Belgium's Foreign-Language Oscar Submission, 'Girl,' Is a Danger to the Transgender Community



The near-unanimous praise for the film has been exclusively generated by critics who are not transgender.
The film isn’t just another case of irresponsible casting or harmful stereotypes.
If Girl takes home an Oscar, it would be a drastic step backwards for trans representation in Hollywood.
Directed by Lukas Dhont and co-written by him and Angelo Tigssens, both cisgender men.
A cisgender male actor was cast to play a teenage trans girl.
