And then, diagnosing the Oscars as one symptom of a broader institutional failure: “It is a system of social oppression and diminished opportunities for transpeople that has been employed by capitalism in the U.S. to crush our dreams and our collective spirit.”
So just being nominated for an Oscar is oppression then.
By the way, so you don’t have to I’ve listened to the song. And some other stuff from the same bloke. And sans trans there’s nothing special, not even much good. Light tenor with way too much vibrato. Meh. Neopolitan opera lovers would be rejecting it for not enough sforza.
Rather the point of all that castrati, counter tenor, stuff is to give the male richness and power of the voice to that upper register. Not happening here.
