He's gay, he calls himself by his stage name when he's in drag. He also uses the word queen with friends. there's no way to really differentiate him from a gay man in drag from a transexual on sight though. except his hair and makeup is over the top. so i'm sure he get's called a trans-something / drag queen/ or queen all the time in public on his way to shows.

i am sure a actual transexual wouldn't want to be called a drag queen either. i think they want to fit into the gender norm, and not be conspicuous. 

one day i'm going to slip this topic into one of our conversationsLOL

I never need to use the word transsexual often on conversation. I don't call lesbians "gay" or "lesbian" or "bisexual" in normal conversation.

People should aim to not identify people by race or sexuality. It is rarely needed.

I don't see anything wrong with what she said. I never knew tranny to be offensive.

Now thinking about it, I do recall lurking a long time ago and a poster mentioning that it's offensive and that they prefer to be called trans(something) depending on something, but it still had the word "tran" in it.

Hypocrisy at it's finest. Oppression is so widespread, it pisses me off when people of color can't connect the damn dots and cease to participate in it. You wanna use the term to demean people? Cool, I just don't wanna see you EVER complaining about people using derogatory terms towards blacks.
How can people be so dense? 


Actually I said, "Tranny is a slur? I'm still gonna use it"

No exclamation point

Precious may not have known that it was a slur. I didn't know that for a long time. I'm not sure why exactly it's offensive though. I wouldn't doubt it's because that may have been the last word some transsexuals have heard before they were beaten/assaulted/etc. much like the N-word. It seems like it's their N-word.
