RuPaul explains why he supports "the badass bitch who knows how to get shit done."

http://www.vulture.com/2016/08/rupaul-emmy-nomination-trump-clinton.html

And if you think that you can go to fucking Washington and be rainbows and butterflies the whole time, you're living in a fucking fantasy world. So now, having said that, think about what a female has to do with that: All of those compromises, all of that shit, double it by ten. And you get to understand who this woman is and how powerful, persuasive, brilliant, and resilient she is. Any female executive, anybody who has been put to the side women, blacks, gays for them to succeed in a white-male-dominated culture is an act of brilliance. Of resilience, of grit, of everything you can imagine. So, what do I think of Hillary? I think she's fucking awesome. Is she in bed with Wall Street? Goddammit, I should hope so! You've got to dance with the devil. So which of the horrible people do you want? That's more of the question. Do you want a pompous braggart who doesn't know anything about diplomacy? Or do you want a badass bitch who knows how to get shit done? That's really the question.

3. Is that a correct pronoun usage?

Genuinely asking, I don't know.

4. It's what the article uses, so I went with it.

I assume they asked him which pronoun he would prefer.

7. It is, and I am desperate not to mess it up!

I think trans people are fighting a righteous battle right now, and I so want to be a good ally.

But I am not sure RuPaul is trans. God, I hope that's not a terrible thing to say! I just don't think I understand all the different terminology. I wish there was a good online resource so I could educate myself a bit better. Any trans or more educated people on DU, please point me in the right direction!

10. I THINK RuPaul identifies as a male cross dresser, not transgender.
