Transgender Actress Erika Ervin On Her ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Role

We couldn’t be more thrilled for “American Horror Story: Freak Show” to kick off for numerous reasons, and learning that the hit FX franchise will welcome a transgender performer just makes our excitement for the show more palpable.

For more on Erika’s remarkable life including her time as a lawyer and her encounter with AIDS in the nineties watch the full mini-doc here.

These are very best pieces of advice ever given to me by other writers.

1. Writing is the easiest part. It’s the author shit that’s hard. (Ian Rankin)

2. Never, ever diet on tour. (Kate Atkinson)

3. Don’t believe anything film people say until you’re at the première,…

Just good advice in general

Consent means to give permission.
It is both people’s responsibility to get consent from their partners. Everyone has the right to decide whether they want to have sex or not.  
Consent is…
·        Freely given — no pressure, no manipulation, and no asking if it was ok to do halfway through or after the fact.
·        Informed — telling them about any STDs they should know about, being honest about using condoms and birth control, and being honest about whether you’re sexually active with other people.
·        Something you can take back — it’s ok to stop or change your mind at any time. Saying “yes” once doesn’t mean saying “yes” forever, or “yes” to other sexual activities.
·        Enthusiastic — being excited about it, not just letting it happen.
When people think about consent, “no means no” often comes to mind. But saying “yes” is really important, too. A straight-up “yes!” means that no one has to guess or assume anything, and you’ll know they’re really into it.

The New Yorker is finally ready for the digital age. This is their first-ever GIF cover.

This is gorgeous. This is something I would totally subscribe to on a tablet and read on my commute.

On a day when I’m ready to throw my hands up and leave this city…

When it comes to filmmaking, you have to be fearless. When it comes to animation, you have to be ruthless.

You have to be fearless in your decision to keep the controversial shots, the language, the sound, the message. When you animate, you have to do things that make you…

This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

This piece of garbage, right here, should be prosecuted for this.

#reportsampepper Sexual Violence is not a “prank”. It is a crime.
