Eddie Redmayne, known for his roles in „The Theory of everything” and „Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them” decided to retroactively invalidate his role in 2015s „The Danish Girl” where he played a transsexual character, likely due to fears of being dragged by the LGBTQA+ community for it.
With each passing year, the mentioned community adds an additional letter to their repertoire and decides what agenda they’ll use Hollywood and social media to push into the mainstream next.
The latest one would appear to be preventing straight men and women from being cast into roles of characters belonging to their precious gated community.
With Redmayne’s latest statement on the matter, in which he claims that there have been years of „cisgender success” on the backs of trans „stories”, it is very evident they got to him before the common sense community could.
Namely, Redmayne carried the community’s narrative that there should be many trans actors and actresses playing their respective roles, but also the roles of „cis-gendered” characters, which might seem odd given they were so hellbent on preventing the vice-versa from happening ever again.
This „rules for me but not for thee” agenda is common with the LGBTQA+ community and it can be seen every time anything related to them pops up in the media.
Last summer, J.K. Rowling, the famous writer known for her „Harry Potter” series, heavily criticized the community for marginalizing straight biological women by claiming that gender is not a „real” thing” .
This didn’t sit right with the snowflake demographic and they claimed her to be homophobic and transphobic, despite years of her support for the community.
The Monty Python group could be in a lot of trouble for not casting actual knights of the round table
Even Redmayne jumped on the bandwagon despite owing his success and fame largely to the author’s „Fantastical beasts and where to find them” series, in which he played a rogue wizard.
One could argue that he shouldn’t have gotten that role either, because he clearly isn’t a wizard, and his casting is marginalizing the wizarding community.
The same can be applied to many things, and only through these lenses can the absurdity of the entire situation be seen, as the film industry would plummet if only those with „valid” experiences for a certain role should be cast for said role.
Naturally, despite all of Redmayne’s attempts to get on their good side, the community didn’t appreciate his efforts one bit, instead of turning to criticize his role in „the danish girl”, stating that he crammed their „complex” personalities into the regular stereotypical woman.
There’s no telling what similar nonsense may pop up next, but Hollywood should definitely be on the lookout for some extraterrestrials if they want the next sci-fi hit to be „valid”
