Media Share (The Pink)

The media I chose this time was a sing  called Cut My Hair  by Mounika (feat. Cavetown).

The pink had to do with someone being transgender however for Anderea Long Chu, her experience was much better than most. I love that she was able to celebrate openly with her friends and be happy but many others don’t have that experience. There are many people who have family and friends who don’t approve of those kind of changes so anyone who’s transgender has a hard time and the pain exceeds that of just physical. In the song “Cut My Hair” the person speaking wants to be someone else and is conflicted with their feelings. The song is slow and soft in the same state if the speakers demeanor. They don’t have such a good time with her transition but to give it a start they cut their to start. The difference between the text and the song actually gives me hope that people of all kinds can be happy and excepted for who they are one day.

  1. Nice share, Noelia. Your mention of the relative privilege of Chu and also your description of the sound of the Mounika track are both really good. Can you go further with showing us how the song portrays transgender struggle? How do the lyrics and/or sounds represent the singer’s “not having such a good time with her transition”?
    Also, do you think Chu is “happy and excited” for who she is? I’m not sure…
