Should transgender personae only be performed by transgender people?
Limiting who is allowed to play a role on a gender basis rationale limits artistic liberty (Cate Blanchett could not have played Bob Dylan).
A producer may have a particular vision for a movie, and the best fit for the personality/ voice/ appearance of the character may not be a trans* actor. Limiting their available pool may compromise the artistic vision of the work.
