who wore it better
Please see the Boxtrolls for yourself and form your own opinions about the movie. Stop falling into this herd mentality, “Oh if someone says this than it must be true. Clearly this is the right way to feel”
Go out and experience it for yourself. Don’t just idly consume what others have to say as fact. If you watch it and come to the same conclusion, then great, it’s not a movie for you. If you see it and you don’t come to the same conclusion, great, good for you!
There are some problematic elements in that movie, but WOAH. SURPRISE! MOST MOVIES HAVE PROBLEMATIC THINGS IN THEM. I’m a 50/50 black and mexican woman. There are problems with each of these things in most media today!!! There are problems outside the media, in real life!! But I think that post that everyone is spreading around makes it much worse than it actually is in the movie.
Old tropes die slowly, but creating discussion about them helps to change things for the future!!! That’s good! Talk about the bad stuff. Let them know that making those kinds of jokes isn’t okay though discussion!
Don’t doom a smaller studio for a mistake, when they have been consistently trying to push the visuals and storytelling in modern american films. Let them know in a way that gives them a chance to move forward from here, rather then ruining them in a way that could mean no more movies from them.
I think that the messages in the rest of the film have great merit. I don’t want to give anything away, but please please please please please, EXPERIENCE THINGS FOR YOURSELF AND DONT JUST IDLY CONSUME OTHERS OPINIONS!!! MAKE YOUR OWN.
Don’t let this post about The Boxtrolls being transmisogynistic keep you from watching and enjoying the movie.
Don’t be a sheep and let someone else’s opinion get to your head and create an idea of a film maybe you haven’t even seen . Go see the movie first and then construct YOUR OWN opinion of this character in question and the film in general.
Because seriously, do you think a studio that has featured an openly gay character in one of their movies, and a couple of gay men on the trailer for Boxtrolls could be transmysoginist?
Does the person who wrote that post even know the real dept of the term “Misogyny”?
It makes me sad the number of notes that post has, honestly.
Please don’t let collective thinking dictate your beliefs and opinions! Have some individual thinking.
PS: This is a message from someone who has seen the movie and honestly didn’t feel any kind of hate directed towards the trans community in any way.
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 without warning of what’s in it. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.
seriously though there’s a bit of a disproportionate retribution going on in here when you decide to boycott someone’s labor of love that took years to make
like fuck you very much
thanks for shitting on the hard work of the many people behind the scenes
Really? That’s so good to hear oh man! I wasn’t sure if other people would be able to do that y’know ‘cause I already knew what he was saying but wow that’s cool thank you! OvO
Aww what? When? What happened that was transmisogynistic??
*sweats over the realization that not that many people actually like or respect cartoons and think they’re too childish to be entertaining or cool and there’s a good chance I’ve been forcing my own agenda on all my friends*
