"If somebody calls you a green martian, would you be offended by it? No, you wouldn't be. Why? Because you know you're not a green martian. But if you're offended by someone calling you a 'tranny,' it was only because you believe you are a 'tranny!' [laughter.] So then, the solution is: Change your mind about yourself being a 'tranny'."

-- Ru Paul reacting to the whirl of celebrities who've caught flack recently for using the word "tranny" in a Huff Po interview with Michelangelo Signorile.
