"If a cis man can’t play a transgender character then I want real rapists to play rapists and real killers to play killers."
Did you really just fucking compare trans* people to rapists and murderers? Are you serious? The main problem with Jared playing this role isn’t even really the fact that…
Its not about Leto for me, but rather, the director specifically saying he did not and would not consider casting a trans woman in the role, then questioned if there even were such actresses out there.
Additionally, in this movie based on a true story, Rayon is a completely fabricated “man in a dress” comic relief stereotype that Hollywood always goes for, meanwhile we have actresses like Laverne Cox and Jamie Clayton out there that could produce something better than a stereotype of trans women because they’ve lived as them.
I think a cis man can play a trans woman, but right now, its a lot like white men playing black men in black face was many decades ago. We don’t take a second glance at at someone like Samuel L. Jackson taking on a character like Nick Fury now because our views of race are less rigid. Our views of that have changed gradually over generations, but our culture views sexuality and gender far more rigidly and that needs to change.
It won’t change if the people being portrayed in a role are never considered for it in the first place.
I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.
Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
Fallout 3 or Shin Megami Tensei IV….?
or Shin Megami Tensei IV
Unsure what you’re asking. If its which to get, get both since FO3 is dirt cheap now used most places.
I purchased both and was trying to decide which game to play
Well if you still have yet to decide, do SMT IV first. Both are great RPGs, but FO games tend to kidnap people from the world. Definitely play FO3 before Fallout New Vegas, playing FNV first can make FO3 feel disappointing.
I look up to laverne cox so hard
I always love re-blogging Laverne Cox. Not only because of her eloquence, intelligence, kindness, and beauty, but also because her voice might be one of the most important in the fight against hatred in the U.S.A. today. What she has to say is crucial to the growth, peace, prosperity, and freedom of all of us. If you have the time, please watch this video.
everyone needs to take seven minutes and watch this.
This is really important. Watch it.
Some people wonder why I never drink. There is a reason for this is:
- For the time the phone rang and you answered your hat.
- The times you confuse your bedroom door for the toilet.
- And that time you got angry, stole my pizza, put it in the oven, passed out in your room and the pizza was done when I got home. That saved me some time preparing it!
I like to remember these things and, on occasion, rub them in people’s faces.
