And before anyone asks, Yes, I have attempted to research this on my own. This is not a bubba question.I've heard lately that the term "drag queen" is considered to be rude, even by local drag performers. Yet, I've not been able to determine why. Is this something that's unique to the SF Bay Area scene, or is it more widespread than that?I'm curious as to why this term is offensive. There isn't anything in the Wiki here are Susan's about the term itself being considered offensive, and I can't find other sources either. I've just heard recently that it's not the polite term.Thoughts, anyone?
I think it depends on who you're talking to. I doubt Peaches Christ or any of the Sisters would take offense but I would be wary of using it on a performer at Divas.

I pretty much hate all the terms, really.
if they are putting on a show, i prefer they use the term female impersonator. Warrior Princess Mickie
Unless she's a performance artist, yes, I think it would be rude. Cross dresser would be the best term.
