Default Voice Acting and Transgender Question

if so many people do voice acting for both male and female characters in animated television shows and movies and a lot of people are fine with it, how come so many people have a problem with people who are transgender?

most of the time when a female animated character is voiced by a male, usually the male is super young so they have a high pitched voice etc

for why people have an issue with trans people, imo its just the brains natural response to something it's unfamiliar with, and it gets confused - you see one thing and you don't hear what you expect, or you hear a voice that's half between male and female and you aren't accustomed to it, so the normal response is disliking it, idk

i think there's a difference between acting as a certain gender and claiming that you are said gender. by only acting as a certain gender, if you're otherwise cis, then you're still following gender norms

edit: hmm... actually, this is wrong. people who act as another gender are still stigmatized too.
i still think acting as another gender is less stigmatizing than being trans for that reason

Voice acting either is done well, or not done well. A good job is when the character is really believable and coordinated with it's physical characteristics in a way that makes sense, and portrays the essence of that character.

Politics have nothing to do with it. Anyone making it political is out of their mind.

I think in both cases, being ok with people voicing characters of the opposite gender and not being ok with people who are transgender, both go back to ignorance

most of the time when the average person is watching/listening to anything with voice acting in it, they don't have any fucking idea about the gender of the voice actor, and likely don't give a shit. The people that do know, they view it as a way of making money; its not even imitation, its acting (though I admit that I am skipping a step here). Its not stigmatized at all for whatever reason(s) for someone to act as someone of the opposite sex in most places, though it is far more common in voice acting than in traditional acting.

people who aren't ok with people who are transgender could have any number of reasons for their opinion.

Isn't it more like trans people start using their new voice too early in public, before it's refined and sounding natural, leaving them sounding forced and unnatural? Voice actors typically have many years of practice too

I think it's down to the fact that for most people gender is defined by genitalia; so if you're claiming one gender but you clearly have the parts for another people are going to not know what's happening because you're challenging their definition of the word. Even people who are pretty ok with how one lives their lives are going to do a double-take because we're ingrained to automatically deduce as much info as we can as soon as we can do it; when something that -up until maybe a decade or so - was very reliable way to figure out gender proves to not be what the person identifies with it kind of throws folks off balance.

None of this is a problem in acting because in 99% of the cases the character is not trans and people can correctly deduce the gender by body type, with some notable exceptions I guess

yeah but people have been transgender since at least when humans existed, if not since other animals have existed; it just wasn't common knowledge until recently probably

When the game isn't fun for you anymore, take a break. It's not a job, nobody here is professional and getting paid to play and force themselves to constantly improve... it's a game.
