What a week it's been.
So much to talk about.
And so many things we can't talk about.

a few years ago I was discussing fixing up my car with a friend at a cafe. upon stating that "the tranny is so fuckin' busted", a random person in the cafe who overheard my statement started freaking out at me for being an insensitive bigot. I had no clue what they were talking about til I googled "tranny" and dug around a bit. oh, country living and inadvertent ignorance :allears:


I agree with Ru's take on the use of that particular word, but can also see how it bums people out. kind of a can of worms, and I'm not sure how much good this discussion (in general in the world and not just on SA) will do in the end

The more I see of men, the more I like dogs.

Courtnet Act made a very well written and extremely reasonable post on the issue. The response she got was basically a bunch of crazy people calling her a sore loser and a horrible person. I just don't even know. I'm not even saying that I agreed with everything she posted, however, quite a few Rupaul fans are clearly sick people which is absolutely not what she stands for. You can politely disagree with someone especially on an issue like this thats not so black and white. Courtney Act stated her position in a way that I wish Carmen would have been able to convey.

There were 19 Beatdowns originally before The Stylish died out. You can check the FAQ on Willam's tumblr for details on what happened to it after that. There are no more beatdowns at this time :(
She did a few bonus videos on her channel called "Billam's Wheatdown" but other than having Willam in them and being awesome they didn't have much to do with the beatdown.

My wife and I are working backwards through the seasons as well. We're partway through Season 5 and the Untucked episodes make Season 6's look mild as gently caress. Also that double elimination? :vince:

Neither of us can figure out where the drawn out pronunciation of Ivy Winters comes from. Is it from her drag shows?

Ru goes into it during the Reunion episode but it's because of how La Toya pronounced "Edgar Winterrrrrrrrrrrs" at some show once. Even La Toya seemed bewildered by it.

I've done the same (minus untucked), only thing I can say is skip season 1 as its not very good. You can see the germ of the idea it's just cheaply executed and not in a good way.

Can't wait for a UK version.

Season 1 had the vaseline lens filter and about $3.50 as a budget, so it's kind of forgivable.

e: I think the winner of S1 didn't even get the cash prize because they didn't have the cash.

I can if it means not having Jonathan Ross be the presenter.

I mean, he says he's a big fan, but still, doesn't sit right with me.

That being said, anything that is a Jodie Harsh vehicle is good for me

There are screengrabs of several scenes where there would be a ladder or some other "behind the scenes" type tool just hanging out in the shot, broadcast on TV that way.

She probably didn't consider it a slur at the time. It's not news that she is doing a lot of what she has been doing lately for attention but there is a point to the argument buried under all of the whining and poop tossing and it never hung on Carmen's integrity, thank god.

Courtney Act got called out for the same thing, and her response was relatively mature.

ANYWAY. I finished season 5 :woop: Jinkx and Alaska ended up my two favorites, and Alyssa is as cuckoo bananas as I assumed she'd be, but everyone else was either too annoying / bitchy or too forgettable for me. On to season 4!

Sharon likes nazis and the n word. Just google it. There has been recurrent cases of d-list celebrity controversy from the time Sharon came into the public eye. Now people just don't really pay attention to him anymore.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brandon-thomas/sharon-needles-racist-aft_b_1473057.html

There was the situation where she was supposed to perform at the Life Ball in Austria (AIDS fundraiser) and she made the comment to journalists that she was "happy to be in Vienna, the birthplace of Adolf Hitler."

http://www.queerty.com/sharon-needles-banned-from-performing-at-life-ball-after-making-nazi-joke-20130528

and her non apology:
http://www.newnownext.com/sharon-needles-life-ball-interview/05/2013/

There has also been a few accounts of her using the N-word in stage shows, or just in normal taking with fans, there was a picture going around of her and Alaska in blackface wearing confederate flag swimsuits, and reports of Sharon signing autographs with a swastika.

Every time she's called out on it, she either completely dismisses the allegation of racism with "Oh, well things could be so much worse, this is just PRETEND racism", or points at something Ru did way back in the day and says she's being JUST LIKE Ru. (Or just saying that attention is attention even if it's bad, basically the "DANCE, PUPPETS!" defense)
