Skip to comments.The War On Traditional Gender Identity
Posted on 08/10/2018 10:49:14 AM PDT by Kaslin
The Political Correctness Police, starting with the perpetually victimized GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and a group called 50/50 by 2020, are trying to impose quotas on everything Hollywood does.
Leftist fascism is not on the march. It is galloping.
They are part of an open letter signed by titans of the Hollywood left that demands an "unprecedented cultural moment." They demand the entertainment elite "use its power to improve the lives of trans people by changing America's understanding about who trans people are." GLAAD claims there were no transgender characters in 109 movies released by major studios in 2017, and that there were only 17 recurring and regular TV characters out of 901. Hollywood is always lagging behind its idea of diversity.
Both major Hollywood trade publications -- first the Hollywood Reporter and now Variety -- have run major cover-story packages in the last month stacking up bleeding-heart anecdotes of the terrible injustice done to "trans actors," starting with the idea that "cisgender" actress Scarlett Johansson was going to play a transgender woman in the movie "Rub & Tug." The outrage caused the movie star to withdraw.
Stop for just a second. No one gives a damn about this except them.
"Transparent" series creator Jill Soloway, who identifies as "nonbinary" and prefers the personal pronouns "they" and "them," is now horrified that she cast Jeffrey Tambor to star in her transgender show. That decision "was born out of my ignorance," Soloway lamented. "I had to have my education in public."
Stop again. Are you following this?
We're all apparently in need of education, and the rules change daily. No one is allowed to oppose "trans-inclusive" casting and propaganda. This campaign for the "normalization" of this attack on nature is also extending to our social media experience.
See Facebook's hate-speech handbook: "We define hate speech as a direct attack on people based on what we call protected characteristics -- race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender, gender identity, and serious disease or disability." What's an attack? "We define attack as violent or dehumanizing speech, statements of inferiority, or calls for exclusion or segregation," it says.
When they start judging what's "dehumanizing" or "exclusion," it's easy to understand how traditional values -- not to mention traditional biology and grammar -- will be punished. Catholics, that means you. But then again, wouldn't that be an attack based on religious affiliation?
The same punitive urge drives Twitter. Conservative Kathleen McKinley recently wrote on The Federalist that Twitter suspended her account and directed her to delete a tweet opposing transgender troops in the military. McKinney tweeted against "normalizing a mental disorder (gender dysphoria) (called "distress" now) which has no place in our military. Certainly not our $$ for surgery."
Twitter also flagged a tweet in which she insisted you can't ignore "extreme Muslim beliefs that condone honor killings!" Twitter said, "You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease." These tweets were not promotions of violence, threats or harassment. They were dissent.
These tech giants claim to care about religious affiliation, but they seem more fixated on someone criticizing Islam. They don't care about criticism or exclusion of religious majorities.
Christians are apparently offensive when relying on Scriptures that states the Creator "made them male and female." In their unholy writ of Political Correctness, our Creator needs to be educated. God needs to be corrected in an "unprecedented cultural moment." Christians will be ostracized by media outlets based on their faith -- not just in TV and movies but on their social media.
.” GLAAD claims there were no transgender characters in 109 movies released by major studios in 2017, and that there were only 17 recurring and regular TV characters out of 901.”
That’s because normal people don’t want to see that crap. You will not normalize it. You will try, but you will fail.
I’ve ___ALWAYS___ hated the songs “Lola”, “Rebel Rebel” and “Take a Walk on the Wild Side”.
.... and I grew up in the 70s.
If people don’t want to see such movies and TV, what can they do?
They can’t force us to watch TV and movies with these types of characters.
How well did those movies about Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Obamas when they were dating do at the box office?
There are just certain movies that people will.not go see.
In 2011, Soloway married music supervisor Bruce Gilbert, with whom Soloway had been in a relationship since 2008. They have a son named Felix Soloway Gilbert. Soloway's older son, Isaac, is from a prior relationship with artist John Strozier. In 2015, Soloway announced being in the process of separating from Gilbert, and that Soloway was in a relationship with poet Eileen Myles, whom Soloway met through Transparent; their romantic relationship has since ended, and Myles and Soloway held an event at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, in which they "processed [their] relationship onstage."
They have no idea how insanely idiotic and self delusional that reads for normal individuals.
I recognize only male and female...and the occasional hermaphroditic oddity having actually seen a few in the Army Medical Corps.
[and Myles and Soloway held an event at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, in which they “processed [their] relationship onstage.”]
“Processed”, eh? Is that what they call it these days?
I take it you're not referring to Lola by the Chessmen (1961), Rebel by Carol Jarvis (1957) or Walk on the Wild Side by Brook Benton (1962). Those '70's titles are probably something that I would rather not hear.
The '70's spanned my teens and 20's, but I only followed the contemporary music scene haphazardly.
The differences between the sex's is equally obvious from our looks, our interests, our tastes, etc etc etc. Just because someone puts on a party dress or mens pants does not change the obvious no matter what their deviant minds are telling them.
The fact we are dressing up little boys in woman's glamor poses and telling them this is ok just shows how far we have fallen in the West.
I understand who trans people are.
They refuse to accept their own biology and demand that the rest of us indulge their delusions.
They missed John Wick 2, then, with its mute and non-binary character "Ares" played by self-proclaimed non-binary act-it Ruby Rose.
There are now articles being published by these lunatics about how heterosexuals not wanting to date transsexuals constitutes some sort of bigotry.
How long until the lawsuits on these grounds?
If you thought “Bake the Cake or else” was bad...
Isn’t it hilarious how the lunatic left-wing fringe accuses conservatives of “denying science” when we express skepticism about man-made global warming — and in the very same breath, they claim that a man can change into a woman?
I recognize male and female sexes. However, since they keep trying to misapply the term *Gender* to everything under the sun, that also includes two more choices: masculine or feminine.
Boy, do the fat, ugly females hate it when you refer to them as *feminine!*
“Traditional Gender Identity”
No need for that. There is truth and fact: two sexes, determined at conception. Anything else is delusion.
I’m not familiar with Lou Reed, and am not a fan of David Bowie, Also the Kinks mean nothing to me.
