    Anyone else think Tyler Coates looks a bunch like Jesse Tyler Ferguson? Crap, I think I have a type now, and it’s redheads with facial hair.

    Tyler can say so much with those lovely (brown?) eyes.

    HOT TRANNY MESS? as a transgender individual that term is offensive to meand I lost a great deal of respect for queerty for posting such tripe. nice work assholes, tossing around phrases that equate transgender with “mess” wasn’t even funny to me a little.

    @ rhen: did you watch the video. it’s not even remotely poking fun at trans people. it’s poking fun at straight girls who think they are on the in when it comes to gay culture.

    @ Mike128: Yeah, just like when my straight brothers use ‘gay’ as a pejorative and call their friends ‘faggot’ and ‘cocksucker’. They’re not poking fun at gays or saying anything homophobic, just using perfectly neutral words as insults, amirite?

    Bottom line: ‘tr*nny’ is a slur, and even among trans people, there’s fierce debate over which groups get to reclaim it. By virtue of not being trans, cis people (yup, even the gay ones and their fag hags) are out of the running.

    @Nico: personally i would rather the term go away. i am not a car part. and no matter my emotional state it is not for YOU to tell me how i must present and in what manner my gender expression takes.

    this skit reminds me a lot of conversations that i had early in my transition among my friends (gamers mostly)… gamers as a whole are a little trans and homo phobic… not because of being bad people but more because they are so easily roped into socio-cultural phenomenon such as using “fag” “gay” and other phrases as slurs (do not get me started on the trans slurs in the gamer culture)
    most gamers are more then apologetic when you explain why these things are offensive and hurtful, and the vast majority of gamers will after being educated (ugh) turn out to be steadfast allies to us all.

    @nico: i think the whole point of the video is that she thinks her language is cool while he clearly knows it’s passe. her character is parroting the language that’s out there in the media while his response is pretty much a “wtf?”

    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 .
