Furor Over Local Drag Queen’s Front Page Newspaper Appearance Reminds Us People Still Reading Newspapers

THE SHOT — Maci Dixx, a drag queen in Washington State performing at a college drag contest, as she appeared on the front page of the McClatchy-owned Tri-City Herald, which caused readers to write in questioning whether the editors have a “tabloid mentality.” In a poll asking readers whether the newspaper should print photos of drag shows (!), so far 59% say yes.

      The numbers are probably not reflective of the small town they’re in… Instead, it’s been the subject of at least two or three “get out the vote” drives from websites (like this one).

      All told, though, it’s nice to see we’ve won one of these e-ballot-stuffing efforts!

      @stuffer: You probably shouldn’t say that out loud, since the other side could just as easily take that idea + run with it.

      Drag queens are vile. They do not represent me as a gay person.

      One of the most tragic things I’ve seen in the gay clubs is gay men admiring ugly drag queens with poor miming skills.

      Go away, drags. Take your hideousness elsewhere.

      One of the most tragic things I’ve seen is a gay man thinking that he’s the only gay man on earth and that every other gay should be just like him. Seriously, get the stick out of your ass and quit being judgmental.
