EtcetEraThread 'Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen' now on Netflix | "Having cis men play trans women [in film] is a direct link to the violence against trans women"
Reason User Banned (6 Months): Transphobia. Previous ban related to justifying bigotry.
I don’t know about this. The whole point of being a good actor is to do a believable portrayal. The idea is to play something you are not. I get the “x is taking a role that could have been played by a minority” argument but there is more to it than that. Having someone well-known (regardless of sexuality) playing a gay or trans role brings the title more publicity and more attention is brought to LGTB issues. I’m not saying all LGTB characters therefore should be played by the most well-known actors but just that there is some value “for the cause” when it happens. It’s not per default a negative. Brokeback Mountain would not have had the impact (or wide release) it had if the actors hadn‘t been as well-known. All actors should be allowed to play all roles. That’s what acting is about.


EtcetEraThread Why was there so many exposed breasts in 80s movies?
Reason User banned (1 week): Inflammatory false equivalence.
What happened, OP? America became more backwards and old-fashioned. Religous groups gained more influence. I can’t speak for the rest of Europe but in Denmark things really haven’t changed much. Of course we have always believed children are harmed more by violence than nudity.


GamingThread Twitch Punishes White Apex Legends Cosplayer Who Painted Her Face Black
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Justifying blackface
No one in my family know what black face is. No one in my family knows that doing it could be interpreted as racist. I’m in Europe. We aren’t “ignorant”. The concept of black face simply is not a thing here. Americans, please stop assuming everyone is like you. I’ve seen a lot of cosplays. The number one goal is to attain a look as close to the target as possible. With that in mind it makes perfect sense (to a non-American) to paint her face.
