Transgender celebrities, yay or nay?
Media personalities display themselves in the eyes of the public in one of two ways. They are performing artistes and their performance on stage may be a pure persona or facade. Our very own television station Channel Eight’s renowned drama character ‘Liang PoPo’ aka Grand Mother Liang is well depicted by famous comedian Jack Neo. Everyone knows that it’s just an act and his performance had garnered a massive fan base while that series was in full spin. On the flip side of the spectrum , some stars are just being themselves.Transgender cable television talk show hosts Begum Nawazish Ali and Rose Venkatesan are not acting, they are actually making themselves comfortable in a
demeanor they deem appropriate. They should be duly applauded because they are not afraid to stand up against stigma and public narrow mindedness.They willing show the world who they perceive themselves to be. If they feel more comfortable in a sari than a suit, by all means.
Innovation and resolution on their parts can only help towards their eventual integration into the hearts and minds of the man in the streets.It’s akin to public relation in a personal scope.
Singapore is proving herself to be one of the world powers in terms of financial poweress,sensible governmentation,sound
infrastructure,advanced airport and is quickly advancing to be a world class sports host. With the likes of Esplanade Theater and a fast maturing media industry, the last thing we need is to be culturally backward. Singaporeans may be truly a salad blend of migrants from India, China and Malaysia, that does not mean that we need to stick to traditional school of thoughts. If Singaporean schools are always advocating self expression and being true to ourselves, people who drift away from the norm should not be castigated as outcasts or weirdos. With the society’s cosmopolitan outlook ,even the young should be able to differ between right and wrong. Self expression as Transgenderism is neither right nor wrong. It’s a personal decision, a grey area so to speak. If students are trained to write argumentative essays to illustrate grey areas, they should also be able to embrace different definitions of sexualities and orientations. Singaporeans must be exposed to different facets of the entertainment diamond to be truly well rounded. Bring it on , Kumar!
Ethically mixed celebs ,yay or nay?
This new trend isn’t groundbreaking in any sense. Globalization has
been a regular phenomenon since the dawn of time. From international super powers such as the US to an emerging tiny red dot like Singapore, we are all countries of immigrants. When there is such racial and social integration, inter-racial marriages are going to be the norm.
There is a Chinese saying which goes ” It doesn’t matter if the cat
has fair or dark fur, it’s a good cat as long as it’s capable of
catching rats.” I believe the same goes for ethically-mixed
celebrities and and non-mixed celebrities alike. If they are good
enough, they will be popular.Ethically-mixed celebrities are just a
tiny subset of all the mixed races folks around.I don’t see Lunzahovic Alfonso the Russian Spanish bread seller making a name for himself despite his heritage. The only reasons why celebrities are popular and prominent are the fact that they possess tremendous talents,the abilities to build up rapport and to strike up a chord with the community, not because of their skin color.
To put things into perspective, Johnny Depp is immensely popular and sort after not because he is a Cherokee Indian/Irish/German. He is sought after because he has the flexibility to take on different roles in different movie genres.He can play a quirky villain or a twisted hero equally well. Who can forget his morbid take of Sweeney Todd the blood thirsty revenger or his breath taking performance as Captain Jack sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbeans?
As long as quality productions are churned out as regularly as
chocolate bars from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory,i wouldn’t care less whatever nationality and ethnic group the talents hail from. Would you?
