(based on my thoughts in my FaceBook)

“The fact that I lost many friends here due to my stand on the transgender women vs drag queen issue, really shows how pathetic some transgender women had become when they cling on to their over-the-top cross-dressing gay friends as their salvation.

Instead of making heroes out of them, we must hold them responsible, and they themselves must learn to be accountable for consequences that impact transgender women whenever they visibly impersonate an extremist version of transgender women, that increases public bias and misunderstanding against transgender women, making womanhood all about clothes and turning transgender women’s lives into only gimmicks.

We do not condone slant-eye play. We are against blackface performances. We certainly should discourage drag queens.

After all, why does anyone need to drag for advocacy, let alone comedy? Think about it.”
