Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan stirred up controversy last week with a series of angry tweets directed at guitar pedal maker and transwoman Devi Ever. Ever criticized Corgan on a Smashing Pumpkins forum for his allegedly anti-gay views and lack of feedback on a pedal she'd made him. The singer shot back at Ever, tweeting that "he/she" is an "ugly pig" and sending her threats on Facebook.
Billy's actions have upset the genderqueer community, many of whom are accusing him of transphobia. They may be right; this isn't the first time Corgan has made borderline trans-bashing statements. So the question is: why is Corgan so hostile to transsexuals? After studying his career, I have discovered several possible explanations.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
