“Tomboy” Is Already Getting Bashed By LGBT Groups



We all knew that Michelle Rodriguez’s new transgender movie “Tomboy: A Revenger’s Tale” was going to be controversial and ruffle a few feathers, but we had no idea that it would be happening this quickly.

The first person to speak out about the film is GLAAD’s director of program for transgender media, Nick Adams. Adams said that it’s disappointing that a medical procedure that is considered as life-saving for transgender individuals is being turned into a sensationalistic plot device.

It’s pretty strange that Adams has already reached a conclusion about the movie, since he even admitted that he hasn’t read the script yet. According to the plot of the movie, Rodriguez’s hit man character is forced into gender reassignment surgery by an evil doctor played by Sigourney Weaver.

Is the movie’s plot really that offensive, or does it only seem that way just because transgender issues have recently been in the news a lot?
