!! 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.’”

_91163043_arquette_group_ap

Transgender actress and LGBT activist Alexis Arquette passed away Sunday morning at age 47, surrounded by family. Alexis was born Robert Arquette and started acting at age 12. She went on to earn roles in the Bride of Chucky, Of Mice and Men, and played a Boy George impersonator in The Wedding Singer. Patricia Arquette, David Arquette and Rosanna Arquette were all at Alexis’ side when she passed. They posted these beautiful words about her passing yesterday:

“Our brother Robert, who became our brother Alexis, who became our sister Alexis, who became our brother Alexis, passed this morning September 11, at 12:32 am,” Richmond posted on Facebook. “He was surrounded by all of his brothers and sisters, one of his nieces and several other loved ones. We were playing music for him and he passed during David Bowie‘s Starman. As per his wishes, we cheered at the moment that he transitioned to another dimension.”

RIP Alexis! You’ll be missed! And we can’t think of a better way to enter the afterlife than knowing you’re about to meet Bowie there too!

!! OMG, Alberta mom performs world’s worst rap to attack new trans-inclusive bathroom legislation in Alberta !!

I would rather listen to Madonna‘s American Life rap …and that’s saying alot!

A laughably bad and terribly transphobic rap by an Alberta mum (who goes by MH Weibe) titled “Gender Bender” attacks the new trans-inclusive bathroom legislation in Alberta.

“This is just a fender bender, all over sex and gender.”

I can’t wait for her Twitter beef with Azalea Banks!
