The world’s second most famous cross-dresser behind Dame Edna writes on his official website, “If put under the microscope of a British documentary, there are a ton of things that the ‘normal’ American family does on an everyday basis that would seem strange or cruel to viewers. That doesn’t make what Michael is doing right or wrong, it just means that we are all odd to somebody. I’ve never met anyone who I didn’t think was a weirdo, but that doesn’t make them bad (shum’ on, you know it!)… It just makes them human. Blanket’s daddy won my heart when he showed so much vulnerability by recalling the horror of abuse by his own father. unfortunately, MJJ lost credibility by lying about the full service he’s had performed on his mug, and as Judge Judy says ‘if you lie about one thing, I can’t believe anything else you say’. VERDICT: He’s a freak, but I love him. I love freaks!”
