10 trans actors who weren’t offered Jared Leto’s role in “Dallas Buyers Club.”
This is violence against our community.
It is social violence, for it reinforces, nay, makes explicit the idea that “trans women are men.” If it does NOT say this, then why are there not more cis women being played by cis men in cinema?
It is economic violence as well, for it takes jobs THAT ARE OURS and gives them instead to cis men.
These are just ten CELEBRATED women who could have played that role, who could have had a shot at OSCAR gold tonight. And he took that from them.
why are there not more cis women being played by cis men in cinema?
White folks who think Lupita shouldn’t win, believe so because they think Black people can inherently play a slave, they believe we are inherently inferior. In their minds being a slave isn’t a stretch, because how hard is it to portray yourself.

Did any kid catch on to this?
I love you, Miss Grotke.
ALSO mark-mark-mark if you are reading this, I want to add you on fbook because you seem like you’re not a complete idiot and I like that. I tried to ask via tumblr fanmail but it wouldn’t let you send you any because apparently I haven”t proved myself as a fan :/
Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight. When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder.
FUCK YEA this makes me ridiculously happy.
I was thinking today about how much we have to forget each other to get on with our lives when we’re apart for this long. I got scared for a second that we might change so much that we won’t want each other anymore when we meet up again.
And then I remembered that we are better than everyone else and everything else and it all just sucks in comparison to how fucking solid this is. The only time I ever worry is when I confuse tired cliches with what we really are. I don’t need to see you everyday or speak to you everyday or see you for months or years. I don’t even need to be going out with you. I just know we’re fucking great together and it doesn’t matter how long its been or what you get up to while I’m away, I will always come back to you and feel completely at home.
I know I will still get confused sometimes and have anxiety about drifting apart and feeling things about other people but none of it matters eventually because the one constant I have in my life is this unconditional and endless fondness for you.
