SJW mob defines new standards for Hollyweird after Scarlett Johansson transgender role outrage

Dante “Tex” Gill (l) and Scarlett Johansson (r)

I know the words “Hollyweird” and “standards” hardly belong together in the same sentence…but here we are.

Scarlett Johansson recently dropped out of a movie called “Rub & Tug” in which she was to play the role of transgender Dante “Tex” Gill. Gill was a woman who lived as a man and was a massage parlor owner. Some say the parlor was a cover for prostitution.

Because Ms. Johansson is not a transgender the SJW mob squad immediately went into action. The international LBGTQ community claimed it was inappropriate for a female cisgender actor to play a female who lived a man.

After a couple days of massive outrage and backlash, Scarlett dropped out of the film saying, “she will no longer be part of the film “in light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting.”

According to The Telegraph:

Johansson initially responded with a statement that criticism “can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto and Felicity Huffman’s reps.” All are cisgender actors who have won acclaim for playing transgender characters.

“Actors who are trans never even get to audition for anything other than roles of trans characters,” Jamie Clayton, a transgender actress who stars in Netflix’s Sense8, said. ”That’s the real issue. We can’t even get in the room.”

Johansson continued with this statement:

“Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive,” she said, adding that she had “great admiration and love for the trans community.”

“While I would have loved the opportunity to bring Dante’s story and transition to life, I understand why many feel he should be portrayed by a transgender person, and I am thankful that this casting debate, albeit controversial, has sparked a larger conversation about diversity and representation in film,” the actress added.”

Transgender actors applauded Johansson’s walkway from the acting role. From News18.com:

“Transgender actors, filmmakers, artistes and activists, who were at The Hollywood Reporter’s office in Los Angeles for a discussion about representation in the entertainment industry, lauded her decision.

“You are awesome,” said Buck Angel, with others expressing relief that the public outcry on behalf of the trans community had been heard and acted upon.

“Scarlett deciding to pull out was a good example of listening to the community and that was the right thing to do,” said Rhys Ernst, an Emmy nominated producer and director known for his work on Transparent*, This is Me and the upcoming feature Adam.

Zackary Drucker, an artiste, cultural producer and filmmaker who has worked on Transparent, said she is hopeful this is a turning point in Hollywood. “We are so troubled and so ravaged by feeling ignored, by feeling exploited, by feeling that our stories are not our own,” she said.”

*FYI: Transparent is the Amazon TV show that employed cisgender Jeffrey Tambor to play a transwoman until he left the show in 2017 after sexual misconduct allegations.

All this outrage has given me a headache: I thought actors were hired based upon their skills to convincingly portray a character? According to the new standards, does that mean only transgender actors can be considered for transgender roles? Does that mean transgenders are not allowed to seek a cisgender role?

Can a homosexual audition for a heterosexual role and vice versa? Are actors now required to only audition for roles that match their gender/sex identity?

What about actors who portray disabled people? Aren’t there disabled actors who have difficulties in obtaining jobs due to the nature of their disability? Is an actor who is not inflicted with a disability allowed to represent a disabled character?

Case in point: Actor Steve Carell will star in an upcoming movie, “Welcome to Marwen,” in which his character struggles with PTSD. From Hollywood Reporter: “The film comes from Academy Award-winning director Robert Zemeckis and is based on a true story. Steve Carell stars as Mark Hogancamp who is attacked by a group of Nazis. After barely surviving the devastating attack, Hogancamp remains traumatized and struggles to carry on his normal life as a World War II illustrator.”

I didn’t find any indication that Carell suffers from PTSD. Is it appropriate for him to take on this role, based upon new LGBTQ standards?

What about producers/writers who make cultural documentaries? Is someone allowed to create a movie about a certain culture without representing that culture? Isn’t that cultural appropriation?

Case in point: The upcoming movie “Cuba,” which focuses on Cuba’s culture, meticulously maintained colonial architecture and pristine ecosystems at a time when the nation is undergoing economic and social change. According to IMDb the movie is produced by Peter H. Chang and is directed by Mose Richards and Robert Mooring, none of whom sound very Cuban to me.

So what’s it going to be, SJWs? Do the new standards apply to all of your social justice grievance categories or just selective ones?

I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for an answer because I know that liberal logic is not designed to make sense.

Cher, 29, raped a 13-year-old boy

Sex with a minor is statutory rape, because the law regards the underage person as too young to be capable of consenting to sexual acts. It does not matter if the perpetrator believed that the victim was of the age of consent because Mistake of Fact is no defense in a statutory rape case.

The age of consent — the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity — varies by state. In the state of California, the age of consent is 18 years old, which means that an adult who had sex with a minor can be prosecuted for statutory rape.

In psychology, overreaction is defined as “a response, specifically an emotional reaction, which goes beyond a proper level.” Being exaggerated and off-the-scale, overreaction is an irrational response to a stimulus, which points to some underlying dynamics within the individual’s psychology.

The overreaction of so many rabidly unhinged anti-Trumpers indicates they feel threatened by President Trump as he systematically fulfills his campaign promises to the Americans who’d voted for him — those whom Hillary Clinton contemptuously demonized as “deplorables”.

Some anti-Trumpers have a personal stake in that they have done (and may still be doing) deeds that can put them in prison. As an example, even before Trump was inaugurated President, actor Robert De Niro threatened to “punch him in the face”. Though a 74-year-old senior citizen, De Niro takes every opportunity in public venues to hurl invectives at a duly-elected sitting President, calling Trump “blatantly stupid,” “a punk,” “a dog,” “a pig,” “a con,” “a mutt,” “a bullshit artist,” “an idiot,” “mentally ill,” “soulless,” “son of a bitch,” and “Hitler” — always a favorite cliche-insult of the Left.

It should be noted that De Niro was a client of an international prostitution ring with underage girls.

Another senior-citizen actress, 72-year-old Cher, is also a rabid anti-Trumper. In 2016, while campaigning for Hillary, Cher called Trump “a fucking idiot” and wielded another of the Left’s perennial insults — that of racism, claiming that what Trump means by “Make America Great Again” is really “We want to make America straight and white”.

Note: Both De Niro and Cher are high school drop outs. Donald Trump is a graduate of the private boarding school, New York Military Academy, and has a Bachelor of Science degree in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. So much for Trump being an “idiot”.

It is of some interest to learn that, like De Niro, Cher also has a personal stake in thwarting President Trump.

Crazy Days and Nights (CDAN) is a Hollywood gossip website that has been described by The Daily Beast as having a track record of accuracy, and by investigative journalist Mark Ebner as “being proven right again and again”.

Yesterday, July 3, 2018, Crazy Days and Nights published a “Blind Item Revealed” identifying Cher as the “permanent A list singer” who raped a 13-year-old boy in 1975:

This permanent A list singer who is also an Oscar winner/nominee says, “it was a different time,” to explain why she would have sex with underage boys. She said that lots of men in music were doing the same thing to girls at the time and it was a different world where it was acceptable.

Cher/Anthony Kiedis (he was 13 and she was 29)

Anthony Keidis, now 55, is the lead singer and lyricist of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers. He was raised by his mother in Grand Rapids, Michigan. In 1974, when he was 11 years old, the boy moved to Hollywood to live permanently with his father, actor John Michael Kiedis.

The late entertainer Sonny Bono was a close friend of John Kiedis and godfather to Anthony. Bono’s then-wife Cher babysat Anthony.

According to an account of Anthony Kiedis by Lisa Flowers in Ranker:

  • His father was a drug dealer and introduced Anthony to drugs at a young age.
  • His dad used him as a drug-mule: “Not long after Kiedis moved to Los Angeles in 1974, his dad took him on a drug dealing trip to Kenosha, Wisconsin.” The returned to Los Angeles with $30,000 in cash. As Anthony recounts in his autobiography Scar Tissue, “My dad told me I’d be carrying the money, because if they caught someone who looked like him with all that money, he’d be busted for sure… so we rigged a belt piece, stuffed it with cash, and taped it to my abdomen.”
  • Anthony lost his virginity at 12 to his dad’s 18-year-old girlfriend, which was set up by his dad.
  • Cher was Anthony’s baby-sitter: “When Anthony was in eighth grade, Cher, who was separated from Sonny by then, offered to babysit. He and Cher enjoyed their evening together, engaging in an hours-long chat and really getting to know one another. Then Kiedis went to bed, and Cher got ready to do the same. Believing Kiedis to be asleep, Cher took off all her clothes. From his nearby bed, Anthony watched…. Cher put on a nightgown and got into bed with Anthony. And the two spent the night sleeping side-by-side.”

Now we know from CDAN that 29-year-old Cher did more than sleep side-by-side with 13-year-old Anthony. It is not just CDAN, according to Elle, Anthony Kiedis states in Scar Tissue that Cher was his first sexual encounter, when he was 13.

Simply put, Cher is a sexual predator — a pedophile. Pedophilia is legally defined as any sexual activity with a minor below the age of consent.

Cher also enabled the statutory rape of her own daughter, Chastity, who now identifies as “transgender” Chaz.

Chaz Bono said “his” first sexual experience was as a teen “girl” with Cher’s best friend, who was Cher’s age.

There really is a left-wing media conspiracy: Another secret journalist group discovered

conspiracy theory

The Mainstream Media like to make fun of conspiracy theories. Never mind the facts that:

The MSM’s dismissal-by-derision of conspiracy theories is another instance of the Left’s penchant for psychological projection. It turns out that it is the left-wing media who conspire with each other.

In July 2010, we found out about JournoList — a listserv created by Vox Media Editor-at-Large Ezra Klein, comprised of several hundred liberal journalists from reputable news outlets, as well as like-minded professors and activists, who conspired during the 2008 presidential campaign to protect Barack Obama, their favored candidate.

Note: A listserv is an electronic mailing list software application that acts as  an automated mailing list manager by enabling a sender to email all subscribers to the list via just one email.

According to the Daily Caller, the conspiratorial JournoList group “included dozens of straight-news reporters from major news organizations, including Time, Newsweek, The Associated Press, Reuters, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Politico, Bloomberg, Huffington Post, PBS and a large NPR affiliate in California.” (More here.)

Now, another conspiratorial left-wing journalist group has been uncovered by Harron Walker, a freelance contributor to the left-wing blog, Jezebel, after private messages posted by New York magazine journalist Jesse Singal were leaked. In existence for at least 8 years, with more than 400 members, the group is an “off-the-record” private discussion group for left-wing journalists hosted on Google Groups, similar to JournoList.

Walker writes on June 27, 2018:

Singal posted these messages in the discussion forum of a closed listserv he belongs to, hosted on Google Groups. The listserv, per its “About” page, aims to provide an “off-the-record discussion forum for left-of-center journalists, authors, academics and wonks”. It has been around for at least eight years (I found discussion posts dating back as far as 2010), and has just over 400 members (403 at the time of this writing). These members include New York Times best-selling authors, Ivy League academics, magazine editors, and other public intellectualsin short, a lot of important people who influence public discourse through their written work. They use the listserv’s forum to discuss current events, news from their respective fields, articles they’ve read, articles they’ve written, and other topics of public importance.

You’re probably wondering why Harron Walker, a left-wing blogger, would have issues with left-wing journalist Singal or his secret left-wing media group. That’s because Walker, who identifies itself as “transgender” and calls itself a “sweatiness girl,” is unhappy with Singal because the journalist recently wrote an article in The Atlantic on “gender desistance”—people who realize they’re not “transgenders” despite earlier declarations to the contrary. As for Singal’s secret group, Walker is miffed with the group because “None of these discussions brought trans voices to the table because the group has never had any out trans members, at least as far as I can tell.”

Charlie Nash of Breitbart notes that in addition to JournoList and the “new” group discovered by Walker:

“There have also been other secret journalist groups, such as Cabalist and GameJournoPros, the latter of which served as a group for left-wing games industry journalists who sought to mold the industry politically. GameJournoPros included journalists from Polygon, Ars Technica, Wired, Eurogamer, Destructoid, Kotaku, Joystiq, TechRadar, Associated Press, CNBC, USA Today, Vice’s Motherboard, VentureBeat, and CNet. Executive employees from games publishers were also present in the list.”

All of which would explain why TV news all sound the same. See “Who’s writing the script for TV news across America?“.

No wonder more than two-thirds of Americans, a full 72%, believe “traditional news outlets knowingly report false or misleading stories,” according to a recent poll. Only 25% of Americans (that many?) believe the media “rarely” or “never” deliberately report fake news.

More Democrat psychopathy: Red Hen owner pursued Sanders in-laws to another restaurant; burnt decapitated animal on DHS employee’s front porch

Last Friday night, June 23, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her in-laws went to The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA.

There, restaurant owner Stephanie Wilkinson told Ms. Sanders to leave, ostensibly because restaurant employees object to Sanders’ presence because of President Trump’s no transgenders in the U.S. military policy and his  “immigration policy” determination to actually implement federal laws on illegal border-crossing.

See “Liberal Tolerance: Red Hen restaurant kicks out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders

It must be noted that what the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the  Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision allowing unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.”

But Wilkinson wasn’t content with kicking Sanders out of The Red Hen.

According to Governor Mike Huckabee, Wilkinson actually followed Sanders’ in-laws to another restaurant across the street, and organized a protest outside while the in-laws were dining.

Meanwhile, around two dozen threats were made in the past few days, primarily against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. Leftwing psychopaths also doxxed thousands of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees and released their personally identifiable information on social media.

Where’s the outcry from PETA and the Humane Society?

On Saturday, June 23, Acting Deputy Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Claire M. Grady issued a memo warning DHS employees to stay on alert because of “specific and credible threats that have been levied against certain DHS employees and a sharp increase in the overall number of general threats against DHS employees.” The memo recommends DHS employees to “always keep doors and windows locked, be aware of unexpected changes” at their homes and “utilize maximum security setting on social media platforms.”  (Washington Times)

CNN celebrates Father’s Day with a father who gave birth to a son

Today is Father’s Day.

CNN celebrates Father’s Day by publishing an article extolling a father who gave birth to his son.

By this time, your eyebrows probably are raised high as you exclaim: “But how can a man conceive and give birth?”

Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s immortal creation, famously said: “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

And so it is with CNN’s father who gave birth to a son, which is a biological impossibility because only females can conceive and give birth.

It turns out that the “father” whom CNN honors on Father’s Day is a mentally-ill woman who conceived and gave birth to a son, but who imagines herself to be “transgender”. So, she changed her name to Sabastian, had her breasts surgically excised, and takes massive doses of testosterone to “transition” into a man — which, of course, is a biological impossibility.

Sabastian Sparks

Hank Berrien reports for The Daily Wire, June 15, 2018, that “Just in time for Father’s Day, CNN brings you the story of” a very confused and confusing couple in suburban Atlanta — Sabastian Sparks, 24, a biological female who calls herself a transgender man, and Angel Sparks, 33, a biological male who calls himself a transgender woman. Angel is a “multi-faith minister”.

After Sabastian began taking “gender-transition” testosterone, she conceived a child with Angel, who was already “transitioning” into a “transgender” woman but stopped taking hormones long enough that they could conceive a son.

Angel Sparks

Below are excerpts from Kendall Trammell’s CNN article, “He gave birth. He breastfed. Now, he wants his son to see him as a man”:

Sabastion, 24, is a transgender man who lives with his wife Angel in suburban Atlanta. Assigned the female gender at birth, he began transitioning five years ago. It’s a process that felt more complete last month when he had surgery to remove his breasts.

Sabastion Sparks gave birth to son Jaxen in October 2016.

With Father’s Day approaching, Sabastion finds himself thinking about gender roles and what it means to be a dad. He wants Jaxen, their 20-month-old son, to have as normal a childhood as possible….

By the time Sabastion met Angel five years ago at a convention for transgender people, he identified as a man. Angel, 33, was designated male at birth but had transitioned years earlier.

They both knew they wanted to be parents. After they were married in 2016, they agreed that Sabastion would carry their child — a decision, Angel Sparks says, that wasn’t taken lightly.

Like many transgender men and women, they had been taking medication to increase the testosterone or estrogen in their bodies. So to make a baby, they briefly stopped taking their hormone pills….

After breastfeeding his son, Sabastion Sparks had his breasts removed in May….

[T]here are some things Sabastion wants to teach Jaxen, father to son. One of them is how to pee standing up — something Sabastion does with the help of a detachable prosthetic….

“People think trans people can’t be good parents, and that’s not true,” Sabastion adds. “Trans parents are just like any other parents.”

The world has gone mad . . . .

Virginia school board: No such thing as biological male/female genders

Yesterday, DCG published a post on Australia considering a ban on the terms “boy” and “girl” in children’s book.

But it’s not just Australia.

A county school board in the disUnited States of America means to radically overhaul public schools’ sex-education curriculum to say that there is no such thing as birth or biological gender, which means children are not born male or female. Instead, gender is fluid.

The Baphomet is transgender: neither male nor female

Cathy Ruse reports for Family Research Council, May 15, 2018, that public school students in Fairfax County, Virginia, are subjected to 80 hours of “Family Life Education” sex ed — on the kids’ evolving “sexual identity,” the proper handling of contraceptive drugs and devices, and how to give consent for sex.

But Fairfax County’s longtime Democrat-controlled school board is set to take things from bad to worse.

In early May, the school board — whose members include a 9th-grade student in braces — voted enthusiastically for the following changes to the sex-ed curriculum, recommended by a committee of hand-picked sex-ed advisors. Only three board members voted against the changes. The revised curriculum will be thrusted on every student unless their parents specifically say no.

These are the changes:

  1. Teach Fairfax kids they weren’t born male or female. The term “biological sex” will be replaced by the gender-fluid term, “sex assigned at birth.” As one sex-ed advisor explained: “Biological sex is meaningless!”
  2. Teach 7th and 8th grade students to embrace transgender identity, but don’t tell them about the health risks and side-effects of “gender transitioning.”
  3. Teach every high school student about Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis or PrEP — a daily drug regimen for people “at very high risk” of contracting HIV, who are identified by the CDC as men who have sex with men without condoms. But the students will not be told that the FDA has not approved PrEP for children under 18, or that leading AIDs experts warn that PrEP will lead to a public health catastrophe for encouraging risky sex.
  4. Stop telling students about abstinence — that it is the only 100% effective method to prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). At the school board meeting, the sex-ed advisors mocked abstinence education.
  5. Teach students how to use every available contraceptive drug, device and cream, without telling them about health risks or side effects.
  6. Strip parents of their right to opt their kids out of an 8th grade lesson on dating and family.
  7. Strip the word “clergy” from the list of trusted adults whom students might consult about their sexual identity concerns.

The full report on the proposed revisions to the sex-ed curriculum is available on Board Docs.

Fairfax County School Board members are elected for 4-year terms; one member represents each of the County’s nine magisterial districts, and three members serve at large. A student representative, selected for a one-year term by the Student Advisory Council, sits with the Board at all public meetings and participates in discussions, but does not vote. School Board members are paid a salary of $32,000 per year. The Chairman is paid an additional $2,000 per year.

Fairfax County School Board will vote on the changes at a school board meeting on June 14. The board is soliciting comments from the public about the proposed changes. The deadline for comments is June 8.

To comment on the proposed changes, email FLEcomments@fcps.edu.
