one of the things that I find unfathomable
is the idea that someone can be completely against government corruption and rally for small government
but not recognize that corporations and people of economic power can be just as corrupt and hold just as much power. and that these powers - political, economic, and other institutionalized powers - are interwoven and have real, profound impacts on people.
it’s not as simple as wanting a “free market” where you can do whatever you want, and everything will work itself out. the more you try aim for such an ideal, the more likely you are to screw people over.
10 trans actors who weren’t offered Jared Leto’s role in “Dallas Buyers Club.”
This is violence against our community.
It is social violence, for it reinforces, nay, makes explicit the idea that “trans women are men.” If it does NOT say this, then why are there not more cis women being played by cis men in cinema?
It is economic violence as well, for it takes jobs THAT ARE OURS and gives them instead to cis men.
These are just ten CELEBRATED women who could have played that role, who could have had a shot at OSCAR gold tonight. And he took that from them.

of course you don’t fight fire with fire, but you do fight it by suffocating it, drowning it, or stomping it out. you dont stop fire by just standing there and asking it nicely “please dont burn my neighborhood down”
