This is kinda messy considering Chad, Detox and Trinity Taylor competed in drag race. Like sis. 

 

Don't let women in, it's fine. But stop being so dumb Ru.

I mean, it's problematique~ as fuq that ppl are forcing Ru to make women compete in a show about men dressing up as women. It's like, they see those women as.... not women, but merely men dressing up.

 

Plus, do we need another Carmen, Monica, and Peppermint? They're all steaming pile of dookie lmao

whether you support his point or not, i think we can all agree that the way he is going about it and the tweet above are just nasty

This would imply that the criteria for a successful drag superstar is how much they look like women, but that is simply not the case. Otherwise we could just cut the show down to a beauty pageant format and that's that.

I've never watched drag race but I didn't know the point of the show was to pass as a biological woman :huh:

The way he worded it in the interview held some weight. This just sounds hateful :biblio:

Ok he seriously needs to stop now. I agreed with his original interview, but this is becoming offensive.

It‘s about men in womens clothings, make up and wigs doing challenges, runways and lipsyncs.

 

A bioligical woman and a trans woman do have an advantage, so I see his point in not wanting them on the show, which is fine to me.

 

However, the way he‘s acting and talking about it is absolutely unacceptable

No, I think he meant that they all had heavy amount of plastic surgery to make their figures and faces more woman like.

I'm talking about them enhancing their bodies for the purpose of their drag. None of them are trans :rip:

They’re referring to the fact those queens have had many body augmentations.
