C’mon that’s pretty offensive. She has said she uses female pronouns when presenting as female, so you should respect that and not pretend she is a “whatever”. It’s de-humanising.
How would you like it if someone called you by an insulting term, and then you asked them to stop and they refused, saying “I’m just using my freedom of speech, don’t be offended”.
Jeez all this thread proves is we need more education on LGBT issues in society.
She didn't ask me to stop and I wouldn't refuse. It might surprise you but I had never heard of Conchita Wurst or even Eurovision. So I did a search online. Here's what wikipedia says:
"Thomas Neuwirth (born 6 November 1988) is an Austrian singer, recording artist, and drag queen
who is known for HIS
stage persona Conchita Wurst."https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conchita_Wurst
Here's how Britannica defines drag queen:
"Drag queen, a man who dresses in women’s clothes and performs before an audience....dragging involves performance whereby the intent is an undoing of gender norms through doing (or dressing) the part of the opposite sex...The authenticity of femininity is always undermined by a drag queen’s roughness, which often includes a vulgar stage presence and desire to shock. The third aspect of drag is premised on the belief in gender fluidity. Dragging is intended to make this fluidity visible through performance.'https://www.britannica.com/topic/drag-queen
Even on his own website, he is presenting as a man or mostly a man in almost every picture.http://conchitawurst.com/
Still, I wasn't going to assume he prefers being called a man, so that is why I said he or she or whatever pronoun we're supposed to use. If he wants me to call him a she, great, but I'm likely going to slip if I see her and she looks exactly like a man like she does on her own website.
