It’s James. Not Jamie Bond.

It’s James. Not Jamie Bond.

It’s James. Not Jamie Bond.

The James Bond film franchise is the stuff of fantasy. Arguments erupt over whom portrayed him best. But it is agreed, he’s an aspirational fantasy, not Transexual.  The films have an ability to engage everyone from 12 year old boys with cool tech, to the 65 year old man wistful of Bond’s style and swagger. We journey into escapism, with strong female characters who are as often a villain as they are the “Bond Girl.” Then of course, there’s James Bond.

Bond is Many Things, However…

Bond not a Trans-Male. Yet that’s not stopping the Trans-Mafia from trying to strong arm cultural acceptance by having a Trans-Male (Birth female, living as a male) actor portray the character. It’s not enough to mandate a preferred gender, it’s about shifting the culture to forced acceptance.

“It would tell me that trans men were being seen as men, legitimate and worthy of casting in this role,”

Transparent star Ian Harvie   in The Daily Beast.

Nothing screams masculine stereotype like James Bond. He’s the pinnacle male figure. The over the top sexual chemistry is undeniably the hallmark for what makes Bond, Bond. Even the grumpy character “M”, portrayed by the phenomenal Judi Dench, has a soft spot for James.

Pure Fantasy, Not Social Commentary

Portrayed by Sean Connery, Pierce Bronsan, Daniel Craig, or one of the other 4 actors fortunate enough to be James Bond, it is undeniable that he has an unabashedly male sensuality. Naomie Harris  currently playing “Miss. Moneypenny” sums it up best,

“Bond is all about sexual magnetism, capability in the field, his intellect and that’s what we want for Bond…”

When I make a date to see James Bond, it is all about the fantasy his character creates. I don’t sit down for hot buttered popcorn and a side of social justice. My money is spent to see car chases, amazing gadgets, and unbelievably attractive people leave brutal fistfights looking “slightly worn.” It’s escapism, served by a fantasy character. I don’t want to wonder if Bond has a vagina, and how far the re-assignment surgery has progressed. Not sorry.

Seems that even in the LGBTQ community has some misgivings,

Unrealistic Demands

Based upon 2016 analysis by the Williams Institute The Trans community is approximately 0.6% of the American population, or just over 0.5% of the entire population in the USA identifies as Trans. It means that probably 0.3% of the Trans population may identify as male, but obviously their lifestyle must be “validated” by the other 99.4% of the USA.

The Trans community is a small, but very squeaky, wheel in the engine of America. It’s not enough that public schools accommodate the desires of Trans students for bathroom, locker room, and athletic policies. Not enough that in NY City using the wrong pronoun is penalized. (Even the liberal leaning Snopes cannot false flag this one),

Discrimination against a transgender individual could result in fines of up to $250,000, but these fines won’t be handed out for accidentally misusing pronouns. According to the new guidelines, the commission can impose civil penalties of up to $125,000 for violations of the law and (in extreme circumstances) of up to $250,000 for violations that are the result of “willful, wanton, or malicious” conduct.

Forcing a culture shift by hijacking an established Alpha Male character is unfair to the majority of Bond fans. If you want a fast death of a powerhouse franchise, follow this path. Obviously, a huge hit with 0.6% of the US market. Add those ticket sales to $3.00 and you can buy a large popcorn at the Sunday discount showing.

Create Your Own Fantasy Character

The James Bond franchise has broken barriers. The films famous for “Bond Girls” defies Hollywood norms in 1967’s “You Only Live Twice” with Akiko Wakabayashi , and again in 1973’s “Live And Let Die”, with Gloria Hendry . Strong female characters, at a time when it was uncommon for women to be portrayed in film as sexual and independent. James Bond didn’t morph into an Asian or Black woman to break the barrier, but it happened without identity politics as a catalyst.   

007 is played by charismatic actors who take a backseat to the character they play. Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Daniel Craig…. All became Bond. Bond didn’t change to highlight the actor. He’s Bond. The fact that the “character Bond” is more than the actor makes it possible for all of us to “be Bond”, and shifting the focus to “Identity Politics” of the actor who plays Bond is a misstep of epic portions. 

Hollywood has created strong female characters, in very successful films. “Laura Croft”, “Black Widow”, “Wonder Woman” are excellent examples of strong female action heroes, played by women. They weren’t “Luke Croft”, “Black Widower”, or “Wonder Man” morphed into women.  The actors playing those characters are not Trans-Female. If the Trans community wants a strong fictional action character, they need to create one of their own. “Xe, Person of Social Justice Policy”, with whatever villain and storyline fits their narrative.

Leave James Bond alone. Preferably with me and some hot buttered popcorn in a darkened room. We’ll create a new martini, shaken, with a dash of SJW tears.

    You *GASP* forgot George Lazenby’s Bond in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service!” How dare you? (j/k – don’t kill me – I’m a Bond fangirl)

    Also, Dominic West can eat a dick. I used to like him, because he’s a good actor. Too bad he’s a SJW turnip.

    • NC says:

      I didn’t…. He was a one turn Bond. Thought I love the re-boot with Daniel Craig, I think I’m torn for the best Bond.
      Connery was wonderfully sardonic. Moore was bemused. Pierce Bronsan was just hot. DC does a good “Brooding” Bond.
      No doubt the best “M” is Judy Dench. We’ll see how the new one works out…. then who will be the next Bond.

      • Nicki says:

        OMG, Pierce Brosnan is ridiculously hot. Even now that he’s like 1000 years old!

        I think Moore was probably the worst Bond, and I agree that Dame Judy rocks M like no other!! Ralph Fiennes – the new M is an AMAZING actor! I love him so much! I think he will be a fantastic M!

        As for new Bond… having seen Tom Hiddleston in “The Night Manager,” I want/need/desire him in that role!!!

  • NC says:

    True, but it’s hard not to see Loki (or Taylor Swift break-up song #3,200) when I look at Tom. Worst Bond has to go to Timothy Dalton. Roger Moore was a perfect 80’s cheesy Bond. Mr. Remmington Steele May be a 1,000 years old, but still looks good to me! PB is no Sam Elliott, but I’ll feed them both crackers…
    I think the reboot is good. Skyfall is one of my favorite Bond films, and I’m looking forward to the new Bond adventures.

    • Evil Otto says:

      Are you kidding? I loved Timothy Dalton’s Bond. He was a grittier character than we’d seen in a while, since Bond had been using ridiculous gadgets and fighting supervillains in giant blimps and aboard space shuttles during the Moore era. Dalton was a mix of the ruthless killer Bond and the suave gentleman Bond. He battled arms dealers and Soviet agents and drug kingpins, not maniacs who wanted to take over the world. It’s too bad he didn’t get a couple more movies.

      • GWB says:

        Yes, the problem with Moore’s Bond was the overabundance of gadgets. He had his Bat Belt of tools to get him out of bad situations. Blecch. Which is a shame, since I think he could have carried off a more action-oriented Bond.

        I have to say Dalton was a meh Bond in my opinion. He showed some moments of pure Bondness, but often just… meh.

        Lazenby carried off the suave and debonair bit, imo. But he just didn’t seem to have the magnetism of Connery.

        On a different note, I would love to see someone make movies of the actual book plots. Dr No was the closest. The Spy Who Loved Me‘s only similarity was the actual title. The book plot is pretty gritty, and would be a great opportunity for a strong female character (requiring only a little bit of re-write to get there).

  • GWB says:

    he’s an aspirational fantasy, not Transexual
    Well, to be honest, that’s true of a great many transsexuals, too – they’re looking at an aspirational fantasy.

    The Trans community is approximately 0.6% of the American population
    Of which, probably half is children pushed into it by society or their parents.

    Forcing a culture shift by hijacking
    Hijacking anything. It’s how the cultural marxists operate – destroy the things by taking them over and making them thoroughly stupid/uninteresting/unfunny.

    James Bond didn’t morph into an Asian
    Ummm, have you *watched* You Only Live Twice? 😉

    Strong female characters
    Like Pussy Galore. Possibly first mainstream, obviously lesbian character?

    Bond didn’t change to highlight the actor.
    Arguably, that’s why they all depart after a while – they become so much the character in the public eye that they become typecast.

    And, Darleen, excellent graphic. 🙂

    I have an idea for a good trans adventure hero. Whaddaya think of:

    THE ADVENTURES OF TIRESIAS! He, then she, then he travels the ancient world, dealing with gods and heroes, tyrants and monsters, not with muscle but with wisdom, even after being struck blind after giving away the special secret of the goddesses (you can look that one up). It’d need a world-class fantasy writer and top-of-the-line special effects, but could be great….

    “Forcing a culture shift by hijacking an established Alpha Male character is unfair to the majority of Bond fans.”

    Demanding fairness for those the postmodernists seek to subjugate and/or destroy is a bizarre concept. The “culture shift” they want is the REPLACEMENT of “Alpha Males” et al. They do not want to live in peace side by side with such ‘evil’. They want to abolish that evil and supplant it with ‘goodness’. That is the whole POINT of “hijacking” such iconic characters – which is why they have done so with Doctor Who and with Star Wars. And it is why they seek to do so with any and all other pop culture icons which support and sanction the ideas they are against.

    What we are witnessing today is the postmodernist’s version of ‘transfiguring’ works of art into tools of outright philosophic propaganda and counter-“programming”. It is akin to what the Christian Church did to “appropriate” and transform the art and customs of pagan cultures (especially their winter traditions) into symbols of Christianity instead.

    In this respect one is reminded of the Joker in Tim Burton’s original “Batman” going around the Art Museum defacing all the art there, recreating it in his image instead. The Joker and his nihilistic postmodernist friends do not give a damn about being ‘fair’ to anyone.

  • Blank Reg says:

    Yeah, go ahead and do that. Just be aware of two things: 1) the movie is going to lose about $200 million and probably bankrupt whichever studio is dumb enough to make it, and 2) it’ll be the last Bond movie ever made.
