Tranny Bunny

By Alex Wiggan

So you like to glam it up from time to time between the weekly application of fake bake and those ritual face cleansing sessions you put yourself through; and who doesn’t? Occasionally you’ll slip on a pair of killer heels, some eyeliner, a little black dress and you’ll head off into town. Now whether this is as a one off situation or it’s a regular occurrence there’s always that worry that some scene queen will stick a label on you that might not be applicable. But regardless of what feels comfortable to you there has always been one individual that has never let the opportunity to dress up like a lady bother him and likewise his gender switching antics have never bothered anyone else either. For some an afternoon decked out in drag can cause a few glares from those not accustomed to the flamboyant lifestyle, but for legendary animated icon Bugs Bunny, it’s never been an issue. If truth be told it could be because he can deal with a putdown faster than Speedy Gonzales can zip past Usain Bolt, so he can stop any would be naysayers in their tracks. Of course it could also be because Bugs has never once worried if anyone was questioning his sexuality even when he was puckering up with another chap. For the record Bugs is a heterosexual hare and as such (and by the nature of his species) he probably thinks about sex twice as often as the next guy. He may have reached the age of seventy-two, but existing solely on a diet of carrots has clearly worked in his favour as he’s a bit of a silver fox (…erm rabbit) that still knows how to work a crowd. Over the years Elmer Fudd has tried desperately to get his hands all over him, Yosemite Sam has brandished his weapon at him on countless occasions and old queen Daffy Duck couldn’t have become more bitter and twisted over Bug’s popularity if he tried. The thing is none of those boys have ever questioned Bugs’ dress sense, even if he looked fruitier than Carmen Miranda clutching a banana in the fresh produce section at Lidl. Oh there may have been the odd comment about him being a ‘screwy rabbit’, but Bugs’ constant repetition of “What’s up doc?” has turned the tables on them, putting any potential judgements that could eventually arise back in the opposite direction before they’ve started. It’s been a simple trick deployed on many occasions but it’s skilfully designed to make the bitchy few think that the problem is with themselves and not Bugs. After all as bunnies go, Bugs has never been shy of flirting with all the boys and leading them on until they have forgotten that he’s never going to follow through on his promiscuous promises. What Bugs has is the ability to be one of the lads whilst flirting with his sexuality to please himself and nobody else. He’s never once bothered about what he’s wearing and often uses it to his own advantage whenever the right situation to be clad in a bra and miniskirt arises. Over the years he may have toned down his need to get dressed up in drag (well he does have a girlfriend nowadays) but at the heart of this rebellious rabbit there is always the need to remain true to himself.

That’s all folks!
