CHICAGO SUN TIMES BEING TRANSPHOBIC AS FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

what a craven little shit

this is singularly transmisogynistic. he goes after Laverne and Chelsea, belittles the seriousness of invasive cis people and their obsession with genetalia, and continually misgenders both like they’re the goddamn arbiter of truth. Kevin Williamson is a sack of shit with a short career ahead.

I just called the Sun Times.

1-888-848-4637

Say “something else”, and then talk to the nice people in customer service. Tell them that this article was hate speech, that you demand a retraction and full apology by the Sun Times, and that you will be making sure that your social media contacts will know (if they leave it up) that the Sun Times republishes unabashed anti-trans hate speech.

KILL HIM.

1-888-848-4637.

Alright y’all we got the number, blow this fucking line up. And don’t stop calling this line til, the Sun Times, not only apologize, prints a retraction, and fires this transmisogynistic piece of shit.

^^^^^^ it. is. not. a. game.

Share this and contact the Sun-Times because transphobia NEEDS TO BE STOMPED OUT.

Here I even wrote a script for when I called and left voicemails for all of the employees because social anxiety makes it hard to talk on the phone sometimes, feel free to use it

Hi, my name is _______ from ________, and I’m calling in regards to the incredibly transphobic article published yesterday afternoon by Kevin D. Williamson about Laverne Cox. I would like to politely demand that your publication remove the article. The frequent misgendering of Laverne Cox is, quite frankly, despicable, and not worth anyone’s time to read. Transwomen of colour are the population most prone to violent hate crimes on an international scale, and such crimes frequently lead to the death of transwomen. Kevin’s article does nothing but promote incredibly harmful misinformation that further harms and oppresses the trans population, and simply continues to put their lives in danger. That your publication would allow an article such as this to be published is absolutely disgusting. The fact of the matter is that an opinion piece (And a misinformed one at that) regarding any marginalized identity to simply disagree with such identities is completely useless and an act of violence. I expect that your publication will remove what is nothing more than slanderous hate speech and issue a formal apology to your readers. In the year 2014, there is absolutely no reason to allow for such slanderous material to be published via any outlet that desires to maintain any sort of credibility, and you should be ashamed for allowing it to be published in the first place.”

Laverne Cox talks to TIME about the transgender movement

side note: i don’t like the “next civil rights” language on the cover because it erases the fact that laverne’s experiences aren’t just that of being a trans woman. laverne cox is a black trans woman. that is important.
to suggest that the ongoing lack of civil rights for black folks in this country doesn’t directly inform the particular form of transmisogyny she receives is ridiculous in a world where black trans women are disproportionately affected by both physical and economic violence.

Watch: Nintendo Characters Celebrate Gay Marriage

After gamers took to social media to criticize nintendo for not including the ability to marry a same-sex character in their upcoming game, Tomodachi Life, Nintendo responded saying that they hope to be more inclusive in the future.

Sunday Night’s episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver poked fun at Nintendo’s response.

Part one has over 13,000 but lacks men of color so I did a part two for equal representation.
