Bondi Baths, Sydney, Australia, 2011
So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film without warning of what’s in it. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.

in case anyone’s wondering why you shouldn’t wear straight jackets for halloween:
- straight jackets are symbols of the oppression of the mentally ill, they are the embodiment of centuries of violent ableism
- when people were put into straight jackets they lost their autonomy and control over their own body which is a terrifying thing to experience and a loss of basic human rights
- as someone who has been physically and chemically restrained, when i see someone wearing a straight jacket for halloween it says to me that you think the abuses that sane people have perpetuated against me and people like me are a costume you can put on for one night and then take off and go home and never have to think about what it does to a person to be have their most basic rights taken away
- DO IT

I had to let go of someone I love. And I just couldn’t.
