I Fucking Love RuPaul* Comments (0)

RuPaul

RuPaul's Drag Race and Logo (not RuPaul himself) have apologized for offending some trans people with the use of the popular catchphrase “You've got she-mail!” and  have dropped an episode deemed offensive to some transsexuals.

Cue scornful reactions from trans activists angry with the show, who feel it was little more than lip service, and cue scornful reactions from—I would guess—the vast majority of the (primarily) gay men who watch RDR and who are responding along the lines of “lighten up,” or, as Madonna passive-aggressively responded to her “nigga” scandal, by making reference to the “word police.”

 

I have a problem with both reactions; this isn't black-and-white any more than issues of gender identity are for many people.

MolloyFirst, while Parker Marie Molloy's “I fucking hate RuPaul” tweet that predates the show's decision to cease and desist with the trans verbiage was, in my opinion, fairly criticized as unprofessional over her simultaneous reporting for The Advocate (a once and occasionally still journalistically admirable publication that nevertheless once branded Madonna its “Sissy of the Year” ahead of virulently homophobic villains all because she'd clarified that she wasn't a lesbian), there's no accounting for personal taste, so if anyone wants to fucking hate on RuPaul for whatever reason, I get it.

Humiliation...To Go! Comments (0)

Bianca-Del-Rio

A patron at a Bianca Del Rio comedy show thought it would be a great idea to heckle the insult comic and get in her space. He even goes so far as to grab her mic and pat her on the shoulder for emphasis while asserting that she needs to be more respectful of the Latino community (of which she is a part).

I'm never in favor of hecklers, and I think it's really counter-productive to try to get an insult comic to be sensitive. This guy is in the wrong. (Though I'd like to hear what her jokes were leading up to this.) But on a related note, I'll never stop being fascinated by the fact that "I'm a comedian!" seems to erase all boundaries when it comes to outrageous commentary. Context is so powerful it usually trumps content.

Instaglam Slam: Covering Miley Cyrus Comments (0)

Mert-Marcus-Miley-Cyrus-W-nudeThis is not a candid.

For W Magazine's "Social Media" issue, they weren't kidding—they enlisted Ronan Farrow to speak with Miley Cyrus. Miley, unrecognizable on the cover and inside in "instaglam" shots by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, has a lot to say about her station in life:

"You know, I've made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It's fine...I don't give a shit. I'm not Disney, where they have, like, an Asian girl, a black girl, and a white girl to be politically correct, and, like, everyone has bright-colored T-shirts. You know, it's like, I'm not making any kind of statement. Anyone that hates on you is below you, because they're just jealous of what you have."

Miley also scoffs at the type of porn guys love ("those girls don't exist") and, interestingly, identifies with "Blanche" from A Streetcar Named Desire:

"I'm Blanche to a T, complete psycho."

The issue hits the stands on February 8.
