Apologies for playing a trans character...

Submitted July 9, 2020, 3:53 p.m. by ttvelvet

So how come Halle Berry has to back out of a movie role and apologize publicly for wanting to play a ftm... but absolutely anyone can play a lesbian? I swear, the power of the cult is real. She actually apologised. Uh, sorry for wanting to portray someone from your community you ungrateful manchildren.

you ungrateful manchildren.

She was going to play a "trans man". The backlash came from her using female pronouns for the character.

“She’s a character in a project I love that I might be doing,” added Berry. “I want to experience that world, understand that world… Who this woman was is so interesting to me, and that will probably be my next project, and that will require me cutting all of my hair off.” “That’s what I want to experience and understand and study and explore,” continued Berry. “It’s really important to me to tell stories, and that’s a woman, that’s a female story — it changes to a man, but I want to understand the why and how of that. I want to get into it.”

Which is still ridiculous.

Some people on twitter think the trans character might be Stormé DeLarverie since she used female pronouns etc ... I hope not.
