me and my mom were watching one of our PBS channels earlier tonight and after our show ended a documentary came on about the Japanese internment camps during WWII, especially the one that was like an hour or two away from where i live, and an old white lady said “I don’t think we need to apologise, because we had Japanese friends and we knew they weren’t doing anything”
like what the fuck old white lady
i had to fake so many things about myself to try and fit into the tiny box heterosexuality and manhood had for me until i examined my sexuality and gender
straightness and maleness never did anything good for me except while they were actively putting down myself and others
reminder that the matrix trilogy was written and directed by a trans woman (lana wachowski) along with her brother
one of the most influential and iconic sci fi movies was created by a trans woman and MORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!! lana wachowski is a babe and an inspiration, one of the few female directors in hollywood as well as one of the few transgender people in hollywood.
And they originally wrote Switch (the androgynous, bleach-blonde rebel) as trans, using different (but similar-looking) actors inside and outside the Matrix, because their self-image and body didn’t match. The studio vetoed it.
love that feeling when you trip and you’re falling and everything seems to slow down just enough for you to realise that there’s absolutely nothing you can to do stop yourself from hitting the ground
i was gonna make a text post last night and i planned the whole thing out in my head but then when i sat down i couldn’t remember the right wording and so i still haven’t written it
