A really bigoted movie
1 January 2020 | by sashaafox-82686See all my reviews

It's just transphobic and homophobic on so many levels.

Lesbians date women. They do not date transgender men, as they are men. Lesbians do not date men. Lesbians do not get "cured" of being gay by straight men. A cisgender man wouldn't need to pretend to be a transgender man to date a woman, because she's already dating men.

Avoid this awful movie.
