I’m not sure how helpful this would be to you (assuming you don’t already know about it, anyway), but I thought I’d pass this on to you:
Yes, this is exactly what I thought. Issues cishet people have with trans people are often rooted in homophobia (eg. a cis man with a trans woman is actually gay), and mainstream prejudices about gender expression are often a very blurred mix of transphobia, homophobia and sexism..
The presumably same people who brought this also now have a “We are getting the L out of LGBT” petition. The reasons seem very TERFy to me - especially describing “transgendering of children” as “anti-gay conversion therapy.
White guy makes thing that happened to POC about his own feelings - film at 11!
For 1., my read is that she’s not saying Halle is dark - quite the opposite, she’s comparing herself to Halle. She’s claiming she (and Halle) are too light-skinned to be Nina but “it’s more complex” so it’s okay.
John Lennon. Beloved, has the most incredibly public image even beyond his singing, is pretty much the poster boy for world peace... abused women. Repeatedly. By his own admission.

Well damn, I can't believe I missed that. Hell of a year though, I did see Bauhaus.
Well I was singing it in my head fifteen minutes ago and I'm pretty sure I was missing the occasional word, so I think I have to give it a "used to" lol.
Under The Gun is one of my favourite Sisters songs. I used to know every word of it.
I've always loved Bauhaus' cover of Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust":
"Celebrity" can be hard to define. This list seems to be generally about just models and people involved in the entertainment industry. Also, the language in this article... leaves something to be desired. A lot of "born a x, became a y" type of wording.
The article is a bit funny for the translations of "privileged white-man speak into plain old English", but that's pretty much where the humour stops for me. Seriously, wtf.

I read an interesting counter article to this one:
