why is it that villains and not protagonists are always the ones breaking gender roles hmmmm
it’s called queercoding and it’s intentional and basically brainwashes kids into having negative associations with those traits
I hate when people ask questions during movies like do you not understand that the movie purposly doesn’t tell you things in order to build suspense
Or you’re just too stupid to understand the references, which is usually my movie experience. I never ask questions and afterwards, if someone saw the film too, other people have understood much more.
Don’t ask. I still get pissed off. This is why I love watching films on my own. It’s the same with music. Ah, lyrics… Like… Other people have ten ears where I have none.

"I don’t want to be mainstream. I like being in the margins. I’m happy where I exist. The things that inspire me I find in the margins. I’m not consciously trying to be marginal, it’s just where I end up and where I live. There’s a gift in there for me and I’m happy to have that gift."

I don’t think that people generally realise what motion picture industry has done to the American Indian, as a matter of fact, all ethnic groups, all minorities, all non-whites. And people just simply don’t realise, just take it for granted that that’s the way people are going to be presented and these clichés are just, I mean on this network every night, well perhaps not every night, but you can see silly renditions of human behaviour, the leering Filipino houseboy, the wily Japanese, the kook or the gook, black man, stupid Indian. It just goes on and on and on. And people actually don’t realise how deeply people are injured by seeing themselves represented, not so much the adults, who are already inured to that kind of pain and pressure, but children. Indian children seeing Indians represented as savage, as ugly, as nasty, vicious, treacherous, drunken. They grow up only with a negative image of themselves and it lasts a lifetime.
