Equality? 'Gender Fluid' Actor Eligible for Male AND Female Academy Awards
Ah, the Academy Awards. An opportunity for leftist Hollywood gasbags to dress in fancy clothes and pat each other on the back. For stellar achievements like doing a really good job of playing pretend. To us normies, the Oscars has become little more than a gathering of self-important buttholes trying to out-dumb each other. Well, this year they've managed to take it to a whole new level...
Kelly Mantle, a gender-fluid performer who was a contestant on the sixth season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” has made Oscar history as the first potential nominee eligible in both male and female categories, TheWrap has learned.
Mantle plays a transgender prostitute in “Confessions of a Womanizer,” a Miguel Ali indie from Harbor House Films starring Andrew Lawrence and Gary Busey.
The film’s producers ran into a dilemma when filling out Oscar paperwork, which required them to classify Mantle, who was born a man, as either male or female. Mantle was submitted for consideration in both categories, and the Academy confirmed that the performer can be nominated in either one.
It's safe to say the Academy's credibility is sinking. Like a canoe with Lena Dunham aboard.
The Academy Awards have always provided a platform for progressives to bring awareness to trendy leftist causes. Like climate change and the (non-existent) gender pay gap. This year it's gender fluidity. And it seems they've also accidentally brought awareness to the fact that being "gender fluid" makes no sense. A tranny at least makes up his/her/ze's mind. "Gender fluid" seems like leftist code for indecisive.
In this case, Kelly Mantle is trying to reap the benefits of both genders at the same time. Naturally. He/she/ze is breaking glass ceilings. Silly things like rules or anatomy don't apply here. Because limiting semi-trannies with facts? Major no bueno. You'll get letters. Besides, the Academy is already on thin ice after last year's #OscarsSoWhite "controversy" (see Halle Berry Moronically Talks #OscarsSoWhite and Her 'Iconic' Award). Better to play it safe.
But seriously, feminists? Any time you want to chime in on this one. A dude is potentially stealing the limelight from women, simply for throwing on a dress and prancing around. First there was CoverBoy, now we have leading "actresses" who already have an Oscar of their own tucked beneath their dress. Say, that sounds a lot like the erasure of women. So much for equality.
With situations like this popping up more often, maybe the Academy will eventually eliminate the competition altogether and simply hand out participation trophies. Less paperwork.
