84-Year-Old Gives AGT a Reason to Live

(YouTube link)

America’s Got Talent, along with the many other talent shows on TV now, has been losing audience members by the millions. But thanks to the internet, we don’t have to miss the rare act that stands out. Here, 84-year-old Ray Jessel debuts an original song that leaves a lasting impression. The song starts at about 1:25, and you DO NOT want to be sipping coffee during the performance. You might want to wear headphones: despite being on broadcast TV, the song is a bit risqué and may be considered NSFW. And the tune might stick in your head all day. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

I realise it's all "in good fun", but isn't it quite insulting to trans women? I'm not saying this, calling for pitchforks and torches...but just think about it for a minute.

Were this song to be about being gay, for instance, would this be laughed at just as much in this day and age? I mean, in the late 1990s to mid-2000s there was "Will and Grace"...but look how far the integrity has come...thinking of series like "The L Word" and "Orange is the New Black", where that's being handled as more than just a cheap joke.
