The Tedious Whine of the Non-Binary Hairy Actress

gender hairy actress

When did people in drag get so whiny? I mean, Ru Paul is not a whiner, neither was Divine. They didn’t position themselves as pushing new beauty standards and Ru Paul still doesn’t to my knowledge. Drag queens play with gender and appearance and gender roles and are having fun and doing theater that is both free wheeling satire and social commentary. They LIKE to offend. They were not pushing for social acceptance. Divine was not screeching that all men had to marry wives that look like her though many do.

So, this new whiny attitude of “please open your mind and accept my hairy face and ass in a dress as beautiful – I am non-binary” is very unbecoming. This “please PLEASE see me as a beauty queen” is not a rebel cry of “fuck you” but rather — “please PLEASE PLEASE fuck me!” (excuse the French but nothing says sex like French). Anyway… since when was queer not a fuck you but a “cry for acceptance”? Didn’t it used to be called “gender fuck”? As in “fuck you — not PLEASE PLEASE LIKE ME!” Whiny!
I was inspired by this silly yet apparently earnest person: Unappealing genderqueer person in dress wants us to change beauty standards

Have some dignity people.
