Ouch!
Eddie Redmayne better get ready to hand his Oscar back too!

It's just too depressing to think about. Somehow an ultra sanitised world
has sprung up while I wasn't looking, and it's not pretty!

Extremes of both supposed 'right' and supposed 'left' should just get no support... because they're extremes. I don't even care who the actor or actress is, they should be free to take whatever role offered without some supposed 'moral' assault on them for crying out loud.Can we get that much straight finally or do we have to go through another dark age of isolated pockets of fanatics dividing everything up and fighting? An actual person who works for real changes and inclusivity does not function in this extreme judgement manner.

The problem is Rebecca is that the isolated pockets of fanatics have
already got their way. They have won... This is the new norm: a world
where a trans character can only be played by a trans actor, Disabled
actors can only be played by disabled actors, lesbian actors can now
only be played by actual lesbians... It's ludicrous.

Does anyone actually think this is progress???

Hollywood went thru decades of disrespecting racial, ethnic and cultural minorities. White actors in blackface at the beginning. Italians playing Native Ameicas. Whites playing Asians, Indians (both kinds), Polynesians. Anthony Quinn, who was Mexican, played Zorba the Greek and Quasimodo (who was French). On and on.

Eventually there was some push back and, of course, the pendulum swung the other way. White characters are played by Black actors. HAMILTON happens. Anyone who complains is called racist.

So, of course, every minority want a piece of the pie. Are they entitled? I'd say yes. Should they turn into PC police? I don't think so.
