Little Anthony -- transphobe

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We learned that a Denver Post columnist was fired for saying that there are two genders, female and male.  He is Jon Caldara and argued this:
“What seemed to be the last straw for my column was my insistence that there are only two sexes and my frustration that to be inclusive of the transgendered (even that word isn’t allowed) we must lose our right to free speech.”
Once upon a time, we thought that the world was made up of boys and girls.
No more!
Worse than that, don’t dare putting that on a column.  You will be branded insensitive and whatever other adjective is going around.
It raises a question.  Was Little Anthony an insensitive transphobe when he sang the words to one of pre-PC’s great love songs?
Back in the late 1950s, Little Anthony and The Imperials scored a bit hit on the radio with “Two kinds of people“:
There’s just two kinds of people in the world
Why can’t we fall in love?
Just two kinds of people in the world
They are a boy and girl
Two kinds of people in the world? Sorry Little Anthony — the Denver Post will now refer to your song as more of that 1950s male supremacist stuff that we have to run away from.
Honestly, don’t you miss the days when we could sing about boys and girls and no one got offended?
