Aquaria Called Todrick Hall Out For Misogyny After He Disagreed With Her Opinion That “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Should Be More Gender-Inclusive

August 13, 2020 / Posted by:

RuPaul’s Drag Race guest judge/choreographer/sycophant to the stars, Todrick Hall, got into it with Season 10 winner Aquaria over the inclusion of non-cis-gendered men on Drag Race.

Let’s begin by turning back our time clocks to 2018 (woohoo, I can hug my family!), when still-closeted fracker RuPaul said he probably wouldn’t let trans women who’d gone through gender-affirming surgery compete on his show. He tweeted that it would be like allowing athletes on performance-enhancing drugs to compete in the Olympics. So, by his logic, trans contestant Peppermint was allowed to compete, but only because she hadn’t gotten breast implants yet. Ru later apologized for his comments, but since then, the only trans queen to appear on Drag Race has been half-brained coronavirus truther Gia Gunn on the fourth season of All-Stars. But please note, years earlier, when Gia initially competed on season 6, she was not yet openly trans. So, yeah, in summary, the transgender community doesn’t have much love for Drag Race.

Now, let’s zoom back to 2020 (ugh, must we?). In a recent interview, Aquaria shared her thoughts. She says the recent inclusion of cis-gendered women like Vanessa Williams on the unwatchable Secret Celebrity Drag Race proves that non-cis-men don’t have an “advantage” doing drag, and that “females have been doing drag for as long as anyone else.” via PinkNews:

“Clearly, whatever transformation they’re looking for is still quite there. And whatever ‘unfair advantages’ people perceive women to have are clearly non existent.

“Half the shit I do now is boy drag. So to say that a female-bodied person would excel over me, or that I would excel over them, is nonsense. Everyone should play together!”

She pointed out that “people who have run on Drag Race in the past and continue to compete on it” identify as women.

Well, over on Facebook (remember Facebook? It’s where your Aunt Susan lives), Todrick Hall had some ‘pinions. On his personal FB page, “Hodrick Tall” (ooo, sneaky) called Aquaria’s statements “annoying”, and said if she wants to be more inclusive she should make her own show:

Obviously those shady Internet queens screenshat the comment and tagged Aquaria on Twitter. Here’s what she had to say:

 

In response, poor, sensitive Todrick, who’s previously been accused of fraud and sexual assault, took a page from the book of his mentor RuPaul and announced he was going offline because it’s all too “overwhelming”:

Translation: “I want everyone to feel included, but not everyone should be included. Also, calling me out for that is judgment & hate! Everybody say love!”
