Does Everything Have to Be About the Transgendered?

6/14/16 Breitbart:

Disney/Pixar’s upcoming film Finding Dory features a transgender stingray who transitions to become “Sting-Rhonda,” the film’s star Ellen DeGeneres revealed in an interview.
The sequel to the 2003 smash hit Finding Nemo has already fueled speculation that it will be the first Disney film to feature a lesbian couple, but Degeneres, who voices the titular blue fang fish, told USA Today in an interview that the film will feature a “trans sting.”
“There’s a stingray that’s becoming sting-Rhonda, so there’s a trans sting in the movie,” DeGeneres said.
How did a fraction of 1% of the population end up so powerful?

They aren't powerful. They are being used.

On the one hand are the usual somewhat clueless progressives who have to constantly signal their virtue by finding new causes and showing that they are on the right side while they put down the rest of us. Everyone who is anyone in that world has to put the newest cause into whatever they do, and we know that Hollywood has far more than its share of these idiots.

On the other are the cynical operatives who follow Alynski's rule: you have to keep finding new causes or your base will get bored and you will lose power.

And on the third hand (okay, bad metaphor), there are the really cynical who are following Orwell's model of getting people to say things that are obviously false. If you can get everyone to do that, while they know they are false, you have great power. If you can get them to suspend their judgment and try to believe the nonsense, you have even more power. Check out 1984, where Winston is tortured for saying "four" when the interrogator holds up four fingers and asks him how many.
