Garrett Hedlund has been set to lead the cast of Burden, a project penned and set to be directed by Andrew Heckler, who will start production in two weeks.

Inspired by true events, the film follows Mike Burden (Hedlund), an orphan raised within the Ku Klux Klan who attempts to break away when the girl he falls in love with urges him to leave for a better life together. As the Klan seeks Mike out for vengeance, a black congregation led by the benevolent Reverend Kennedy takes Mike, his girlfriend and her son in, protects them and accepts them into their community in hopes of teaching Mike about love and acceptance.

Co-starring are Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, Oscar nominees Tom Wilkinson and Tess Harper, and Hands of Stone’s Usher Raymond.

Hedlund will be seen next in Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, alongside Carey Mulligan in Mudbound and in Cary Fukunaga’s upcoming TNT series The Alienist.

@guideonragingstars is a raging transmisogynist who started a literal 'female only' dating site known as Terf4Terf. Most of what she posts on her blog is down-right violent towards trans people and trans women in particular. I can't understand why you would consider linking to her or recommending her in any way, shape or form.

I linked because the subject of her survey was relevant to the subject at hand, and I found it informative to read the numerous responses given by the individuals who responded to her, whom were themselves from varying political affiliations.

The voices of detransitioners in my experiences have been few and far between. Even though Cari herself is a TERF, the content of the survey was not aimed at TERFS but rather at the experiences of detransitioners, whom unfortunately do often possess hostile attitudes towards trans people as a whole due to their own negative experiences.

Her survey received quite a lot of attention, even from people involved with the WPATH standards of care. Pretending that she or her survey does not exist does not help us identify the needs of that community. (Detransitioners)

If you have alternate suggestions or examples for other surveys taken by large numbers of detransitioned individuals, I would actually be glad to share them. After all detransition is somewhat of a taboo to speak about in the trans community, which is one of the factors which causes so many detransitioners to hold such a hostile view of the trans community upon their departure.
