Why is it that when people who use a word like 'tranny' to describe transgender people are told, by a transgender person, that the word is derogatory and offensive towards transgender people, they rally and insist that it isn't?
Then, while claiming in their defense there are gay people who use the term as well, they miss the point that no gay person who respects a transgender person will call them 'a tranny'. Yes, there are bigots in the LGBT collective as well.
...then comes the obligatory claim that they 'have loads of trans friends' who clearly don't mind being called 'trannies'.
Have you ever ASKED them?
