seriously go vote for laverne cox in this like fuck does a cis man get more attention for a shit portrayal of transwomen than u know, an actual living transwoman

Consider the following:  More people have heard of Jared Leto than Laverne Cox

Which is exactly why this needs a signal boost.  Laverne Cox deserves recognition.

how about people vote for whoever they want to vote for I stead of downing one actor for the other :))))

how about not getting offended that people want to see a trans woman get recognition for the incredible work that she’s done towards trans people visibility?  This is not an anti-Jared Leto post, but a “let’s help a transwoman get recognition for portraying a transwoman as opposed to a cis man who played a trans woman in a role that some people within the trans community don’t feel represents them.”

I am not part of the trans community.  I am cis.  But I have seen some people who are have criticism of his role and would rather recognize and honor their feelings on the matter instead of voting for “who I want to vote for” (I don’t even know who Jared Leto is so I wouldn’t have voted for him anyway).

Since I am not part of this community it doesn’t affect me personally so I’m going to stop here.  But if any of my followers who ARE part of the community would like to step in and express their personal thoughts about it I will signal boost your voice.

okay, as a trans person, I will try to type something up… (poorly paraphrasing other trans women who have said this all with more clarity)

First, Laverne Cox is actually a transwoman, and has helped the community so much just by being vocal and present in media.

There are problems with Jared Leto playing a trans woman.

1. There are trans woman actors/actresses. When asked why he didn’t consider casting a trans person, director Jean-Marc Valllee seemed rather clueless.

“Never,” he said. “Is there any transgender actor? To my knowledge — I don’t know one. I didn’t even think about it”.  

2. In the script, Jared Leto’s character, a trans woman, is referred to with male pronouns.

When you write a trans person into a movie, it’s important to respect their pronouns. And casting a man as a trans woman in the first place… Obviously the director didn’t consider Leto’s character to be a woman.

So… the movie he is getting so much attention for is pretty problematic to begin with. 

There still isn’t a lot of respect or media representation for trans people, so when a cis male gets so much attention for playing a trans woman… it’s offensive. 

The trans community is either used for laughs or some tragedy story. We’re not portrayed as people. And the the people making media don’t consider actual trans* people.

The problem I have is that Leto is  being labeled an “influential” person, like how did his portrayal of a trans woman that upset the trans community count as being influential. If anything, it’s just another step in the wrong direction.

What Laverne is doing is ACTUALLY influential and very important.

I did see “The Winter Soldier” as a “tragic” figure, but you can’t play that, you know. It’s not something that you can really use. Me as an outsider looking at a character like that I would say tragic, yes. Me as the actor kind of playing him, I saw him as a real viable threatening weapon. Somebody who just is almost operating from complete mechanical automatic ways of existing in life. He has very little trace of humanity left to him. And then somebody that essentially is starting to kind of feel things that he’s not — he hasn’t felt in a while. He doesn’t know why" - Sebastian Stan

So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.

This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies <3

My kind of boyband.

d’you think the avengers ever play a game where they try to push steve’s buttons and get him all riled up and patriotic?

tony casually throws it into a conversation like “oh yeah I don’t vote” and steve trails off mid-sentence and gapes for a second before he starts in on the importance of the democratic process and how dangerous it can be if citizens give up their say in how the government is run and tony is trying so so hard to keep a straight face

meanwhile bruce is standing in the background timing the speech with his watch because whoever gets the longest rant wins a little trophy that tony made. the current holder of the trophy is clint who managed to convince steve that he doesn’t pay taxes
