Tem que balancear, sabe, até porque fica muito caricatural pegar assim, o drogado, a sapatão, o presidiário, eu acho muito pesado, muita dose de realidade pra uma novela só.

lesbi, travestorra ?
Explanation:
no estoy seguro de se refiera (necesariamente) a hombres homosexuales;
"travestorra" tiene la ventaja de ser bastante ambiguo en cuanto al sexo "real" (biologico) de la persona.

olvidemos \"travestorra\"; la sola ventaja que tenia es que tiene el mismo registro de habla que el original.
Pero \"tortillera\" también, y ademas, \"tortillera\" no es ambiguo (o sea, gramaticalmente...) :-)
puntos para Siobhan, y gracias a los Anderson!
