look-
a post,


i did some googling to see if other people got that vibe and found this

quote:

There’s also what I think is supposed to be a non-binary person in the movie; I say “I think” because it’s never explicitly stated that they’re non-binary, but since they sloppily etched a “B” onto the their nametag to turn their name from “Eddy” to “Beddy,” and considering that they also put a thin layer of makeup on their face to juxtapose an otherwise male-presenting body, I think a non-binary person is what the Janiak was going for. They’re portrayed, however, as a morally dubious person who supplies drugs to minors. While Beddy’s part is really small, their inclusion feels kinda gross and problematic, especially considering they’re the only openly non-binary person in the movie, and thus, whether Janiak intended it or not, is the defacto representative of non-binary folk. Look, I’m not the right person to be discussing this, but there’s a long history of trans and non-binary people being portrayed as decietful, manipulative, and otherwise evil and/or morally dubious in media. And Beddy, here, really isn’t helping to shake that image. If you want to know more about what I’m talking about, Lindsay Ellis and Contrapoints have both made videos on this topic that I’d recommend watching.

but... two of the heroes sell drugs... did this person watch the same movie... the whole point is nobody in shadyside had a choice!!

i would agree that the portrayal kinda did lean that way a bit but making a stink about the drugs, tsk tsk

speaking of gay slasher stuff have you seen scream 4? there is a lady in there im pretty sure they were meant to be a lesbian and i google to see if other people agreed with this read but it was mostly people disappointed she wasn't gay because she got pair up with a dude. but the whole thing like kinda, read as a comphet thing to me, like they directly cut to her when explaining the gay rule in modern slashers.

anyway my point re that miki post was that you really don't need to emphasize your trans cred or w/e here, in the thread where many trans ppl post

You're right. I'm sure the cishet male author of a manga that hasn't demonstrated any awareness of gender and sexuality issues beyond the occasional joke is more aware of those issues than an actual trans woman and trans activist, who does real, tangible activism work in the field, and who's a published author of queer and trans fiction.

Silly me.

anyway jokes aside i did not mean 'the authors put more thought into this' as some kind of insult or questioning of your knowledge of trans issues. and if were going with death of the author the amount of thought the author put in doesnt really matter. like idk. that kinda line of logic just always leads to the most toxic, least good faith takes in my experience

Vote shit sandwich or the shit sandwich gets it!


There are separate branches of literary theory that concern themselves with reading and authorial intent. Like, you can analyse how and why someone wrote a certain piece, and that's where the author's thought comes in; and you can analyse the various interpretations of the work, which is where the reader's thought comes in.

Like, to make an overly-simplified example, Lovecraft wrote his whole stuff because he was a racist weirdo who had real bizarre ideas about lots of things; but his work can have dozens of readings, not all of which are racist.

You can dissect and criticise a work and, separately, the authorial intent behind that work, without having the two come into conflict. Of course that becomes a bit difficult when you have living authors who are actively hateful (gently caress you Rowling and Scott Card), but them's the breaks.

(And the "I put more thought into this than the author" was meant to be a kind of self-deprecating "I put way too much thought into this" anyway.)

I feel like if A Monster Wants To Eat Me has it so that it turns out Miko just wanted to eat Hinako the entire time it'd make for a really unsatisfying twist.

I spoke to Yabuki-sensei when I was overseas in Japan shortly before Ayakashi Triangle's debut and he told me this:
"I am close friends with many trans women and what I have realized is that they don't want media that gives a simple portrayal of the trans experience meant to show a mostly non trans audience a positive moral about accepting trans people. They find it at best boring and at worst patronizing. What trans women want is media about having a horny cis girlfriend who owns a cat and tries to make them wear sexy lingerie even though they're most comfortable in sweats and tanktops. I only hope I can meet their expectations."
