!! OMG, quote of the day: Oprah Winfrey post-election, ‘Hope is still alive.’ !!

cw-qtkhxeaae_cw

In an interview with the Associated Press, Oprah has said “Hope is still alive” after Obama said he was encouraged by Trump’s willingness to work with his team during the transition of power. The meeting between Obama and Trump lasted nearly 90 minutes.

“I could sense, maybe I’m wrong, but I could sense from Donald Trump’s body language even when he came out for the acceptance speech, that brotha has been humbled by this world thing,” she said. “I think it’s a humbling process that now you literally have the weight of the world on your shoulders.”

We hope to the Lord baby Jesus that Miss O is right, and her observations are correct. If anyone can speak words of hope these days, it’s Mama O! (But just in case …did anyone check to make sure that Opes wasn’t referring American goalie, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and World Cup champion Hope Solo?)

!! OMG, quote of the day: Mykki Blanco addresses her critics, says people have no right to judge her trans identity !!

A photo posted by MYKKI BLANCO (@_mykki_) on

“I’ve had some people in the genderqueer community say to me, ‘You’re a cis gay male, stop trying to tell a trans woman’s story.’ And I’ve had to say, ‘Honey, anybody who’s known me since 2010, 2011, anybody who knew me in New York City knew that I was cross-dressing, that I was feminine trans-identified, living my life escorting out in these streets. I wasn’t in a college classroom learning about genderqueer.’”

“I understand now where that misunderstanding comes from, but I always have to tell people Mykki Blanco did not start as a drag character. Mykki Blanco started as a video-art project when I was already trans-identified. I was already going by ‘she.’”

!! OMG, quote of the day: Arnold Schwarzenegger’s parents thought he was gay, sent him to a gay conversion doctor !!

Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former politician and action star recently said in an interview that as a teenager, his bedroom walls were plastered with posters of bodybuilders, leading his parents to assume he was attracted to the men, rather than simply inspired by them.

“She asked the doctor, ’Can you help me? I don’t know if there’s something wrong with my son because his wall is full of naked men. All of Arnold’s friends have pictures of girls above their bed. And Arnold has no girls.”

Although Schwarzenegger originally vetoed same-sex marriage during his time as the governor of California, his views on the subject have evolved. Most recently, he urged his fellow Republicans to reconsider their feelings towards the LGBT community or risk losing votes.

“If the Republican Party wants the next generation of voters to listen to our ideas and solutions to real problems, we must be an inclusive and open party, not a party of divisions,”

We’re glad Arnie came around!

“Our country is shit right now,” Rhodes says, pointedly. “Being a black person in America right now is shit, being a homosexual in America right now is shit, and being a black homosexual is the bottom for certain people. That’s why I’m so excited for people to see Moonlight. I don’t feel like there’s a solution for our problems, but this movie might change people. That’s why you do it — because you feel like you’re doing something that matters. This is someone’s story.”

!! OMG, quote of the day: Daniel Radcliffe has some racist friends, and worries for the rest of the planet too !!

“No, but I know some really fucking racist people, friends I vehemently disagree with. They’re not white supremacists, they would never be that extreme, but they are anti-immigration and absolutely voted to leave in Brexit. And I’m still friends with them because I don’t think that friendship should be drawn along those lines. That’d be a really sad way of viewing the world. But yeah, I definitely have got first-hand experience with this. And also, just get into a cab in London. Some of the most unbelievably racist shit I’ve ever heard came out of a cab driver’s mouth in London, and you just go, ‘Dude, you’re taking a chance. I know I’m white, but you can’t just assume that I’m gonna agree with you. My girlfriend was in an Uber the other day in L.A., and the guy was like, ‘So, who are you voting for?’ Why is that small talk in a 45-minute cab ride? At the beginning, she was like, ‘Hillary,’ and then she couldn’t help herself and asked, ‘Are you voting for Trump?’ And his actual response was, ‘Yeah, just to see what happens.’ Which is just the worst. It’s the same people who say, ‘Well, I just love Trump because he says what he thinks.’ But isn’t the problem that he thinks that in the first place?”

Daniel Radcliffe, after being asked if he spent some time with real white supremacists to have a better understanding of the script for his new film Imperium in which he plays an FBI who goes undercover as a white supremacist.
