The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.

TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

not blatantly transphobic, but reinforcing negative stereotypes of trans people in a weird, roundabout way, that will certainly effect childrens perceptions, yes, very disappointing to hear

Good god I really hoped that we as a culture would have by now gotten the obnoxious crossdressing comedy thing that I remember plaguing TV during the 90’s (same as the “two guys waking up next to each other, cue SCREEEAM”). Even more seeing how the first teasers played really heavily into “same-sex parents are totally normal" which got my hopes up and to hear of this issue and experience is really disappointing, to say the least.

Especially since it still reinforces the issue of feminizing villains/coding them female (even if the main character would be a female which is touched upon in here: http://youtu.be/zXKuF2vFeQo?t=4m25s) and the fact that I seriously can’t remember a crossdressing male character who wouldn’t be either evil and/or played as laughs. If there are some (and I hope they are) in my memory they’re overflooded by the “men that wear skirts are sooooo hilarious and sad but also kinda icky, ewwww!" characters of the past decade.

This deserves so many reblogs.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

the cloudy cataract look made me feel so uneasy because I thought I was looking at a corpse’s eyes, but the best part about this is no one has any idea why they got fried like that (and he is very much alive)

THIS WAS A CHILDRENS MOVIE

A CHILDRENS BIBLE MOVIE

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Amen

FUN FACT: in hebrew, “feet” is a euphemism for genitals.

so if you ever see “washing feet” in the bible, it, uh. yeah.

(source is my old bible class textbook which i don’t have on me anymore :( )

HOLY SHIT WHAT

I MEAN CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I REMEMBER READING A STORY IN THE BIBLE WHERE JESUS CLEANED THE ‘FEET’ OF A LADY PROSTITUTE INFRONT OF HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WHO GOT SERIOUSLY GROSSED OUT. THEM GETTING REALLY SUPER GROSSED OUT BY THAT NEVER MADE SENSE TO ME UNTIL NOW.

JESUS CHRIST JESUS.

YOU NASTY.
