There will be a time not far from now when it will be a crime to be a heterosexual natural gender. I bet my dick on it.

Not having balls is how this whole thing started.

Wasn't she at the women's march in the US, shouting in the microphone along with other celebrities? I'd imagine she'd get support for taking such a role, depicting an oppressed and oft misunderstood group, I guess not.

Ups. Guess the Internet Police will be in front of my door any minute now.

Yeah, because every lead in Hollywood is going to homosexual transgenders...oh wait.

Maybe it's because most roles go to heterosexual natural genders since that's what the main population is comprised of. But people are making a stink about the casting, because this is one of the few times a role that would best be portrayed by a transgender actor (trans actors exist, you just don't see many because the roles don't exist) instead goes to a high profile straight cisgender actor that probably wouldn't do the role justice.

And this isn't about "giving" the parts to trans actors or devaluing merit of straight ones. You can't tell me that SJ would do a better more believable job as a trans character. She's not the worst, but she's definitely not one of the better actors. Nobody complained when Cate Blanchett acted against type and played Bob Dylan...because she can act. Same with Jared Leto and Eddie Redmayne playing and winning Oscars for trans roles.

Your comment is similar to when white cisgender males complain about being the new persecuted identity when in reality they are still on top of the social ladder in most cases. Other groups just want to share a piece of the social pie. It isn't a crime to be straight, cisgender, white or male. These groups just think this because for the first time in our history they have to share the air. It becoming a crime to be at the top is just nonsensical sensationalist rhetoric.

I doubt there's many trans men with experience who can actually act just hanging around. Besides it's actors and actresses' job to act as other people. Most people don't give one shit about this kind of stuff.



Then by all means get a man to play a trans man. And presentation means everything in a movie, it makes 0 sense to get somebody who doesn't look a smidge masculine to play a trans man. Same reason why everybody was so up in arms about Christian Bale, a white man playing Moses, an Egyptian, or for that matter, Scarlett Jo, a white chick playing Motoko Kusanagi, an Asian chick in GitS.

what do you mean by masculine?

what makes a man "masculine" to you?

Again, her choice. If she doesn't want to be harassed by people who claim to be feminists, then it's her choice.

 

I will say anyone who got uppity about this should go do some self reflection for a while to figure out just what is wrong with them that they felt it was necessary to harass a woman who is just climbing to the top of Hollywood. I would have thought SJWs were all about empowering women, but this in combination with the London Pride Parade just shows that the left is positioning itself for autocannibalism.
