      While we are knocking out offensive language and stereotypes, Oriental is used to identify rugs not a group of people.

      @onahigh23: In America, yes. In Beitain that word has no pejorative connotation.

      Why do many straights find trans people a group they can demean in every possible way & think its funny or acceptable?

      I’m more offended at the portrayal of Tyrannosauruses, as I am one.

      And trust me, it’s hard as fuck to type this statement out with such teeny, tiny hands.

      @Teleny: *”Why do many cis people…” Unfortunately the attitude isn’t exclusive to straight people, it’s far from uncommon among cis LGB+ people as well. Also, by inventing a dichotomy between “straights” on the one side and “trans people” on the other you support the misconception that trans people can’t be straight and vice versa.

      I’m a Gay Brit and although I wouldn’t shop at ASDA (only as its completely god awful, not for any political reason). Maybe we have different outlooks and as a nation, we do like bad taste but I thought the card was really quite funny and let’s face it there really are important issues to get really upset about.

      @urban: As a trans person who also happens to be queer and British, your nationality and orientation are irrelevant. Unless you’re also trans*, you’re not qualified to comment on what discourse is or isn’t acceptable with regards to trans* oppression.

      SORRY TO BREAK YOUR HEARTS GAYS,BUT BIANCA DEL RIO DOESN’T EXIST.ITS A CHARACTER JUST LIKE BOZO OR RUPAUL, BUT CARMEN, JANET , LAVERNE & MYSELF ARE WOMEN.
      AND IF ANY OF YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A MAN, YOU WOULD KNOW HOW TO TREAT A WOMAN .
      THERE ARE NO DEGREES OF WOMANHOOD.
      WOMEN ARE WOMEN, TRANSGENDER OR CISGENDER.
      YOU BEING GAY DOES NOT GIVE YOU A PASS BE VULGAR WITH US.
      I DONT CARE HOW FEM YOU LOOK.
      BODIES ARE NOT GENDER.
      RESPECT ALL WOMEN !!
      STOP MAKING AN ASS OF YOUR TRANSPHOBIC SELVES .
