Anne Hathaway trans

Can someone please tell me what is going on?

All over her Instagram it is flooded with trans stuff (fine) but it seems to be reaction to some sort of apology to the trans community?

Can anyone tell me what has happened?

I can't make head or tail of it?

I figure someone on this board will be able to explain it to me smile

Are they talking about the actress or Shakespeare’s wife (now that would be a tale to tell)?

iamtheoneandonlyyy Sun 26-Jul-20 16:31:02

I don't think Shakespeare's wife is on insta grin

The actress 😂

But I can not make out what it is all about?

I can not work out what she has done "wrong".. check out her insta.

She is thanking someone called misslang for giving her a chance to get it right ?

I just can't work out all this stuff.

What has she done "wrong"?

It just reads like some serious propaganda / there was a takeover of her account which I realise lots of people have allowed as part of BLM .. but can someone explain the trans aspect?

I think it's just her way of supporting BLM. Narrowing in on Black Trans Lives Matter.

I thought her posts about the WOC doctors and the black doula fighting to improve maternity services for WOC were far more interesting and helpful.

black doula fighting to improve maternity services for WOC

Now that is indeed a good thing - maternity outcomes for black women are atrocious when compared to those for white women (both in the US and here) - think of Serena Williams' experiences.

But I wonder if this is what's caused her the problems? Maybe she inadvertently said "pregnant women" instead of "birthing people" and what we're seeing now is the abject grovelling of someone who has yet to realise she's caught in a purity spiral and now she's said one thing a tiny bit off message, there will be no coming back, and she will be hounded to the gates of hell and beyond.

I think you might be right.

So you can't support black women giving birth - as it isn't seen as inclusive to trans community?

It is just so ridiculous - women are being erased.

There was one post from the clang person that said

"It is ok to be part of the problem, it is not ok to stay part of the problem"

I am assuming that was directed towards Anne Hathaway.

I still can't work it out.

Aaryn Lang, the Misslang mentioned on Instagram, seems like a pleasant character hmm. Imagine the backlash if someone posted a picture wearing something proclaiming that they hate trans people. Double standards abound.

thekeep Sun 26-Jul-20 17:22:07

neautraljanet please explain what this shit is all about.

Why is Anne Hathaway so keen to have this person takeover her account - why are people saying she needs to apologise to that person?

NeutralJanet Sun 26-Jul-20 17:24:37

I have no idea what she's apologising for. I had a quick look over on Instagram to see after I read the first few posts of this thread and I'm none the wiser.

thekeep Sun 26-Jul-20 17:25:02

And sorry Misslang not clang.

I am just like what is this shit all about?

Are we really in a place if you support females who have to give birth then you somehow get a pile on unless you can convince your followers that you are now suddenly educated and contrite?

I still don't know what Anne Hathaway has done?

Is it all emperors new clothes shit?

I follow feminism chat from time to time and consider myself a feminist but I can't work out this stuff? Been on mn a while but name change often.

Yes it is just so bizarre?

I don't get the 'Black Trans Lives Matter'. Of course they do, or is the statement ''Black Lives Matter'' not inclusive enough? Black trans people are black people, no? confused

thekeep Sun 26-Jul-20 17:40:29

What I don't get is what the actor is supposedly apologising for?

thekeep Sun 26-Jul-20 17:41:21

So is it because she referred to doulas?

I have no idea what is going on - someone has commented asking where the video of her 'atoning' and explaining the Insta takeover has disappeared to, so obviously she has said something that has pissed off Aaryn Lang and this is her penance. But no idea what.

To be honest, I have always thought that AH was pretentious and up her own arse ever since that post Oscars speech when she won for Les Mis. Especially when it was compared to Jennifer Lawrence's the same night!

Her Instagram isn't doing much to change my mind - it's all a bit cryptic isn't it? Like what she is on about is something that only the truly enlightened would understand? I don't know, maybe it's because I have never looked at her Insta before, but at least if you went straight to say Munroe Bergdorf's account, you would know exactly what Munroe stood for and was campaigning for straight away?

thekeep Sun 26-Jul-20 17:47:25

I don't get the aspect in relation to the Anne Hathaway account ...

Anyhow I guess I will just remain puzzled?

Perhaps there is a story on her account that explains it all.

Yes, I have thought it is odd how 'Black Trans Lives Matter' has gained almost as much traction as 'Black Lives Matter'? But I have not seen similar for 'Black Gay Lives Matter' or 'Black Disabled Lives Matter' or any of subset of black people?

thekeep Sun 26-Jul-20 17:50:16

Tharshowwerowl you say it a lot better than me.

Yep all I know about Anne Hathaway on insta is she seems to hang around with Valentino and his partner .. and I love Valentino's partners account of their opulent lifestyle and love, it is my Instagram guilty pleasure grinsmile

thekeep Sun 26-Jul-20 17:54:04

Maybe it is about the doula thing .. there are quite a few posts on the misslang account (not the takeover of the Anne Hathaway account) about her being a transexual mourning her womb..

I don't know though confused but I was just thinking if you were a young kid who was into some of Hathaway's cheesy films and came onto her Instagram account you might wonder what you were meant to believe..

Anyone else completely get the wrong end of the stick here, thinking of the wrong Lang?!

SerenityNowwwww Sun 26-Jul-20 18:15:53

Thanking someone for letting her ‘get it right’? Sounds like something a schoolgirl would say to the cool kid.

aliasundercover Sun 26-Jul-20 18:21:05

The BTLM stuff is simply because TRAs are very good at latching on to whatever cause is in the news - a bit like the SWP used to be: turn up with placards, hand them out, make sure you’re near the front when the cameras are around.

BLM is in the news at the moment, so the TRAs are there, telling everyone they’re racist if they don’t get on board, just as they insisted on being part of LGB. If disability, say, or single parents,, become the next newsworthy cause, you can guarantee that the TRAs will be there, telling everyone that trans disability should be centred, or that trans single parents need to be pushed forward.
