10 trans actors who weren’t offered Jared Leto’s role in “Dallas Buyers Club.”
This is violence against our community.
It is social violence, for it reinforces, nay, makes explicit the idea that “trans women are men.” If it does NOT say this, then why are there not more cis women being played by cis men in cinema?
It is economic violence as well, for it takes jobs THAT ARE OURS and gives them instead to cis men.
These are just ten CELEBRATED women who could have played that role, who could have had a shot at OSCAR gold tonight. And he took that from them.
