What’s most shocking for me is how well these people know themselves. How can you be so sure? Aren’t you always questioning yourself in some way? It’s amazing to be so steadfast, to just say, “I’m going to go through this insane hormonal treatment and then I’m going to have this surgery.”—
If you ever need an example of how “insane” can be dismissive and ableist, regardless of intent, here you go.
Chloe Sevigny is playing a trans woman assassin for some show. Trans women can’t even get jobs playing themselves.
Chloe can go get drowned. Fucking hate this hateful bigoted cis cunts stealing our lives to make their money and our actresses can’t get shit.
What. The. Fuck. ugh this is so GROSS.
Wait really? She’s going to play a trans person again? She’s also the one who played Brandon Teena in Boys Don’t Cry. If she thinks so little of trans people, why the hell does she keep playing us?
It seems like every time a cis person plays a trans person in a movie, they then have to assure other cis people that, don’t worry, it’s just a job and they’re still capable of sneering at us to expected standards. It’s bad enough that trans characters always get played by cis people, but you’d think they could at least try to find cis people who aren’t complete assholes.
