I’m not here to bash this actress (Ellen Page who now goes by Elliot Page) who once appeared as a woman in movies like Juno and Inception. There are plenty of people out there taking either side of the story, whether it’s supporting her in “her journey to manhood” (that might be the weirdest phrase I’ve ever written) or those people not accepting that, to borrow a phrase from Tone Loc, ‘Sheena was a man.’ Of course, Elliot was born a woman but is now a trans-man.
But when Ellen/Elliot does the ‘Wild Thing,’ thanks again Tone Loc, what exactly is happening in the bedroom? She’s very close to an actress/comedian named Mae Martin, who (if my research is correct) was born a man but is now a non-binary person.
My brain is about to explode trying to figure this out but if Ellen was a woman who’s now a man, and Mae was a man but is now a woman, wouldn’t that just make them straight? I mean, scientifically speaking, of course. To clarify, let’s say Ellen was still Ellen and Mae was still a dude, that would be heterosexual. So technically, even with the gender roller coaster of these two, they’re still heterosexual, right? It’s a man and a woman even though the woman is the man and the man is the woman.
Complexities aside, I recently saw a video of Elliot Page and I couldn’t help but feel sick to my stomach. She looks like a gay little boy. Unfortunately, I doubt she’ll ever look like a natural born male. Kind of like Dylan Mulvaney’s situation… sad little thing won’t ever look like a real, natural woman.
Not to mention that if there are dozens of genders, what does bisexual mean anymore? And I’m not the first person to mention this, but calling yourself non-binary is in fact a binary distinction.
See y’all tomorrow!
