Actress Glenn Close just gave the LGBTQ community a serious case of the blues — and probably a few ulcers too — after addressing the recent controversy of “cis-gendered” actors taking on roles as transgender characters.
If you remember, just a little while back Scarlett Johansson was bullied by the radical left for taking on the role of a trans individual to such an egregious extent that she actually dropped the role.
Close, responding to the incident, said that any actor can play any kind of character they choose.
While Close understands that transgender actors feel snubbed, she ultimately feels that producers “should have the opportunity to cast the best person.”
“Acting is a craft,” Close said. “I personally think that anyone should be able to play anyone.”
“To me that’s the real thing, that everybody could play everybody. But I understand why they are so passionate, because this hasn’t happened.”
Close, of course, speaks from personal experience being that she played a woman masquerading as a man in the 2011 film “Albert Nobbs” (for which she received an Oscar nomination). She, however, has never claimed the character was transgender, only that she dressed as a man to get ahead in 19th-century society.
The left, who are supposed to be champions of the free expression of art, are now starting to strangle the craft they helped develop thanks to their out of control obsession with political correctness.
In all honesty, the vast majority of Americans would probably be a-okay without their even being any films or television shows about this subject matter to begin with, seeing as how trans folk are an infinitesimally small portion of the overall population. After all, filmmaking is a business and if you want your business to be successful you cater to the largest portion of your customer base.
Film is a beautiful art form that is too often being utilized to spread an agenda that attempts to normalize abnormal and unhealthy lifestyles and the moviegoing public needs to work toward showing people this is completely and totally unacceptable.
