Dear Cis People:
Ru Paul is not Trans*; he is a cross dresser. There’s nothing wrong with that but he’s not transgender. That’s not misgendering him - he says he prefers male pronouns. And I don’t care whether or not he says that the word “tranny” is OK to use, because he’s not transgender. 
He dresses up as a girl. I am a girl. There’s a significant difference between the two.
