!! OMG, New EVERLAST 'I'm a boxer" Commercial takes on sexism in sports !!

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 9.15.30 AM.png

"Don't call me a female boxer. I'm a boxer."

Everlast has released a powerful new ad which takes on the need for an equal playing field when it comes to gender in sports. A bit about the commercial from director Claire Edmonson via The Huffington Post:

"There seems to be a trend happening where women's career titles are constantly being genderized. For instance, I'm constantly referred to as a 'female director' instead of a 'director' and I wanted to address that. I also wanted to make something positive for young girls to see."

Edmondson explained the message she wants these girls to take away from the video.

"I'm hoping that they feel encouraged to stick with whatever they are doing, even if it feels a little hopeless at time and for them to know they do matter."

Check out the clip below!

!! OMG, 'Transparent' takes home a Golden Globe: Showrunner Jill Soloway dedicates award to trans community, trans teen Leelah Alcorn, and her own trans parent !!

Transparent won the Golden Globe for best television series, comedy, and showrunner Jill Soloway did the un-Jared Leto thing and actually dedicated the award to two trans people and the community the show so heavily focuses on.

"This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn and too many trans people who die too young," she said. "And it's dedicated to you, my trans parent, my moppa. You're watching at home right now. I just want to thank you for coming out because in doing so you made a break for freedom, you told your truth, you taught me how to tell my truth and make this show. And maybe we're going to be able to teach the world something about authenticity and truth and love. To love."
Beautifully said, Jill! This is how you use your vision and platform to change the world!
