It’s a front-page article from 1955 about Christine Jorgensen, one of the first women to have sex-reassignment surgery. Since the text is a bit small and I couldn’t find a larger copy, here’s what the small blurb says: A World of a Difference George W. Jorgensen, Jr., son of a Bronx carpenter, served in the Army for two years and was given honorable discharge in 1946. Now George is no more. After six operations, Jorgensen’s sex has been changed and today she is a striking woman, working as a photographer in Denmark. Parents were informed of the big change in a letter Christine (that’s her new name) sent to them recently. This article is 58 years old, and it’s more respectful of Christine’s pronoun choices and name than some publications are today. It makes me happy to see a newspaper be respectful of a trans person’s choice of name and pronouns like that :3 Say it again for the haters in the back who want to keep pretending that trans people, or even treating trans people with respect is even remotely anything new. 😎 It’s worth mentioning, that this was kinda celebrated as a wonder of the atomic age at the time. “Look at the power of our scientists! Look at what we can do!”You know, back when America was trying to be the leader in scientific advancement.

80s, Adam Driver, and Adam Sandler: NO ONE WILL WATCH THIS No ONE WANTS7 /S UL JUL CARES FOA THIS its-bewitched: trilllizard666: keyhollow:Story matters more than sex, please always remember that. what’s funniest about this comic, I think, is the wildly inconsistent success or complete lack of in the properties and the vast, wild differences between how they were received in the run up to the premier of them as artistic/entertainment propertiesFiegbusters/Ghostbusters 2016 had a PR run that was mostly defined by a weird antagonism where they said detractors are just manbaby basement dwellers that hate women, along with pretty badly done trailers that people compared to Pixels. Remember Pixels? That awful Adam Sandler REMEMBER THE 80S vehicle/scam? That said, unlike Pixels, this Ghostbusters failed to make money. It flopped. It flopped terribly. So Strawman McGee was actually right, Nobody DID Watch This, besides weirdoes that used Holtzmann reaction gifs for a month and kept saying how gay they were for two of the lady Ghostbusters.Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a huge runaway box office success with people excited to see it, even though a lot of people were critical of Rey and how boring she was as a character, in comparison to Finn and Poe, who had a lot more interesting going on with their characters, respectively, and people were excited to see The Last Jedi. Then came the sequel. It was…still a financial box office success, but it was extremely divisive among Star Wars fans and any group of critics that aren’t deeply entrenched “establishment” film critics. And there’s rumors abound it wasn’t quite AS much a box office success as Disney would like, which along with Solo flopping, seems to have resulted in Disney pulling back their Star Wars output a little tiny bit. Possibly.Literally all the reasons that people were apprehensive about Wonder Woman pre-release were all reasons unrelated to her being a woman. She’s one of the most important DC superheroes, a founding member of almost all incarnations of the Justice League, and Frank Miller himself has called part of The Trinity of DC, along with Superman and Batman. People were apprehensive of a Wonder Woman film because almost all the previous attempts to bring Wonder Woman to film or TV have been some sort of disaster, from the Joss Whedon script that leaked that everyone took the absolute piss out of (which had a seriously troubled production that led to the Wonder Woman film we eventually got), to the horrible pilot that makes Wonder Woman into a bizarrely inconsistent crazed murderer. People were apprehensive of a Wonder Woman film because it was part of the badly executed DCEU, with the previous films before this including BvS and Suicide Squad, which were critically SAVAGED. People were looking at a Wonder Woman and dreading it cause they were like “oh god not another one of these fucking awful films”. and then Justice League afterwards was total dogshit. and yeah, there was a bit of controversy about Gal Gadot, but that’s from a mixture of people not being sure she could actually act well enough because she was mostly a model and was in a Fast and Furious film before this, and because she is a proud IDF member, which is kinda controversial because of all the baggage that comes with what the Israeli military frequently does in terms of war crimes. (granted, she was only ever in a non combat role when she served in the military, but come on, this website gave Adam Driver shit for joining the USMC and not doing anything combat related before he got a medical discharge cause he broke his collarbone lmao). it had nothing to do with being a woman.Literally nobody cares about She-Ra except for weirdoes into it, like the beanmouth manchildren animation adherents or the people that uniroically think SJWs are killing everything, and it’s a cheaply made Netflix show. You’d have to almost try on purpose to not make any money from a Netflix show with a low/modest budget. Also I know a few families with young girls and young boys and nobody I know seems to remotely give a shit about the reboot She-Ra. It’s all weird teenagers, shippers, and the type of people that send death threats for people drawing boobs while beating meat to the catgirl in it getting with the main character.Captain Marvel is a box office success and reviewing decently well, but even the critics that like it are leveling criticisms towards how badly shot and done some of the fight scenes and long shots are, and a popular sentient is a lot of the fights have it so that it’s almost impossible to tell what’s happening, which isn’t a criticism unique to Captain Marvel. However, most people that were unthrilled about Captain Marvel before launch…Thought the trailer looked boring (gosh, that’s familiar), or were people raising an eyebrow at how the film’s basically Air Force propaganda. And it’s probably worth saying here, Captain Marvel, or Carol Danvers just isn’t that popular a character and isn’t popular in comics at all. Marvel flagrantly kept trying to astroturf her into an A lister position after they realized they had (at the time), sold off the film rights to a majority of the popular female characters. Most all their popular heroes and anti-heroes and villains that were female are in the X-Men, which was owned by Fox, or in other films in other studios. Cue the pre-Disney buyout reboot of her. Which flopped as a solo title, by the way. Notice how almost all the stuff with Ms Marvel/Danvers Captain Marvel that does well has her as a MEMBER or a side character. She’s a C-level character that came into existence, pre-retcon, because a superpowered Kree’s DNA got mixed with hers in an explosion. She was an emergency replacement, out of universe because of the Captain Marvel DC/Marvel clusterfuck and lawsuits. She’s less a character, and more a device. And this also easily fits under the “needlessly, weirdly antagonistic PR umbrella”nobody that can string together more than a comprehensible sentence does not dislike this things cause there’s women in it, trust me lmao The issue with captain marvel is RT deleting up to 50k reviews from fans that dislike the film. The headlines are “Brie Larson defeats internet trolls!” Calling fans trolls sure does a lot to discourage them from getting into a movie.

Animals, Children, and Dating: 19:08 f Okay, so propaganda has already taken over, and the news and media blackout isn't helping the sanitization and colorization that western media has already fallen victim to, so l'm just gonna give you the breakdown asl know it: 05:46 Protests started a week ago after 2 kids got run over and killed by a bus. Protests were peaceful with most kids (ages 10-18) taking over the jobs that cops are supposed to be doing instead of taking bribes and scratching their asses. 05:47 At first, they led to runaway traffic, but over 2-3 days, they established a radical improvements in traffic control and safety, clearing up the roads that were previously horrendously chaotic. Not a single civilian had a complaint. No uproars, no violence, nothing. Probably the best civil movement in the history of this country... all by children 05:48 The blame for the prevailing lack of safety and order was rightfully placed on a senion government official - one of the most corrupt and evil of the bunch: the shipping minister. He fueled the civilian's outrage by citing accidents irn neighboring countries and sidestepped the issue quite shamelessly 05:50 Civilians called for his discharge, and students demanded traffic system reforms to ensure safety and alleviation of chaos 05:51 And that's when things started going South 05:51 Message 19:08 f And that's when things started going South. 05-51 The government tasked the BCL - their student activist wing - with"reasoning" with these kids Now these BCL animals are well known terrorists, with a track record of violence, rape, torture, vandalism, etc. etc. dating back almost three decades. 05:53 They reasoned with the kids alright. By shooting at them and striking them with machetes and metal bars. All while being protected by the police - who themselves shot at the kids with beanbags and choked them with teargas grenades. 05:54 Reports are all over the place. It didn't take long for the government to have the cell providers shut down all mobile internet services, so photoS and videos are few and far between. Facebook is the most popular social media platform, but it's heavily monitored and censored 05:55 Several nundred children and young adults hospitalized - some in critical condition, some requiring amputations, most severely injured Several children are still missing 05:56 Eyewitness accounts without sufficient evidence (but I wouldn't put it past these BCL animals) 3 school boys were murdered on the spot with guns and machetes. Four school girls were abducted and gang raped 05:58 One boy had his eyes gouged out in front of Message 19:08 f One boy had his eyes gouged out in front of hundreds of other children. (Some evidence present) 05:58 Several women. including a reporter, have been molested and abused by BCL pigs. (Confirmed and evidenced) 05:58 Reporters at the scenes were brútally beaten, had their equipment destroyed, and threatened with death 05:59 The government run hospitals have refused admission to students of any kind, some have completely shut down. Some privately-run hospitals are struggling with the influx of injuries and deaths, but they re being forced by the government to deny treatment 06:00 Med students and interns in one private hospital have taken to the streets in protest, for not being allowed to treat children in dire situations because of orders from higher-up 06:01 Last night police raided a large residential area which houses families as well as students of the neighboring private universities - the police were formed in their usual riot configuration, but only this time, hundreds of BCL thugs were lined up behind them 06:02 No reports from the situation there yet. 06:02 and that's all I got so fa .02 Message 19:09 f Beating children to death and disability - direct violation of basic human rights and international law 15:06 This shit is fucked 15:06 All being executed by the government and law enforcement. I think they're raiding homes tonight They did last night in one small region. But it 15:06 15:06 might go city wide tonight. I've been hearing stuff Go on twitter. Look up #WeWantJustice . We are begging the rest of the world to spread 15:07 . 15:07 15:08 15:08 the message, images, videos, everything ... 15:08 l he media blackout here has silenced any online presence the real situation has 15:08 No one knows what's actually happening. Not even ourselves 15:09 Message [Serious] This is happening RIGHT NOW in Bangladesh

Doe, Donald Trump, and Memes: Judge Blocks Trump's Military Ban on Transgender Service Members @balleralert Judge Blocks Trump's Military Ban on Transgender Service Members - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, Washington, D.C. Federal Court Judge Colleen Koller-Kotelly blocked Donald Trump's ban on transgender people serving in the military. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trump issued his presidential memorandum in late August. Two of its sections were blocked: his reinstatement of the ban on transgender service members and the ability to recruit openly transgender people for the military, which became effective in June of 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The judge said she made her ruling based off the "disapproval of transgender people generally.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “There is absolutely no support for the claim that the ongoing service of transgender people would have any negative effective on the military at all,” the judge wrote in a strongly worded, 76-page ruling. “In fact, there is considerable evidence that it is the discharge and banning of such individuals that would have such effects.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, the judge did rule in favor of government funds not being used for sex-change operations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This case was centered around Jane Doe v. Donald Trump, a lawsuit brought upon by current transgender service members who were against the ban. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The controversy all began with Trump's tweet from late July that wrote he would not allow transgender people to serve "in any capacity in the U.S. military."
