'The mind of a bigot is like the pupil of an eye. The more light you shine on it, the more it will contract.' Oliver Wendell Holmes
Conchita Wurst has never referred to himself as a woman and nor does he identify as one. He has stated uneqivocably that he is happy being a man in a dress and does not in any way wish to be confused. In his own words "I'm strict about the difference. What I do is performance, it's staged, it's glamour – it's not real life. But for trans people, being born in the wrong body – there's nothing glamorous or easy about that."
It really is time some people learned the difference of the reality and not the fantasy that goes off in their own minds that they see as fact. Adding transphobia to a CV of ignorance says more about the person dishing it out than the person it is aimed at.
Gladly, the majority of people are not affected by such discrimination and hate. Cheap shots and insults, as opposed to true humour and laughing with someone instead of at them, separates the men for the boys in more ways than one it seems!
