Why can't Scarlett Johansson play a transgender character?

    Scarlett Johansson was cast to play a transgender role in Rub & Tug.

    Recently she pulled out. I don't know whether she jumped or was pushed but trans activists, despite claiming to represent only 0.3% of the population, have quite a powerful voice.

    Do they want a trans actor to play the trans role, is that it?

    If Scarlett Johansson shouldn't play a trans role, does that mean a trans actor shouldn't play a cis role?

    Or does the trans lobby want to have their cake and eat it?

    Strange questions to ask as society starts, if not to disintegrate, then at least not to cohere.

    PS - my opinion is a film director should hire the best actors for the job.

    Her actions have generated a lot of publicity and maybe this was intentional. Personally, I still have no interest in the film.

    It has been asked for decades why Brits would play Egyptians in movies.
    They are MOVIES, for heaven's sake. People should protest with their ticket dollars.

    Because people today have lost their damn minds, and crazy is always louder than rational.

    I don't see what the flap is about, gay people have been portraying straight people in movies for decades and nobody complained.

    Gay people shouldn't be allowed to play heterosexual characters if that's the rule. Will all the actors who won oscars portraying gay characters return them? Is that how it works now?

    Of course it's just the crazy left, getting crazier, eating their own. However "woke" you are, the mob will one day come for you.

    “Actors and actresses should only portray characters that reflect their real life identities, obviously. In this way they won’t really be acting, and therefore won’t be an actor or actress... but this should be the only valid career path for actors and actresses. For those individuals that identify differently we should also have the option to be a “zctor” or “zctress” in which they can act out their real life without be an actor, zctor, or zctress, enriching all of our lives with great acting.”

    So what’s next?

    Actors will no longer be allowed to portray doctors, lawyers, criminals or any other roles unless the have actually been fully trained, licensed and certified as experienced professionals in that field.

    Casting: “Wanna play a killer? You’re gonna have to show me the bodies!

    The left ruins everything, even their own propaganda!
