On Sunday night, "non-binary" Orange is the New Black actress Asia Kate Dillon presented uber-feminist Emma Watson the first "genderless" MTV award. Watson gave a predictable spiel on gender equality, which she wrongly equates with sameness, and even stopped mid-speech to give the "non-binary" presenter a hug. It was peak virtue-signaling.
“This year has been full of firsts for me. I am the first, openly, non-binary actor to play a non-binary character on a major, television show and now it’s so cool to be here presenting the first, acting award ever that celebrates performance, free of any gender distinctions,” gushed Dillon. “Tonight, we celebrate portrayals of the human experience because the only distinction we should be making when it comes to awards is between each outstanding performance. I am honored to give this golden popcorn trophy to one of these talented nominees.”
Watson gave the most SJW-appeasing speech of all time.
“The first acting award in history that doesn’t separate nominees based on their sex says something about how we perceive the human experience. MTV’s move to create a genderless award for acting will mean something different to everyone, but, to me, it indicates that acting is about the ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and that doesn’t need to be separated into two, different categories,” said Watson. “Empathy and the ability to use your imagination should have no limits.”
Then the Beauty and the Beast actress stopped mid-sentence to hug and thank Dillon "for educating me in such an inclusive, patient and loving way.
"I'm so proud to be a part of a film that celebrates diversity, literacy, inclusion, joy and love the way that this one does," continued Watson.
The Left, of course, had a full-blown orgasm over the spectacle. After all, rich Hollywood elites solved female oppression!
Yeah, not even close.
First of all, there are many more male than female lead actors. This will put women at a disadvantage if this "genderless" award trend continues. Also, men and women tend to play much different roles. For example, judging Hugh Jackman in Logan and Emma Watson for her role in a fairy tale in the same category seems ridiculous. This is why we have categories in the first place. If the genderless theme applies to an award show like the Oscars, women will start winning awards for purely politically correct reasons as a way to fill some SJW quota in Hollywood elites' minds, or men will likely dominate many more categories than they already do.
So the Left should enjoy their "equality" now, before females don't come out on the winning end of the genderless awards and we get a socially conscious #OscarsSoMale hashtag.
