The Real Question…

GLAAD: Will your straight male actor impersonating a transsexual female character present an award at our fundraising gala?
Rep: Yes
GLAAD: Will your studio/network/production company/client donate to our “non”profit or sponsor our event?
Rep: Yes
GLAAD: Will your straight male actor include in his speech about all the great work GLAAD is doing?
Rep: Yes
GLAAD: Will you invite a bunch a straight celebs to our event?
Rep: Yes
GLAAD: Then we don’t see any reason to give voice to the many transsexual women who have an issue with a straight white man playing a transsexual female character in The Danish Girl, Transparent and Dallas Buyers Club
Rep: Glad we could work it out, GLAAD
GLAAD: Don’t worry about the ‘angry uppity tr*nny’ journalists voicing dissent, they’ll get over it. We’ll also ensure our contacts at the white LGB “news” sources censor their voices
Rep: Perfect. Expect the check in the mail next week
GLAAD: Fabulous. Also, please have your straight male actor arrive early on the red carpet to take a photo with our LGB executive director and all white LGB board members. We need the photo op for our news letter
Rep: Of course, we knew we could count on you GLAAD
GLAAD: You scratch our back, we’ll scratch yours. Nice conducting business with you

…is whether this conversation (‘transcribed’ by Ashley Love on Facebook) took place even before the Oscar nominations were announced, or whether it occurred later in the day.

  1. I hear that Eddie Redmayne and Jared Leto will be replacing Jenny Boylan and Caitlyn Jenner on I Am Cait.

    The producers think it will enhance verisimilitude. This may be one of the few times where this type of casting decision actually enhances authenticity and integrity.
