5 Lessons Snoopy Could Teach Snoop Dog About Transphobia

Snoop Dogg, the infamous west coast rapper, shared a transphobic meme about Caitlyn Jenner on his Instagram. He joins the ranks of pseudo celeb Drake Bell, who also made a deeply insensitive comment about Jenner'sVanity Fair cover

The meme is a picture of Akon that reads:

"Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 60 million africans with solar power. Im really upset that this isn't major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society." 

Snoop Dogg, who's "real name" is Calvin Cordozar Broadus, was nicknamed Snoopy, inspired by the Peanuts comic strip, by his parents. We think Snoop can learn a thing or two from his namesake. Here are five things about transphobia Snoop needs to learn ASAP:

1. In the trailer for her new show, Jenner says, "I'm the new normal." Instead of sharing an insensitive (and unsolicited, tbh) perspective, Snoop should take a nap and use his cold opinion as a pillow. 

2. No, Snoop. You haven't seen it all. Jenner brought the trans experience to mainstream America — so why put her down? Her story could help millions of people all over the world. 

3. Snoopy understands that just like Narcissus, you shouldn't allow your thirst for attention to take control of you. Jenner's story isn't about Snoop and as far as I know, Jenner isn't sitting around looking into the mirror thinking, "Hmm, I wonder what Snoop Dogg thinks about me ..." 

4. Instead of calling Jenner a "science project," Snoop would do well to be like Snoopy, and admit that he doesn't need to understand Jenner's experience to be supportive. 

5. We all have opinions, but with social media, it's so easy to blast them out into the world. If Snoop listened to Snoopy's advice, and instead of resposting ridiculous memes, he should learn something from Jenner.
