The Trans Cultural group wants her Aretha Franklin's "Natural Woman..." REMOVED

Aretha Franklin's classic hit "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" has recently come under scrutiny from a transgender activist group based in Norway. The Trans Cultural Mindfulness Alliance (TCMA) has requested the removal of the song from streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify, citing the single’s lyrics as offensive.


The TCMA claims that the song perpetuates multiple harmful anti-trans stereotypes and has helped inspire acts of harm against transgender women. The newly founded organization aims to promote cultural changes to ensure the inclusivity of trans individuals. The group also cites "Lady Marmalade" by Patti LaBelle as transphobic, stating that "only cisgender women can be sex workers."


This request has sparked a heated debate on the internet, with many people expressing their opinions on the matter. Some argue that the song is a source of inspiration for many women and should not be removed from streaming services. Others argue that it is important to be mindful of the feelings and perspectives of transgender individuals and that the song should be removed.


Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" was released in 1968 and has since become one of her most iconic and beloved songs. The song is a celebration of women's strength and empowerment and has been covered by many artists over the years.









Regardless of one's stance on this issue, it is important to remember that everyone has the right to define themselves on their own terms and that we should work towards creating a more inclusive world for all.
