It is never a good look or a good time when two ladies we love so much are at odds on such a controversial topic. Apparently, Pose star and trans activist, Indya Moore, is displeased with Claudia Jordan’s recent comments and questions concerning transgender people. In fact, she has outright declared Claudia’s comments and inquiries to be transphobic and off center to more important issues in the trans community; like the high number of murders of transgender women of color.

The tift began when Claudia tweeted the following after her interview with actor Malik Yoba, who recently revealed he is attracted to transgender women and came onto her radio show, The All New Morning Rush on 105.7 Dallas, for an interview and to discuss the forthcoming Visibility March set for September 28th in Washington, D.C.

As you can see above Indya, as a transgender woman,  was offended. When it comes to interaction with transgender people it is considered rude and offensive to bring up their genitalia as it relates to their gender identity. This can be especially offensive coming from a cisgender (denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex) person.

Indya’s retort including the murder of so many transgender women of color, the most recent being a seventeen year old girl who found tied up and burned to death in a car is heart wrenching and timely. Claudia may have been genuinely asking from a place of trying to understand, but with a topic that sensitive and still taboo, she should have done some research surrounding the etiquette needed when discussing this subject matter. Indya recently wore earrings with portraits of all the aforementioned murdered transgender women this year. We hope these two can come to a place of understanding over this issue. They are both such fun, beautiful, and talented women!

You can catch Claudia’s entire interview with on Smooth R&B 105.7’s radio’s site. Check out snippets of the interview below:

Kim Kardashian Being Sued By Photographer Over Pic She Posted on IG in 2018!

Apparently, he never gave Kim permission to use the picture and she posted it to her Instagram where millions of people liked it.

Permission, copyrights, and intellectual property are a real thing. Kim Kardashian is dealing with this now as a photographer is suing her for posting a picture he shot of her and her husband, Kanye West back in 2018. Apparently, he never gave Kim permission to use the picture and she posted it to her Instagram where millions of people liked it. The photographer alleged he was never compensated either for his work.

This tender moment between the Wests ended up on Kim’s Instagram — back in October 2018 — and while more than 2.2 million people liked it, one professional photographer hates it to the point he’s suing Kim.

Saeed Bolden says he’s the guy who snapped the loving shot, and therefore he owns it. According to the suit, obtained by TMZ, Bolden says he never gave KKW permission to use it, nor did she pay him to use it … so he wants a little something for his trouble.

For sure, it’s a rare pic … Kanye’s smiling, after all. We think it’s from their trip to Africa — when Ye was working on an album … which he ended up scrapping altogether.

As for how much the pic is worth? Bolden doesn’t name a price — he’s suing for any profits Kim’s made off the post, plus punitive damages.

Oddly, he’s also suing Kim’s shapewear line, Skims Body. because he claims it shares Kim’s IG account … though the solo Skims account never posted the photo.

This lawsuit brings up questions about copyright, especially when it comes to social media. As a safeguard, you should at least “@” the photographer in your captions on these photos to give them credit. What do you guys think? Petty or no? Does Kim Kardashian owe this photographer any money?

Stewart wrapped up his run as the character in 2017, the same year Disney began its purchase of Fox and re-gained the rights to use the X-Men and Fantastic Four in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Although Marvel Studios confirmed its plans to bring the X-Men into the MCU at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, the franchise is expected to get a hard reboot after Fox’s run of films. The only potential exception to that rule in The New Mutants, Fox and Josh Boone’s long-delayed spinoff that finally opens in theaters in April. It’s been reported the horror-centric mutant movie has been scrubbed clean of its references to the Fox X-Men universe, in case Feige decides to fold its characters into the MCU at a certain point in Phase 5.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Stewart confirmed he met with Feige a couple of months ago and had “long, long conversations” with him about the X-Men movies, saying there have been “moves and suggestions, which include Charles Xavier”. But before anyone reads too much into that, Stewart added he isn’t planning to return as Professor X in the MCU, explaining “Here’s the problem… If we had not made Logan, then yes, I would probably be ready to get into that wheelchair one more time and be Charles Xavier. But Logan changed all that”.

Patrick was an amazing Professor X for sure, but we are sure there are other capable and great actors to take over the role of the founder of the X-Men. Also, he has his own hands full as he is reprising his iconic role of “Jean-Luc Picard” in an upcoming “Star Trek” series.

ICYMI! Janelle Monae Comes Out as Non-Binary Using “Steven Universe” Character!

Janelle Monae is undoubtedly one of the most talented people in the world. However, it is her transparency that we have always admired the most about her.

Janelle Monae became even more transparent recently when she revealed to the world, via Twitter, she is non-binary!

Yep, Janelle Monae joins the likes of Amandla Stenberg, Sam Smith, and Ruby Rose who also identify as non-binary, or gender fluid, not conforming or identifying with either gender of male or female. Often the pronouns they identify with are “them” and “they” because they are seen as gender neutral. Janelle tweeted the following from her personal account, using a non-binary character from Cartoon Network’s progressive and LGBT friendly animated series, “Steven Universe,” named “Stevonnie.”

Often the pronouns they identify with are “them” and “they” because they are seen as gender neutral. Janelle tweeted the following from her personal account, using a non-binary character from Cartoon Network’s progressive and LGBT friendly animated series, “Steven Universe,” named “Stevonnie.”

Stevonnie is a fusion comprised of Steven Universe, a young boy born with a magical gem that gives him superhuman abilities, and his best friend/love interest Connie Maheswaran, a normal human girl.

The line “I am an experience” is in part quoted from the series when Steven’s mother, Rose Quartz, tells another fusion, Garnet, “you are not one person, you are not two people, you are an experience.” Garnet, in turn, later said the same thing to Stevonnie after Steven and Connie first fused together.

We love Janelle Monae regardless of how she–we mean they–identify! Now, if we can just get another interview with her!

What are your thoughts on Janelle coming out? Will you still be supporting them? Sound off in the comments’ section below!
