Ingo and Dick

It’s been a tumultuous week for Ingo Rademacher.  One of the legacy stars of General Hospital re-Tweeted a post which questioned whether US Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine is “an empowering woman” and referred to her as “dude” (Levine is transgender).  People quickly accused Ingo of being transphobic.  His GH co-star, Cassandra James (who is trans), took him to task.  Ingo immediately Tweeted an apology: “Cassandra, I apologize to you sincerely.  I think you’re an absolute talent and you’re very beautiful as well.  I don’t think a transphobic man would say that.  I think you’re absolutely gorgeous, I really do” – which then led many to question if Ingo was only OK with good-looking trans people…or perhaps had a little crush.  He also shared an anecdote about when his 3-year-old son “wanted to look pretty.  I don’t think a transphobic dad would buy his son a Disney princess dress.”  Days later, it was announced that Ingo was no longer a part of GH.  His last air date is November 22nd.  While no reason for his departure was given (speculation runs from his anti-vax stance to this trans scandal), GH Tweeted this: “General Hospital stands in solidarity with the trans community.”


Another day, another arrest for Andy Dick.  According to reports, police were called to Dick’s home after he reportedly hit his boyfriend, Lucas, with a bottle.  A month earlier, he allegedly hit Lucas with a frying pan!  Andy’s ex-fiancée Elisa Jordana says that in June, he smashed Lucas over the head with a metal chair.  “He could have killed him!” says Elisa.  I normally don’t get into victim blaming, but at what point will Lucas stay away?
