We thank the Academy for denying Avatar the Oscar for Best Film

We thank the Academy for denying Avatar the Oscar for Best Film.  And we especially thank the thousands across the globe who stood up in defense of diversity and tolerance.  Those of you who protested today, who protested in December and who protest all forms of discrimination and gender imperialism have won.  Today we can be all loud and proud.  Today we are all Transgender.

You made your voices heard and the Academy heard.   You made your sexuality open and free and James Cameron heard.  You rejected hate and the world heard. 

The Hurt Locker is anti-war and we support that cause.

We are very proud of you.  We love you.

Our struggle for sexual rights, health care and education does not end today.  It goes forward, stronger than ever.

  1. Protesting Avatar has absolutely NOTHING to do with gay rights or anything else you claim to support, and the Academy awarding The Hurt Locker instead certainly had nothing to do with your nonexistent protest, you, or the std-infested WHORES Lara and Linda you associate yourself with. And I'm gay, so don't yell any of your "homophobic" crap at me. You're an embarrassment to actual self-respecting LGBT people who don't make themselves look like idiots, you trolling phony.

  3. Congratulations Lara, we did it!

  4. More like you're the ones pretending to be gay.

  5. Fucking bitches with the intelligence of dogs.

    No self-respecting LGBT person would associate with dregs and phonies like you.

    You are fake.

  6. Avatar won 3 Oscars.
    You failed.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Avatar is also the highest-grossing movie OF ALL TIME.

    And The Hurt Locker had no LGBT characters and centered on the US military, which bans gays from serving openly, so it makes zero sense for you to protest Avatar and support THL, other than Avatar being more popular and thus getting you phonies more attention.

    None of you are actually gay or transgendered anyway. You're fake. And everyone knows it.

  8. Ha ha. Cameron looked pissed.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I didn't see you protest. As I should have known, you didn't protest at all.

    ReplyDelete
  10. And nonody "heard" your nonexistant protest.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I support gays, but I can't and wont support you. Bitch! avatar won more awards and he didn't lost best film due to the crap you're talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Way to go, Lara! Cameron got what he deserved, that hetro prick.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The trannys are taking over.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The world IS becoming TRANSGENDER and that is a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I swear to god this blog is the dumbest thing ever. You aren't going to get Avatar removed. Also, plenty of other movies do NOT have homosexual relationships, so why pick on Avatar? Is it because it has aliens? Idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It had nothing to do with The Hurt Locker being the actual best film of the year...

    And the fact that you think The Hurt Locker is ok (with no LGBT characters and based on the military that outright bans gays) just shows how truly idiotic you are.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Anon here
    Avatar is the greatest movie I have ever seen. I have seen many movies without gay/lesbian/transexual relationships, and none of them were protested. I beg, why Avatar? Why this movie?

    Why not UP?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you Lara for defending our rights.

    ReplyDelete
  19. And Brokeback Mountain still lost to Crash.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Brokeback Mountain is still the best film of the year.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Did you guys even protest?

    I don't believe it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The protest stopped Avatar from getting the Best Film Oscar.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Hurt Locker won because it was a superior movie, not because you guy protested, even you even did, I sure heard nothing about protests.

    ReplyDelete
  24. LMAO
    Keep kidding yourselves.

    ReplyDelete
  25. There was no protest, and if there was nobody "heard" it. Idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's because the corporate media and Faux News doesn't want you to know about gay people.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This blog is completely idiotic! Your protest was not the reason Avatar did not win best picture and you would know that if you actually looked it up. I think everyone who supports this blog is stupid, because what you are fighting for is stupid. Get a life!

    ReplyDelete
  28. This protest did prevent Avatar from winning the Oscar for Best Film and thank God it did. James Cameron is a smug SOB.

    People in Hollywood are beholden to the gay mafia and they wouldn't dare to something to offend.

    ReplyDelete
  29. First of all, because my post will often make referance to news outlets, I watch the BBC and CNN, and I read The Economist and Newsweek.

    Moving on...

    Pascal

    Don't delude yourself, there was no protest, so your imaginary protest did nothing to prevent Avatar from winning the award. Even if it did happen, I can find no news coverage of it, so it is nigh impossible that your protest was the reason, because if no news outlet thought your protest was large enough to report on, then the Oscar award voters definetly didn't. And even if you claim that somehow that they saw your protests without any news organization reporting it, and were so shocked that they voted against Avatar (but only for best film), instead voting for a film about our homophobic military (homophobic in terms of things like 'don't ask, don't tell', not all the members of it), without letting anyone else know about their change of heart and sudden insane total support of the LGBT community... if you claim all that, then you'd still be commiting a Post Hoc fallacy in saying that your protests caused this. Any number of things could have made Avatar not win like, I don't know, the fact that the majority of the voters thought Hurt Locker was a better film?

    You lose, get over it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I was at the protest and it was fucking glorious. My gay brothers and sisters were loud and proud.

    ReplyDelete
  31. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I cant believe you people care! Its a movie! Why do you care that there were heterosexual relationships? On Earth, thats how we reproduce. If it wasn't for heterosexual relationships we would not exist. Would you prefer that hollywood only put movies like Brokeback Mountain out?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the fact that The Hurt Locker has heterosexual relationships and is clearly not anti-war (someone hasn't seen the movie).

    ReplyDelete
  33. First, Avatar is NOT about racism. This crap about a "white-messiah" complex is just that, crap! If ANYONE deserves the right to think this movie is racist against them its us, the Native Americans, who were called savages, sound familiar? It ought to, since the white general was calling the Na'vi savages & primitives. Why then, if its so much like how white settlers treated my people is there no outcry, no uproar amongst Native Americans? I'll tell you why, its because we have learned the most important lesson that ANYONE can value in life is forgiveness. There have been NO black slaves in this nation for over ONE HUNDRED YEARS. For peace sake, can we just let it go already. The people who created slavery are LONG DEAD. The people who bought and kept slaves are LONG DEAD. GET OVER IT! Its time to live in the present and let the past be the past. If you keep picking open a wound it will NEVER heal! Its time to let bygones be bygones, because so long as we are LOOKING for racist connotation in ANYTHING, then we are DEFEATING AND DESTROYING OURSELVES! We will NEVER have unity if we LOOK for reasons to scream about racism. The people that raped, butchered, and tried to breed my people out of existence are LONG DEAD, there is NOTHING left for me to be angry about. I have EVERY opportunity any white, Chinese, Japanese, African-American, Italian, Irish, Indian, Cuban, Thai, Mexican, Spaniard or any other ethnic descendant has in this country. I know that I can go to college, I'm in college right now. I know that I can get just about any job I want, the only ones I can't get are the ones that are strictly male, such as infantry, so why is everybody still being so stupid. Its time to put ignorance on the shelf and GROW UP! WAKE UP AMERICA, if you don't want to DESTROY YOURSELVES with your own foolishness! This movie is NOT racist, its ONLY that way if you are LOOKING to MAKE it that way. Why don't you stop and ask the guy that made the movie, so maybe, you MIGHT be able to comment from something OTHER than IGNORANCE! How about the guy that WROTE the thing? Has ANYONE even BOTHERED to stop and find out if he had ANY intention toward portraying the Na'vi as if they were blue Africans. It seemed to me they were more or less based on the stereotypical model of NATIVE AMERICANS! So, to all the African-descended persons out there who are screaming RACISM, why don't you do a little homework and see for yourselves. I'm so tired of so many people screaming racism as SOON as the leading role in ANY movie is white. That is just NOT SO! Read the interviews with James Cameron, then you might just be able to figure it out. In closing I just have to say that if we DON'T forgive what happened WAY before we were even BORN, that is sheer ignorance, and an intentional perpetuation of racism, which leads to reverse-discrimination of the WORST kind. I'm mostly Native American, but because there is a mixing of German in my ancestry, there are many African-descended people who have taken me for a white person, and called me all the WORST and NASTIEST names because of this. African-descended people CLAIM that reverse-discrimination doesn't exist, but I'm living proof with the scars to show for it, from getting beaten by African-descended people who mistook me for a white. I KNOW reverse-discrimination DOES exist, when I was a kid I was too Native-American to play with the white kids, and I was too white to play with the African-descended kids. How about that? Pretty interesting isn't it? Don't you all think its time to concentrate on something better and far more worthy of our time, that TRYING to find something discriminating in others' behaviors, actions, words, and movies? I really believe its time to forgive the past and live as one, but until both sides STOP being IGNORANT that will never happen. A little food for thought for you all. Have a wonderful evening everyone.

    I love how these idiotic people didn't comment on that.
    This is really making me hate gay people right now.

  35. Ignorance is a sad pitiful disease that seems to spread through the ranks of people who should not be adding the the gene pool to begin with. Get a life people, there are more important and wonderful things to get out of life besides pointing out what you "interpret" to be flawed with society.

  37. thousands across the globe? this makes me laugh. your cause was a failure.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Laura, what crack are you and your gay friends smoking, cuz honestly, being high off your ass 24/7 is the only way that I can think of as to why you think your "protest" stopped Avatar from winning best picture and why you are blind to its record breaking success......
    Actually it might have to do with that whole buying tickets and not seeing the movie.... Yeah, that sure is sticking to the man, give him the money you just wasted.....
    Have fun in your high ass dream land you dumb fag.
    (btw, my best friend is gay and he LOVED Avatar.)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I have no problem with gay people at all, in fact I have many gay friends and its no big deal, but Laura you are one big fucking moron, AVATAR is one of the greatest movies of all time, James Cameron is a genius and you will never accomplish what he did or ever have the creative great mind that he has. One word of advice, GET A FUCKING LIFE its a fucking movie jesus christ it has nothing to do with health care, or people that like the same sex, you have to have imagination, and creativity to appreciate this movie as a modern day WORK OF ART

    ReplyDelete
  40. To the person above me who is attacking Lara: You disgust me. AVATAR is pure corporate fakery and Cameron is no genius and he is a liar. He hates gays and he's only interested in making money and ripping people off. He doesn't donate money to environmental causes or AIDS research or to diversity protection.

    ReplyDelete
  44. it is funny that you call everyone not agreeing with your opinion a fox news loving phony...when fox actually does the same thing about the movie saying james cameron does not like the US military, both statements by yourself and fox are completley bogus and if you were smart enough you would realize you are the same person just on opposite sides of the spectrum, if it is not "your" way you bash everyone else, you are the opposite of pesce, and love you cult like activist, I am a liberal and even think your a complete dbag...

    you=fox news....idiot

  45. ^^^^^^^^^^

    sooo true, great point

    "you=fox news....idiot"

  46. The Bush Regime was an era of intolerance and war and hate.

    ReplyDelete
  47. The Obama Regime is still a time of intolerance war and hate. Obama passed healthcare which only made it cost more. Obama sent more troops to Afghanistan. Obama lost Ted Kennydy's senate seat.

  62. You are ridiculous. Quit turning every benign issue into some attack against your twisted community. There are plenty of lbgt themed movies out there. Watch those and quit being such a little movie Nazi. Oh and the hurt locker was not an anti war movie. It was a movie about the plight of soldiers and the job of a few brave men.
