Pop Style Opinionfest: What Is Drag? (Baby, Don’t Hurt Me)

Posted on March 12, 2018


Kittens, we really stuck our feet in it this time!

Before we get to all things drag, we take a moment (or two or three or four) to discuss the state of red carpetry now that awards season is over and in light of the particular disaster that was the Oscars red carpet. From “AskHerMore to #TimesUp, changes have been afoot, but not all of them have resulted in fun or interesting red carpets.

Then, before we get into recapping a fairly crappy episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars, we weigh in on the controversy surrounding Ru’s problematic remarks regarding drag inclusion in an interview with the Guardian. In short, he’s full of it and he’s bad on transgender issues and language, but people also need to let a reality TV show be just that and not a referendum on LGBT identity.

And finally, the aforementioned not-so-great episode:

 

Boy, Bendela really did get the last laugh, didn’t he? It all went downhill FAST.

 

Anyway, it’s all drama and controversy this week! And it’s all HERE!

 

Thank you forever for all your support, kittens. Tell all your neighbors about us!
