SFGate: the Daily Dish ^ | 7/31/12

Posted on 07/31/2012 10:23:07 PM PDT by SmithL

Director Larry Wachowski has publicly revealed that she is transgender and now goes by the name Lana in a new promo for her upcoming Tom Hanks film “Cloud Atlas.”

The 47-year-old moviemaker has undergone a sex change operation and now goes by the name Lana.

With her hair in pink dreadlocks, Wachowski introduced herself for the first time as a woman in a behind-the-scenes trailer for the new drama, saying, “Hi, I’m Lana.”

This is what they now need to do to keep their Hollweird careers going. Just putting on a dress is not enough. Next will be animal parts. Eventually they will advance to intelligent slime and live in their fancy backyard pools.

MRS. GARRISON
Hello doctor, looks like I need an abortion.

DOCTOR
...an abortion?

MRS. GARRISON
Yeah, I’ve got one growing inside me.
Now, are you gonna scramble its brains
or just vacuum it out? ...If you want
you can just scramble it and I’ll queef
it out myself.

DOCTOR
Mmister Garrison-

MRS. GARRISON
Mrs. Garrison.

DOCTOR
Mmrs. Garrison, you can’t have an abortion.

MRS. GARRISON
Don’t you tell me what I can and can’t
do with my body! A woman has a right
to choose!

DOCTOR
No, I mean you’re physically unable
to have an abortion, because you can’t
get pergnant.

MRS. GARRISON
But I missed my period.

DOCTOR
You can’t have periods either. You
had a sex change, Mr. Garrison, but
you don’t have ovaries or a womb. You
don’t produce eggs.

MRS. GARRISON
You mean, I’ll never know what it feels
like to have a baby growing inside me
and then scramble its brains and vacuum
it out?

DOCTOR
N-that’s right.

MRS. GARRISON
But I paid five thousand dollars to
be a woman. This would mean I I’m not
really a woman. Ih, I’m just a... a
I’m just a guy with a mutilated penis!

DOCTOR
Basically, yes.

MRS. GARRISON
...Oh boy, do I feel like a jackass.

Good point. It would make more sense going the other way.

Tons of emotional and physical pain, a fortune in medical bills, all for -- that? Gulp.

I hope he finds peace of mind somehow.

Director Larry Wachowski has publicly revealed that she is transgender

No doubt the SF Gate style guide says the gender of pronouns should be based on the subject's chosen sexual identity and not their DNA.

Does that mean he cut off his wiener and had to get a new driver's license?

I don’t know (or really want to know) much about the transgender lifestyle, but there are two transgender men who live in my area, both are over 40. Is this a common age of transgenderism? I mean, to me, it almost seems like a mid-life crisis type thing.

DNA still male. Sorry that you were anally raped as a young boy and are now totally insane, “Lana,” but you are not and will never be a woman no matter how much you mutilate yourself.
