Now that makes more sense, Well it sucks that they won't let you play a female especially since theater in general is more open to non traditional casting and has a history of MEN playing women (misogynistic reasons aside). But also what I mean is this: if you are a gay man or you don't conform to gender roles or whatever, and you don't feel comfortable or have the range of the like "man", it's like you can't act at all it seems.

I am neither asking for them to let me play a female nor am I saying that I don’t want to play a male. I auditioned in a way that would show off my strengths best, and just because it was with a “female” monologue does not mean that I was presenting my performance at large along any express lines of gender. Your thoughts are all bound up in the binary, and you probably have no idea where I’m coming from.

I don’t want to be rude, but your understanding of both sexuality/gender politics and the craft of acting seem far too rudimentary for invocation as a means of passing judgment on me.

In short, I’ll take your shit to school so you’d better not even go there.
