impacting as a transgender operation expect people to make light of the situation. Anything that huge gets made fun of.

    Absolutely. When I came out to my father, after he assured me that nothing had changed, he said, "Don`t expect me to stop telling gay jokes." It was a wonderful and honest thing to say.

    "Guys, the problem here is the use of the word "tranny". Calling a trans person a tranny is like calling a gay person a faggot. Get your poo straight."

    you`re talking poo... most transvestite bars over here refer to themselves as tranny bars or have tranny nights and that`s what they are advertised as. There`s a well-known drag revue club a couple of miles down the road and has flyers plastered with the word on it.

    ffs some people just look to be offended.
