This entry has been marked "mature"

It may have content that may deal with mature themes (such as those of a sexual nature), or content that may be triggering and offensive.

a slang term that was traditionally aimed at transvestites, cross-dressers and Drag Queens, but by association because slang for transsexuals and other transgender individuals and is now considered to be an offensive slur in the transgender community.

However, the term still has prominence – although waning – in cisgender, cross-dressing/transvestite circles (such as those involving Drag Queens), one particular example is the San Francisco club Trannyshack. This in itself is problematic as people often confuse Drag performance with transgender identity.

Despite this, some transgender individuals still use the word and have attempted to reclaim it.
