No Transgender Aliens - No Avatar!
Say GLBT Activists
In December 2009, TG activists got their gender bending underwear in a twist over James Cameron's block-buster movie, Avatar. Their problem on this occasion was not that Cameron's film is transphobic. It doesn't even mention transgenders.
That was actually their problem. In what has to be the silliest protest ever planned, GLBT organizations protested 'Avatar' because it didn't have transgender aliens in its story-line. Here were their reasons - straight from the TG horses mouth:
1) To make all people aware that heterosexual arrogance, assumptions or exclusions of alternative sexualities in movies is no longer acceptable. Diversity and tolerance are human rights.
2) To speak out for all gay, bi-sexual, genderless and transgender people who are not represented by any character in Avatar.
3) To educate people about Evolution and humanity's transition to transgenderism.
Further protests, for the same stupid reason, are planned around around the Oscar ceremonies on March 10 if the movie gets nominated for an Oscar or two.
Charles Dickens didn't mention gays or transgendered people in Nicholas Nickleby, should we boycott him as well? Wait here is something, most all movies, television shows, newspaper articles, radio shows, songs, albums, internet postings and every other source of media, don't mention gays or transgendered people, let alone have characters representing them. Perhaps you should ban all media. Stupid, stupid, stupid. What a bunch of morons. This is such a classic example of taking something way too far, to the point of pure ridiculousness. Honestly, it's just stupid.
