Not really a Confession in the traditional sense

But a bit of commentary. As a cis lesbian I feel drag kings, lesbians, non binary folx 2 spirited people in the indigenous communities & those in the trans community are being thrown under the bus sort sort of speak what with the stuff regarding drag shows with drag queens, why is it always about drag queens? Where are the drag kings? The LGBTQ2s community is not just drag queens...... anyways my little commentary.

As a non-woman, I demand women's rights for myself and all the other non-women out there.

I love the drag art form, but it's also mostly able-bodied cis men who are emulating exaggerations of traditional femininity. You hardly ever see trans drag queens or disabled drag queens. You might get a plus sized one but that's it. I'm a cis bisexual female writing this. I do appreciate the art form and I understand the camp/satire element (which I love), but also sometimes don't like feeling mansplained about what it means to be female, and don't like how common it is for them to use "b*tch", "c*nt", etc so freely. When they take off the drag, they are still mostly men saying that. Even if they are gay, they are still men. Those words are for us! Cis and trans women! They are our words! Why can't drag queens stick to "queen". "Hey queen" instead of "Hey b*tch", etc. I love Ru Paul but wow is it an empire now. An empire of mostly cis men.

Let me get this straight…you’re offended because drag kings aren’t getting vilified enough? I don’t think you understand what that expression (being thrown under the bus) means. But here’s an idea you might try - get a bunch of drag kings together to read stories to kids! Make sure you get lots of publicity. I’m sure if you try hard enough you’ll get the abuse you seek.
if drag kings

want to catch up with drag queens they're going to have to pay their dues, lip synching to old blues records on Tuesday nights in gay bars for a decade.
