It’s political correctness gone Psycho! Remake won’t show the killer cross-dressing in a shower scene in order to avoid ‘transphobia’

Looks like Pat Brown!

It is the chilling moment from the classic film Psycho that once seen can never be forgotten.

Deranged motel proprietor Norman Bates, dressed up in his mother’s clothes, launches a murderous knife attack on a defenceless guest in the shower.

But now the scene from the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock thriller starring Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh has been remade, but with a crucial difference.

Bates is no longer wearing women’s clothes – for fear of damaging the image of the transgender community.

    Hey! Spoiler alert, dude!

    You know, shitloads of Hollywood classics, like those made during the *repressive* fifties and forties, would never get made today. In fact, a good 50% of Hollywood’s entire output filmed between 1930 and 1970 would now be considered racist, sexist and hate-filled.

    Imagine a PC remake, say, of ”Harem-Scarem” featuring Sheema Khan as Elvis’ love interest!

    Wiccans from Berkeley’s Wiccan Collective would picket ‘The Wizard of Oz’, scream Death to Margaret Hamilton and snap Glinda’s magic wand in two!

      Most of the iconic outer space movies and TV series from that period would also be banned for showing extraterrestrials in a stereotyped and unflattering matter. Not to mention the complete absence of feisty, empowered female spaceship captains.

      And the Cowboy ‘n’ Indian franchise? Get out! Daniel Boone was a racist, genocidal oppressor of peace-loving First Nations peoples whose massacres of settlers were a righteous act of self-defense…

    That word “remake” sure gets a lot of abuse.

    Next, they’ll “remake” Apocalypse Now as the story of a young lesbian coming of age in 1970’s Copenhagen.

      The horror, the horror!

        LOL.

        The whore, the whore!

    In a remake? Not the original. Please inform.

    So the deadly stabbing and murder is fine. But showing the killer in a dress could overwhelm viewers with the irresistible compulsion to lash out and stigmatize transvestites.

  • Hard Little Machine

    What about the knife wielding pychosexual serial killer community? Are they not entitled to not be triggered or offended?

      Is that a reference to the Muslims? That is a Sharia thing for them.

      • WalterBannon

        Ah, now I get it. Norman Bates is a muslim instead of a crossdresser. That was the message the liberals wanted to send with this change.

  • Hard Little Machine

    BTW anyone who knows Hitchcock knows the shower scene is a rape metaphor. He’s penetrating her naked body with a knife.

    They are right. Let the transgender community damage their own image. That is the way it is done now. Let people show what f**k ups they are on their own. Make your own judgements on each individually. Then, if you wish to buy into the left’s entire division of everyone into separate groups politics, then you can make the social justice mass judgements the left so loves to do.

    Use advanced Alinsky. Let them identify. Let some of them f**k up. Then social justice demonize. It is the leftist way.

    And in further great news. In keeping with the entertainment industry’s policy that every movie and TV show must have a wonderful gay character, its been announced that the next side kick for Dr. Who will be gay. Maybe the Daleks can have sex with him.

    • tom_billesley

      Bisexuality was a feature of the Dr. Who spinoff Torchwood intended for a “more adult” audience, but now they are bringing big gay to the main show with children in the audience.

      It’s a black lesbian with a fetish. According to the british teports.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    The only forthcoming movie carrying a measure of plausibility is Wonder Woman, played by an Israeli army veteran. Ah, for the Golden Age.

    So cross dressing goes against their sensibilities but the serial killing was OK?

    Is that the message they were planning to make with this move?

    Stupid virtue signaling lefties.
