Ellen Degeneres Called 'Transphobic' After Liza Minnelli Oscars Joke

Ellen Degeneres Called 'Transphobic' After Liza Minnelli Oscars Joke

“Even if that were the case with Ellen (which I know it isn't), she isn't the first person to make a Liza joke. I grew up with them prior to even knowing who Liza was. If Ellen is to be under fire for this, then so should every person who has ever made a "Liza looks like a man" joke amongst the many others.”

“I agree, but the problem is that whenever something is realistically made in a movie, someone always has a fit about it. These guys are trying to appeal to the masses. Unfortunately, those who want realism (such as myself) don't fall into that category.”

“What demwolf is saying is that people who have been abused tend to not speak out against that person for a very long time. Why? For the exact reason you're acting towards this. No one would believe them. Had she said all of this while he was alive, it's her word against his and guess who would win? Waiting years to speak out? Like many others have said, she spoke of it many times before, people just chose not to listen until now. Abuse can be physical OR verbal. Threatening someone is abuse. I am a huge fan of Hitchcock, but you can't be so biased as to take his side just because he's a very well known man and well respected by people.”

“As a history buff, I would love to know where you got all of your information from so far back. Was it family records or was it some other form of recordings?”

“One of the interesting "side bars" of the history of my Portuguese family is that Anrique de Milao had become a rich man by importing sugar from (Portuguese) Brazil. At that time (around 1600) there were conversos in Brazil who owned and ran sugar plantations! Others were involved in the refining and shipping of sugar from Brazil to Europe. Two of Anrique's sons lived in Pernambuco where they purchased and shipped sugar to Lisbon. Conversos were not allowed to ship from Brazil to any port other than Lisbon. From Lisbon they could the export again, say to London. Thus the King of Portugal got import and export duties from them.”

“Nearly all of my information comes from the book (in German) "Die Odyssee der Henrique-Familie by Joseph Ben Brith. (Peter Lang) Last year Amazon had two copies available.
However, if you Google Anrique Dias de Milao you will open a "door" to lots of information on Sephardic Jews and Conversos of the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries.
Interestingly, whenever a "suspect" was interrogated by the Inquisition in Lisbon, every word uttered was written down by a scribe. These records apparently survived the devastating earthquake and are available for research today. Much of what Mr. Ben Brith learned comes from these sources.”
