"High Society" doesn't mean high culture

Remember, folks: when you're rich, you can say anything!

CW is premiering its show "High Society" about Tinsley Mortimer. By the looks of the trailer it's going to be a high class affair, with smatterings of "the n-word" and the typical "you look like a tranny" insults. After all, all trans women look ugly as sin, and we couldn't possibly ever look like just another girl in a crowd, right?

I think I'll just file this under "reasons I'm glad to not have cable TV."

Austen, I wrote about this in my "Skip the Makeup" blog. Prepare to have "you look like a tranny" to become the new "that's so gay" or "no homo" on the playground.
