Trannies Chow Down on Chick-fil-A

Categories: Wake Up Call

If you follow RuPaul's Drag Race you were probably shocked to learn that contestant Willam (Willam Belli) was recently disqualified for unspecified reasons. But fear not! Willam has used her recent departure from the program to promote "Chow Down (at Chick-fil-A)" a parody of the Wilson Phillips pop-feminist anthem, "Hold On". "Chow Down" takes aim at Chick-fil-A's stance on gay marriage, which triggered several protests around the country.

Chick-fil-A officially denies having a stance on gay marriage and LGBT rights in general. However, Chick-fil-A's founders have a charitable organization called the WinShape Foundation and they have been recently outed as contributing heavily to anti-gay marriage groups as well as organizations like Exodus International which promote "ex-gay" therapy.

I've just got to point out the title of this article. They are not trannies they are DRAG QUEENS. Trannies refers to transsexuals or transgenders, meaning one who is a man trapped in a woman's body or a woman trapped in a mans body. The outside does not fit the inside. Often surgical measures are taken to correct that. That is what a "tranny" is. Where as Drag Queens are entertainers. They are men who transform themselves into fabulous women. They do not typically feel that they are women. They are men who perform as women. And frankly drag queens have the ability to make biological women hate themselves because they are not as pretty as them. I feel this way about Willam.

Well said... but... that last thing you said: " drag queens have the ability to make biological women hate themselves because they are not as pretty as them" I don't feel like that... I'm a woman, and heterosexual and I often go to gay bars (because of my gay friends) and there are transvestites and drag queens, and I love how they look, but still, even though I'm short and thin, I don't envy them, I admire them, but I don't feel less of a woman just because I'm petit and I don't wear make up and my hair is short. ^^

It bugged the hell out of me too, as does any use of the word "tranny." Transgendered men and women face enough problems without being confused with attention-seeking gay men dressed in drag.
