Sometimes there's not an app for everything. It appears transphobia is once again an App Store taboo.
Thanks to GLAAD and everyone who called Apple's public relations number yesterday, the technology behemoth has yanked PeekABooTranny from its online store. It is no longer available thanks to the big stink the LGBT community made about the app.
While there wasn't anything specifically horrible about the app itself, it would have properly been labeled as PeekABooDragQueen. Instead, the designers thought it would be cool and hip to use the derogatory name "tranny" instead and market it as a way to shame your friends.
We've had several good conversations about whether or not "tranny" is an offensive term, but the general consensus seems to be that it depends on who says it. If it's a trans person, it's generally considered acceptable. If it's a behemoth computer megacorp, not so much.
Kudos to everyone who helped get the app removed. Together we can move mountains.
