Mandalorian Actress Gina Carano Just Set the Bar for Mob Resistance

The irony of being a celebrity is that you stand out among the crowd but are forced to be the same as everyone else. Individualism isn’t exactly smiled upon unless that individual thought aligns with the body politic.

The Mandalorian actress Gina Carano was recently informed by a raging mob that the way she handles the transgender issue wasn’t good enough, and by “informed” I mean attacked relentlessly, insulted, and accused of being hateful for months.

But Carano did something that many celebrities have failed to do, and that’s stick to her proverbial guns and let the trans community know that no amount of bullying is going to make her cave and that the way she addresses things will stay the way they are.

The drama started when Carano was pestered relentlessly by social justice keyboard warriors to put her “pronouns” in her Twitter bio. Carano humorously wrote that her pronounes were “beep/bop/boop.” This naturally triggered the social justice warriors to lose it and she soon found herself in the center of a very kicked hornet nest.

Carano later said that after speaking with fellow Mandalorian actor Pedro Pascal, she understood why people put their pronouns in their bios but said that regardless, she still won’t be putting her ponouns in her bio.

Conseravtive radio show host Joe Pags asked what the “woke world” was angry with her for and Carano gave him the rundown. Even speaking to Pags was likely also too much for said woke world to take.

“They’re mad cuz I won’t put pronouns in my bio to show my support for trans lives,” said Carano. “After months of harassing me in every way. I decided to put 3 VERY controversial words in my bio.. beep/bop/boop I’m not against trans lives at all. They need to find less abusive representation.”

Carano continued to make it clear that the way many of these people were behaving was flat out wrong. She held their behavior up to a light and instead of making excuses and justifying it as too many others have, Carano held their feet to the fire.

“I don’t think trans people would like all of you trying to force a woman to put something in her bio through harassment & name calling EVERYDAY for MONTHS,” tweeted Carano. “Such as “Racist” Transphobe” “Bitch” “Weirdo” “ I hope you die” “I hope you lose your career” “your fat, you’re ugly”.”

“Maybe they should be mad at the mockery so many of you made of them,” she continued. “I sure would be, if I were them. Maybe wiping the slate clean without the hate speech towards others isn’t a bad idea at this point.”

She even gave a nice sendoff tweet to the online bullies, telling them “BOOP you for misunderstanding.”

In our day and age, Carano’s responses are worth their weight in gold. It’s clear that we can have differences of opinion, even disagree with each other’s lifestyles, but do so without an absolute deluge of hatred and bullying about it. Carano, like most people, clearly doesn’t have a hateful bone in her body for the trans community.

When it comes to any community, forcing people to act a certain way towards them is naturally going to find resistance. Someone making themselves a sacred cow that you cannot question or defy in any way, shape, or form is naturally going to breed defiance, but more importantly, it will breed contempt.

Carano’s resistance wasn’t just a good thing, but her suggestion that the trans community finds less hateful representation was good advice. If the trans community wants to be more accepted than it is, it cannot treat people as subjects that must obey it or suffer the consequences.

This goes for any community.

Social justice has created more division than its healed and if communities really want to come together, they’re going to have to ditch this ideological stone that’s dragging them down.
