what did trin do!!
girl….buckle the fuck up.
i watched a recording of this and i wanted to link it here but can’t seem to be able to find it. if anyone has links, i’d appreciate if you reblogged this with them so that people can see.
she was on instagram live and somebody asked her opinion on bio queens and whether she thinks they should be allowed on drag race. she said no and proceeded to ramble about how in her opinion drag & drag race is about “transformation from male to female” (…) and no matter how talented a bio/faux queen could be, they wouldn’t have this type of transformation and thus shouldn’t be allowed on drag race. that’s bullshit. not HORRIBLY problematic, but absolute bullshit nonetheless.
but then it got so much worse.
either someone on the live stream mentioned peppermint or she felt the need to mention her to somehow “justify” her being on drag race to back up her previous bullshit arguments, but this bitch started talking abt how it was “okay” for peppermint to be on rpdr “because she didn’t have boobs yet at the moment they were filming” and “because she dressed like a man”. my fucking jaw fell OPEN. way to completely nullify all of your apparent growth throughout the season and reveal yourself to be transphobic trash. i couldn’t watch any further so idk what anyone said to her after that and what she said in response, it was disgusting.
(as someone cleverly pointed out, if drag is about transformation why did you get yourself a “feminine” body through plastic surgery? kinda ruins the fantasy doesn’t it? she sure as hell looks more “feminine” now than me and most of my female friends from the waist down. courtney conquer wrote an amazing instagram post about this, check that & her work out, she’s a total badass.)
that’s what happened but then it got EVEN WORSE when she completely refused to listen to anyone who pointed out she was wrong, no matter how politely. instead of listening and trying to understand why her fans were upset, she’s out there on twitter liking sassy responses from her sheep headed stans to said fans. very mature, trinity:
(i’ll be sure to do just that, as my queen doesn’t invalidate anyone’s drag, isn’t transphobic garbage and is just a nice person all around who doesn’t support bullying and shit).
so there’s that.
moral of this post:
- i love our top 3 this season - peppermint, shea coulee and sasha velour
- it’s so cool that none of our top 3 is a cis white man isn’t it?
- black trans women such as peppermint started drag and it was never meant to be about cis white men
- peppermint rocks the fuck out of her lil blonde buzz cut and looks cute as hell with short hair
