!! OMG, Caitlyn Jenner confronts angry protesters at a Chicago event who call her ‘an insult to trans people’ !!

Things got heated this week when protesters outside of an event took a jab at Caitlyn Jenner, calling her

“a clueless rich white woman who thinks disenfranchised trans women of color should just pluck themselves up off the street and stop being so lazy.”

Ouch! Cait tried to address their concerns but her attempts to reason fell on furious/deaf ears!

Hopefully she’ll be bale to talk about some of these concerns publically or work with an organization soon to prove herself otherwise! After all, whether she likes it or not, she’s an icon now, and as Yoda always said, with great power comes…

A statement from Now, the protesting group’s Facebook page said

“Caitlyn Jenner… lives in a mansion and has a net worth of millions of dollars, while the average trans person has a 41 percent chance of experiencing homelessness and a nearly 50 percent chance of living off less than $10k per year”.

What’s your take!?

!! OMG, lap it up! A trans beer, where all proceeds go to charity! !!

“No Label is the world’s first ‘non-binary, transgender beer’ designed to reflect the diversity of the area and champion inclusivity,” reads BrewDog‘s website in reference to their new beer which naturally lends itself to discussions of non-binary identity. Hops, which are a key ingredient in many types of beer, are known to have different genders.

“This 4.6% ABV Kölsch has been brewed with hops that have changed sex from female to male flowers prior to harvest. We have used these to emphasize that, just like humans, beer can be whatever the hell it wants to be, and proud of it.”
To create the Kölsch style beer, BrewDog said it uses Jester hops, a variety naturally prone to altering sex while growing. The brewmakers say they brew No Label “with 20kg that have undergone this change and grown male flowers; to add diversity, rather than restrict it.”

The brewery described its new beer as a concoction that “blurs boundaries between the binary worlds of lager and ale. The beer draws parallels with individuals who identify themselves in a similar ‘non-binary’ way, as neither exclusively male nor female – a community of people that is still largely under-acknowledged by society,” the company wrote on its website.

“This 4.6% ABV Kölsch has been brewed with hops that have changed sex from female to male flowers prior to harvest. We have used these to emphasize that, just like humans, beer can be whatever the hell it wants to be, and proud of it.”

BrewDog says all proceeds from sales of the beer will be donated to the LGBTQI+ organization Queerest of the Queer, a UK-based group, to support charities for transgender youth. What a great idea! Drink up, folks!

!! OMG, WATCH: Elle Fanning as a trans teenage in the trailer for ABOUT RAY !!

Here’s Elle Fanning starring opposite Susan Sarandon and Naomi Watts in a new film about a trans teen, transitioning from female to male.

Though it appears from the trailer, which premiered on Vanity Fair, that Ray’s mother (Naomi Watts) is on board with her child’s transition, Ray’s absent father (Tate Donovan), who has a new family, seems resistant. Ray’s grandmother (Susan Sarandon) pops in with uneducated comments like, “Why can’t she just be a lesbian?”

Someone grab my earplugs because I can already hear the deafening Oscar buzz. Jared Leto is giving Elle a knowing wink – this sounds like a recipe for accolades!
