Under Pressure from Trans Extremists and Leftists, Business Insider Pulls Article Arguing That Scarlett Johansen Can Play a "Trans Man" If She Wants

They claimed the article was "offensive" and that the writer did not have the "expertise" necessary to opine on whether a female actress can play a female person herself pretending to be a man.

They also objected to the term "social justice warrior" as forbidden "name-calling," and that word now seems banned at Business Insider.

Someone I read posed a good question about this controversy:

By these rules, no gay man or lesbian woman should ever be allowed to play a straight character.

Do the trans activists, gay activists, and social justice warriors agree?
