If the Matrix is so good, why isn't there a Matrix 2?

Trans gofundme thoughts and questions 

Okay quick question why don't most trans people who need surgery get into a group and start donating money each month to a person's gofundme until they are expenses are covered? I know a lot of people are in a bad place financially but yeah even a currency unit a month could make a difference if a lot of people get together.

queer cinema, disability, 4 Feet High, + 

"Sundance 2021: “4 Feet High” Is a Monumental Work of Queer Disabled Media"

"Directed by María Belén Poncio and Rosario Perazolo Masjoan, 4 Feet High follows Juana, a 17-year-old girl with blue hair who uses a wheelchair and is bursting with teenage horniness. Upon starting a new school, she befriends a group of queer student activists who are fighting for proper sex education. But while they push for classroom sex ed, Juana begins her own hands on education — to mixed results.

Juana is played by Marisol Agostina Irigoyen, a first-time actor you’d never believe was a first-time actor based on her charming on-camera ease and well of complicated emotions. During the post-screening Q&A, Rosario Perazolo Masjoan, who herself uses a wheelchair, spoke about the importance of casting actors with disabilities to play characters with disabilities. She also noted how inaccessible in-person casting sessions create yet another difficulty for actors with disabilities."

"In one of the series’ best moments, a guy without a disability that she’s flirting with calls her amazing. She bristles. It sounds too much like the woman who just gushed about how she’s an inspiration. She tells the guy not to say that and he asks why. 'Because we don’t say those things to people we want to kiss.'"

donation post, mutual aid, death 

I’m struggling to get by. I’m behind on rent and utilities, and I still owe my roommate, who’s planning to move, for paying our shares some months ago. I mainly do postmates deliveries on my bike for extra cash. Any help is appreciated. I need to be there by Thursday for the funeral service. Please help by donating or sharing.

there was a little historical blip where white bourgeois people could move out of their parents' houses immediately pretty young, in the vast sea of history where multi-generational homes were normative, and it lasted exactly long enough to completely wipe out white boomer parents' knowledge of how to cohabitate with adult offspring without abusing and infantilizing them

Thinking of leaving my partner some nice voice messages since they are not feeling so well
