Wish I had a time machine. I`d bring "IT" with me to Nazi Germany.

@Farty McDumbasspants, aka Xprez

"This is a guy, you can`t change that."

Yes we can. We have the technology that allows us to do exactly that.

"just don`t expect people with common sense to join in your altered reality and call you a woman when you`re a man"

Alright, agreed. In that same line of thinking, don`t expect me to call you Xprez when I know you`re Farty McDumbasspants.

You`re born what you are. Feelings after you`re of a cognizant age, are yours that you`ve developed. This is a guy, you can`t change that. People`s willingness to "go along" with this and accept it as reality, is just another indicator of how dumb we`ve become. It`s a guy that wants to be a woman, not a woman. It`s like going outside while the sun is shining and refusing to call it daytime. My point is, anyone can do what they want, just don`t expect people with common sense to join in your altered reality and call you a woman when you`re a man. And it`s not a surprise that a successful Hollywood director wins a "visibility" award.

So are we saying that biology and zoology, the inventors of gender categorization, are no longer to be trusted because of some outliers with sensitive self-considerations? He`s done some fantastic film work but I wont be rewriting genetic code for him.

I guess that depends on if you`re using genotype or phenotype.

Do what you gotta do, Lana, but I really hope you learn not to talk like a cartoon character.

Bophus: You sound like a nice person.
Solvent: Where have you been living? In the hills in a log cabin?

Well worth the half an hour it took to watch this. Besides her obvious directing ability, she`s also funny and insightful. Also nice to see a `Hollywood personality` who`s not full of herself.
And frankly who cares what her gender is/was? Just another human being making the best of the cards she`s dealt. My kind of person.

it must take a lot of courage to stand up and say "this is who I am and this is who I am going to continue to be." While a lot of people here will bash her for what she looks like or because she doesnt conform to your though of normal, they will also hide indoors when they are having a bad hair day or when they get a pimple, lol. Honestly, the world would be a better place if everyone would just be honest with themselves instead of living a charade because they think they are supposed to.

It must be scary as hell to come out of as a transgendered person, especially when you have a ton of media attention because of who you are.

Incredible message, incredible experience that I`m so glad that she shared, wonderful speech.

And, as she said, if she can help even one person by doing it, it was worth i. I hope she helps hundreds! :-)
