Casting transgender actors in trans roles will make films better – don’t we all want that?

Casting transgender actors in trans roles will make films better – don’t we all want that?

Last week, actress Halle Berry revealed on social media that she’d been considering a new film role, where she’d play a transgender man.

 

It was frustrating and tiring to hear.

 

After receiving strong criticism from the trans community and their allies, however, the actress released a statement saying that she was no longer pursuing the role, and that transgender people should have an opportunity to ‘tell their own stories’.

 

It was a hugely positive move, showing us that some actors are willing to take on feedback and show allyship, and made me feel hopeful that the conversation about trans representation on screen might finally be moving forward.

Are movies about reality? Or is it about showing something to the viewer which they think is kind of reality?

 

Some time ago I saw a movie about all the things which happen regularly in movies. I.e. bombs are always ticking. And they always have red numbers counting down. Is that realistic? Probably not.

And all computers have lots of flashing lights and clicking keyboards - fiction!

 

So what will any movie with a transgender person show the viewer? The real life of a transgender person? Or what the viewer is supposed to accept - played by any actor?

does this mean that in order to ensure the accuracy of the film, that gay or transgender or whatever must not be hired to play straight roles?

 

will there be a test during casting?  what sort of documentation must be provided?

 

what happens if this is an historical drama, and the main subject's genderocity is questioned by some historians?  will there be a pool of actors with publicly questionable identities to pull from?

 

and what about the people behind the camera?  should it now be required that all film crew be white, male and french?  anything less would be cultural appropriation.

Sure, why not? If these weirdos and their movies disgust me then I'll just avoid them. No need to stamp my little feet on social meedja and let leftie imbeciles know how I've been wronged.
