If you haven’t heard of the streamer Nickmercs before, you should get to know him. Nick Kolcheff is one of the few mainstream figures in the streaming world who is willing to speak the absolute truth about transgenderism, despite the unbelievable amount of flak he’s taking for it. Much like J.K. Rowling, Kolcheff is willing to say what others won’t for fear of becoming a public pariah. 

Kolcheff was recently banned on the Amazon-owned streaming platform Twitch for saying the word “tranny” in reference to people who identify as transgender. 

“Banned for using the word “Tranny” on Twitch,” posted Kolcheff last month. “Apparently that’s a derogatory term. That’s on me. Next time I’ll use mental health disorder.” 

Kolcheff later updated his chat about the situation on the streaming platform Kick. According to him, Twitch staff told him that saying “tranny” is just like using the “n-word.” His chat fired back that there really isn’t a comparison between the two words, but as Kolcheff said, he’s just reiterating how the conversation went between him and Twitch. 

In the grand scheme of things, the two words are not, at all, comparable. One is a racial slur that was used as a way to degrade and insult the black community who were actually suffering violence. While the word has definitely been losing some of its edge as it’s been used lately to describe pretty much anyone of every skin color, the “n-word” has a very real history of nefariousness attached to it. 

“Tranny” is a shorter way of describing someone who is “transgender.” 

They are not the same. 

Yet, the radical leftists that have infected corporate culture seem to want to pass off the idea that they are. They want transgender people to be so protected that even saying a word that remotely sounds derogatory is a ban-worthy offense from their platforms. This isn’t remotely right, but as you can see, they’re willing to ban major streamers to make the point. 

The corporate push to enshrine transgenderism as a legitimate cause to be celebrated, as well as a group to be protected, has cost many corporations billions of dollars as well as a massive loss in customer loyalty. Certain brands have begun quietly pulling away from the cause of transgenderism out of fear that they may be the next Bud Light. 

Amazon has drawn its line in the sand with the declaration that anything that sounds remotely like a slur toward the transgender community will result in bans, though how it justifies comparing words like “tranny” to words that aren’t even spoken out loud in public due to the stigma that arose from real-life issues retaining to an entire race is a new frontier in social justice. It would appear that corporations are attempting to artificially elevate the victimhood of transgender people by punishing open speech about them. 

However, historically these two groups are not the same, and perhaps Amazon should further explain how they could compare the two group’s histories before they settle on making these two words equal.
