The Right Man for the Job
Dallas Buyers Club is such a wonderful movie
Such an authentic portrayal of the lives of trans women struggling with the effects of AIDS brought on by survival sex work
And a well deserved Oscar nod for the right man for the job
Yes, the right man for the job
Cause trans women are really men in dresses you know?
Or we get portrayed by women who are made up to look more masculine
Great job Felicity Huffman
Well deserved accolades from cis Hollywood
I wonder if people are aware of the existence of trans actresses whose name is not Laverne Cox?
Hollywood most certainly isn’t
Either that or there’s a shortage of trans actresses good enough to perform an authentic portrayal of themselves
Why hire a trans woman when you can find the right man for the job?
After all these actors must have such a hard time finding a job, right?
I grew up watching men pretending to be a woman like me
Except that wasn’t what I would see. And it wasn’t a woman like me
No, I got axe murderers in skin suits and many a pathetic prostitute
Cause either we are psychopaths in drag or pathetic caricatures of women doomed to live our lives in rags
Eke out our survival by tricking men into fucking us for pay
Speciality merchandise, turning tricks and being called traps
Pictures and videos that exist for straight men to fap
We’re Portrayed by Hollywood as deviant murderers or pathetic sex workers by men
Cause we are not as good at sharing our stories as them
No… Our stories lie on the lips of the trans sex workers murdered on the streets in ignorance
Silenced by men
Shut up! Don’t judge this movie until you see it
Matt Bomer is an amazing actor…
The voice of a white cis man telling me to shut up
Cause I am not supposed to make a judgement until I see the movie
The question is will I see anything any different from the 29 or so other movies where men play trans sex workers?
Well, it’s acting…
I guess they hired the right man for the job
