Twat is indeed twat

Prominent trans activist Paris Lees criticised Redmayne’s casting in 2015, saying: “What right does Eddie Redmayne have playing a transgender woman?

Ms. Lees, do you understand the word “actor”? The verb “to act”? It means “pretending to be what you are not for dramatic purposes”.

Once you grasp that basic bit of the English language you should be able to work out the rest.

  1. Reading the article, more an attempt by Ms.Bell to try and Cancel Redmaines’ upcoming gig by stirring up old cesspits.
    Or claw herself out of the pit of mediocrity and despair she finds herself in in her job, judging by the few articles with her name on it that’s made it past the editors.
    Or both.

    It’s “funny” enough how something that made it to a nomination in the most sanctimonious Wokefest on the planet only a couple years hence now requires “apologies” for “inappropriateness”.
    We’ve truly arrived at the Byzantine stage of decline..

  2. Time to go totally true to life. Star Wars films can only use actors born in another galaxy, murder mysteries must hire real murderers who actually kill the victims, Hamlet can only be played by Danish actors whose fathers were kings. A couple of years of no acting jobs whatsoever and the luvvies would be begging to play someone they’re not like.

  3. @Arthur Wouldn’t there soon be a dearth of danish princes willing to even attempt plays by the greatest british hack?
    After all, the attrition rate would be… concerning.
    Good way to get rid of your own unwanted royals, though…

  4. @Grikath: I’m more worried about the implications of genetically engineering weavers to have donkey’s heads.

  5. So, let’s see if I’ve got this straight: a man pretending to be a woman objects to another man playing the part of a man pretending to be a woman. Is that right?

  6. It’s odd that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is still getting away with its “Oscars” ceremonies: the “Oskettes” are seriously overdue

  7. An end of crawling around smearing themselves with Marxist bullshit is what’s due.

    This–ie woke/trannie/race shite– is a massive attack on our culture which is sabotage far more effective than blowing up railway lines. Rails can be repaired but total confusion and a head full of vague nonsense as to who you are and wear/what you come from cannot.

    Time it was treated as the sabotage it is. And not by the fucking useless scum of Johnson’s gang pretending to be the UK govt de jour. They are a prime example of the infection in themselves.

  8. When I was going up kids who were into role playing games and life action role playing (LARPing) where bullied at school and made to feel like shit. I know this because I was one of them!

    Now there is a form of LARPing that requires laws to be changed, police resources deployed and certain opinions to be outlawed.

  9. In the book Shetland the main character looks Spanish and has a strong Scottish accent.
    In the TV series he doesn’t look Spanish but has a strong Scottish accent.
    How long before the BBC apologize for this.

  10. David – Don’t get me started on “Glasgow”/Shetland
    There are limited numbers of Shetlanders in acting but not every Scottish actor is Glaswegian!

  11. Didn’t St Julie of Andrews play a woman, pretending to be a man who pretended to be a woman? Forget Mary Poppins, let’s burn the bitch!

  12. Made no sense to me, isn’t Redmayne a footballer or something? Was it a drag party?

    Wasn’t Paris Lees shredded by Andrew Neil?

    I wish they’d all shut up and let people live in peace

  13. @Salamander Obviously not the right kid of LARP. I’ve always found the simple fact that a boffer weapon can be easily exchanged with a broomstick extremely useful.

    Sure the teachers didn’t like it. Then again, the bullies sorta evaporated after the first demonstration.
    Even applies up to this day…

  14. A Brief Elaboration of a Tube

    Ecks been been reading The Art of War? He’s absolutely right; our society is under attack. The useful idiots identified, given a target, and set loose.
