seriously go vote for laverne cox in this like fuck does a cis man get more attention for a shit portrayal of transwomen than u know, an actual living transwoman
Be sure to vote ‘yes’ for Laverne Cox, but also remember to vote ‘NO’ for that piece of shit Jared Leto
It’s called acting. for example, gay people can portray straight people and vice versa. You don’t even know how much Jared went through to try to understand and correctly portray a transgender woman. He wanted to make Rayon as real as possible and show the world the real struggles of transgendered lives. He wanted to do the transgender community justice and he wanted to make them proud. Lastly, go ahead and promote the person in your favor, but it’s very rude and inhumane to demote someone else.
also just to add on to this, yes Laverne deserves to be apart of the time 100 thing. I have nothing against that. but that doesn’t mean Jared doesn’t deserve to be too. there is a way to promote what you want to promote without hating and disrespecting other people. jared has nothing but respect for the trans community.
Excuse me but everyone knows this TIME 100 is an overall type thing. Just because you’re upset with Jared personally for taking the role of Rayon, it doesn’t make him a “piece of shit” nor does it null his entire career aside from that ONE ROLE. Not one of you gave two shits about Jared until he took this part. He didn’t affect you then and he doesn’t affect you now. It’s not a competition against any of these people on the list. You can hate him all you want, but regardless, HE’S ACCOMPLISHED a lot in his career and you will never take that away from him. You only care now because this one job he did penetrated your life and now you’re out to get him. I’m all for fighting for what you believe in, HE taught me that, but the war like fight is doing nothing for your voices but pissing people off. And whether you believe it or not, Jared always speaks highly of the trans community. I just cannot believe how an actor can get this much vitriolic backlash…
Speaking of which, I wonder where all of you were when Hilary Swank won an Oscar for Boys Don’t Cry or where were you when Felicity Huffman won a Golden Globe for Transamerica. Did you lose your minds and go on protest sprees? Because they may not be male, but they are both white cis women who portrayed trans people. Or is it JUST Jared Leto that causes you to go to these lengths of slander, bigotry and hate. You want yourselves heard, you want equality but all you are doing is BREEDING FUCKING HATE. You say he’s a piece of shit, I say get a mirror. And FYI THIS “piece of shit” white cis bitch voted for LaVerne yesterday as well as Jared.
PS: if anyone tries to use the “rapist” story as evidence of him being a ‘piece of shit’, please don’t even bother, as people ignorant enough to take those claims as “accusations”, hurt my brain. Jared newbie bandwagoners using those old fan fictions to further their hate, hilarious.
YES FAITH IN MARS. SUCK ON THAT YOU BIGOTED, HATEFUL BASTARDS!
