i’m still so irked about that dracula thing and i know none of you are in disagreement with me but i’m gonna make you read about it anyway.
if we were talking about the erotic undertones of Nosferatu sucking a woman’s neck it probably wouldn’t even be questioned but if it’s a man we have to be reminded that there’s no way they could have thought about it that way which is especially ridiculous considering that Murnau was gay and Bram Stoker himself may have had relationships with men and Dracula the novel is loaded with these kinds of undertones. and even if the eroticism isn’t “intentional” that doesn’t mean it’s not there. it’s only queer desire that is a result of “reading too much into things” unless it was produced with 100% certifiable intentionalism while the very presence of a man and a woman in some kind of proximity to each other leaves readers/viewers to assume some kind of underlying romantic/sexual tension. the need to constantly and rigidly qualify what actions, relationships, statements, etc can be considered queer and which one’s just aren’t substantive enough to be read as anything other than straight is part of the desperate need for heteronormative culture to heteroize the realm of the homosocial and pretend that nothing in that sphere could ever cross over into a queerer space

I think vladamir putin looks like max from max & ruby
[on diversity in media] I think its social responsibility. I think it’s our responsibility to stand up and say what we want. It think if you look at television in the past two years, it’s becoming the decade of the female. Like, all these new shows with female leads. Even if you look at television, as well as cable, as well as films, there’s been a resurgence, as far as the leading woman in Hollywood, which is great. And I think we’re also at the point now…you know, it’s interesting…x
