Re: LGBTQ Thoughts [movie spoilers]

Everyday life and struggle for survival might have had just as much impact on Eli's appearance as his need for realising his inner feelings. For example, if he finds out that appearing as a girl makes it easier to evoke peoples symphaty in order to come close to them so he can nom them, then he'll d...

Re: LGBTQ Thoughts [movie spoilers]

But I'm glad Klesk did. It drew attention to the casual use of gender stereotyping. On the contrary, since gender is one of the dynamic factors in the story, interesting to look into how JAL go about this, how Eli and Oskar interact etcetera. Eli of the film is a boy who was neutered before spermar...

Re: LGBTQ Thoughts [movie spoilers]

Yep. Your niece is being herself. Since the battle lines are all drawn and not moving, I was going to let this thread rest, but casting your niece as "a girl behaving boyish" reminds me of how far into left field the thread has drifted. It seems to me a collection of gender stereotyping that is ini...

Let me present two years old Franklin B. Roosevelt: :lol:

However that picture was taken 100 years after Eli's birth, and in a different country.

Re: LGBTQ Thoughts [movie spoilers]

but that the whole of the dialogue (including the focus on advice for concrete action) strikes me as more "older brother" than any other particular role. The film shows that Eli is a neutered boy, and he repeatedly tells Oskar he's not a girl. So the boyish behaviour of Eli just follows nicely suit...

Re: LGBTQ Thoughts [movie spoilers]

agree with you both, but his/her advice to hit back didn't seem masculine or feminine to me, Just "Eli". It isn't any particular incident that does it, it is the sum. Eli show boyish behaviour at times, he uses every opportunity to say that he isn't a girl, and at last he show himself as a neutered...

I've always viewed LTROI as a tale about children who happens to have a vampire in it, so I agree with lombano in this one. It wan't the vampire ho asked Oskar what he was doing, it was the awakening child.

Re: An Argument against Thesis M

My finger really, really objects to having been smashed in a case sealer last night. My metacognition suggests I probably shouldn't have used that kind of language when this happened, there being ladies present, but just at that moment, that stupid machine whose only purpose in existence is to fold...

Re: An Argument against Thesis M

Of course, the society and environment you grow up in form you on a very profound level, and have great impact on how you perceive the surroundings, including art. And what you prefer to call "reality". When does the "objective reality" start? Is there any such thing?
