National Brotherhood Week: Trans Version

5 posts in this topic

The general forum post about haters reminded me of a Tom Lehrer quote from something he said before he went into this song on his original recording. The original song talked about race and religion and was written in the 1960's.

I wrote some alternative lyrics:

Oh, the queer folks hate the straight folks,

and the straight folks hate the queer folks.

All of my folks hate all of your folks,

it's American as Apple Pie!

But during National Brotherhood Week,

National Brotherhood Week,

Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace are dancing cheek-to-cheek!

Step up and shake the hand

Of someone you can't stand,

You can tolerate them if you try.

Oh, the radfems hate the trans folks

And the trans folks hate the rad fems

To hate all but the right folks

Is a long established meme

But during National Brotherhood Week,

National Brotherhood Week,

Christine Beatty's headlining Michigan Fest!

It's fun to eulogize

The people you despise

As long as you don't let them use your restroom!

Oh the Mormons hate gay marriage,

And the Catholics hate birth control

Evangelicals hate the Muslims

And everybody hates the trans!

But during National Brotherhood Week,

National Brotherhood Week,

Rush Limbaugh has agreed NOT to speak!

Be nice to people who

Are inferior to you.

It's only for a week so have no fear!

It really isn't gonna make you genderqueer!

If Rush Limbaugh has agreed not to speak

Could we make a year and not just a week?
