Logo TV Is Not Here For RuPaul Defending The Use Of The Word “Tranny”

May 26, 2014 / Posted by:

After a bunch of hos complained about the use of the word “shemale” being used on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Logo said that they were killing the use of the word on the show and would never air that word or the word “tranny” again. Well, during Marc Maron’s podcast, the grand dame bitch of Drag Race let it be known that the hit didn’t come from him, because if he had his his way the words “shemale” and “tranny” would long live on Drag Race. RuPaul said that the outrage isn’t coming from the transgender community. It’s coming from a bunch of people outside of the transgender community who are looking for a story “to strengthen their identity as victims.” Ru told those outraged hos that they better not tell him what he can and can’t say. I linked to Ru’s thoughts on “tranny” last week, but here’s a piece of what he said:

“You know, if your idea of happiness has to do with someone else changing what they say, what they do, you are in for a fucking hard-ass road.”

Logo responded to Ru’s defense of “tranny” and told Buzzfeed that Ru doesn’t speak for them and they are against all “anti-trans rhetoric.”

“These comments did not come from Logo. We are committed to supporting the entire LGBT community and will not feature any anti-trans rhetoric on our shows.”

SHOTS FIRED! But Ru’s wig stopped that bullet and he pulled it out and threw it back at Logo when he responded hard on Twitter this weekend. Ru basically said that Logo is still waving to him in the hallways and they’d be crazy not to since his show bought the MacBook Air they typed that statement on.

Trust! @LogoTV hasn’t “distanced” itself from me, not while I’m still payin’ the f%kin’ light bill over there. I’ve been a “tranny” for 32 years. The word “tranny” has never just meant transsexual. #TransvestiteHerstoryLesson I’m more “offended/hurt” by the misuse of the word “community”

The only thing I really have to add to this Logo vs. RuPaul “tranny controversy ” is that a while ago when I used to call Xtinatranny clown,” a guy wrote me what felt like a 20,000 e-mail saying that he dates a lot of transgender women and every single one of them would be disgusted and offended by my use of that derogatory word and I should post an apology and promise to keep that word from spilling out of my fingers. When I hit reply to write a response, I noticed that his email address was something like “ShemaleChaserGeorgia@hotmail.com.” I couldn’t then and I still can’t.

Our commenting rules are pretty simple: If you make any overly offensive comment (racist, bigoted, etc..) or go way off topic when not in an Open Post, your comments will be deleted and you will be banned. If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
