Review: Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Terminator 2: Judgment Day
Inanimate, Male, Mechanical, Gender
The T-1000, (Spoiler Text) takes on both male and female shapes. (Spoiler Text)
From: Corwin , 290 months, post #1
No sex change in Terminator 2.
The "bad guy" robot is a shapeshifting machine which, for most of the movie, is a machine that looks like a man. A couple of times it becomes a machine that looks like a woman... but it's never male or female and never changes from one to the other. It's a machine, a device, a toaster!
Great action flick, though.

It must have something to do with it being sexless and then having gender when it changes form.

I think it should be considered transgender because T-1000 is a male and the forms he used to try to kill John Connor are both female, Sarah and Janelle. Will there be any transgender in T3?

No swadarin, I don't think there is any tg here. He (or I should say "it") is a machine. He appears like a man, but he isn't made of flesh'n blood...

Amazing movie. Breakthrough for its extensive use of computer animation.
Okay, it gets a little ridiculous with Sarah spewing her preposterous, self righteous preachy speech about 2/3 way through. Thanks a lot James Cameron!
Otherwise, wow. Linda Hamilton is seriously buff and the nuking of L.A. is bone chilling.
However.... ain't no sex change in this one at all.
If you went to Michelangelo's "David" and knocked off ITs doink with a hammer, then glued on some marble breasts and sandblasted ITs face to look like Venus, IT would still be a piece of marble. Not a woman, or a man.
An IT.
Likewise, the robots in the "Terminator" flicks are robots, not people. They're machines ...whether morphing liquid metal or all those cool silver gears and cables in Ahnuld's arm. Machines.
No sex to change. No change.

Although he is a machine he is in male form, and he changes to female, so it is transgender.
