What would be the message after the series is over?
what is it about white men!!!!! you put them behind a camera and they are suddenly like “GET ME A BREAST TO FILM!!!!!!!”
What does it mean that media has such control of our imaginations that they don’t want to accept that there are conscious manipulations taking place and that, in fact, we want to reserve particularly for the arena of movie making a certain sense of magic?
A certain sense that reality is being documented and, again, you know, I think that part of the power of cultural criticism and cultural studies has been it’s sort of political intervention as a force in American society to say, there really is a conscious manipulation of representations.
And it’s not about magical thinking, it’s not about like
pure imagination, creativity, it’s about people consciously knowing what kinds of images will produce a certain kind of impact.
Nobody wants to lay claim to consciously constructing these images that perpetuate white supremacy, racism, etc. And the ironic thing is that I can sit in classrooms in universities where my students don’t want to accept that someone consciously creates that representation.
let’s start a “queer kids identifying with monsters and villains because we grew up watching queercoded bad guys in every show and movie” club
like this is a thing that i think a lot of queer people do without realising even before they know they’re queer. i think the formula is that if you ever loved a villain chances are you’re most likely not straight. bc when i try to explain the love of villains to straight people they dont fully get it
Clive Barker said this was why he wrote sympathetic monsters, and why he thought gay people responded to them, because they had been treated like monsters all their lives. (This was in the 1980s.)
person: Pokemon is such a childish game, why are you playing it?
another post about a song on my show that I can’t get out of my head

I think we can all agree that Toph is the best. Case closed.
i thought pansexuality disregarded gender identity and focused on their identity as a person, but im just a cishet fuccboi and i think im wrong
This is kinda what I thought but I don’t get how it’s different than being bi so I’m probably wrong too
Supposedly it’s an alternative that does not imply a gender binary.
However I don’t use bi to imply a gender binary so eh
Yea Ola!! Piping in w/ this link that hopefully the OP will see wrt why it’s definitely offensive and wrong to suggest that “bisexual” inherently implies a gender binary. It’s a common accusation directed at us esp by some holier-than-thou pan people
I think part of the confusion also stems from the fact that the word trans is sometimes used by non-binary people, so while trans women or trans men would fall under the binary categories of attraction bi people are supposedly into they’re allegedly not attracted to non-binary people. or something. It’s all bullshit though! For me it’s always just meant that I disregard gender as a deciding factor re: whether or not I’d partner up with someone.
Except men now that I completely mistrust them ohoho
