WHEN YOU TRY TO PUSH YOUR GLASSES UP BUT END UP ACCIDENTALLY TOUCHING THE LENS AND MAKING IT DIRTY
Ready for my Mizuki cosplay
Tokyo Godfathers accomplished something interesting and very important and valuable to me on a personal level as a trans person in the sense that the story and film direction itself treated Hana (a trans woman character) with respect and regarded her as a woman through and through even while the other characters did not.
This was not a film about ‘how awful it is to be trans’. It didn’t harp on her troubles as a trans woman in a way that was preachy or overbearing, nor did it make her existence as a trans woman in and of itself out to be the most awful thing imaginable.
The other characters disrespected her in the most casual, most REAL ways I’ve ever seen. They called her by slurs and kind of irritably regarded her as simple an odd gay man, and did so in passing, as though it wasn’t a big deal. And it wasn’t, not to them.
The direction was clear that the ones hauling insults and slurs were in the wrong, but without all the ruffle and fuss.
It was something that hit home for me in a way that I actually really appreciated.
Not all discrimination manifests in hate crimes or violence or blatant cruelty.
Sometimes discrimination means people just can’t be bothered to respect you.
The film did a really awesome job of conveying this discrimination in a way that was clearly wrong without setting Hana up to be a miserable victim of the universe plagued with unhappiness for all eternity because she is after all, trans (because as we all know trans people never find happiness)
She was, in fact, easily the most enthusiastic, kind, and downright hilarious members of the cast, and my adoration for her character went far beyond my ability to relate to [a portion of] her struggles.
on a scale of 1 to 10 how compromising is this shot
