Hip-hop artist Black Madam is in the news this week because she's a person of interest in the death of another woman. Here's her video for "Come on in my Kitchen."

I'm not going to put up any more of her stuff because the rest of it is even worse.

For the life of me, I don't understand people who, by going on the cheap, get 'garage and kitchen sink' procedures done from non licensed, non pros.

And pinning all hopes on an entertainment career on something like this, rather than talent is what's wrong with people all over television becoming rich and famous without having to be talented.

And even if you ARE...
Michael Jackson's vanity and self indulgence required that he employ the desperate who would bend the rules at his command.
And it cost him his life too.
I NEVER feel sorry for the victims of botched procedures like this, nor the perpetrators who'll do ANYTHING for a buck.

Our Way Of Life
In the news I’ve been seeing so many broadcast and blogs on the hot topic of but injections…
Well, it’s twenty years later since my first injections. I was a young and desperate trans girl longing to look and feel more like a true female. Hormones were just not enough, nor did they work as fast to get the changes and softness I as a young trans girl longed for. I remember Getting up on the first day of my injections, my girlfriend and I hopped on the Amtrak train to NYC for our first round of Silicone shots. It was like a birthday celebration to me. Anxiety and Excitement Enthralled me. Once in New York city, we hopped in a taxies and on to uptown and a more passable me we went. As we were buzzed in and Up the elevator into this well kept polished uptown apartment building my girlfriend and I went into this very classy looking woman’s apartment . I remember getting up on her table, and it all beginning. It was like hell, I don’t know what I was thinking a silicone jab would actually feel like getting, but never in my wildest imagination did I think it would feel like hells fire up under my skin. The injections were followed by the second burn sensation of crazy glue as my lay nurse sealed off my fresh injection holes from leakage. On with the antiseptic spray and finally some sort of plastic wrap to protect my clothes for our train journey back home. Yes! It’s all over and I survived. The pain was like nothing I ever felt in my life, but once I looked into the mirror as I was putting back on my tights… it was like love at first sight. There I saw the beginning of the hips and buttocks I‘ve always dreamt. No more silhouette of a little boy’s body, that I wanted in my youth to commit suicide over, I was a girl now. The hips I new I was meant to have, were finally on their way . From that day forth it was a ritual in my Trans life every other Saturday just as normal as going to church every Sunday.
I am expressing these personal detail of my very private life as a transsexual woman , to allow you the reader into a transgender woman’s world for a better understanding of this thing we do that’s called “Pumping” aka “Sill” aka “ Getting Work” aka “The Candy“… it’s all about, “Our Way Of Life“.
Weather you as an outsider think it’s a Bizarre or weird cure to a cheaper alternative to the main stream cosmetic surgery body sculpting procedure. Pumping in most cases is the trans woman’s bridge between a life of Passing or a life Torture Ridicule and Self Hate because of not passing and standing out to much for looking too masculine in woman’s clothes. So please News Casters, Blogers and Main Stream people. Do not knock our way of making it in this Trans hostile world if your not willing to stand up for the Trans community and make changes to help open avenues to help trans woman get better medical care to help legally meet our needs of transitioning. Being able to get “pump” has aloud me and thousands of my trans sisters to live a beautiful normal life free from harassment in such a climate of trans hate.
Now I’m noticing that with these great results that can be obtained through years of perfecting the silicone body sculpting procedure via “getting pumped“, the idea of getting pump has seemingly bled into the mainstream of genetic female Celebrities, Reality Stars, Strippers and the Common Woman seeking a better self image. With this in mind, Ladies… with this comes the fact that we as trans woman all get up on the table knowing that something can go wrong. However, it’s a chance to us that’s well worth taking and with all knowledge that the person performing the procedure is not a formally trained doctor, but someone with knowledge of the procedure and has been trained through a word of mouth system that has gone on in the Trans community for more than 50 years. These lay practitioners are people willing to help Trans women achieve a better standard of life. Thus if something goes a stray during the procedure, it is well understood that they are to be fully excused of any wrong doing. Let it be known again that this is “our way of life” as the Trans woman and not to be taken as a “trend”. Trans women die from this procedure many times. However, it is a risk well worth taking for the result, which could lead to a more passable and happy fulfilled life. So please remember why we the Trans Women do this. This is not just something we do for vanity. Getting pumped is a trans woman’s life line. So if you chose to get on the table knowing the dangers of this procedure, you should fall under the same rules of engagement as the trans woman as far as subjecting your lay doctor to the No Fault Clause if something goes a stray during this procedure… It’s our way of life!
God Bless Claudia Seye Aderotimi’ and the many other trans woman’s lives lost in this struggle of self insecurities and may they rest in peace. However, what happen to these women was not malice or murder and the media so well puts it, it’s a situation that we the trans woman face everyday we decide to move more closer towards our full transition. Please don’t knock our way of life, especially if your not willing to help the trans woman’s cause to make things better.
BLACK MADAM is not a murderer, God bless you sister!
