“I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’”
— Toni Morrison (via ethiopienne)

the use of trans women as a punchline in comedies is so predictable and disgustingly common that i am honestly surprised when it doesn’t happen in a show

Mischief Night (2014 movie) is one of the best films i’ve seen in a long time

it completely upends the generic slasher flick with the babysitter in distress, and ends up being spooky, funny, existential, and feminist all at the same time

seriously it’s fucking amazing

Kraina Grzybow is giving me survivor/trauma feelings

like after rewatching it several times with the subtitles on it is starting to make sense to me

you have Agatha, the main character, who is lost in an escapist “Mushroomland” after experiencing some sort of trauma— there are many warnings about how Mushroomland is dangerous and not quite what it seems

there are these moments in which Agatha as a shadow/silhouette, speaking with a distorted voice, plays her “mother”, who describes what sounds like Agatha being kidnapped/disappearing for some nefarious purpose

her companion, Maggie the Squirrel, acts as a surrogate mother or substitute parent, but she is twisted and flawed in a lot of ways. (i am guessing Maggie represents a somewhat kinder version of Agatha’s captor, embodying a conditional love that is unreasonable and weirdly sexual)

and then you have the Jeans Man, who is like a Pied Piper figure of sorts

all of this is framed in a retro style of pseudo educational, repressive government television similar to what people in Poland experienced during the Cold War

(idk if it would help other people. i am still processing. also if you are scared easily you should avoid it, it has some jump scares and unsettling moments. for me, though, it is weirdly comforting)

i’m so sick of this cult of parenthood in which the parent, who is a fully-grown and capable adult, is somehow the victim of their child, who can barely verbalize their feelings, much less feed themselves

sometimes you don’t need a bunch of reasons to stay alive

you just need one to get you through today

you can worry about tomorrow later
