RuPaul Says 'Tranny' Police are 'Fringe' People Looking 'to Strengthen Their Identity as Victims': VIDEO
In an interview with Marc Maron, RuPaul speaks out about the word "tranny" and takes on the argument around it, calling it a "lose lose" situation, the HuffPost reports.
When Maron suggests that the transsexual community is upset by the term, Ru replies:
No, it is not the transsexual community. These are fringe people who are looking for story lines to strengthen their identity as victims. That is what we’re dealing with. It’s not the trans community, because most people who are trans have been through hell and high water and they know -- they've looked behind the curtain at Oz and went, 'Oh, this is all a f**king joke. But, some people haven't... 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 f**king hard-ass road.
And that's just a start to a lengthy response.

UPDATE: Read our finale RECAP HERE.
It's become a reality competition cliché to declare every season's contestants the best they've ever seen. Still, it's never been more true than season six of RuPaul's Drag Race. It was a fierce group of 16 queens, (OK, maybe only a dozen or so were truly formidable), but now we're down to our top three. Tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern on Logo a winner will be crowned.
Who will it be? (Well, it better be Bianca, or else I'm going to pounce on my TV like some kind of hero cat.) We've been tracking their sequined successes and shake-and-go wig struggles all season. Take a look back at the highs and lows of each of tonight's final three contestants, AFTER THE JUMP …
Just in time for the Drag Race finale next week, RuPaul and the final four queens have released the music video for “Sissy That Walk” - a video glamorously demonstrating their mastery of the catwalk.
