RuPaul is in trouble after using a transphobic slur on his show, “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

During the show contestants had to play a game called “Female or She-male” which involved determining if they were being shown a picture of “a biological woman or a psychological woman” and involved the drag icon using low-pitched voices to determine if they were female and high-pitched voices to determine if they were “she-male”.

The word clearly is hurtful to trans women as fans took to twitter airing their views that she-male was not an OK word.
