Christian Bale, ever the gentleman hero

TBH, this is the best Christian Bale article ever. Forget the lamentations on our dear Heath, this hero of mine continues to shine as a thoughtful artist of monumental grace, charm and talent. Bale was my favorite actor as a child, his work in Empire of the Sun saved my life more than once. Yes, likening my childhood to a WW2 work camp isn't a long shot. The courage depicted was fundamental to my survival, knowing Ballard has made it through something quite terrible. Know knowing that the role helped Bale's family tremendously makes even more karmically cool sense.
Christian Bale, Aug 2008 GQ

"Listen, I am a lucky git. To sit here and say, 'You know what, I don't want to work for the next six months,' and then actually be able to do that? I never imaged I would be in that position. It's luck that I am male; luck that I speak English and luck that I am white. Unfortunately, that's the stereotype in the movie buisness; anyone who isn't any of these things would have had a tougher time than I did. - Christian Bale in the new GQ

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
