Hi Laci. Why do you use the word "tranny" in your video about Haters from 2009? (The one talking about Miley Cyrus, Fred, and Chris Crocker). You really shouldn't be using that word as a cis girl and it's really disappointing for the people who look up to you.

Probably because I was 18 and ignorant.  You are totally right and I sincerely apologize for my mistake.  Before I educated myself about trans issues I had not the slightest inkling of how the word is used to dehumanize nor its place in the cycle of violence against transfolk.  Now I have seen people hurt by it and seen it used as a nasty slur.  Words have power, and "tranny" is not a word for anybody but transfolk themselves to use because only they can reclaim it.  If I knew that was in a video, it would have been long long ago removed.  Consider it banished forever.
