Ya know, it would be awesome having a Martin Luther King movie and letting Channing Tatum play MLK.
You see the issue here now?
The idea is that if you are going to make a movie with transgender people, why not use transgender people? If you use a non-trans woman to play a trans man... and a "bombshell" woman at that, it is the equivalent of saying that trans men are closer to women than who they identify as... men.
There's a great level of disrespect there and that is what pisses off the community.
Not allowing trans people to play trans roles is Hollywood refusing to allow new trans people, or trans people in general to become stars.
Virtue signalling 101. Very impressive, did you read that off of a pamphlet?
