I guess she didn't want to lie ?  

What does it say about someone if the first thing that comes to their mind is "just lie" to fix the situation ?

It wouldn't have mattered. Everyone would have been happy, because she would have been trans for the duration of the filming.  As far as I can tell, honesty isn't an issue with self identification.  She could have re-self identified afterwards.

Except they get beaten and abused more, mostly because some types, such as Christians, think they are lower than everyone else.  Then they 'save' the people in general and abuse them even more.   

Everyone in the LB....  community gets beaten and abused more.  I suppose.  I haven't checked with absolutely everyone.  The thing is, they don't mind doing it to each other if there's something they don't like about them.  Just like everyone else.

I guess if you think lying is just something to do to solve a problem, I agree.

Maybe, there's another reason why Scarlet Johannson bowed out of the trans movie.  It could've been a well-calculated move.

Anyway......why are lesbians playing heterosexual roles?   Ellen de Generes (with that old chick flick, Mr Wrong)

Like Jodie Foster?  Ellen Page?  Cynthia Nixon?

 

Surely, there are gazillion heterosexual A-lister actors who can play them!  So why Foster, Nixon and Page?
