A contestant on the upcoming season of ‘Bachelorette’ made a rather rude joke about transgender people on Twitter. He said that his biggest fear for the woman he might meet at the show and his reply was “The chick is actually a dude. ” Many have taken to Twitter to criticise Powers for his “joke”, because transgender women are not men hiding their true self under women’s clothes, they are women whose true self is hidden in a male body. Trans actress Jen Richards took to Twitter to criticise Powers, saying: “Dear Bryce, on behalf of trans women I can assure you: none of us want to date your bland preppy 1980’s teen movie villain rhombus ass.” RuPaul’s Drag Race star Sharon Needles also added: “Bryce from the Bachelorette’s biggest fear is trans women who are attempting to conceal their birth sex. I see why yer single, douche bag.” But the man did not respond to controversy and seems not to bother about it at all.
