coming out to your parents

If you try for one second to tell me the X-Men isn’t an allegory for the gay rights movement, I will smack you. They weren’t even remotely subtle about this.

The mutants have always been an allegory for anyone that didn’t fit in to society. The folks who drew the comics made a point of that early on.

It’s not just the gay rights movement, its not just kids trying to “come out” to their parents.  Its people being mistreated by the government, put away, forced to pretend to be “normal”, systematically oppressed, even killed for who they are because the powers that be cant control it.  It’s an allegory for blacks, gays, the disabled (mentally and physically), women, and anyone really who isnt a white man at the top of the food chain.

Seriously guys… Malcom X and Martin Luther King Jr are Professor X and Magneto. Legacy virus is HIV. X-men is a flawless comic.

X-men MOVIES are pretty flawed. In a series that depicts the allegory of being oppressed by your race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or anything else, there seems to be a large focus on straight white guys.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.
"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."
"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!

FACT: Genderfluid people can change their appearance at will, but only on the inside.

FICTION
I struggled with balancing my gender fluidity with my physical appearance for a long time.
Not much is more miserable than constantly being uncomfortable in your own skin.
Overtime, I’ve discovered little ways to alter my physical appearance at will, daily if need be.
I’m quite good at balancing my physical appearance with my gender identity.
I am gender fluid.

However, the sad part about this struggle is that its created by todays binary social norm.
The REAL FACT is that gender stereotypes shouldn’t exist!
In fact, I will even go as far as saying gender labels shouldn’t exist!
Gender labels are a mistake!
I should be able to just be myself, wear what I think is cute and express my personality how I see fit, without pressure from anyone to act a certain way or dress a certain way based upon a label I have given or someone else has placed on my gender identity.
Gender identity should be irrelevant.
There would be no struggle for gender equality, if gender simply didn’t exist.

What is so wrong with the idea of a world where people are just people.
Where there are no “boys” and no “girls” … just people.
Imagine a world where your body, your mannerisms & personalities are all uniquely your own without having to be marginalized by gender identity and then rudely enforced by a marginalized social mainstream.

-Elliott Alexzander

Elliot, I respect you but this is kind of a sarcastic post. Earlier, they posted that genderfluid people have retractable claws. It’s just a fun thing they do to make themselves feel good by giving mythical misinformation that makes them feel stronger, like superheroes.

It’s still good to hear about your own personal experiences, though.
