Ranking the House Down: Who Will and Should Win Rupaul’s Drag Race (Season Six)

As you may or may not know from following Ranking the House Down the last couple months, I have been gunning for Bianca and Adore to make the top two (there really is no top three this year, let us be serious here). With that in mind, it would be a real snore to rank the final three queens of season six, given all that this reviewer has argued in their favour already. Instead, let us recap the whole season, and have our own little “countdown to the crown.”

Ranking the House Down: Our Squirrel Friends of Rupaul’s Drag Race, Season Six - Taking a Look at the Top Six

We are in the top six!!! This is where the competition becomes an exercise of splitting hairs because from this moment onward there is not a queen who we do not like. Some legendary queens have departed from their respective seasons after making it to the top six: Jessica Wild, Shangela Laquifa Wadley, Willam, and Alyssa Edwards (on yeah, and uh, Jade Sotormayer).

5 Things It's Important To Consider Regarding Transphobia and 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

Recently, Rupaul Charles and the producers of Drag Race released a public statement in response to accusations of transphobia. It is worth noting that while Ru and Co. explain that they intend to tackle issues relating to transgender rights in the future of this show, they did not apologize to the transgender community for their offensive actions in the “Female or She-Male” mini-challenge.

Ranking the House Down: Our Squirrel Friends in the Snatch Game (Drag Race Recap #4)

Snatch Game is the major event in every season of Rupaul’s Drag Race that clearly divides the fiercely talented queens from the basic amateurs. As Jinkx Monsoon once said of the event, “Snatch Game challenges your improv skills, your wit, and your impersonation skills. Without these three skills, a drag queen may as well not call herself a drag queen.

It’s Never Too Late to Rupologize: Transphobia and Rupaul’s Drag Race Recap #3

This week on Rupaul’s Drag Race our squirrel friends competed in a mini-challenge titled “Female or She-Male”, and in case you have not yet seen the episode the game was as vile and flagrantly trans-phobic as you can imagine. The squirrel friends of season six had to look at close-up photographs of various celebrities and guess whether the pictures were of “biological” women or “psychological” women.
