Chloe Sevigny: I got reamed out by The Advocate the other day for saying “tranny.” I guess I referred to [my character] as a “tranny” a couple of times and apparently, that’s a no-no in the community. I felt really bad! Nobody had ever told me. Did you know that?

Huffington Post: I just know that now because I think Blake Lively also said that recently

Chloe Sevigny: Oh, so there’s been some uproar. Reee-donkulous. You can’t say anything anymore.

Chloe Sevigny is the latest celeb to get spanked (not in a good way) by the Political Correctness Police. Chloe will be playing an Irish transgender assassin in a new miniseries and referred to her character as a “tranny.” However, “tranny” is not a word that the transgender community would like to be known by — although lots of otherwise queer-rights supporting folks, like, Chloe, didn’t get the memo. In fact, I didn’t get the memo until recently, either. You live, you learn.

So, I wish that once Chloe learned that the word she used is not preferred, her attitude had been more gracious and respectful. One hundred years ago, she might have been called a “broad” or a “dame” and some dude might be calling her annoyed response “reee-donkulous”! [Huffington Post]
