Why does Rihanna get a pass for using a homophobic slur?

Rihanna Uses Homophobic Slur

Rihanna Uses Homophobic Slur

Normally I ignore immature juveniles who have no home training. But this I can’t ignore. In response to this post, Rihanna wrote a message on Instagram.com referring to this blogger as a “tranny.” I am not transgender, but transgender people are often the targets of violence, and the term ‘tranny’ is a homophobic slur that incites violence against transgendered people.

As a world famous entertainer whose fans include members of the LGBT community, Rihanna should know better than to use a homophobic slur that offends and insults the LGBT community.

Rihanna should apologize to her young fans who are members of the LGBT community. If Rihanna gets a pass, then every other public figure who maligns an entire group of people — including Paula Deen — should get a pass too. If Rihanna’s use of a homophobic slur is ignored in one instance, then it should be ignored in all instances.

      I didn’t know tranny was a gay slur, I just thought it was a shortened version of transgendered. I need a list of gay slurs because I don’t want to offend anyone.

Try loving, and accepting yourself for who you are; a GAY, Black, Woman! Who happens to be very educated, and successful! I love me, I represent myself, my culture and community in a positive light.

      keeps re reading this an this is dumb I can’t answer that

      *****What you need to keep reading is what you wrote AND (not an) you should never use the word “dumb” again unless you are referring to yourself. I’m clearly not the grammar police, but I’m not sitting around calling people or their questions dumb either. The pot can’t call the kettle black, boo!!!!!

      Why is it dumb?????? Or is that a dumb question, too?
      _____________________________________________________________

      First I wasn’t trying to be funny so you can keep the shade and it’s dumb to me because both parties are white and ni*gger is a term used to demean black people etc so um yeah

      ****You said my question was dumb, but I’m throwing shade because I asked you why. Wowwww!!!! Really?????

      Anyway, I asked the original question because I wanted to get people’s thoughts on it. Sandra said the word ‘tranny’ is indeed a homophobic slur that incites violence against transgendered people. Sandra isn’t transgendered, so I wondering if that still counts as a homophobic slur. That’s why I asked the “dumb” question.

      NAE you would fair MUCH better if you ate at Amy Ruth’s rather than Sylvia’s. I respect her hustle and all but ummmerahhh no. I like Melba’s for soul food as well. Lido is def a good pick too.

      PLEASE – u call EVERYONE either gay or a lesbian or a narcissist (ur favorite thing). NOT ONLY are u the BIGGEST HYPOCRITE, u imply things on this site that whether u know is true or not. U sit in judgement of other (all the damn time) with ur God complex. And don’t let ANYONE disagree or call ur ass out then u block them from stating the truth and pointing out ur “one-sided” behavior. STFU dude….they call each other “trannies” “t-girls” etc, etc. Get ur head outta that ARSE!
