the most sexiest man on the universe

Man Crush Monday: Jai Courtney

I’ve thought Jai Courtney was one of the sexiest actors in existence for a few years now. 

The hunky 31 year old Australian actor got his start as a model, before he got into acting. Jai does seem to get typecast as the action hero, since most of his roles have been action movies. 

Courtney is most likely best known to American audiences for his role of Eric in the Divergent movie series. 

Courtney joined the DC Comics film universe as Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad. I’ll watch Jai Courtney in anything. Even when they make him look dirty or play idiots, he’s always the sexiest man onscreen. 

Jai has done television as well. HIs true breakout role was a Varro on Spartacus: War of The Damned. Jai is returning to tv in Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later. Knowing Jai Courtney is a part of the cast may be enough to make me want to watch.

"genderbending is transphobic because it suggests that your gender is defined from your bodyparts. making a cis male character cis female is transphobic, because it says that women are only women if they have a vagina and breasts. same thing with if you make a cis woman a cis man, then it suggests that you can’t be a man if you have a vagina. it erases trans people’s existence. make your character trans instead."

Hi Anon, thanks so much for your message. I have to say right off the bat that I’m not trans, so I have little rights to speak to what is or is not offensive or insensitive to trans persons, people on the trans spectrum, or other members of the trans community. I am very sorry if any thing I have said or done has upset anyone; that was never my intention, though I know my intention makes no difference if people have been hurt.  So, please consider the following not my making excuses, but attempting to identify where I’m coming from and why I still use this idea of “genderbending”.

That said, and again acknowledging that the idea of man=penis/woman=vagina is super damaging to men and women both on and off the trans spectrum, I would like to say that when I use the term “gender bend” I don’t think of it as a switching of genitalia, but of gender identity. I use the term a lot, as gender identity, gender roles, and societal gender expectations and how these could affect stories has always fascinated me [e.g. How would we look at Cinderella if the protagonist was a poor, abused boy who “got the girl”? Would we appreciate him as a hard worker who changed his fate even though we criticize the woman who was just “waiting around for a prince to save her”?]. As I usually use it in connection to musicals on this blog, it’s also often about allowing women to have the complex, non-romance-focused, leading roles usually reserved for men or about letting men have stories where they are vulnerable or hopelessly, sappily in love (because almost any experience can be had by a man or woman or agender or genderfluid or bigender or otherwise person). 

So, within my headspace, this doesn’t mean that Jack Kelly now has breasts; it means Jackie Kelly is now a young female-identifying person who has to face many of the same challenges along with sexism, and is instead a young woman who inspires a revolution despite stigmas that women can’t lead and that a woman should be quiet and deferential. It asks “If the roles in “The Last Five Years” were reversed, would we call Jamie a bitch for putting career before relationships instead of just ambitious and focused? Would the audience view a male-identifying Cathy as whipped and pathetic instead of loyal and strong to stick with her man through it all?”.

I also believe that it’s important and interesting to look at traditionally cis characters as on the trans spectrum: Elphaba feeling different and being bullied for not being deemed “female” when she was born on top of all the things that might set her apart, her ultra-feminine friend trying to help her to be more like a “normal, popular” girl, not believing a straight boy would look at her and think she was pretty;  Medda Larken being the most-desired, sexiest of women regardless of what might be between her legs and sympathizing with every underdog who walks in her theater; J. Pierpont Finch will rise in his company by entering the brotherhood and beating that patriarchal system and being a man’s man even though he’ll never mention his birth certificate says “Janet” under first name. 

Stories are universal, but they’re not. And Tracy Turnblad as a cis woman is not the same story as Tracy Turnblad as trans woman which is not the same story as Tracy Turnblad as a cis man. Anyone can experience a set of given circumstances and navigate the world in a certain way, but the changing of gender identity will almost always affect the story and how we look at it. And I’m very interested in how those kinds of changes will affect the stories I love. And I enjoy exploring them, which I hope is not an affront to anyone.

To my followers (and anyone else), if there is a better/more preferred term for this idea, or another way to express them which could be less insensitive, please please let me know. Again, I am so very sorry if I have hurt anyone. And thank you, Anon, for bringing this up.
