I will use this thread as a honeypot to mute and block ignorant bigots.

should feel terrible that she didn’t get her brother the mental help he needed. Maybe he would still be alive if she would have stopped enabling his delusions and actually did something to help him.
 
Whilst completely ignoring the fact that her brother identified as a man when he died. Way to honour his memory Patty!

as a transwoman who faces persecution everyday for being myself I want to say a massive thank you @PattyArquette for standing up for a community that is trying to live in a world where all we want is to live.
 
In reply to @THR
But like....what rights do y’all not have tho real talk. Y’all not allowed to vote? You can use whatever bathrooms you choose, there’s countless organizations out there to support you. I just don’t get it
 
In reply to @THR
Is anyone talking about the fact that Alex detransitioned before his death?
 
In reply to @THR
Patty you are a REAL star. Not just in the movies. 💜
 
 
“Trans people are still being persecuted. I’m in mourning every day of my life, Alexis, and I will be for the rest of my life for you until we change the world so trans people are not persecuted.” — Patricia Arquette during her #Emmys acceptance speech.

This Hollywood reporter article states that Alexis had detransitioned and was identifying as a man when they died. Why are Alexis' thoughts on this being ignored? hollywoodreporter.com/news/final-day… pic.twitter.com/X822ZYHtFG

Thank you for kindness and humanity.
 
In reply to @THR
And this is reason #216 why I don’t watch #Hollywood award shows.
 
From the heart. Thank you @PattyArquette I knew Alexis for many years, a blazing, brilliant actor who’s talent & spirit I always admired. I felt lost after her passing, knowing I would never see her again or get the chance to work with her. #brilliant #EnergyNeverDies
 
In reply to @THR
Does she ever just give a speech pertaining to the reason she won an award.....?
 
This is absolutely disgusting showbiz trading on the death of a sibling. Alexis Arquette did not die from 'persecution', she contracted HIV in the 80s at a time when most people were dead within 10 years and she lived for 29 years before dying from HIV related heart problems...
 
 
 
In reply to @THR
God love her she’s so right
 
In reply to @THR
I lost my sister too. Stop drunk drivers
 
In reply to @THR
What rights do they not have that we “cisgendered” people have?
 
In reply to @THR
So was it her sister or her brother who passed away? Asking for a friend.
 
Hey @PattyArquette we have something in common. We both lost an immediate family member who was trans. I truly understand what you mean. I really do. This meant a lot to me. You made me feel less alone. I miss my trans parent every day: I say this all the time. Thank you.
 
In reply to @THR
The brunette they showed in the audience at the beginning and end. She looked at the person next to her after the speech like she was thinking 'what the f***"
 
In reply to @THR
There are only two human genders, and one cannot alter their gender. Those are facts, not persecution.
 
In reply to @THR
It seems a little disrespectful to refer to him as “her sister.” She has transitioned back to male and I was being called “he” and “brother” at his death.
 
these ppl just use the awards show to push their agenda, where do they ever talk about the movie/tv show and thanking the ppl that were involved?
 
Why would anyone hurt a #TransIsBeautiful person. Know one IRL before you hate. They're good people, and every person should be free to be what they are.
 
If youre trans please, for your own safety and health, don't read the comments.
people will call us anything under the sun then question why we have high suicide rates and blame it on us.
+ shame on 99% of you, in the comments, trying to blame Alexis death on something it wasn't

In reply to @THR
Congrats, @PattyArquette ! I am so excited Patricia won. She pretty much slayed to death every role she got. So deserving ❤️
 
In reply to @THR
If you m*rons in hollyweird would talk about mental illness and treating it instead of trying to have new laws passed by the govt. everytime someone crazy decides they wanna do something crazy these speeches would go away
 
In reply to @THR
Alexis was one of the most beautiful people I’ve had the pleasure to work with
 
Alexis Arquette was the first trans woman I remember seeing in media (I. the wedding singer) and the idea of her lived in my brain for so, so many years.
 
In reply to @THR
AND GIVE THEM JOBS. They’re human beings, let’s give them jobs. YES!
 
In reply to @THR
Alexis’ final days were spent living as a man though. I get a weird feeling she’s milking Alexis’ death to push this agenda.
 
WHEEEWWWWW SHE DESERVES!!! She acted her ass AWF as DeeDee Blanchard
 
In reply to @THR
“Persecution of trans “ give me a break 😂
 
Ms. @PattyArquette is an amazing #ReSister & advocate of equal rights for ALL people. I’ve followed her for a long time, & am honored she also follows me.

This world needs more people like her who truly care about & fight for everyone. 🌎🌈❤️#TransLivesMatter #Resist #Emmys
 
 
Thank you @PattyArquette 💓

I've been unemployed for a year despite having 20 years of experience in GIS and Remote Sensing. I'm beginning to lose hope that I will ever find work again. Being unemployed was my biggest fear after I transitioned, & now I'm living that nightmare.
 
Sorry about your loss of your sister but this transgender propaganda will be resisted. And take that anti-man anti God attitude to the car wash too
 
Hearing this and seeing @Lavernecox applaud standing up was so emotional. Thank you, @PattyArquette.
 
In reply to @THR
Love @PattyArquette! Congrats and thank you for always speaking out for others. RIP to Alexis. 💔 #Emmys

Grief is a never ending journey... we can only hope for tears to subside now & then. Grief is a “club” that you never want to join with an impossible-to-imagine, & far too great, an entry fee. Most can’t understand grief until it hits them.
 
So heartbreaking, and how heartfelt her words are ❤️

Can we have one award show without the pandering grandstanding holier than thou speeches?
 
In reply to @THR
Acceptance? I'm not accepting a man wearing women's clothing with fake boobs trying to demand me to identify HIM as a women. These people are suffering from a mental illness, Gender Dysphoria & need help, not surgery. pic.twitter.com/cNwpObMsbE
 
In reply to @THR
Enough with the liberals preaching at awards shows. These are people at the height of entitlement who think they know best from inside their multi million dollar mansions.
 
 
So touching. Alexis was an old friend.... 🖤
 
you can hear indya moore screaming "yeaaaaah !!!" this speech was so moving i :(((
 
In reply to @THR
So heartfelt, so touching 💔
 
 
In reply to @THR
Patricia Arquette is so inspirational! We never know what someone is going through. We need to be more tolerant and inclusive!❤️
 
In reply to @THR
She was a pioneer for the trans people. Ahead of her time and lived bravely in a difficult reality. The importance of your family being behind you!
 
 
In reply to @THR
What persecution? Correctly pointing out that it's a mental disorder is not a form of persecution. The suicide rate in the Trans community is over 40%, that includes post-op. Meaning, indulging the fantasy you can change your gender is harming, not helping these folks.
 
In reply to @THR
Can we just enjoy a show without politics and agendas?
 
In reply to @THR
There are a lot of mental health issues in the Arquette family as we have heard over the years. Alexis's story, however, was particularly sad added to the physical problems; such a troubled soul and such an untimely end due to HIV. It still kills you know...
 
She deserves this award and I’m so glad she got up there. Rest In Peace Alexis.

Less than 1% of people on the planet are trans. Why does 99% of the people have to do whatever trans want? I love transgender women like Blair White who’s fed up of trans activists that aren’t trans telling trans what’s good for them
 
 
In reply to @THR
Her brother had plenty of acting jobs, and died of a heart attack related to AIDS. Not saying she doesn't have a point, but to juxtapose and use the death of a family member to virtue signal at the emmy's is disgusting.
 
In reply to @THR
Beautiful, beautiful speech by Patty Arquette.
 
In reply to @THR
Alexis detransitioned in 2013 and referred to themselves as a man for the last 3 years of their life. Isn't this misgendering?
 
In reply to @THR
You used you time onstage well, Patty. I am so sorry you lost your sister Alexis. It was shocking to me...I've loved your whole family from afar for over half my life. You are fabulous and a talented artist...and a good sister. Congratulations on last night! You looked great.💕

Funny I thought we evolve since the days of the Salem witch trials were those who were different were sequestered away outside the village, only to be prosecuted later for being different.. Times & technology have changed but people obviously haven't

"Gender is bullshit. Putting on a dress doesn't biologically change anything. Nor does a sex change. Sex-reassignment is physically impossible. All you can do is adopt these superficial characteristics but the biology will never change." - Alexis Arquette after he detransitioned.
 
"Let's get rid of this bias that we have everywhere." #Emmys
 
I loved Alexis b4 her transition when she was on #Xena and I loved her after. Such a loss☹️ Talented and funny af....Sadly missed and remembered with love💐💗

41% of transgenders commit suicide. It is a mental illness.
 
In reply to @THR
This speech is beautiful! We are living in a world of hate and the words that Patricia Arquette used tonight were so heartfelt. We all need to be better and embrace diversity and inclusion. Acceptance is a great quality to have. Thank you Patricia!❤️ #Emmys2019
