i had this conversation with my friend deegan after i told him how much i loved southern comfort. every film with a trans character follows one of two plotlines: how they died too young/were murdered because they were trans or the trans person is a psychotic murderer driven mad by their desire to be the “opposite” gender. it’s so fucking shitty. even when we’re telling the stories of real people we feel the need to impose these scripts on them. where’s the multiplicity of stories? or representations?
