Candis Cayne & Gigi Gorgeous Call Out Donald Trump For Rolling Back Protections For Transgender Children!

Donald Trump

Two steps forward, a million steps back.

As we reported on Wednesday night, Donald Trump shocked the nation when he withdrew federal protection for transgender students. Previously, under Barack Obama's administration (miss you), students were allowed to use whichever restroom corresponded to their identified sex.

Even Caitlyn Jenner is speaking out against the "disaster"! Gasp!

Former I Am Cait star Candis Cayne and YouTube sensation Gigi Gorgeous, who are both transgender, are the latest celebs to put in their two cents about this immoral bullshit.

The 45-year-old told People:

"We've had this struggle for years. It's always been two steps forward, one step back. Our community has been blessed that we were in the Obama era where they respected civil rights and that our community mattered — that we deserved to live just like everyone else. This is going to be another fight for at least four more years and we are going to really have our wits about us."

Gigi added of her reaction:

This makes our blood boil.

Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump's Secretary of Education, stopped by the annual Conservative Political Action Conference where she not only gave a speech about "protecting" students, but also dragged Barack Obama's transgender bathroom policy by calling it an "overreach."

We're sorry, how are you protecting all students when you just took away a policy which ensured every transgender students' safety in federally funded schools? But we're getting ahead of ourselves.

In regards to POTUS' decision to rescind federal protections for transgender students which allowed them to use the restrooms and/or changing rooms that matched their identified gender, Miz DeVos defended:

The Children's Courtyard may sound like the most idyllic pre-school ever, but that didn't keep it safe from controversy this week.

A teacher at the "educational day care" center named Nancy Salem was one of 24 anti-Israeli activists found at the University Of Texas, Arlington by racism watchdog group Canary Mission.

Oscars Ageism?? See Why New Study Wants #OscarsSoYoung To Be The Next Cause

no title

The Academy may be doing better in representing people of color this year… but that doesn't mean they're completely off the hook!

Though this year's Oscars nominees are much more inclusive in terms of honoring diverse storytelling through films like Fences, Hidden Figures, and Moonlight, there's still one demo that Oscar films have largely ignored.

Well, there are a lot of stories that still aren't being properly told (but that's a different conversation, Scarlett Johansson) — however, a new report has pointed out the stark lack of representation of seniors in this year's nominees!

Researchers at USC's Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism looked at the 25 best picture nominees from 2014, 2015, and 2016 and discovered that less than 12 percent of the 1,256 speaking or named characters were 60 years old and up.

That number doesn't quite measure up to the 18.5 percent seniors make up of the U.S. population, OR the 14 percent they make of film ticket buyers.

But it does align with industry trends. In an earlier study, USC researchers found that just 11 percent of characters in the 100 top-grossing films from 2015 were over the age of 59.

Co-author of the study Stacy Smith said this underrepresentation is a "missed opportunity" for studios, explaining:

Lesson: Terri does not fuck around.

A few weeks ago, after 18-year-old Connor Cox returned to Westminster College in Pennsylvania from being home for the holidays, he was so excited to get a care package from his mom.

Library Of Congress Pulls Donald Trump's Portrait Due To A Grammatical Error!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpSad SadTwitterEducational

no title

As evidenced by his Twitter account, grammar isn't really Donald Trump's strong suit.

And apparently, the inability to write a cohesive sentence is trickling down to the rest of the White House!

Over the weekend, an inauguration portrait of the President was removed from the Library of Congress store after Twitter users pointed out a glaring typo!

The pulled poster features a beaming Trump with a quote from his inauguration printed over his chest — but one of the four lines has a grammatical error that even George W. Bush would have been able to point out!
