No. No to the first one. People need to realize that, in the words of the amazing Kerry Washington, “actors are artists of transformation.” When you say that only trans people can play trans characters, then that’s limiting the entire scope of what actors and actresses are capable of, which is already the biggest issue in Hollywood. If you say that, then black actors and actresses would be non-existent because most roles are made with white actors in mind, which is just wrong. That’s saying that women can’t play male roles. If that were the case, we wouldn’t have such outstanding displays of acting such as Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan in “I’m Not There.” That’s saying that adults can’t play child roles, which if that were the case, we would have no tv shows for children and channels like Disney and Nickelodeon wouldn’t be where they are. Limiting roles to only people who reflect those roles in real life completely DEFEATS THE POINT OF ACTING. So if all of Hollywood was a close-minded as the person who created this post, then the only kinds of films we’d have are freaking documentaries. I understand, completely and passionately, the need for there to be more trans representation in the media from people who are actually trans. And that applies to representation of gays, lesbians, etc as well. But no, we can’t limit what actors are capable of just because of the current lack of representation. That’s damaging and fatal to the film industry. Life isn’t so black and white, people.
no more cis men playing trans women
no more equating trans women to men because they have the same genitals at birth
no more cis men getting awards for trans women roles while actual trans women are getting ignored
more trans women playing cis women. more trans women being treated like women instead of men in makeup. more trans women.
lmao y’all are going IN tonight

the good thing about me is that you can not talk to me for 3 weeks and then talk to me and I’ll be fine and still care about you the same way I did before
the bad thing is that I do that to people and they don’t understand that sometimes I just don’t feel like interacting with people.
