My stomach turned reading black folk say "its offensive? I'm still gonna use 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?

It seems like using it amongst each other would be different, since they wouldn't have any kind of malice behind it ya know? 
yea but it just what I was taught that it just meant tranny = short version of transgender and this was from some transgender fellows

I really can not with the intolerance in this thread.

Who are you hurting by removing offensive language from your vocabulary?

Who are you hurting if you don't?

The answers should be obvious.

Why would people automatically know tranny is a slur? Trannies ain't THAT common everywhere damn. I have no problem not using the term tranny. I also have no problem not seeing any trannies.
