Kelly Osbourne’s Transphobic Rant: Humiliated by Chicks With Dicks and Trannys

November 1, 2011 ·

Recently the daughter of Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly Osbourne, opened up about her “humiliation”:

“Having to tell them (my parents) my fiance had cheated on me with a tranny who sold his/her story to the press (was the most uncomfortable moment). It was so humiliating. Everyone kept telling me that Luke was cheating on me, but I never believed them. It’s hard enough to get your head around someone cheating on you, but when someone is a chick with a d**k? Up until then, I’d always thought that the worst way to get cheated on would be with an ugly girl. Don’t you think? Because at least if they cheat on you with a gorgeous girl it makes some kind of sense. But men are different, I guess, they can have emotionless sex.”

While I think it’s horrible that Osbourne was cheated on, her hate filled rant that used some of the most objectifying and dehumanizing words is even worse. She’s implying that the trans woman in question has no value, other than sex. That you’d have to have “emotionless sex” with a trans woman.

Kelly, did you ever stop to think that maybe he cheated on you because of your bigoted and intolerant attitudes? Just a thought. Hate is a pretty ugly thing to be around.

Update: After a long discussion on Twitter with Osbourne about this, Osbourne did what any good ally does. She apologized, and has sought to educate others. You can read her guest post here.
