For normal Americans, there’s nothing good at the movies, this weekend. For the defining deviancy down crowd, there’s a whole lot: Not just one, but TWO (and arguably, three) transvestite movies.
When we say “transvestite movies,” we don’t mean movies that say this is a sick enterprise. Nope. We mean movies that “normalize” depraved gender identity crises into no big deal. We’re supposed to sympathize and identify with men who like to wear women’s clothing and lingerie–and those who get operations to mutilate their bodies accordingly. We’ve written about this disturbing attempt to mainstream “trannies” (here and here), which has, sadly, spread to forcing children to accept transsexual teachers and principals.
Here’s this week’s cavalcade of deviant cinema:
* “TransAmerica“: Stars “Desperate Housewives’ ” Felicity Huffman as a man who is a pre-op transsexual, who fathered a kid while as a man and goes to meet this kid. The kid is a runaway. Talk about traumatizing an already messed up kid. It’s out in limited release today, in the rest of the country by late December.
* “Breakfast on Pluto“: A foster kid leaves a destitute life in Ireland for a fabulous life as a transvestite and cabaret dancer in London. How charming. Stars girlie-man actor Cillian Murphy, who played the chief terrorist in “Red-Eye,” which we reviewed here.
* “Aeon Flux“: Stars Charlize Theron. Is supposed to be so bad, there were no press screenings, until last night at 10:00 p.m., making it impossible for critics in mainstream newspapers to review it before it’s opening, today. We include this one because Theron plays a very masculine, tough-chick superhero in this one. Basically, a transvestite.
And that’s the point of the Hollywood producers: blur the lines of the sexes. Feminize men, make women masculine.
