Michelle Rodriguez Comes Underfire From LGBT Groups Over ‘Gender Reassignment Thriller’ Tomboy

GLAAD has criticised the makers of a new Hollywood thriller – Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale, which chronicles the story of hitman (played by Michelle Rodriguez), who falls into the clutches of a rogue surgeon, and is forced to undergo gender reassignment surgery against his will.

The film stars Michelle Rodriguez as a male assassin, who later takes revenge on his tormentor, who will be played by Sigourney Weaver.

A spokesperson for Glaad, said producers had picked an inappropriate storyline for their project.

GLAAD’s director of programs for transgender media, Nick Adams, told The Hollywood Reporter.

We haven’t read the script, but it’s disappointing to see film-makers turning what is a life-saving medical procedure for transgender people into a sensationalistic plot device. We are at a crucial moment in the public’s understanding of transgender issues, and stories like these have the potential to undermine the progress we’ve worked so hard to achieve.”

The film’s announcement comes at a time when Hollywood is coming under increasing pressure to clean up its negative portrayals of LGBT people.

Titled Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale, the film is the latest project from The Warriors and Bullet To The Head director Walter Hill. Hill will be directing from a script by author and occasional screenwriter Denis Hamill. Rodriguez and Weaver, meanwhile, previously worked together on James Cameron’s Avatar

Meeting Other Lesbians – A Quick How To

Do you feel like you’ll never meet the girl of your dreams? Are you shy, not sure where to begin? Well here are some tips to help you meet some new lesbians.

  1. Be yourself. Being someone you’re not just to get with someone is a big no-no. If she doesn’t like you the way you are, then she’s not “The One”.
  2. Join a group. If you have an LGBT group local to you, join it. You will get to talk to people who are going through some of the same issues you are facing and you might find a date. Networking with others in groups based in your own city or town will help you meet others with interests like yours.
  3. Go out and meet girls. Keeping to yourself and staying at home will not help you to meet new ladies. You need to get out there. The more places you go to, the more girls you’ll see, so start introducing yourself to people. Bottom line: the more places you go, the more people you meet, the more of them are girls, the better your chances of meeting a girl you’ll want to learn more about!
  4. Do the things you love to do. If you’re into reading, go to the library or your local bookstore. If you’re interested in photography or art, take a class at your local adult school or community college. If you enjoy sports, look into leagues in your area and go out and join a team. Anyplace you go where things you love are happening, your chances of meeting the right girl increase. And, if she is there, then she and you will have something important in common. Bonus.
  5. Go Online. Get involved in LGBT groups online – there are loads of fun people to talk too. Using care and awareness, it might even be safe to meet one or two (in a public place at first).
  6. Put your best foot forward. Of all the steps here, this is probably the most important. If you seem angry, sullen, pouty or petulant, people will not be interested – too much drama. Instead, work on creating an outer aura of confidence and good humour and a friendly face. If you present yourself with assurance and a smile, you will definitely attract a more assured and optimistic woman. Remember, it’s much better to attract the sort of person who complements you, and is willing to make the best of whatever situation comes her way.
