BTW lyrics: Transgendered or Transgender

MisterDeDe

A little gramar question

I was always singing ''Transgender life'' in BTW song with genius.com lyrics

Now I checked on her booklet, picture disc and google lyrics and it's: Transgendered

 

I'm still learning english so I'd like to know which is correct. Thank you!

Transgender.

Transgendered isn’t a word, although as a trans person myself a lot of people use it.

Don’t you ever let a soul in the world tell you that you can’t be exactly who you are

I think you're overestimating our English grammar knowledge, but I think both are valid :poot: I'll get ready to be proven wrong tho

It is a word since people use it. It may not be in the dictionary but if people use it I think it's valid. I may be wrong.

In common usage they are interchangeable, so it's not that big a deal either way.

To be fair, the booklet has several typos.

Well yeah it is a word of course but it’s not correct. Just like ‘transgenders’. Wrong terminology basically.

Yeah I know...every Gaga album has a typo lol... but I thought that the picture disc wouldn't lie as there is just BTW song lyrics there on the back...guess they didn't care back then haha (and still don't care)

 

I Think I'm gonna create a thread with all lyrics from booklet typos lol

I think I found a great explenation. So the word is correct but we shouldn't use it. So the biggest LGBT anthem AKA Born This Way is gonna offend transgender people? (or Gaga don't sing ''Transgendered''?)

 

Transgendered (Verb).

Using transgender as a verb (e.g. transgendered) suggests that being transgender is something that happened to a person rather than reflecting who they actually are. For example, we don't say “John Smith is a gayed man”; therefore, we wouldn't say “Joanne Smith is a transgendered woman”.

I’ve seen many trans people say that they prefer “transgender” to “transgendered”, and I think Gaga sings “transgender” for a few years now

No, it’s clear she just used the wrong/outdated term in the song and has since course corrected. Born This Way lyrics are just a bit messy (chola & orient made were also choices :bear:)

I always heard transgendered, and I think she meant it as a verb like someone who lives a life being trans.

I am authistic, so don't be offended if I make a mess sometimes.
