I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

Manhood is an aspiration. It is a lofty and admirable goal that not every male can see or recognize. The road to manhood bestows respect on the individual male from inside because manhood is measured by the degree of difficulty attempted and achieved. The conditions one faces in confronting the obstacles to survival, in terms of degree of difficulty, may change, making life easier or more difficult, but the end result will always be the same because there are only two options. One either meets the challenges and overcomes them and embraces a true manhood, or one seeks to avoid struggle and pain at any cost and becomes less. It is always as simple as that.

The road to manhood is, and should be, difficult. The struggles undertaken by homosexuals aspiring to manhood insure the development of an internalized control over one's appetites, an awareness of our and our enemies' cultural history, and a clear understanding that one's responsibility to the life and resources of his community takes precedence over all other callings. It requires inner strength and consciousness. Struggle is the foundation of the homosexual manhood, struggle hones us, it defines us, and it makes us men.

·       Mini-Challenge Winner: Alyssa Edwards, Detox, Roxxxy Andrews
·       Main Challenge: Celebrity impersonations in a Match Game-style setting
·       Challenge Winner: Jinkx Monsoon
·       Main Challenge Prize: Custom jewel package from Fierce Drag Jewels
·       Bottom Two: Detox and Lineysha Sparx
·       Lip Synch Song: "Take Me Home" by Cher
·       Eliminated: Lineysha Sparx

The shadow of the double elimination looms large over the remaining contestants as they enter the workroom to review the fresh banalities lipsticked onto the mirror. Roxxxy in particular is feeling the pressure. She thought for sure that a daily dose of Rolaskatox would grant her immortality, but the only recipe for legendary longevity is Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent, darling.

In what is fast becoming a trend, no one expresses regret that the eliminated ladies aren’t there anymore. With two less people around, there’s that much more room to hurl insults, so Jade and Alyssa fill the space with longer, sharper claws. A word to the wise, Ms. Jolie: Alyssa might not have a 26-inch waist, but you might not either in ten years, so maybe keep your body shaming to yourself. The thing these young kids forget about being 22 is that it only lasts a year.

Providing a much-needed break from the antagonism, the jaunty credits sequence jumps in, followed by an equally jaunty SheMail, and then an even jauntier real live RuPaul. She’s dressed like the bellhop in a 1940s farce and comes bearing fittingly zany news: the girls will be customizing fleece garments (referred to here as “cuddlers” because they could afford to buy Snuggies but not to call them by name, apparently) for a step-and-repeat “Who Wore It Best?” challenge.
