i can’t believe people don’t know the difference between “actor playing doctor” and “marginalised person being portrayed by someone who can never possibly understand their experience, disallowing trans women to tell their own stories”
literally in an argument about this on facebook right now. i just got called out for having a “simplistic understanding of actors”. i want to slap this person across the face, write “YOU HAVE A SIMPLISTIC AND JUVENILE UNDERSTANDING OF GENDER IDENTITY” on a brick and shove it down their throat.
i forgot to abide by my rule to never get into arguments on the internet because this shit always happens.
u know that one friend you love dearly but who always believes whole-heartedly in weird shitty documentaries
