    The artistry and depth of an actor is challenged in the roles they morph themselves to play. They’re acting. So her being cast to play a trans role isn’t an affront to the trans community. Where’s the outrage from the autistic community over Dustin Hoffman in Rainman. Spun up over nothing.

    I'm here I am trying to change us with every other one people like you are thinking that you all have had it so good I'm not going out because you are white and look so rich and name celebrities I'm thinking but everything that you all have that person had always desire never seems to get anywhere around anything like that only black person and succeeded anything like that and beyond is sister in the spotlight after work for her when I try to take away that then meet them with because he may not know the struggle that they have had in the past to get to where they are today but try to wait for the goal the standard potential potential try to do the best in a can of their own mind your white person struggle is just the same as a black person you know I have known and that makes me think differently all of us and I wish you nothing but God grace to you and your family

    Hi scarlet , who are you to intervene in our Internal affairs in Egypt. And ask for traitors to be released from Egyptian prison, I don't think you exactly know or aware of what crime they committed..so it's none of your bloody business to pock your nose in our business.. See to the Election CORRUPTION IN USA ..AND DEAL WITH YOUR COUNTRY'S PROBLEM..
