Sasha Allen's Trans Skeleton Song Is An Epic Clapback Against Bigots

Sasha Allen's Trans Skeleton Song Is An Epic Clapback Against Bigots

Sasha Allen's Transgender Skeleton Song

The song of the summer has arrived.

Sasha Allen is clapping back at transphobia in the most tragic yet heartwarming way.

Allen and his father, Jim, captured audiences when they first appeared on The Voice in 2021. Through his bond with coach Ariana Grande — and inability to give a bad performance — the two made it all the way to the semifinals before their elimination.

Allen is one of three transgender individuals to compete on the show, and the only one thus far to make it to the final rounds. Though he isn't competing anymore, music continues to be a passion for the 21-year-old, who's amassed over a million followers on Tik Tok through his humor and songs.

One of Allen's most recent pieces has gained traction online for its beautiful response to bigotry with an unlikely subject: skeletons.

After one user wrote to Allen that “when they dig up your bones in a thousand years, they’re going to know you were biologically female," the singer penned a response that had fans cheering.

Allen's song begins: "One day when they find my bones in the ground, whoever 'they' are will say 'Look what we found!' / A historical find, a relic of time, and they'll never attest that I don't know my mind."

The lyrics are seemingly in response to conservatives who disparage transgender youth by saying they are too young to know their gender identity, and are therefore too young to receive gender-affirming care.

"One day when they find my bones in the earth, they will not equate who I was to what I'm worth," Allen continues. "And they'll find your bones from the same frame of time, and they'll treat your bones just as they've treated mine.

Allen says that whoever discovers his remains in the future "won't consider assumptions you've made" or the divisiveness of today's time. More importantly, there will not be any difference then between him, and the person who commented.

As Allen sings, "It'll be determined, on the hill on which you die, that in terms of history, you were way off on the wrong side."
