Lette’s Respect Issues Statement of Support for Potential Transgender Miss Juggalette Pageant Contestant

This is sure to get a conversation started within the juggalo world. No matter which side you fall on in this discussion, just be respectful to anyone’s opinions.

With that being said, Lette’s Respect, who helps organize and run the Miss Juggalette Pageant has published a statement of support for a potential transgender contestant.

This year, Alexis Macknight has decided to sign up to take part in the 2016 Miss Juggalette Pageant. You can read the full statement of support from Lette’s Respect below.

We here at Lette’s Respect celebrate beautiful “bearded” ladies and unconventional beauty that defies all norms and pushes the boundaries of what is acceptable. It is time to celebrate freedom of expression in all forms, without limitation or exception. Everyone is welcome, one universal family, free 2 be! That is why we believe that this year’s 2016 Miss Juggalette Pageant, a celebration of wild women, reinventing standards of beauty with no bounds with that ever-so-subtle touch of Detroit class, is ready for the amazing, incredible, death-defying presence of a TRUE circus icon–May we present our pledge to support and honor our SISTER, Miss Alexis Macknight aka Burger, in her choice to enlist in the running for the title of the Juggalette Queen 2016! We believe Alexis has the power to take the pageant up to a new level of consciousness and thought. If we are to continue forward in creating a space for universal family without limitation (and lots of laughs and clowning along the way), we can think of no other person to better carry the torch, shed the Carnival Light in the Dark, and move us forward. For that, she gets all our RESPECT in the world. #lettesrespect2016 #realjuggalofamily #allshapessizescolorsandgenders #deezycandar

    Not an issue. Not a problem. Some one wants to join the festivities and participate? Great. The gathering is lots of fun, especially when you do all the little side things like contests and such. As long as the focus of the contest does not become a political agenda and the focus remains the fun and wildness that is the gathering. The focus on what is different about people leads to separation. If it is not made into an issue, it won’t be an issue.

    I’m all for it, sucks that these things have to be announced imo though. I consider transgender on the same level as the rest of us so what makes them special? I give much props to all the ladies in this pageant equally.

    consider this: what would you think if you met a juggalette at the gathering and hung out with her all day and kissing on her then that night had some drinks, started messing around, and found out the hard way that it was a man?

    Imagine you’re are transgendered: you are interested in a guy. Are you going to tell them at the beginning that you are transgendered, or are you gonna have them find out the hard way? That’s an extremely embarrassing situation to put one’s self, and the vast majority of transgendered people will make it known early on.

    Burger is a cool person. Never faked the funk.

    Male….female….
    regardless of your affiliation it takes balls to enter a competition .

    I stopped going to gatherING competitions long ago. Mainly cause I’m too fucked up/or in recovery mode.

    But I support anyones right to enter any competition.

    Not knowing Burger, I will go with Frog’s knowledge of the person. “Burger is a cool person”. Until that is proven otherwise, I will have no problem.
    If you like a person at the pageant, then you cheer for them. If you don’t, then don’t cheer for them. It’s how the competition works.
    If I find that Burger best represents what being a juggalette is about, I will be cheering. If someone else fits it better, I will cheer for the other person instead.
    It’s that simple.

    LONG LIVE THE BEARDED LADY!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow. As time rolls on and people like Sketchez hate on, I find a ton of value in the haters. Of course! A lot of emotion is being poured out and this is just GREAT stuff. I’m so proud of Alexis for inspiring this conversation. It’s a microcosm, really. It raises a lot of questions about identity and the creation/cultivation of self. I think the biggest question raised involves choice. I truly believe we choose our identities and can be whoever or whatever we want, especially in magical realm of the Dark Carnival, for those who identify as part of the Juggalo Family. In her brave attempt to break the mold and shatter our concepts of gender binaries and societal “norms,” I am so glad and grateful that Alexis has held space for us all, so that we can dwell on these concepts. I can’t wait for her performance, and I am so humbled to know that she is raising awareness to make our clowny subculture family more inclusive and sensitive to the needs and beauty of all our fellow “circus freaks.” Sincerely, The Fortune Teller

    Damn this shit is crazy. Look at everyone fighting. I personally think its a little out of my comfort zone, so I am going to not watch the competition. But I hope other people do. Nothing wrong with it, but i’ll just go see one of the many other things at the gathering. I really wish they wouldn’t have said anything and it would have been just another juggalette competing.

    wow this turned out JUST like any other time a minorty group asks for acceptance…..our Opinion was asked….and any opinions that didnt fit well with their agenda….they are now “Haters”…”Trump supporters”…jelious”….bullies”….why cant people disagree and it not turn into some political agenda where one party plays the victim and the other the monster…MOST (other than 1 fuckass threating to kill people)….have NO PROBLEM with Alexis, or Burger…or whoever she feels like she is, being TRANS…..GAY…..JUGGALO/LETTE…..be all the fuck as fabulous as you want…get all the pussy you want…Be YOU….
    The boat is rocked when you ask the opinion out of a group for acceptance and support, in something you KNOW is gunna ruffle feathers…..and soon as it aint smooth sailing, the bullshit..”Haters” shit starts……
    Now the Lette’s Respect movement can choose this venue to flex their equality fight, and possibly ruin everything its pushed for in this pageant….or just choose your battles more wisely…instead of kickin in the door 3 weeks before saying….here the fuck we are and you got to like it cause we run this shit now and we intent on abusing our power in a show of “Equality”

    Look. No one is saying anything is wrong with gay ppl. It’s just that this is a stupid publicity stunt. And to be totally honest, every since violent j started throwing around the term juggalo/Lette to lump there audience into one minority the entire group has become mostly ignorant freaks. Having a jug galette peagent at a music festival is dumb anyhow. Sorry to be negative but this is stupid as fuck. But yea let him in the peagent it’s already gay as fuck anyhow. I hate the term juggalo because it lumps in down ass ninjaz with fat fucking slobs, white trash crack heads and wanna be gangsters. I have Always supported ICP/ PSY but never really liked juggalo culture. And for the record I have spent more money on PSY music and merch and most of these sorry fucks claiming juggalo family. Entire scene is gay as fuck. Still some cool ninjaz from the old skool but most have moved on by now. Btw ICP makes music for 3rd graders now not adults. Listen to death pop! Luckily Young wicked saved missing link from being too childish.

    not sure how i feel about this one, i mean go equal rights and all that. but isn’t there a mr juggalo pageant as well?
    it kinda does feel like a cop out that if miss burger does still have all his/her man bits. if there is no aforementioned man bits(didn’t read the explosion of posts, likely its all shit flinging from SJW morons and ‘bigots’ (lol)) then have at it. but it seems like a stretch.
    personally i think this is the wrong platform to use in your fight, but what do i care if you fuck up a pagaent you worked so hard to make respectable wow a chick? then why should i care, im not even gunna be at the gathering. and i aint gunna watch the pagaent on youtube. have at it.

    If the biggest question truly involves choice as Rachel says she believes, maybe the Miss Juggalette Pageant won’t slut shame potential contestants this year. Want to juggle fire, knit a sweater, shake your mangina, or turn your cunt into a tangerine cannon? This is the contest for you! MMFWCL

    Ok. I say let anyone participate. Even as in the Facebook posts where Malissa Pebbles Schmalz wanted to participate and was told she could not strip. Why not? What is allowed and what is not? Once we start drawing lines then the whole argument starts falling apart. The Lette’s Respect movement opened it up so that it was not a requirement to be naked to participate as Ron Jeremy had made it. That was awesome. But it seems it went and started drawing lines on what was allowed and what wasn’t, just as Ron Jeremy did. It has become similar to the thing it replaced. Allow it all – Strippers, LGBTQ+, Cis Females, Straight guys that just want to dress like a girl, anyone. Otherwise it becomes hypocritical. If the case is that some things are not allowed this year again, then I am withdrawing my support for the Miss Juggalette Pageant and ask others to do the same by not showing up to it.

    Then that is good.
    I was going from that girl’s facebook post. She had said “i was in the competition last year. I wanted to do a pole dance routine. I was told by Rachael, who i believe is the founder of lettes respect, that i cannot be in the contest. She told me to do it in the wet tshirt or lingerie contest. I was pretty offended. I did not want to complete in those competitions or i would of. She was under the impression that i was going to strip. I was not….i just wanted to show off some pole tricks… but even if i was goi g to strip, why cant i? Why cant that be part of my talent?”
    But if anything goes and people can do what they want, then I fully support that.

    Like I said on the Forum Ima go check this out to show support but to also stop any idiots from doing hateful stupid things because they dont agree with it or just want to fuck shit up. Also if Frog says Burger is cool then thats more then enough for me to respect them. Frog is one real motherfucker anyone who has met him will agree.

    Get this wack social justice warrior garbage out of the gathering. First off the juggalette patent has been females for 16 years. And as in females I mean ones with a neden and titties. Not balls and dick. The LGBT are quit to talk abou tolerance then when they don’t get their way they throw a bitch fit. How tolerant are you to come into a pagent that has been females and where heterosexual males enjoy them and force your beliefs on the juggalos then start calling them bigots because they don’t wanna see penis cake. You are the in
    Tolerant bigot by not accepting the majority rule. Hey juggalolgbt evwr heard of the fag song by soopavillians? Keep that LGBT shut for politics and the outside world.
