    holy fuck how transphobic is Fran Lebowitz, she pisses me off, I hope she's educated her transphobic ass these last 6 years! Candy is a woman and always has been, easy as that!

    Candy is a woman! She's more girl than me and I'm a girl. You can see it by the way she moved and talked. Absolutely beautiful

    Candy actually was a talented actress.  Check her out in Some of My Best Friends Are (1971).  She showed great comedic & dramatic talent in that film.  I am a fan.  God bless her.

    "She wanted to be Kim Novak" but she never was. Her only talent was to be a drag Q at the factory. The last phrase implied she wanted to have power for revenge. Fat chance CD you never reached that point.

    the last sentence she says is why i have such a hard time relating to the TSs from the drag side. They can be so full of themselves.

    I bought it too.. but i'm italian and unfortunatelly there arent subs nor italian neither eglish. I discovered Fran Lebowitz (or Lesbowitz...joke) in this movie, I like her but I obviously disagree with her opinion about transgender people. I suppose she's a feminist so it explains it all..but I notice she's respectful..she call candy a SHE not a HE...you know some feminists think that a woman is the result of what she lived in her life and childhood..so a transsexual it's not a woman.

    I need to watch it and i'm broke!Help anyone???!!!

    i meant "a man who will never be a woman". We're different, we're not biological females but togheter we can fight for us all!
  • krisagui 2012-05-05 18:20:34
    These radfeminist hadn't understand anything! I can be a feminist even being a male, and i can even be a woman. It's different to be raised and born a girl or a boy i don't have a doubt about it, but the difference doesn't make you a man you will never be a woman! Jayne County I LOVE YOU..you said it well and you are sweet!
  • Merkwürdigliebe 2012-03-26 03:21:15
    Man she was stunning! You'd never notice she was Transexual if you met her for the first time.
  • Adrian Mills 2012-03-12 15:54:41
    God, that fucking BITCH at the beginning of the clip. You tell 'em, Jayne!

    Candy came from out on the Island In the back room she was everybody's darlin' But she never lost her head Even when she was givin' head

    Somehow I'm amazed by Candy because in the face of most transexuals you can usually still tell they're men underneath it all. But Candy was flawless and radiant and looked like the real deal, I think I'm in love. RIP.
