Publisher Luis Venegas talked to Dazed Digital about the thought behind “The Candydate”, as the clever coverline reads:
“I especially love the cover story, which for the first time isn’t a super-popular star, but a fabulous, beautiful black transwoman channeling a politician who looks pretty much like Michelle Obama. I remember back in early 2007 when the Democratic Party’s nominees were narrowed down between two ‘controversial’ stereotypes never before seen for presidency: a black man, Barack Obama; and a woman, Hillary Rodham Clinton. At that time, I thought, ‘when will the time come when these archaic walls break down and the White House will be occupied by, for example, a black, transsexual woman?’”
Weird thing is, I would totally vote for her if she were running on a platform of lower taxes & smaller government.
You know why?
No boob belt.
Anyway, this picture makes me very happy because you KNOW liberals find it insulting and demeaning to Michelle Obama (which it is), but they can’t say a word about it because transsexuals are a “more equal” protected class, and calling out this bit of vile effrontery would classify the critic as homophobic.
