Personally, I hate when these types of topics come up because not only is it a reminder of how many feel about the LGBTQ community outside of “beating their face” or “laying their hair,” but it also serves unnecessary division. Especially amongst POC when we have plenty of other shit to worry about.
Comedian Jess Hilarious was definitely not in a joking mood when she incited a furious online debate about transgender women in America. The 31-year-old, who is known for proclaiming her “news is real,” lashed out with venom in response to a video post by a trans-TikToker Blessing Rose who unleashed a tirade about the prevalence of transphobia with an honestly questionable taken on periods.
“When the transphobia just comes out, the audacity, and just the arrogance for cis women to believe that they own periods. That they own womanhood. You don’t. You don’t own periods. You don’t own womanhood. You experience both, and both are different for every person. But, as a cis woman, it doesn’t belong to you, so you can’ t gate-keep it,” Blessing Rose said.
Throwing on her cape, Jess quickly hopped on in with a response in front of her followers. “Who the f— is gonna stand up for us? Who the f— stands up for us? And us, I mean women, real women, biological women, women who born with all the parts that you guys wish that you were. When does the delusion stop? What is the difference between you and someone who has been diagnosed to be mentally insane? The only difference is you don’t have a straitjacket on,” Hilarious railed.

Hilarious continued to rage about the topic of women “not owning periods. Stop talking out your f—–g a– Wake up!” she fumed. “How are you projecting your anger on real women, because we are the gate-keepers. We are the gate-keepers for periods. We’re the only ones that f—— bleed, honey. We’re the only ones that can give birth. We make y’all people. We make y’all. Y’all come from US. You can’t be US, you will never. You’re chasing something you’ll never ever get You’ll never be that.”
TV personality Ts Madison then entered the chat, stating that she sympathized with Hilarious’ viewpoint, but indicated that she doesn’t always appreciate the tone that the comedian adopts to convey her perspectives. This led to a bit of online back and forth between the two. Meanwhile, Twitter had its own set of intense exchanges regarding the merits of Hilarious’ stance. Take a look at some of it for yourself and let us know your take on this mess. Can’t we all just get along?
There are sooooo many “Real” women that get mistaken for being “transgender” Women and that’s where a lot of the anger comes from….
I do hope they take a Good look at how Transphobia affects ALL women……

I stand with Jess Hilarious. Transwomen (men in wigs) are LITERALLY the definition of misogyny and patriarchy. It’s a bunch of men dictating what a woman is while never having experienced anything associated to womanhood. https://t.co/fh6ZzLBDVq

"I don't see anything wrong with what Jess Hilarious said" yeah because you're transphobic too. Hope that helps 🙂

Didn’t Jess hilarious make multiple skits mocking and making jokes about Meg getting shot? Was she standing up for “Real Women” then? Oh okay

A transwoman can talk about periods and how they “don’t belong to womanhood” despite never having a period ever but Jess Hilarious responds & now people are mad.
