Got to say that I’m absolutely sickened to read people referring to Conchita Wurst (the winner of Eurovision 2014) as “it”, “that” and “that thing”.
Comments like that speak volumes about the person saying it, and their narrow-minded bigotry.
She’s a bloke in a dress. It’s not exactly a hard concept to grasp, FFS.
I should just clarify that when I said ‘bloke in a dress’ I was referring to the fact that she was described by the commentators as ‘a drag act who takes things very seriously’. Clearly she’s more than just that. My point is that wherever on the gender spectrum she is, she is not an ‘it’ or a ‘thing’. She’s whatever she chooses to be.
