Origin of the term

The expression comes from the Tv Show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, a series, in which men are in a contest to become the next drag queen of the show.

The inconic phrase was said in the final episode of the sixth season, by the participant Bianca Del Rio. It became an instant hit and people referenced it all over the internet.

Spread of the term

We may see it on “funny” workplace stickers, signs or merchandize, influencers put out to make some extra dough with their “brand”.

Since then, it faded out of the common knowledge and is mostly used by the Karens between two meetings with managers, exclaiming to their nemesis quietly; “Not today, Satan”. Urban Dictionary added the first definition on the phrase in 2015.

Drag queens are generally not cross dressers. And the terms are not synonymous. Drag queens are female impersonators and performers. Crossdressers wear clothing of the opposite sex during their everyday lives. As opposed to drag queens who don’t usually wear women’s clothing outside of performing. That’s a very skimmed down version. But maybe do more research! Thanks 🙂
