Courtneywings

On tonight's episode of RuPaul's Drag Race, it's Cher's family members and the drag queens who love them. We've seen them act, we've seen them sing, we've seen them rap, we've seen them tell jokes, but can they interview like pros? The remaining contestants channeled their inner Katie Courics for a conversation with Chaz Bono and Cher's momma, Georgia Holt. Would they be more Oprah or Chevy Chase?

'RuPaul's Drag Race' to Drop Usage of Transphobic Slur

Logo announced today that it would be dropping usage of the term 'She-Mail', a pun on a slur often used against trans people, after anger from trangender advocates, the HuffPost reports.

Said Logo in a statement:

RupaulWe wanted to thank the community for sharing their concerns around a recent segment and the use of the term 'she-mail' on Drag Race.

Logo has pulled the episode from all of our platforms and that challenge will not appear again. Furthermore, we are removing the 'You've got she-mail' intro from new episodes of the series.

We did not intend to cause any offense, but in retrospect we realize that it was insensitive. We sincerely apologize.

In related news, more than 100 trans women have signed a letter denouncing two recent articles about the show's use of transphobic slurs.

Write the letter's signatories:

We, the undersigned trans women and trans-feminine individuals, are appalled at recent attacks on trans woman journalist Parker Marie Molloy published by Calpernia Addams and Andrea James on the Huffington Post and Boing Boing. Addams’ and James’ hit pieces exhibit a pervasive hostility to young, queer trans women, and indeed any trans woman who is uncomfortable with the use of transmisogynist slurs by cisgender drag queens like RuPaul. They display homophobia, transphobia, ignorance, dishonesty, and hatred throughout.

Addams' and James' articles were published in response to commentary from Advocate writer Parker Marie Molloy over the RuPaul controversy. Said Molloy in a tweet from March 18 (which coincided with an article published the same day): "I f--king hate @RuPaul. Like... there really are very few people I truly hate. He is one of them."

Have you heard the one about the eight drag queens telling jokes to old folks?

Well, get ready, it's a real cincher-buster.

Tonight's double episode was certainly a shake-up, sending an early favorite tumbling to the bottom, twice. Plus, a struggling queen defied expectations and turned out, not one, but TWO solid comedic performances.
