Whoopi Goldberg is the executive producer of the Oxygen reality show Strut, which features transgender people who want to be models. On Saturday she accepted the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Reality Program.
At the end of her acceptance speech, Goldberg thanked TV network Oxygen for taking a chance on her transgender modeling show, which she said "scared the s--t out of everybody else.
The reason it scared people was because everyone had expectations about what 'transgender' meant, as opposed to saying 'Oh, it's just another person.'
If you're listening to people who are saying there's something wrong with transgender people, and we have to make all these crazy changes, maybe it's time for them to go.
You've got two years before the next group of folks are to be put out.
Pay attention. If it ain't about the people, it's about the party, and it should never be about the party.
