I don’t know when or how I’m gonna get over the bullshit Rupaul pulled tonight. Watching the Vixen get attacked tonight for standing up for herself and her truth hurt. Watching her walk out hurt. Watching Asia O'Hara cry while speaking the truth hurt. And watching Rupaul yell that some people can’t be helped hurt the most.
I don’t understand how this show can let queens like Mayhem and Alexis Michelle question people not being “honest” about their outfits but condemn the Vixen for telling the truth. I don’t understand how they can encourage people to stand up for themselves and then turn around and destroy the Vixen for doing the same. I don’t understand why the show chooses to protect some people no matter what and demonize others in need.
This show helped me find my confidence as a young woman but tonight I felt gut punched by the exploitation of the queens. I understand good reality TV but this was just mean. Bringing up Blair’s Trauma, making Dusty explain conversion therapy, Embarrassing Kameron for not having the other queens support, and worst, blaming the Vixen for her truths all while hocking “Miss Vanjie” snapchat filters and “Battle on the Catwalk” tickets felt wrong. For the first time watching this show, I felt worse about myself not empowered. After this and Willam’s confessions about season 4, I’m starting to lose faith not in the community or in the queens but in this show. Asia O'Hara was right when she said our job is to help each other out and listen for cries for help, not just give up on people. As we end pride month, I hope we all model more like Asia O'Hara and less like Rupaul which breaks my heart.
To quote Ray Holt from Brooklyn 99 “I put all my energy towards rising to a rank where I could make a difference. Well, I’m there now, and I realize that if I don’t back you up on this, I would be betraying the very thing that I worked so hard for…” I hope Rupaul comes around and supports the Vixen, God knows I’ll support the Vixen forever.
You all know by now that I’d give my life for Terroriser, but can I also just let it be known that Ms Vixen is the cutest little fucker ever? Like I normally don’t crush on a couple, but damn these two are adorable
I’m losing my mind over this episode. Should have been a double shantay for that STELLAR lip sync and Eureka should have been the one to go. Her hypocrisy and actions are not acceptable in 2018. The vixen was on to some reeeall shady tea. I’m over Eureka, she went home once she needs to go again. #girlbye
