Under Pressure from Trans Extremists and Leftists, Business Insider Pulls Article Arguing That Scarlett Johansen Can Play a "Trans Man" If She Wants

They claimed the article was "offensive" and that the writer did not have the "expertise" necessary to opine on whether a female actress can play a female person herself pretending to be a man.

They also objected to the term "social justice warrior" as forbidden "name-calling," and that word now seems banned at Business Insider.

Someone I read posed a good question about this controversy:

By these rules, no gay man or lesbian woman should ever be allowed to play a straight character.

Do the trans activists, gay activists, and social justice warriors agree?

26 1. Gender is a social construction of a stereotype made by many, many people of many, many generations over many, many years. This gender is entirely made-up and arbitrary.

2. Gender is how you *feel* inside, as a single individual. Whatever you feel is your gender is your gender.

--> How can you have an "expert" on individual feelings about words appropriated from society?

44 Question to ponder. will this:

a/ Make movies about trans people more common, more profitable and result in trans people being accepted into society

or

b/ Make hollywood run from any script with a trans person in a major role since, like midgets, they will have a very small pool of acceptable actors and few BO draws.


Now ask if they are doing this to advance trans rights, or to achiever their larger goal of taking down Western Civilization.

Yeah I've never been impressed with her work. She was pretty good in The Prestige, but otherwise, she's just there... other than the scene in the Avengers where she looks genuinely terrified of the rampaging Hulk. That was pretty good since there was literally nothing there to act against.

She's a moderately pretty face, and that's about it. The fixation with her ever since her underage panty scene in that boring Bill Murray movie gave her a huge start, but I wonder how much she's been MeToo'd through the years to get roles.

Probably. Playing weird roles like that usually are good Oscar bait, like playing a retard (but never full retard) or a serial killer in prison.

It's a form of domination and humiliation. A way to strike out at the straight community.

Homosexual men also have a common kink of wanting to seduce straight men and turn them queer. Kinda like the "I can bone that lesbian straight with my wonder wang!" fantasy some men have.

125 Here's another thing I don't get.

The left is always screaming about privacy-- NSA, patriot act, electronic privacy, government dna databases, etc. etc.

And yet, I can remember a time when sex was a private matter. What you did with which body parts, and with whom, was something that you never ever talked about -- not with family, not with co workers, and not even with friends.

But the left insists on putting this stuff in our faces. I do not care who is gay and who is into waterskiing, (whatever that is,) but I just don't want them parading it in my face, half naked, on every damn tv show and every street 24/7

So again, I have to ask. Is this about the right to be a freak, or is it about the right to destroy Western Civilization in decadence and filth.

If they cast a Tibetan as the Ancient One, they'd piss off the Chinese and not be allowed to show it there. If they cast a Chinese as a Buddhist Monk rather than a superrational asian of non-determinate-religion-but-probably-a-good-patriotic-communist... they'll piss off the Party and not be allowed to show it in China.

So they made the Ancient One an Irish female. Good actress, but a lousy script where her students abandoned her for no good reason I could see.

So did I. But all these actresses get a bit of fame and a bit of power and think they can do anything when all they are capable of is pretending to be someone else, and some of them not even that. This goes for men as well.

========

This SJW crap did not exist long ago for actors such as Peter Sellers (Dr. Fu Manchu, DDS from Indiana U) or Max von Sydow.

The case you are thinking of is Tilda Swinton playing a Tibetan monk in Doctor Strange a few years back.

The technical bullshit made up SJW term for this is "whitewashing", ie. putting a Caucasian character in a role that is of another race (such as Welles in Othello).

Never saw Strange, but Swinton, though clearly Caucasian, has an exotic beauty. I could enjoy her in that role. Myrna Loy also had features that lent themselves to her being cast as an asian.

Watching Dersh over the weekend, and I believe he is totally taken aback at how his Leftie friends and neighbors have so openly thrown him under the bus. He fights to hide his disappointment, his outrage at how fast his stock has crashed in Leftieville, Mass.

Out here in Realville, where Rush Limbaugh is the Mayor, we know that isn't a surprise at all.

The story on that is even worse for Hollywood than someone might think.

Marvel Studios was *going* to cast a Tibetan--their contacts in China told them the government would never allow the movie to be distributed in China, if it contained a sympathetic Tibetan. And Disney would lose out on all that Chinese box office. But they were placated if the Tibetan was played by a white woman.

282 I heard Brando and the director of Last Tango in Paris did not inform the actress of the nature of the sex scene in order to get a more "authentic" performance out of her when he put it in her ass. That was not nice.

Yeah I read that too, seems likely with Brando and his style of acting.

Supposedly in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Judge Reinhold got a huge dildo for his scene when Phoebe is over at the pool. She did not know and her look when she opens the door to see him is the first time she saw it.

The only people who stop? People who paid for their sh*t. She said they barely even look at the receipt because they know if someone stops then they're honest.

311 Probably the movie about the MIT students doing card counting in Vegas.

Funny thing about the actual MIT card counting crew. They intentionally excluded white kids, but not because they were racist.

In Vegas, if you see a white kid throwing around tons of cash, that's not normal and it arouses suspicion.

If you see an Asian kid or an Arab kid throwing around wads of cash, that's commonplace.

If you listen to the left, the only people with money are white. Reality is just a wee bit different, though, and the MIT kids knew it.

367 Luc Besson is very uneven, he makes great movies and stinkers. I can't figure out why, either, there doesn't seem to be a pattern.

I mean he made the Fifth Element, The Professional, and La Femme Nikita. But he also made Big Blue and Valerian. He wrote Taken, the Transporter, and From Paris With Love, but also Columbiana and Kiss of the Dragon.

Kept reminding them: that's why you call it "acting" - be cause you are pretending to be something you're not, and that Scarlett is who got the film funded, it's a business, etc.

This is really true, can you imagine if the casting was done now. Black elves. Asian dwarves.
You can even see how that shit crept in between the making of LOTR and the Hobbit films. When they threw in the Elf girl/dwarf guy love story. Gaahhh!!!

516 By these rules, no gay man or lesbian woman should ever be allowed to play a straight character.

Do the trans activists, gay activists, and social justice warriors agree?


I know it was a rhetorical device, but I am pretty sure you know the answer:

If you are white, straight, and/or "cisgendered" you have "power". The more you are nonwhite, queer, and/or transgendered, the less power you have. This is axiomatically true: a poor white man working two minimum wage jobs has more power than a millionaire rapper, especially if the rapper is publicly bisexual or something. (Which, I don't think I've ever heard of... are there any "queer" rappers who made it big?)

Thus, if a white girl finds a dress in a thrift shop and wears it to her prom, and it turns out the dress is a Chinese style dress, she is guilty of "cultural appropriation"; where a black person can wear any kind of clothes and it's always fine. Hall & Oates are accused of "appropriating" mo-town music, while blacks can perform any kind of music. And so on.

Thus, if a gay person plays a straight character, that is acceptable; even laudable. (Since the gays are disadvantaged, anything that gets them more work is axiomatically a good thing. The hate on Scarlett Johanssen for playing a trans person is partly because if she were truly right-thinking she would have given that acting job to an actual trans person.)

It's insanity, and pointing out that it's crazy won't dissuade these people.

I say, treat everyone well; and hire the best actor you can find for every part; and if a rich actress wants to fund a movie and make herself the star, that's nobody's business but hers.
