    It seems to me that while this article has a great point to make and I just plain like it, evaluating or judging something in the past because of today's philosophies is a bit unfair. Ace Ventura happened at a particular point in time and space in human history, where different values and knowledge was promoted. Aside from the fact that they make fun of the stereotype of the predatory tran, (being a comedy and all), I really doubt Mr. Carrey would portray such a stereotype here and now in 2013.

    Judging this movie with today's standards, is like judging harakiri in feudal japan with today's pro-life-everyone-must-live-and-deserves-a-second-chance mindset. Although completely different topics, the judgement should be pointed out in the historical context where it happened.

    Transgenders do suffer a lot, and more so because of ignorance and the way we've been raised. It has to stop, now. This was a very good article, and I did enjoy it. Thank you for it.
