Brittany Aldean defends ‘beliefs’ amid transphobia

Brittany Aldean — the wife of country star Jason Aldean — is doubling down on a stance considered transphobic.

On Monday, the blonde mother of two shared on her Instagram story a quote originally posted by Republican pundit Robby Starbuck defending her “beliefs” that could arouse “hatred.”

“If you’re silent about your beliefs because you’re afraid someone will be offended, then your beliefs aren’t that important to you, but rather what people think about you,” the quote read in full.

“If you stand up for what is right and true, you will receive both hate and love, but everyone will know what you are fighting for.”

Brittany’s quote comes a week after she sparked an internet war when she publicly thanked her parents “for not changing [her] gender when? [she] went on [her] tomboy phase.”

“I love this girly life🤎✌🏼,” she captioned a video to the tune of Beyoncé’s “Upgrade U,” in which she showed herself completely absorbed.

“Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t either, because you and I wouldn’t make it 😂,” her husband commented in the clip.

His colleagues, however, were less amused.

“You’d think beauty brand celebs would see the positives of including LGBTQ+ people in their posts. But instead we hear someone comparing their ‘tomboy phase’ to someone who wants to switch. Really nice,” Cassadee Pope, 33, tweeted Friday.

Maren Morris, 32, added to pope’s comment“It’s so easy to, like, not be an asshole person? Sell ​​your clip-ins and zip them up, Insurrection Barbie.’

Brittany, 33, responded to the criticism in a since-defunct IG story, accusing Pope of “advocating child genital mutilation”.

“Some parents are so eager to be accepted by society that they are willing to make life-changing decisions for their children who are not old enough to fully understand the consequences of their actions,” she added, calling the “Middle” singer.” Karen Morris” and thanks her for the Barbie comparison.

Pope then took to Instagram to share a photo of herself with a sly grin, which she captioned: “POV: Knowing you got under someone’s skin you don’t like in the first place .”

On Twitter, conservative commentator Candace Owens jumped on the issue, answers in the lead of the singers: ‘It is easier not to castrate your children. But I think everything helps to sell bad records.”

Morris shot back“Oh my god, not you. My Grammy is positively sobbing right now. And why do you always go to ‘castration’ and ‘paedophiles’ to try and stop a discussion? It’s frankly concerning and worth investigating.”

Owens didn’t seem to understand the definition of male castration, which is the removal of a male animal or the testicles of a human, and replied, “If you chop off a penis, that’s the literal definition of castration. So yeah, I always go to English basic definitions .”

“I also said groomers — not pedophiles. Got anything else in mind you’d like to share with the class, sicko?” she added.

According to Oxford Languages, a pedophile is “a person who is sexually attracted to children”, while the definition of grooming is “the action by a pedophile to prepare a child for a meeting, especially through an Internet chat room, with intent to commit a sex crime.”

Pope, Morris and Brittany have yet to discuss their feud on social media.
