Anonymous asked: So apparently Laverne Cox was not aware of the crimes that Synthia, the trans woman whose letter she'd read, had committed at the time of reading the letter, and later stated she would not have read the letter had she been aware of the crime.


Answer:

Thank you for sending this. That was what I thought, because I figured Laverne wouldn’t have done something like that, but I still need to do some source checking to make sure of everything. I appreciate you letting me know! -Sylv

Lionsgate Television and Titled Productions and Netflix: Remove Laverne Cox from the Cast of "Orange is the New Black" →

evilfeminist:

"Orange Is The New Black actor Laverne Cox launched a public campaign this week in support of a male incarcerated for the rape and murder of a thirteen-year-old girl and abuse of her corpse, because that man now considers himself to be “transgender”.

Cox uses the fame generated by recent acting success in an attempt to create sympathy for the convicted child-killer and his quest to medically feminate and be transferred to a female prison. “I want my voice to be heard, I want my dreams to matter, I want people to know who I am because tomorrow is not promised,” reads Cox.

Laverne Cox’s video has been widely promoted as “Laverne Cox Reads A Letter From A Transwoman Currently In Prison”, but this isn’t the first publicized “letter” from Synthia China Blast, born Luis Morales.

In 2004 Synthia China Blast emulated the New York Zodiac Killer Heriberto Seda, by sending a typewritten letter to the NY Daily News, titled “This is the voice of the Zodiac Killer’s Wife”. In the letter the sex-offender and child-killer expressed his desire to “become a woman” and “marry” the serial killer, who was serving his 235-year sentence in the same facility. “If I was a real woman I could bring about little future serial killers to terrorize NYC like my husband did. How [New Yorkers] would of loathed the Zodiac Children,” Blast wrote.

Out of all the causes in the entire world that could have been championed, the OITNB star Laverne Cox asks that you lend your support to a deranged, sadistic, life-extinguishing person who raped and murdered little Ebony Nicole Williams, then dumped her lifeless body off a highway underpass, later returning to burn her corpse.

Cox is joined in this action by the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, a transgender organization that supports incarcerated males who are serving sentences for the rape, murder, and sexual exploitation of children. The organization encourages transgender youth to write to these men, including pedophile Lewis Stevens who represents the Sylvia Rivera Law Project as “Lennea Elizabeth Stevens” in a blog on their website. Stevens is incarcerated for possessing a collection of videos of children being raped.”

I am calling on Lionsgate Television, Titled Productions, and Netflix to distance themselves from a celebrity who chooses to openly support such a violent criminal as Synthia China Blast.  I am also urging them to remove Laverne Cox from the cast of “Orange is the New Black.”  I refuse to let any more of my money go into the pocket of someone who supports violent offenders simply because they now identify as women.  I urge the production companies Lionsgate Television and Titled Productions, along with distributor Netflix to issue statements condemning Cox’s position on this subject and to urge Cox to issue an apology and leave the cast of “Orange is the New Black.”

I will be cancelling my Netflix subscription until further notice, and I urge all petitioners to do the same until such a time that a decision is made.

How Ireland’s abortion laws made me feel like a criminal
The Guardian
Ruth Bowie wanted a baby, not an abortion, but the Dublin-based nurse was told at her 12-week scan that the foetus she was carrying had a fatal condition and wouldn’t survive if she went full term. “This was a much-wanted pregnancy, and as you can …
