The hilarious double standard “Mexicans are lazy, and too stupid/can’t be bothered to learn English” and “Mexicans are taking all our jobs”. So, you’re saying that you lost your job to a lazy person who doesn’t speak English, how bad at your job were you?
can we talk about how on Star Trek The NExt Generation, Data let his child, pick their own fucking gender!

(Sorry I took so long getting back to you! I just saw this.)
Right? But people are talking about them everywhere I go! And I -just- realized that both shows have transmisogyny in them. Hannibal’s first appearance was in a movie that basically framed Transwomen as desperate, delusional killers who were twisted in all kinds of ways and pitiable in their disease.
And “Pyscho” was about Norman Bates being so attached to his mother he became her. Like, basically, the thing everybody feared was a guy in a dress. Whoo. Can’t wait to see the twenty-first century reboot of that shit.
Wow, I had like blocked out the transmisogyny from the originals almost completely. I had been more disgusted by the positive light two white cis male murderers were being portrayed in.
I think it says a lot that these guys are heroes, they have dedicated fans who love them. I don’t understand that. It disgusts and horrifies me.
Oh, and this is only slightly related, but I noticed that in some horror movies, like Pet Sematary and Mama, if the monster is female, she’ll be played by a cisguy. The director from Pet Sematary even commented on this saying it was to make that character more grotesque.
They’re afraid of us and think we’re inhuman. Not that any Trans person didn’t know that already. But…damn, way to make it literal.
I never thought of Hannibal as a hero. He was clever and smart but he killed and ate people. I’ve never watched any of the Psycho films but I’ve heard enough about Bates that I never thought of him as more heroic than Jason Voorhees, add in the crossdressing and I had even less desire to watch them.
What disturbs me even more than fans of fictional murderers are fans of real life murderers.
I didn’t know that about Pet Sematary. The director’s comments and their implications are, sadly, not surprising.
