Rupaul isn't bothered by the use of the word "tranny?" Inneresting…

While on Marc Maron's WTF podcast, Rupaul gave an argument against the offensiveness of the term "tranny," and in doing so, delivered an incredible and uplifting speech about being whoever you want to be, doing whatever you want, and not looking for happiness in the response of other people:

"Does the word ‘tranny’ bother me? No. I love the word ‘tranny.’…It’s not the transexual community who’s saying that. These are fringe people who are looking for storylines to strengthen their identity as victims. That is what we are dealing with. It’s not the trans community. ‘Cause most people who are trans have been through hell and high water… But some people haven’t and they’ve used their victimhood to create a situation where, ‘No! You look at me! I want you to see me the way you’re supposed to see me!’ You know, if your idea of happiness has to do with someone else changing what they say, what they do, you are in for a fucking hard-ass road… I dance to the beat of a different drummer. I believe everybody — you can be whatever the hell you wanna be, I ain’t stopping you. But don’t you dare tell me what I can do or what I can’t — say or can’t do. It’s just words, like, ‘Yeah, you hurt me!’ Bitch, you need to get stronger. If you’re upset by something I said you have bigger problems than you think.”

Rupaul is so right. Words meant to hurt you or insult you are only as powerful and effective as you yourself make them.

Be who are you are, do what you want, and never make your own internal happiness based on the external response from others.

But what do you guys think about Rupaul's stance on the word "tranny"?
