It Happened One Night: Roland Emmerich Accidentally Tosses A Brick At The Legacy Of Stonewall Comments (0)

UnnamedI didn't honor a boycott. There is a difference between getting something wrong and deliberately getting something wrong.

At one point during Roland Emmerich's embarrassingly misguided take on the Stonewall Riots, invented character Danny (plush blond Brit Jeremy Irvine, whose accent emerges even more often than homophobic violence in the film) exclaims that he's so angry he just wants to break something

So did I, not long after one the movie's earliest, most excruciating scenes, in which aw-shucks Indianan Danny, who we soon learn has been cast out of his idyllic Midwest home for being a damn dirty queer, is slobbered over by a drag queen who won't take no fucking way for an answer. The reason for my disgust was not that the character (overplayed to the hilt to Richard Jutras) was a cliché, so much as it was that the scene was constructed to make the audience cringe. Danny's excuse for being uncomfortable is that he's had zero exposure to any homosexuals other than the strapping fellow closet-case back home (played by a Marlon Brando-channeling Karl Glusman) with whom he is in love, but what is the filmmakers' excuse?

Why does a film so earnestly about LGBT rights that it ends with a mini history lesson on the subject spend so much time seeming to grimace at the LGBT characters who aren't pretty enough?

She's Outta There! Comments (0)

Meet Janae Marie Kroc, the trans bodybuilder who lost a lucrative endorsement deal not because she was about to come out as trans (she wasn't), but because the company knew she was trans and feared someone would find out.


With all of this controversy over MuscleTech dropping me because of being transgender let me clear up a few things that people are getting wrong. This happened several months ago and had nothing to do with me coming out. This happened prior to my triceps tear when I was still planning a powerlifting come back and had zero plans to come out or change anything. I only came out several weeks ago after being outed by that YouTube video. They dropped me simply because they were afraid that people might find out I was transgender.  Also I have been interviewed numerous times thus far and am only addressing this now because I was asked directly about it and because discrimination in all forms is wrong and I feel a responsibility to be honest about this.  I am not bitter toward MuscleTech, as I still count a lot of friends in that company and I do not hold it against them based on it being a business decision even if I feel it was a poor one.  And in the end this is turning out to be a positive thing for me as it is one less thing to hold me back from being open about who I truly am. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjrMKF-_SGc #transgender #genderfluid #nonbinary #bigender #m2f #mtf #lgbtq #lgtbpride #lgbt #bodybuilding #powerlifting #truth #beyou #beyourself

Roland Emmerich Re-Whites History Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 11.42.56 PM

As I've said before, I think Stonewall looks abysmally made, not even taking into account its tone-deaf whitewashing in that infamous trailer. (Please, do not lazily cut-and-paste that widely circulated quote from that book that you may not have even read that states how Stonewall was kicked off exclusively by white people.)

I'm still gonna see it, and if I love it, I will embrace my love of it.

However, reading this interview with Roland Emmerich is infuriating. How can someone be this Machiavellian, have so little integrity, and then not even have the self-awareness to realize he should try to conceal it?

Emmerich asserts:
