Transface vs Blackface and how they are the same and different.

Transface vs Blackface and how they are the same and different.

Hollywood still doesn’t seem to understand a man playing a transwoman (transface) is no better than blackface. (I want to be clear that this is for different reasons but still just as bad.) I get that there is a smaller pool of trans actresses to choose from. That’s not to say they couldn’t find one […]

Re(Assignment) premieres with Michelle Rodriguez in a transface tragedy

Re(Assignment) premieres with Michelle Rodriguez in a transface tragedy

Clutching her vagina screaming “NO” after punitive penis removal, a bloodied and “Sewer Stained” Re(Assignment) ‘victim’ cisgender actress Michelle Rodriguez believes trans people shouldn’t criticize her transface role because she is bisexual. The Guardian gave (Re)Assignment one star as “a strong contender for 2016’s worst movie” at the opening at the Toronto film festival Wednesday. […]

Matt Bomer to star in “Anything” as a trans sex worker

Matt Bomer to star in “Anything” as a trans sex worker

ANYTHING but transgender. Bomer is a middle-aged obviously white privileged cisgender male. That Bomer could cast as a female sex worker boggles this transgender mind.  But most Hollywood reports about ANYTHING remain inbounds of the unspoken cis-normative boundary without mention that once again a cisgender MAN has been cast to play a transgender woman.

Oscars Skit with Tracy Morgan doing TransFace A Massive Fail

Last night during the Oscars Good Morning America tweeted one of the most transphobic skits since the ‘Estro-Maxxx’ debacale.

The skit was offensive on so many levels, Tracy Morgan is not transgender […]

Rachel Dolezal is to BLACKFACE what some DRAG QUEENS are to TRANS FACE

She isn’t transracial. She’s not trans anything, She is a white very delusional woman who should really seek help. First my apologies to any and all drag artists I might have offended with the title. There are a lot of drag artists who use their skills without using defamatory language or ill intent. To those […]

Hollywood Transface exploitation continues with Glee’s Coach Shannon Beiste

Hollywood Transface exploitation continues with Glee’s Coach Shannon Beiste

How many times have cisgender actors played transgender roles? With Glee’s latest at least 23 times. Sometimes, the parts were fairly good, but most of the roles were plagued with problematic stereotyping. So coming out as a transman makes you a gay man? That’s what the public is being led to believe. Glee this is so wrong. […]

Michelle Hendley stars in “Boy Meets Girl” a transgender blockbuster

Michelle Hendley stars in “Boy Meets Girl” a transgender blockbuster

Set in the south “Boy Meets Girl” demolishes gender barriers and stereotypes introducing uninitiated cisgender people to the realities of the transgender experience. Hendle told Indie wire why she took the part. For me it seemed like the opportunity of a lifetime. A transgender woman playing the role of a transgender woman in a film […]
