Waking up from my post Pride Run nap, I grab my phone to skim through Twitter for inspirational photos of menz in various forms of undress and I come across numerous tweets about Sarah Sanders being asked to leave a restaurant….for….well being Sarah Sanders.
Of course she is crying foul. Her daddy is crying foul, and those that support Trump with their 2 brain cells cry foul.
Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so

I am bringing this up because it falls in line with our “let them eat cake” conversation. Sure go ahead and big a dick and refuse to bake a cake for a loving couple. BUT you have to tell us with a massive sign, that takes up 30% of your store front window. Then, we, as consumers, can decide where to shop.
The owner of the Red Hen, simply decided she didn’t want to serve the women that helps to propagate the lies and discourse that comes from the White House. Sarah Sanders is a dick and just like we can chose to not buy from her, if she was a shop owner, we sure as fuck can refuse to take her money.
“I’m not a fan of confrontation. I have a business and I want the business to thrive. But this feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable decisions to uphold their morals.” – Stephanie Wilkinson, owner RED HEN https://t.co/s6V0LR1LEj

I have been thinking about this for a while and wanted to put this out there for you to think about and share your thoughts with me.
I want to know who you think should get to play the role…
We have seen numerous out spoken actors, Sir Ian McKellen being one of them, stating that gay actors are disregarded in Hollywood. Be it either; actors, directors, screen writers, or any other artists.
We have seen some successful LGBTQ+ roles that have been played by an actor who does not identify the same way as the character they are play. 2 examples that pop off the top of my head are; Eric McCormack in Will & Grace and Jeffrey Tambor in Transparent.
So with having said all that, I want to know what you think.
Should homosexual or bisexual roles only be played by actors that identify as homosexual or bisexual? What about transgendered roles? Should those only be played by transgendered individuals?
Would this also mean then that any actor that identifies under the LGBTQ+ umbrella continue to be disregarded for heterosexual or cis-gendered roles?
