KENNETH IN THE (212): That story from last year that David France somehow stole from fellow filmmaker Reina Gossett in making The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson was given a new, hard lok by an Advocate reporter. The conclusion is that Gossett feels ripped off and has absolutely no right to feel that way. Her outcry was defamatory and baseless. As Kenneth writes:
And given what we now know -- she runs from or blocks anyone who points out inaccuracies in her aggrievement theory -- why would she take responsibility for defaming someone when she can hide behind falsehoods that play into a much larger narrative that is an actual societal problem? Hollywood is controlled by straight white men and it is harder for people of color -- especially trans people -- to get films made, so why not conflate it all here for attention at the expense of someone's reputation, right?
I'd certainly watch any film Gossett eventually produces, but I think she spent too much creative energy in trying to lead people to believe she was ripped off.

EDGE MEDIA NETWORK: One thing I can agree with right-wing gay commentator Guy Benson about is that right-wing gays are not all self-loathing. I think many are the exact opposite. He argues, in a gone-viral video, that gay people should not be defined by their sexual orientation, and therefore should be free to have differing viewpoints. Sure thing. But what sense does it make to align yourself with a political movement that is anti-gay? And why would a gay person get a free pass to vote for the party that is racist and that has so many other ideologically violent beliefs? He explicitly states that gay activists who paved the way for him were left-wing. That's because it's inherently left-wing to fight for freedom. When you choose to use that hard-fought freedom to pal around with the enemies of freedom, you're going to be criticized for it. P.S. We don't live in a world where being gay doesn't matter. Unfortunately.
