Psycho killer, qu’est-ce que c’est?

October 16, 2008

Well, as long as I’m in ye olde gothicke monster mode, how about this for a truly frightening link: The top 15 transsexual killer movies.

I mean really now – in how many ways is it possible to be offensive towards trans people whilst still thinking you’re the wittiest person on the face of the earth? This is hate speech wearing clown’s makeup.

For the lazy writer the transsexual angle is an easy way to dramatize a killers dual personality and exploit an audiences ingrained prejudices and fears and touch on certain undercurrents of misogyny and homophobia that are uncomfortable but can also make for disturbing and gripping filmmaking.

Translation: Even though all trans women are really just psycho killer blokes-in-frocks, they’re still only here for our entertainment. Aren’t they amusing?

…and hilarity ensues…

He wishes.

Oh but those selfish trans people, well, they had to go and spoil the movie just by appearing in it.
Those bastards. They always have to ruin everything for the nice cis ladies and gents, don’t they?

SPOLIER ALERT: Be advised that the transsexual angle in some of these films comprises that films twist ending.

Translation: For “twist ending” substitute “trans panic attack”.

And he should count himself lucky I’m not in grammar nazi mode.

Fuckwit.

Can’t seem to face up to the facts
I’m tense and nervous, can’t relax
Can’€™t sleep, bed’€™s on fire
Don’t touch me I’€™m a real live wire.

Psycho Killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run away
Oh oh oh oh
Ay ay ay ay um

You start a conversation, you can’t even finish it.
You’re talkin’ a lot, but you’re not sayin’ anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?

Psycho Killer,
Qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run away
Oh oh oh
Psycho Killer
Qu’est-ce que c’est?
Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run away
Oh oh oh oh
Ay ay ay ay um

Ce que j’ai fait, ce soir-la 
Ce qu’elle a dit, ce soir-la 
Realisant mon espoir
Je me lance vers la gloire … OK
Nya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
We are vain and we are blind
I hate people when they’re not polite

Psycho Killer,
Qu’est-ce que c’est?
fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa far better
Run run run run run away
Oh oh oh oh
Ay ay ay ay um
