A-Lister Buckles To LGBTQ Mob Over Role
Actress Scarlett Johansson gave up a role where she planning to play the role of a trans-man. The LGBTQ community lashed out at her for taking a role that they felt, should go to one of their own kind.
“And after a furious backlash from her recent comments, she has capitulated again, explaining that her remarks had been “edited for click bait” and “widely taken out of context.” She reiterated that she, of course, understands the needs and demands of the LGBTQ community.”
“The argument — more screamed than expressed — is that because Johansson is not transgender, when she accepts the role of a trans person she is both insulting the trans community by appropriating their lived experience and robbing them of the opportunity to play themselves.
The sheer narcissism of this is breathtaking. Films are premised on the concept of people pretending to be others in order to tell a story. In other words, the focus isn’t supposed to be on the actors. When the actual subject is on screen, we call it a “documentary” or a “reality show.”
As for appropriation — well, frankly, where does it end? Must all Jewish characters be played by Jews? Must one-legged Spanish kings be played by one-legged Spanish kings? And in the context of the trans debate, are trans people to be excluded from playing “cis” people?”
This is just more of that “inclusive” behavior they are always talking about. They feel that everyone needs to abide by their wants and needs. So does that mean only straight people can play straight roles now? If that is the case that will limit the roles for members of the LGBTQ.
But I guess that would discriminating and for some reason, only they can to do that.
The LGBTQ went off the rails after they found out a straight man played Elton John too. The difference is Elton John told them to shut up, and they listened.
