Did Jennifer Lawrence & Ellen DeGeneres Just Insult Transgender People?»
“Ms. Lawrence appeared on Ellen to promote her new film, Silver Linings Playbook, and told host Ellen DeGeneres about her cat, a female who acts so masculine she has begun calling her Chaz Bono. Really?
Lawrence said of her cat; “I’ve never met a cat where you assume first that it’s a boy. Because normally dogs are boys and cats are girls. But she has such a masculine energy that everybody always says ‘he’ and for the first week I thought it was a boy. I named her Oliver, she had a collar with Oliver. Oliver, Oliver, Oliver. And that’s just weird for a cat. So we call her Chaz Bono.”
What is upsetting about all this, besides the fact that it trivializes trannsgender issues, is that Ellen was just as aware about what was going to happen in this segment. She had the photos and everything ready, and went with it. Seems like a stupid idea that could possibly make a whole bunch of people upset.
Oh, and this was taped yesterday, the Transgender Day of Remembrance.”
haha fuck you ellen
no question mark needed. seems pretty clear to me.
Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.
