It’s gotta be just because it’s like

The first drag king I’ve seen on mainstream tv.

Hillary Swank doesn’t count don’t even try—

And trans

Are not the same. They have

Crossover but tbh the verbiage

The tags, the SEO boost that comes with

Heard when you’re seen, and you don’t

Get the final word. You’re just naked

Hearing everyone’s reception and

Try not to take it personally.
