Outrage Over A Cis Hetero Contestant On Drag Race? You Don’t Say…
At some point the queer community is going to have to recognize
That drag race does not speak for everyone.
Perhaps that’s the point.
Maybe drag queens wanted to have their own show—
Who is and isn’t a drag Queen
Is something CIS gay men have decided
They are the sole authority on.
Does it piss me off that
GottMik is included in every single conversation
About allowing cis women or cis men on the show?
Is that what y’all point to as proof?!
There have been trans contestants on every season of drag race
It’s old hat.
To make a big fuss about GottMik
Is not to make a fuss about the future of drag—
It’s to make a fuss about an afab
Who was let into the club.
Now they’re mad because
Cis people are let in— well duh
If you let Kameron Michaels in
You’re gonna have to accept that
Not all men loathe pussy
And not all men live in fear and jealousy.
Who is triggered by letting
Cis people into drag race? Is it
The trans folks lmfao?!
I doubt it.
It will, and always will be
The cis gay men who decided years ago
That they are the only ones who are allowed to be drag queens.
Am I gonna watch this season?
I adore masculinity.
Unless I hear about more extensive rule changes
Like allowing male drag and allowing trans and cis kings
In royalty-only spaces —
I will always be unable to give a shit.
My problem is
I’ve got the same issue but in reverse —
I get dysphoric
Watching these men hate themselves,
Tear eachother to shreds
While wearing dresses and clothes
I was forced to wear as a kid.
When will it be time
For the queer community
To celebrate masculinity
As something other than a six pack
And a thick dick
