I was surfing to avoid working, and looking up random videos. I came across a beautiful young trans woman talking about the kind of hate speech that has been employed against her. Some people said they wanted to kill her. Amazing how much hate there is in the world. It took me a minute or two to realize - it's Chris Crocker! From the Britney video that was all over the place two years ago. O-M-G! I knew this was ripe for a weekend post. Videos after the jump. You go, girl!

Note: I'm off at Netroots Nation this week, so I thought I'd use this post from the wayback machine. It was very popular the first time around. Chris also had a recent heart-to-heart with the camera, which I've put at the end.

First, here's the original:

Here's Chris on "The Boy Or Girl Question":

And here's Chris to say no to trans bashing.

Here's Chris's recent heart-to-heart with the camera. Chris, if I can give you any advice, get your butt to New York.

Um... Chris Crocker being trans? Yeahhhh.... Kind of 'old news'.
Using the phrase "you go girl" = 1 shot... And I'm at work right now so I owe a shot.

Your are doing a story on this tired you-tube 2 minutes of fame whore? I don't think he is a trans, but just a very queen man.

Please don't mis-gender trans people. Even if you don't like them or don't think they are "trans enough", it's incredibly rude!

I remember Chris Crocker before she got famous with the Britney video, and she's calmed down a lot since then. She's incredibly intelligent and I'm glad she's still making videos, even if I don't YouTube much anymore.

I don't know Chris, but in my musings, he's a puppy trapped in the midwest, with the same dreams that most all of them have - to be a 'star', to be famous, to escape. That's fine, and I hope he achieves it. But in the meantime, I'm helpless but to point out that working at the Piggly-Wiggly is not a bad gig at all - especially in this economy. It might give him a bit of perspective? In my own un-fabulous life; most all of my dreams were hatched - and escapes planned - thanks to the inspiration that menial jobs inpire. ... Just my thoughts.....
