Leonardo DiCaprio denounces climate change deniers at Global Citizen Festival

Hey Leo: Give up your own self-interests of flying via private jets and yachting around the world. And give up your world press tours for the sake of movie profits.

All of you Hollyweirdos are HYPOCRITES.

From Hollywood Reporter: Over 60,000 people piled into New York’s Central Park on Saturday night for the 2019 Global Citizen Festival to not only see performances by the likes of Queen + Adam Lambert and Pharrell Williams, but also hear from stars and activists about Global Citizen’s movement to end extreme poverty by 2030 and achieve the sustainable goals set forth by the United Nations.

Leonardo DiCaprio, a staunch environmental activist, took the stage to condemn the politicians who “have failed to live up to the promises” of the Paris Agreement, along with those who have responded to the recent Global Climate Strike by criticizing its leader, 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.

“Last Friday, young people led the world in strike. Millions of individuals did more than simply walk out of their schools and places of employment. They took a stand. They set an example of true leadership that our planet so desperately needs. These young people have said clearly, definitively and without fear, that the time for inaction is over,” said DiCaprio. “Yet, surprisingly, some have reacted to this movement with insulting tweets and negative talking points — individuals that seem to care more about profit and their own self-interests than about your own future. But we know that the climate youth movement is more important and crucial than at any time in human history.

The actor added that the scientific community has made this clear, “and unless you live in alternate reality, there is no more time for denial.”

Fellow actors Natalie Portman, Laverne Cox, Forest Whitaker and Kal Penn also highlighted other worthwhile causes. Dakota Johnson returned to the festival after sharing her phone number onstage last year, encouraging sexual assault survivors to call her and leave a voicemail telling their story.

“I received calls from six continents, 70 different countries, adding up to around 60 hours of real stories,” Johnson said. “These stories are from every age, and every gender, and 95 percent of them being women. The oldest called identified as 71, the youngest was 11.”

Mandated acceptance of “transgender” women: What did real women fight for?

Many women I know – including myself – do not think of ourselves as victims. Yet we do know that throughout history women had to fight for the rights we enjoy today.

We have those hard-earned civil rights thanks in part to women who set the path for the 19th Amendment, Sheppard-Towner Maternity Bill, Cable Act, and Equal Rights Amendment. Read about some of these women and what they fought for here.

There was also the “feminist movement” – the one before today’s “Feminazi” or “third-wave feminism.”

Despite what feminism has turned into today, the original feminist movement was intent on giving women legal equalities and addressing the role of women in society.

The Emergence of “Transgender” Women

After years of fighting hard for equality in this country, along came a new definition of a woman that the Cultural Marxism agenda infiltrated into academia, media, and politics. This had to be done to change the intellectual paths of our lives to cast uncertainty about the laws of human biology.

During the past thirty years, transgender women have become accepted as women to the point where society would have us believe that they can menstruate and become pregnant!

Many transgender women would argue that these references to biology are inherently anti-feminist. I counter that their arguments are inherently anti-science.

But the narrative has surpassed science: A global poll of women across five continents from September 2018 indicated that women believe that transgender women should have the same rights as other women.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation poll asked 1,000 women in Cairo, London, Mexico City, New York and Tokyo: “Should transgender women have the same rights as other women?” In total 798 answered yes, 37 said no and 165 declined to answer.

Beating Biological Women at Their Own Game

Now that a progressive society has deemed “transgender women” to be equal to biological women, transgender women are allowed to compete against real women – with a physiological and political-correct advantage. This in turn robs real women of their due successes. See the following examples:

Transgender woman who last year competed as a man wins NCAA track championship
Transgender weightlifter breaks record in women’s competition
Victoria’s Secret: New model is transgender woman, executive resigns
Transgender MMA Fighter Destroys Female Opponent
Transgender boy wins girls wrestling title
Rachel McKinnon becomes first transgender woman to win track world title
Transgender Model Teddy Quinlivan the New Face of Chanel Beauty

So Was the Fight Worth It?

In the end of this progressive agenda, we are told that “transgender women” deserve to be recognized as women and are afforded the right to compete alongside us as our EQUALS.

The beauty of women cannot be matched by a biological male

But transgender women are not equal to biological women. A man can inject himself with hormones, have transgender rhinoplasty, transgender brow lift, bossing removal, cheek implants, chin reduction/enhancement, lip enhancement, hip enhancement, and breast augmentation all they want. This does not make them a real woman.

We are told to celebrate our womanly differences. Then we are told to accept “transgender” men to compete on the same level as us, have the same rights as us, and that they are biologically equal to us.

In their emotional desire to cater to the mentally ill, the left has condemned us all as “real” women.

Many things true women fought for and the differences that make us unique are taken away from us. The progressive agenda has wormed their way into the privilege and beauty of womanhood and replaced us with men.

So was the fight really worth it?

Singer Sheryl Crow says everyone is pro-life, including people who get abortions

From HuffPo: Sheryl Crow believes women should have the power to choose what to do with their own bodies.

“It’s not up to the government to decide what women do with their bodies,” the iconic singer said Wednesday on the red carpet for the CMT Music Awards. “We should have the opportunity to be in charge of our own bodies.”

Crow said the recent abortion bans in states like Georgia, Alabama and her home state of Missouri are simply “wrong,” adding that “everyone is pro-life” including people who get abortions.

“Particularly in the state of Missouri as well as, I believe it’s Alabama, I think there’s only two women in the entire … House of Representatives that are making the decisions,” she added. “So I feel like it’s wrong and I have always felt like the government needs to stay out of that.”

Planned Parenthood recently declared a state of emergency amid the sweeping anti-abortion restrictions implemented in several states across the country. In 2019 alone, 11 states have passed extreme anti-abortion restrictions or bans. Alabama passed by far the most extreme legislation last month, banning all abortions from the time a person knows they’re pregnant and providing no exceptions for rape or incest.

The United Nations commissioner of human rights recently said the U.S. is in “crisis” and likened the recent abortion laws to “torture.” “It’s an assault on truth, science and universal values and norms,” commissioner Kate Gilmore said on Wednesday.

Other stars who have spoken out against the anti-abortion restrictions include actresses Sophie Turner and Jessica Chastain, Ashley Judd, Alyssa Milano, Laverne Cox and Lena Waithe.

“Everyone is pro-life?”

Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiight.
