It’s called Acting for a reason


Apparently there is going to be a movie about a woman who pretends to be a man.

And cast in the starring role was Scarlett Johansson.

Who, I’m guessing is a well-known actress.

But in the interests of full disclosure, I doubt I’d be able to pick her out in a line-up.

Though, I do know she played the former Russia assassin with super powers in The Avengers movies.

Any old how.

So-called “trans activists” got super upset that an actress was going to do some … you know … acting.

You see, only a real-life woman pretending to be a man can portray a character who is a woman pretending to be a man.

What part of the word Acting do these people not understand?

For the record, Anthony Hopkins is not a psychopathic cannibal psychiatrist.

Jodie Foster was never actually a teen hooker.

Charles Laughton wasn’t a hunchback.

My old friend Zachary Quinto isn’t really Vulcan.

And Max von Sydow is not the Son of God.

It’s called Acting, you idiots.

Actors get paid to pretend to be someone they are not.

Which, when you think about it, is exactly like so-called “transsexuals” – except for the whole “being paid” part. Those guys pretend to be someone they’re not for free.

Well, almost for free. If they’re in the military, they expect us to pay for them to surgically mutilate their bodies in order to make their pretend seem more real.

But I digress…

Since Scarlett Johansson is paid to pretend, she’s perfectly suited to pretend to be someone who is pretending to be a man.

But, in this day and age, the lunatics are running the asylum.

And Hollywood just can’t bend over far enough to satisfy the various constituencies of the shrieking victim-class.

So rather than have a teeny, but loud group of rabble-rousers hound her every move, Johansson bowed out of the movie.

Let that be a lesson to you, Scarlett!

From now on you can only accept a role if the character is exactly like you!

So unless someone has a “The Story of Scarlett Johansson” movie in the works, it looks like you won’t be doing any acting anytime soon.

What’s ironic to me is activists have no problem with … for example … a black actress being cast in the role of Irish-American CIA Director Irene Kennedy in the train wreck version of Vince Flynn’s excellent book “American Assassin.”

Acting - American Assassin

Yeah. Does she look like a Mick to you?

Then again, look at the scrawny pretty-boy with the turned up nose who got cast as Mitch Rapp.

But where are the shrieking idiots who lit their hair on fire over Scarlett Johansson acting in the role of a woman pretending to be a man?

Why weren’t they complaining about a black actress named Sanaa Lathan playing the part of an Irish-American woman?

And if they’re okay with Sanaa Lathan playing Irene Kennedy when she is not an Irish-American woman, why aren’t they okay with Scarlett Johansson playing a woman pretending to be a man?

For Pete’s sake, Charlize Theron won an Oscar for playing an ugly, lesbian serial killer.

And, it just so happens, she’s none of those things.

That’s the magic of Acting.

Why is this so difficult to understand?

Johansson should have told these loudmouth idiots to go pound sand.

Instead, she bowed to the grievance mongers and sacrificed herself at the altar of Diversity.

Which, when you think about it, is kind of ironic.

After all, what is more diverse than having a woman pretend to be a woman who pretends to be a man?

But at the end of the day, who cares if Hollywood devours itself over political correctness?

They helped to create this monster.

And in a way, it’s kinda fun watching the monster turn on them.

You know, just like in the movie Frankenstein where the creature (played by an actor who not made of multiple dead body parts), turned on its creator.

With any luck, they’ll destroy each other.

    These trans people are pretending to be something that they’re not.

      You did notice I happened to say that in this post, right?

      • July 14, 2018 at 11:33 am

        Yeah, but when you say it, it’s so much better.

    Now… Barney Rubble…THAT was a great actor.

    They always go too far then people reject them again due their high maintenance drama.

    I can’t wait for Halloween this year. If they even begin to start on “cultural appropriation” I think we should demand…DEMAND!.. that no one gets to celebrate Halloween except Anglo-Saxons! Or Druids! Hispanics can go ahead with the Day-of-the-Dead thingy. But no one else.

    These Hollywood bratty kids are destroying themselves and it is worth a tub of popcorn to see them do so.
    Fun, Fun and funnier.

    The choice of a mega-star like Johansson was economic to draw more revenue. She’s out, but who’s gonna care now? NO ONE. Anyway, she’s just another Hollyweird, left-winger who turned down a roll that most people are repulsed by. Could that be the REAL reason she and her titties walked? *yawn*

      Name recognition is precisely why she was cast. You’re right about that. Most people aren’t like me. They’ve probably seen her movies. Often the only reason a movie gets a green light to begin with is because a big name signs on. Who — other than the miniscule fraction of the population who is gender confused — would go see it now?

  • July 14, 2018 at 3:45 pm

    What’s the diff anyway? Not like any normal people would go to see that movie.

    “sacrificed herself at the altar of Diversity” I’m with Whoopie. The aggrieved group that was protesting her was probably the core audience for the movie. Lose them, and what little ratings you were going to get go out the window. (Which is different, they tell me, from coming out of a closet.)

    How about the casting of 5’8″ 150 lb Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher in the film adaption of Lee Child’s “Reacher” novels – Child’s Reacher is 6’5″ 250 lbs of pure muscle.

    Libs shooting each other in the face — oh, the horror!

    I honestly watched some of these pathetic female warrior movies, and they are so disgustingly based in fantasy they are unwatchable, same thing with watching female ufc fights, utterly sickening. This agenda all fits in with the Lesbian, man hating, fantasy that is fed to women today that they are equal to man, don’t need man and are fine all by themselves to save the world.

    NO WHERE EVER in any movie will you see a woman with lots of children portrayed as a heroic figure, she will always be portrayed as a slave, oppressed by men. Fuck the Antichrist atheists who control hollywood. I was looking back in history and all this vile female warrior feminist shit started around 1970 just after the genocide upon the preborn began in America. You might think 50 years ago it was better than today, not in Hollywood movies, they were so blatantly antichrist, feminiazi and wicked you would not believe it. Go though a list of 1970s movies and it will shock you what they put in them.
