Since the massacre, congress has voted down common sense gun safety laws… four times. Meanwhile, more than 200 bills targetting the LGBTQ community have been introduced in states this year. It will take all of us to change that.
Stop the Hate: 49 Celebrities Honor 49 Victims of Orlando Tragedy
For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access
to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and
murder. On June 12, forty-nine innocent people – most of them Latinx
– were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who
they were. It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to
ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate
violence. Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to
support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal
in every community and find out how to support the survivors and
families of the Orlando victims. Learn more at

Honestly Mark Ruffalo’s “Please have a little compassion. We are all learning” bullshit is a prime example of cis people demanding to be treated gently when faced with their own transmisogyny and cissexism.
Women are being murdered, and Ruffalo wants people to be ~nicer~ when they inform him of this fact like-
“Hay my guy, my fella, my dude, my bro :) not to piss on your parade, but you are actively complicit in a culture of violence, abuse, and murder against trans women :) You have blood on your hands :)”
Ruffalo talks about Bomer pouring his ~heart and soul~ into the role like that’s supposed to make us have sympathy with him, when in reality is just means that Bomer worked really hard to commit violence against trans women.
The inherent violence associated with casting a cis man to play a trans woman is not some new fangled discovery. Trans women have been speaking openly about this issue for ages.
This is the same discussion we have to have every single fucking time Hollywood decides to cast a cis man to play a trans woman in some Oscar Bait film.
There is no justification for casting a cis person to play a trans character, and there never has been.
The fact that Ruffalo and Bomer are ~still learning~ just fucking means that they didn’t bother to pay any attention to this issue until someone called them out directly.
TL:DR- Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer can fucking choke as far as I’m concerned.
