marc4marc asked: You know that article about the Ugandan president's daughter is fake right? It's from a satire site.
I did not know that. Thank you for telling me.
judgmentalprincess asked: Hey idk if you know this, but cate blanchett's acceptance speech was actually really problematic and she essentially framed woody allen as a feminist icon completely ignoring his sexual abuse of his step daughter. Even through the "the world is round" comment was great, it's part of a larger speech that really pushed abuse apologism and abuse culture. Which is overall really gross.
I totally agree with you. I was cringing through most of her speech, but I really liked the comment I posted.
In a startling revelation, the daughter of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni admitted today during a radio talk show in Mbarara, in Western Uganda that she is homosexual, and that she is revealing this fact as a protest to the anti-gay law her father signed only a few days ago.
Diana Kamuntu, Museveni’s daughter said that though she loves her father unconditionally, she does not agree with Uganda’s anti-gay stance, and will fight against it.
“I am gay, I am homosexual. I have known this since I was a little girl. Also, I have been Christian all of my life, so I will not tolerate any law of this supposedly democratic nation, that will place hate on any person just because of what his or her sexual orientation happens to be,” said Kamuntu.
“Now that I finally revealed my sexual orientation, I put myself in front of this new law and I will let our people decide what to do with me,” Kamuntu adds, as her voice breaks down while on air.
The radio host, James Kasirivu noticeably was in shock, and could not seemingly get words out of his mouth.
The live radio broadcast was abruptly shortened and was put off air after a few hours of repeated commercials.
In the latest setback for homosexuals across Africa, the Ugandan President signed a law Monday that imposes tough penalties for homosexual acts, a move that has been condemned from around the world and that may jeopardize Uganda’s relationship with the United States and other Western nations.
As of this writing, neither the radio station nor the office of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni could be reached for comment.
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.
