This isn"t the first time they"ve peddled racist/bigoted/hate-mongering merchandise. One more reason to boycott them.

This is not hateful. I`m confused. I love trannies, and they don`t mind being called that, last I checked. Some people just try to find things to be offended by. It`s a joke... Jeez.

I fail to see how this is racist... are transgendered people a race now?

"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.

Hate-mongering? How `bout predicating an unexpecting protagonist upon unsuspected grounds? (i.e., the ideal of ironic comedy)

It`s funny when it happens to a non-protected minority group.

I`m gay and thought it was hilarious, as did my bf, and a transgendered friend of ours.

Ok, when the "humor" of Andrew Dice Clay dirty nursery rhymes comes back to "in" status, whoever posts or submits this sh*t DESERVES to be ripped a new one. It was f*cktarded back then, and it sure as hell isn`t funnier now. Sheesh.

Thx @Markust! Actually I`ve been suffering from the depression real bad (and intestinal troubles) these past three months, so I`d rather be grumpy and happy than this. Of course happy & happy would be best!
Seriously thanks for noticing, I do hope to get better eventually.

The one we told when I was a kid:

"Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To have a little fun,
Stupid Jill forgot her Pill,
and now they have a son."

"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."

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.

Fair cop @markust, thx for the honest answer.

I still like MY poem too:
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)

"Doesn`t it seem kinda like trans-people were looking to get upset about something and decided "tranny" could serve as their very own "fag"?"

I have had that same thought.

tranny is NOT an offensive term...neither is Jew...or Jap...or commie. They are all just the shortened names of things that are literally what the word says.

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.

"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.

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.

@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.

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.

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.

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...

I hate when people suggest boycotting because they were offended. If you let every little thing bother you than you`re going to live a long, miserable life.

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.

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.

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?
