And let’s face it. We wouldn’t know who the gently caress Carmen Carrera was if she didn’t loving get on Drag Race. Maybe she should take what’s left of her dick and stick it in her mouth and shut the gently caress up.”

There's no way to write that off as a poor taste joke. That is just monstrously transphobic and she can gently caress off forever.

ugh, that's... not great. Pick on Carmen for the fact that she's an rear end in a top hat, not the fact that she's trans.

is Bianca really even relevant anymore? I know she had her comedy tour and that it sold pretty well, but the fact that she hasn't done anything exceptional since her S7 crowning look is honestly expected. (Yeah I know Hurricane Bianca was a thing but it was goddamn terrible).

Yeah let's be real, the rest of the queer world only gives a poo poo about trans people when our goals happen to coincide. The rest of the time we're just weird crossdressers to them the same as we are to cishet people. She still has a huge audience.

Hnghhhhhhh that is monumentally lovely, wow. I'm assuming there has been zero in the vein of an apology.

And as y'all have said I'm sure she's still doing fine, because as cis white gays, we are still cis and white first. Doing any work beyond that to try to be less lovely than our fellow white cis men is optional and frankly, looked down upon. Gross.

At least I feel good about Hurricane Bianca being bad now.

Saying that everyone who likes Bianca doesn't give a poo poo about trans people is a bit of a reach. I am still okay with Bianca (and haven't bought a new avatar since this incident) despite that horrific transphobic "joke" because she apologized to Carmen, who accepted the apology as legitimate. I view the "joke" as a combination of ignorance, desire to defend Ru, and going way too far as insult comic rather than an indicator of her legitimately espousing transphobic beliefs, but you certainly have every right to hate her, say that she is a transphobic person, and not accept her apology.

e: All that said, the small amount of Hurricane Bianca I could stomach was absolutely terrible.

iirc she apologized to Carmen not long after it happened. This was all in like 2014.

Still a bad look. There's tasteless jokes then there's bad tasteless jokes. She could have clapped back at Carmen without bringing her transness into it.

e: still a bianca fan, too, and i'd hate if people assumed I have an issue with trans people because of it. She made an ugly and horrible mistake and fessed up to it. hasn't had any controversy since afaik

and yeah hurricane bianca is awful. worth it for willam and shangie tho and i'll be watching the sequel mostly for them + katya

With how messy RPDR fans can be, especially the younger and straighter ones, I don't blame you lol. The fandom for this show is a mixed bag and like 70% of that bag is terrible these days.

As one of twelve remaining Homestuck fans that watched this happen in fast forward a few years back. That's basically true for every single fanbase that gets too big. The bigger it gets, the louder the lovely part becomes, until one of two things happens: Either the fanbase shrinks back down later and all the lovely people move on and leave the good people to tend to the ashes of the fanbase (Homestuck) or the lovely people drive out the not lovely people and the fanbase consumes itself in an ouroboros of toxicity (Steven Universe)

Drag Race is a bit of a bigger beast than HS or SU though, given that RuPaul is a household name and his show gets primetime on a major TV network aimed at adults, as opposed to a webcomic aimed at Comp Sci nerds and later at teen nerds in general, and a children's cartoon.

At this point I've been attacked for being trans so many times and had queer "allies" just bail on me that I'm just not willing to give that level of trust. People who are willing to look the other way on things like that tend to be the same people who look the other way when you get assaulted in a bathroom.

You have every right to feel that way, and frankly, being that on guard is not only understandable, but an unfortunate necessity in a lot of cases. Personally, I think t's entirely fair to characterize it as a tendency like you just did there, rather than a blanket statement.

Not saying I haven't had plenty of hate thrown my way by "allies" before, but this is a really toxic way to view the world. Not everyone is out to get you, girl.

Next episode's preview is here!

Oooh lord, The Vixen is relishing her role as the pot stirrer/whistleblower and I am honestly here for someone who is not afraid to be an unabashed messy villain. There's a lot of loud personalities this season that makes such compelling television and I think we've had more drama in the first episode and this preview than nearly all of Season 9. Hopefully the strong start to this season is an indicator for good things to come and I'm just loving how all these girls are interacting and having fun/throwing shade at each other.

hahaha watching this intro, i'm like "poor Aquaria". i think she made a huge mistake of exaggerating a situation around the Vixen and now it's blown up into drama city. Miz Cracker's playing it smart by not really engaging until pressed directly.

also thank gently caress we are having mini-challenges again. i love the goofy sort of character-building moments they add to the show.

A large group of RuGirls were portrayed as "sapphic" high school girls with conditions like diabetes, hemophilia, cancer, COPD, etc.

Tumblr is a special place.




There was also a standalone fic with Alaska and Sharon, also featuring Jinkx, Eureka, Sasha, Shea, and diabetes, as referenced above.
