so there’s gonna be a film called stonewall coming out. as you can probably guess it’s about the stonewall riots. it’s not a documentary it’s more like a fictionalized telling of it. it sounded pretty cool so i looked up the cast members and:

look at all that mayonnaise…. 

of course. how did i know this would happen?

Oh no, it gets WAY worse. 

One: Marsha P Johnson isn’t even listed in the cast list on the main imdb page – you have to click Full Cast and Crew to see her (”Woman with a poodle” has a higher billing), AND she’s played by a cis man, AND there’s only one person of color on that first page – Kwasi Songui playing “Big Daddy”

Two: Just look at this trash bullshit right here:

Not a single trans person on the bill (at least none that I recognize).

Of course a riot started by trans women of color is going to be whitewashed for all time into an uprising of young white cis men. Of course it is. You can bet your ass that I won’t be seeing this tripe.

I can’t wait to see next year’s film about the Compton’s Cafeteria riots starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, and Ashton Kutcher …

As the kid of a doctor and a biologist, let me tell you something that just miiight go over some people’s (*cough cough terfs*) heads:

– XX and XY (or any other combinations – there are others) chromosomes are a thing and are medically important

– genitals are a thing and are medically important

– horomones are a thing and are medically important

– the idea of a “biological sex” is still completely unnecessary. If you have XX chromosomes, you can tell your doctor that. If you have a penis, you can tell your doctor that. If you have high levels of both estrogen/testosterone, your doctor should probably know that already but I guess if you go to a new one you can tell them that. There is no situation in which one has to say “I am biologically male/female”

^say it a little louder for the transphobic educators who tried to tell students otherwise

The stonewall riots were started by trans women of colour and nobody is allowed to forget that

Marsha P Johnson and Sylvia Rivera didn’t march so that you could be transmisogynt and cissexist.

Excerpts from my essay, “Revealing Caitlyn Jenner: My Thoughts on Media, Privilege, Healthcare Access & Glamour” on JANETMOCK.com

“To make any trans person a symbol for an entire community is an unfair task. No one can speak about the varying, intersecting and layered ways in which trans people experience the world. That is why it’s necessary to create a space for nuance and to amplify the voices of those who often are not heard.”

AND 

“What enables Jenner to penetrate media the way she has is privilege…It doesn’t make her a bad person. It doesn’t make her undeserving. It doesn’t underwrite her talent, savvy and accomplishments. Privilege enables her access to more conversations, more opportunities, more spaces which can appear as if she’s eclipsed leaders of a movement that has been active for decades, fueled by a community that is ravaged by economic instability, lack of access to knowledgable affordable healthcare, overpoliciing and incarceration, stigmatized, criminalized survival economies like sex work, high HIV infection rates, the ability to live safely and freely as their true selves, and disproportionate violence against trans women of color.”

AND

“Not all trans people care about putting people at ease. Let me be clear about that. Yet for many, presentation is vital and essential, especially for trans women where blending in is a matter of safety. To be able to make your way through a world that so often carries so much resentment, intolerance and misunderstanding about trans people, ‘looking the part’ as Jenner says, is a life-saving privilege, one that many trans people due to economic barriers or the randomness of genetics and puberty frankly will never be able to access.”

The fuck does Jon Stewart think he’s allowed to talk about trans women? Will someone craftier than me please make a video montage of the 100+ tranny jokes he’s told throughout his career on the Daily Show?

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO IT

Friend of mine on facebook just posted a bunch:

“Hey Facebook,I’m seeing a lot of praise for John Stewart’s segment on how the media is covering Caitlyn Jenner (some of you are even sending it right to me – lol).The segment itself isn’t half bad, and he raises some good points about sexism in the media (while also using some questionable phrasing – of course). That said, can we please not pretend that this makes up for the years of transmisogyny on the show? He hasn’t apologized, he hasn’t acknowledged any sort of wrongdoing, and I’m sure tomorrow he’ll go back to making the same “clever” shemale jokes.Without actually acknowledging that he’s done a lot of harm (and pledging to make a change), his message of support isn’t so much “Hey it’s not cool to mock and insult Trans women” as it is “Hey it’s not cool when other people mock and insult Trans women, in this one instance”.
Like seriously, here are a few direct quotes from the show (there are many many more):

John Stewart: “Yes, Yes. All rise for the honorable Justice Chick with Dick!”

John Stewart: “For instance, how many times have I accidentally picked up a tranny hooker at a truck-stop? I wanna say it’s in the 50s, but it could be higher. I-I-i- guess what I’m saying is I’m nearsighted?”

John Stewart: “I am afraid that when I lumber out of my apartment in a tight dress with my scrotum taped back and my large hands covering my adams apple, somewhere, some bureaucrat will know I am a dude.”

John Stewart: “Governor Bob Riley, of Alabama, is fond of banana pudding… when served off the breasts of a Thai shemale.”

John Stewart: “Now, I’m shocked. I am under the impression, as many other people are, of two facts: the media… are liberal…and Barbara Walters is a shemale”

John Stewart: “And here’s Brazil’s most famous transsexual. Her name’s Roberta Close, but most people agree she’s much better from far away.”

John Stewart: “Among those note leaving, Richmond’s Church of Our Lady Who’s a Dude. Ohhh, tranny bingo!”

“Then, who are the British? Trannies?”

Does that sound like an ally to the Trans community to you?Fuck you John Stewart, don’t pretend to be on our side until you get your shit together.”

This is the best response I’ve gotten so far. And as bad as it sounds, it can’t possibly be near even 10% of what he’s said. Plus I want to reiterate how much I seriously want someone to compile all of his bigotry in video format. I don’t know how one even goes about doing such a thing, but I’m pretty sure it’s a really good way to destroy someone’s legacy.
