But that does not always translate to treating people with the utmost respect. *cough*Mariah Carey*cough* Related: Mariah's Diva Antics EXPOSED By Notable Masseuse To The Stars Thankfully, it turns out J.Lo is as woke as they come, and she proved it by showing her 68 million Instagram followers how to show deference to someone whose gender non-binary identity is largely misunderstood.

The Bay Area's Rainbow Day Camp is leading the way for creating safe (and fun!) spaces for kids who identify as transgender or "gender fluid"! Better said, this nonprofit is offering an atmosphere where children ages 4-17 are free to explore of gender identity and expression -- all while participating in ordinary summer camp activities. Love! Related: Caitlyn Jenner's Excuse For Wearing A 'Make America Great Again' Hat… Camp founder Sandra Collins, who is also the mother of a nine-year-old transgender girl, said: "A decade ago, this camp wouldn't have existed. Eventually, I do believe, it won't be so innovative. I didn't know you could be transgender at a very young age. But my daughter knew for sure at 2." She added: "A lot of these kids have been bullied and had trauma at school. This is a world where none of that exists, and they're in the majority. That's a new experience for kids who are used to hiding and feeling small." At Rainbow Day Camp, kids are given the opportunity to choose their own gender pronouns and counselors are on hand if they want to talk. Therapy sessions are also offered to families at a support group after morning drop-off. We need more of this!!! To read more about Rainbow Day Camp, click HERE! [Image via Rainbow Day Camp.].....»»

College LGBT Leader Shot And Killed By Campus Police

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Scout Schultz approached four Georgia Tech police officers yelling, "Shoot me!" while brandishing a pocket knife -- whose blade, according to photos, wasn't even extended. After numerous commands to drop the knife went unanswered, one of the campus cops shot Scout in the heart. They were pronounced dead half an hour later. Related: Cop Under Investigation After Telling Woman Not To Worry, 'We Only Kill Black People' This just makes us sick to our stomachs. You're telling us these FOUR cops couldn't take down one student without resorting to lethal force?? Obviously Scout was troubled. But this seems like the type of thing that could have been de-escalated if these police had any crisis training whatsoever! Chris Stewart, lawyer for Scout's parents, agrees nonlethal force should have been used: "I think (Scout) was having a mental breakdown and didn't know what to do. [But] the area was secured. There was no one around at risk." The 21-year-old suffered from a history of depression and had even attempted suicide two years ago. But Stewart says he and the parents don't think this was suicide by cop. Related: NFL Star Michael Bennett Will File Lawsuit Against Vegas Police Lynne Schultz says most of Scout's stress came from school, not from isolated over their identification as gender non-binary: "Scout was always a perfectionist. They always worried he was going to fail a test but got all A's and only two B's at Tech." Scout was the president of the Pride Alliance at Georgia Tech; they were known as a strong leader. This sounds like a troubled person. It just does not sound to us like a dangerous one, at least not one that had to be gunned down. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting. There will be a vigil for Scout at 8 p.m. EST tonight. You can find out more about that (below): [Image via Facebook.].....»»

BBC Flawlessly Responds To The Sexist Snowflakes Upset Over Doctor Who"s First Woman Time Lord!

On Sunday, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker would play the first female Time Lord in the hit series Doctor Who, and most fans were jumping for joy. Of course, a few less-evolved fans were upset over a woman (gasp!) playing the 13th Doctor and criticized the network for ruining the sanctity of the sci-fi show. Such complaints questioned how a time traveling alien with otherworldly, regenerative abilities could possibly go from Peter Capaldi to the Broadchurch actress. QUIZ: How Long Would YOU Survive Game Of Thrones? Time-bending, sure. Age-bending, no problem-o. But GENDER-bending? How can one possibly wrap their heads around such a perplexing, doctor-ruining character trait like that? Thankfully, BBC issued a response to the haters, delicately explaining it has long been established in the show that Time Lords are able to switch gender -- and those who aren't on board can sit on a sonic screwdriver! The BBC Complaints page stated how "viewers contacted us unhappy that Jodie Whittaker has been cast as the new Doctor," before responding: "Since the first Doctor regenerated back in 1966, the concept of the Doctor as a constantly evolving being has been central to the programme. The continual input of fresh ideas and new voices across the cast and the writing and production teams has been key to the longevity of the series. The Doctor is an alien from the planet Gallifrey and it has been established in the show that Time Lords can switch gender. As the Controller of BBC Drama has said, Jodie is not just a talented actor but she has a bold and brilliant vision for her Doctor. She aced it in her audition both technically and with the powerful female life force she brings to the role. She is destined to be an utterly iconic Doctor. We hope viewers will enjoy what we have in store for the continuation of the story." Translation: go fly a Tardis and time-warp the fuck over it! Whittaker will make her debut after Capaldi and showrunner Steven Moffatt's departure following the Christmas special -- and WE. CANNOT. WAIT! [Image via BBC.].....»»

As a “person of faith,” Caitlyn said she had to look back on her life and say, “Why did God do this to me? Kris and I, we had gone our separate directions, not because of gender issues but because of other things, and there I was back in Malibu all by myself, and so I slowly went through, told all my children, because it had been just hammered all over the media. In fact, guys like you making some jokes…” “We didn’t know what was happening,” Jimmy replied. “Sorry about that, by the way.” “Oh, now he’s going to apologize,” Caitlyn joked while accepting Jimmy‘s apology. “I don’t know if you saw when I was on Jimmy Fallon.
