The LGBTQ+ community have come a long way this decade. People who are transgender, an often-overlooked member of the LGBTQ+ community, have also made progress: Janet Mock, Laverne Cox, and Caitlyn Jenner have all participated in promoting transgender awareness and acceptance, along with countless others. However, despite it all, there are still those who do not accept them. On The Breakfast Club radio show, rapper Waka Flocka Flame started talking about family values and the media before mentioning “transgenders” and naming Caitlyn Jenner (well, she gets called “Bruce Jenner”).
This particular rant doesn’t last very long, but Waka Flocka says that promoting transgender people on TV is “really evil”, she is “rebuking God”, and that “God ain’t put them feelings in you, man, that’s the devil playing tricks on your mind. That’s a test from God”. Religion is often used as a defence against the LGBTQ+ community so it’s not that surprising, but wow. Listen to Waka Flocka’s comments below from 9:02.
