LGBT Meltdown: Trans ‘Community’ Angry Gay Man Will Play Trans Woman

The transgender community is angry at Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers, 2012) for casting an openly gay man as a transgender woman in his upcoming transgender drama Anything. Ruffalo felt the need to justify himself on Twitter, nearly apologizing when faced with the outrageous demand that he scrap the movie, which has already been filmed. An op ed in the Huffington Post even alleged that having a gay man (Matt Bomer, White Collar) play a transgender woman would result in violence.
