The push for transgenderism is evidence that liberalism is a mental disorder. Conservatives are often accused of being anti-science.
If you want to know what’s anti-science, it’s transgenderism. Men and women taking hormones and lopping off body parts because they “identify” as one sex or another.
Transgenderism is damaging to women’s sports. Men who identify as women are competing in track and field and weightlifting. What you don’t see is women identifying as men competing in the same sports. They would be crushed.
It’s sad that women have worked hard to establish themselves in sports only to have their sports invaded by the absurdity of transgenderism.
The always aggrieved Left is now up in arms because Scarlett Johansson was hired to play a transgender man in an upcoming film. The “mental disorder” crowd is insisting that a REAL transgender man should play a transgender man in the film.
If a REAL transgender man plays a transgender character in the film, the film will most likely be a flop. It might even be a flop if Scarlett Johansson plays a transgender man. Scarlett Johansson as a transgender is easier to look at than a man who’s pretending to be a woman. Box office receipts matter for some movie studios.
To say things like this will get you in trouble. Consider the case of Daniella Greenbaum who wrote an article critical of the demand that a REAL transgender man plays the lead role in a film about a transgender.
Business Insider ran a column defending actress Scarlett Johansson from fierce criticism for her decision to play a transgender man in a forthcoming film called “Rub and Tug.” The writer, Daniella Greenbaum, took the apparently outrageous position that actors can pretend to be people they are not. Or, as Greenbaum put it, “Scarlett Johansson is the latest target of the social-justice warrior mob. The actress is being chastised for, well, acting.”
The Social Justice Warriors came out in full force against Business Insider for publishing Greenbaum’s article. Just to have a different opinion is no longer acceptable for some people. But Business Insider committed a Social Justice crime for publishing Greenbaum’s article. Business Insider caved and pulled the article, removing it from their website.
Here’s what it was replaced with…
