The transgender revolution is led by gay men, according to Candy magazine. The magazine’s new gatefold cover (in imitation of Vanity Fair) features the fourteen “transwomen revolutionaries”, and no male lesbians (called “pigs in wigs” in the trans community) need apply.
Enormously over-sized wig owner Janet Mock is elevated – literally, via a ladder- over the other men, wearing an unflattering porno see-through gown that looks like it was created out of shaving cream and a shower curtain (and maybe it was!). Laverne Cox is beneath him, holding the ladder and modeling his (latest) new nose, looking like he may fling Mock over at any moment onto “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alumnae Carmen Carrera, who vamps at their feet coquettishly, covering his money maker (penis! shh!) with the shag of the floor mop he is wearing. Geena Rocero poses nearby with carefully placed sash, looking like he would enjoy a sandwich, and then a private place to vomit it up.
Absent are the pasty heterosexual male Pigs in Wigs. Perhaps they are being saved for an upcoming “Lesbian” edition.

The trans male and gay male and drag queen communities have been roiling for weeks over the issue of whether the gay community word “tranny” is an affectionate term with a long history, or a bigoted slur against transgender male “transwomen”. I frame this as an entirely male issue both because the female (F2T) trans community has largely adopted the “affectionate” usage of this term long ago, and also because the transgender politic is a male-centric men’s rights movement, and as such the female opinion is not addressed or given credence in any of the many dozens of articles and opinion pieces generated on this issue in recent months.
This recent iteration of the “Tranny” controversy stems from the use of the word by RuPaul, a gay black man and community icon with a long-running television show featuring female impersonators on the LOGO television network.
Arguably his biggest critic is a former contestant of that show, Carmen Carrera, a man previously featured on this blog when he “shushed” Katie Couric for asking if Carrera had undergone any surgical modification of his dick and balls (he hasn’t, as he intends to persuade an actual female to transform his sperm into a family for him and his gay male partner). Weeks after shaming the journalist and accusing her of asking overly invasive questions about his reproductive sex organs (which he claimed were too painful to answer), Carrera auctioned off photos of his penis for a high-profile HIV fundraiser. Hypocrisy.
This week Carmen Carrera is back in the gay press defending himself against recent revelations that exposed his own long personal usage of the word “Tranny”, referring to himself and others, during recorded public interviews and appearances.
What is interesting is what is not being reported.
Then again, that’s why you read GenderTrender, correct?
What is not being reported in any of these stories about Carrera’s opinion on what constitutes a slur, is his long public use of the word “Nigga” to refer to Black individuals. It’s not exactly a secret. Carrera has been calling blacks “Niggas” for years, and continues to do so. It is interesting that Carrera calls Gay Black men “bigots” for using the word “Tranny” to refer to themselves, as he (a non-black person) calls these men by the racist slur “Niggas”.
When Carrera refused to explain this outrageous contradiction and ignored requests for response by his followers on social media the fans began posting screen caps of his racist slurs by the dozen on his facebook page and in his twitter feed. Carrera finally responded to the furor on May 31 by deleting many of his racist tweets. He then claimed that the racist tweets were “fakes”. Unfortunately (for him) Carerra had failed to delete all of the “fake” tweets from his account, as they spanned over several years. In fact, some of them still remain. His followers became enraged by his blatant lie, and thousands of enraged commenters reacted to his falsified denial by verbalizing their complaints on his Facebook page.
Eventually Carrera deleted his implausible denial, along with many hundreds of the comments, banning hundreds from his page. As people continue to post comments of protest, he deletes them, and bans them from further comment.
Now, it is likely not a surprise to many that Carmen Carrera is demonstrably racist, a hypocrite, an unintelligent man, and a blatant liar whose opinion on any subject is of questionable credibility. What does surprise some is that the so-called “LGBT” (male) media has decided to white-wash these recent developments entirely from their reportage, even though they are all well aware of them.
Since mainstream LGBT outlets like The Advocate have refused to report on this matter in pieces on Carmen Carrera even as recently as today, I am posting some of Carrera’s many racist tweets- (that he has denied making!)- here, below the fold.
