I thought this was well said and needed to be pointed out:

"It’s not about who is able to play who; acting is about portraying someone else. It’s about how casting decisions like these play out in a field where cisgender heterosexual actors get to play a wide diversity of roles and get accolades for portraying marginalized people while marginalized people get neither." - John Paul Brammer

That's a great quote + article. I hate that this is the kind of headline that many will see, have an overly dramatic reaction to, and form an opinion on without giving any thought to the content of the article or experiences/opinions of those who are actually LGBTQIA. Hell, I'll acknowledge that the reactionary idiot in me started bubbling to the surface for a split-second just reading the title.
