don’t trust anyone who says something biphobic then when you call them out on it they say “i don’t mean real bisexuals. just the fake bicurious ones”.
Pro Tip: Actually there is no such thing as "fake" bisexuals. There are instead a lot of questioning people, worried people, closeted people, scared people, confused people, all sorts of people … and these are all perfectly normal things to be. Remember, there is no wrong way to be bisexual.
the animation looks really cool, not sure about anything else yet… I think if it does really well it will likely influence other film companies into pushing more Latin@ inclusive plots etc…
having two dudes fight over a beautiful girl isn’t exactly the sort of progressive plot narrative I bite my nails in anticipation for, though, even if the ending ends up being some plot-twisty “woo hoo she chooses/saves the person herself” thing or, whatever
I don’t have good feelings about it from the trailer. For one, it’s being marketed for Halloween, and the conflation of el Día de los Muertos and Halloween is problematic to begin with. Secondly, the skull design seems like it’s being co-opted into a kinda… zombie-ish thing? Could be wrong, but that’s what I picked up from the trailer. Others have said it looks pretty white-ifyied. Yes, there are many white Latin@s. However, if there’s going to be a movie that’s specifically set with Latin@ imagery and characters, it would be damn nice if they didn’t play favorites with light skin.
I would likely be blown away if it was a culturally sensitive film in totality, tbh
we’ll see I guess!
The movie is being created and produced by two Mexicans jsyk.
I am a bit disappointed that this is being marketed to Halloween, but I believe it’s to try and make it more USAfriendly (still gross, but not done under the thoughts of white people thinking Dia de Los Muertos is the same as Halloween, though it might unfortunately spread it)
Yeah… I would say… let’s keep an open mind until it comes out! I can certainly see where some parts of the trailer/marketing are questionable so far, but I don’t get the feeling that it’s a total throwaway the way some movies have been.

Intersex people are not rare, just invisible.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of shame and secrecy within our communities, perpetuating the invisibility. I’ve had doctors tell me over and over again that I’d never meet anyone else like me. (Thankfully, that was not the case.) So many intersex people like me have been instructed by our doctors, parents, and friends not to tell anyone about our conditions, which makes us feel shameful and unworthy.
I’ve been poked, prodded, and gawked at by so many doctors, it’s enough to make anyone feel like a science experiment. They say how excited they are to meet someone like you, they’ll “never meet another person like this, ever.” But when they say that to you as a kid, all you hear is “you’re a freak.”
