magicaltoad said: imagine how interesting that could be if they were doing anything except civil war. although i don’t. really. is it…just a documentary…..?? where people talk about stuff?? or is it like fancier. idk
yeah. I mean, once I stopped groaning about Civil War (UGH CW), I could feel interest… somewhere, I guess, behind all the confusion at the vagueness of the thing.
I guess I’ll watch it? If only to understand what it is??

This is important because historically, movies about gays and Lesbians always ended with them dying of suicide, going insane, murdering someone and ending up in jail, or being murdered. The only happy ending was if they “went straight.” Now they are being allowed their happy endings, but media portrayals of bisexuals are still mostly showing us as murderers, insanely evil, or cheaters, with again the only happy ending for us being “going monosexual.” And the “B” word is never used.

Just marathoned this masterpiece; a postmodern fairy tale about altruism, femininity and breaking the cycles of abuse and learned helplessness.
Heartbreaking and empowering.
