BryanBoy: I'm 'Pro-Tranny' But Don't Want Them In Miss Universe

Posted: Updated:

It's been "happily ever after" for Jenna Talackova, the transgender contestant who was initially disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada pageant but has since been allowed back.

Talackova found general support in the Twittersphere and the media, even from Bill O'Reilly. But today, fashion blogger BryanBoy tweeted this curious comment:

I'm very much pro-tranny but i don't want them to take part in miss universe.

While it's not clear whether BryanBoy was referring to Talackova and the Miss Universe story, which has been going on for several weeks. Either way, some followers were less than pleased. One tweeted: "@bryanboy and some trannys are probably pro-bryanboy but they don't need you passing judgement."

Also less than pleasing might be the use of the word "tranny." Anyone who watches "Project Runway" knows it gets tossed around the fashion world every now and then, but the term is seen as derogatory by many in and outside the LGBT community.

BryanBoy's comment has not caused mass outrage or condemnation, but it certainly caught our eye. Do you find it offensive?
