To be fair, Carmen isn't obligated to be the same person she was when she was on the show. She's been changing infront of our eyes, & ever since she became an activist for Trans rights, her opinions on a lot of the content of the show has changed. (for the better in my opinion) & she's very open about that.

A lot of people think it's hypocritical of her, but progression is progression. :)

Well, i don't think she's hypocritical necessarily, but it's not like RPDR just started using She-Mail this season. And perhaps the criticism has always been there, except that now the Trans* community is becoming more and more prominent, they are being noticed. Who knows, really? But again, there's so many drag lingo that could be offensive and i wonder why She-Mail is the only one targeted out of all the stuff that is said on the show.

This is one of the few times that sensitivity can blow it. IF trans community had any problem with it previously they could have voiced it earlier. This is season 6 for christ sake. This sounds like complaining for the sake of complaining.

Wont' let me edit so I'll add: Re-reading what I wrote it comes off as harsh. What I meant was it's been 6 seasons that she-mail has been being used, I find it dumb that it's only being brought up as a problem now. Seems like an attention seeking complaint to me imo.

I also agree with the overall sentiment going around about the situation right now: This is Rupaul's DRAG race, not Ruapuls Transgender race. If a nature born woman can't be on the show then neither should a transgender. Want to be accepted as a woman then you should be classified as one which means no go for the show. Shouldn't be able to have your cake and eat it too *hides behind couch before flame torches come out*

Well women can be drag performers too. It's just that none has appeared on the show thus far.

True but judging by the pit crew, I somehow doubt that women drag performers will ever happen lol. I just wish the show would go back to its original intent: good ol' fashioned drag. It seems to have started to become about everything else but drag.

It has been brought up before. It's been an issue in the trans community for a while, it just took Carmen, a more popular & mainstream trans woman to bring it up for Logo & the rest of the world to finally listen.

Ya'll, THIS is the LSFYL that NO ONE should've been sent home for! Trinity and Adore were sensational.

I feel like Trinity's time was coming though. She's been slacking, but damn her lip syncs are on point.

Who's everyone's top 3?
Mine are Adore, Bianca & Courtney

I'm not actually sure when the show comes on, so *SPOILER ALERT*

I was shocked Jocelyn was not in the bottom two. Didn't think Trinity deserved to go this time, but I'm glad Adore stayed. My top 3: Adore, Bianca, & Ben.

I have to admit, i've been waiting for Trinity to sashay for a long time now BUT she's been growing on me so much the past two weeks and this was definitely not the week for her to go home. Aside from the 'Chad' thing, i thought she did really well for the challenge and her runway look was amazing! Joslyn should've been in the bottom with Adore, IMO. Trinity was so gracious about being eliminated though. She's such a sweetheart. Wish she didn't keep making up excuses for herself because when she truly gives it all for her challenge, she is awesome!

Also, at the beginning of the season I couldn't stand Bianca Del Rio but I've grown to love her so much <3 She has such a mothering touch to her.

Holy shit, whoever that senior that yelled "So tell us a joke" in the audience I hope he got his ass booted. Grumpy asshole. (I missed a few episodes and catching up so bare with me lol) I felt so embarrassed for BDLC. :( And I felt even worse that none of the judges apologized for it. And so glad Michelle and Ru called Laganja out on her trying too hard. Everyone's over it and glad someone voiced it. Go Ru go!

After this season, they will not be using the term for segment due to many people in the trans community being offended. Specifically Carmen Carrerra, she brought it up to the Network & they decided it was a good idea to keep using the term.

Many many people are upset about this change.
Watching episode 9 and it looks like they've already edited them out so my guess it's out as of now. They replaced it with the rupaul's drag race image and edited out the audio.
