This isn’t the first time that Lil Mama has raised brows with her sentiments about the transgender community. The Billboard-charting performer has never been one to mince her words but this time she stunned some of her fans.
In a since-deleted post, the entertainer star reposted a tweet that read:
So children are too young to smoke cigarettes, too young to drink alcohol, too young to get a drivers license, too young to go to a club, too young to gamble, too young to rent a car, but old enough to cut off their genitals and/or ‘change’their gender?[thinking emoji]-This is insanity #America.
In her own caption accompanying the retweet, she added:
“DEPOPULATION AT ANY COST CAT FIGHTS SWORD FIGHTS Used be a cat now ima dog WHATEVER TO STOP NEW LIFE REPRODUCTION.
Now, the New York rapper has cleared up remarks she made that many felt were transphobic.
Children feel like they can make a choice of changing their genitals before they even go through puberty. You don’t even know who you are or what you like.
Lil Mama continued,
Young women are talking about BBLs and things like that before their breasts and their buttocks are even fully developed. We have to be very sensitive and mindful when we’re dealing with our children. We are not talking about grown people who can make the choice to do and be whatever they choose to do and be. We’re talking about children who may even look at us later on and say, ‘Well, why did you let me do that?’
