If you haven’t yet been introduced to the glorious world of Magdalene Visaggio, may I first point out that you’re missing out and you need to give her a follow right goddamn now. The GLAAD-award-winning writer, in addition to penning such instant classics as “Vagrant Queen” and “Kim & Kim,” she is also the primary proponent of the popular Twitter theory that Kurt Cobain, legendary singer/songwriter and frontman of the ur-90s grunge band Nirvana, was in fact a trans woman who did not have the language to identify as such.

Now, as with any time a trans woman tries to have an opinion or voice a belief online, people often get QUITE upset with Visaggio’s commitment to the trans-Cobain theory. Which is a damn shame, because as most trans people will tell you, the evidence is all there. You just have to look for it. 

A seemingly innocent statement, no? Well, of course not, because it’s coming from a trans woman, and people simply cannot handle the fact that trans women have opinions and want to talk about art and culture. How dare they!
