Quick background: my boyfriend is half-Panamanian, half-Mexican; he moved to America with his father and stepmom when he was thirteen, about seven years ago. Obviously, English is his second language and he occasionally admits to being embarrassed by the thickness of his accent.
He has pale skin and is white-passing, but he “doesn’t care about race or ethnicity”. Not from a position of privilege, so much as a position of apathy. Whenever I mention or talk about the importance of diversity in media and representation, he lets me talk about it and listens, but isn’t able to really “get it”.
And then we saw The Book of Life. Twice. In three days.
He loves this movie, you guys. Absolutely adores it. He bought the concept art book in Barnes & Noble at full price the day after we saw it, he’s watching interviews with the cast - in Spanish - and he lunged at the opportunity to see it with me a second time before I had to go home. And today over facebook he told me why:
I don’t just love this movie for its beauty, story, or characters. I love it because it gives the man I love something to connect with.
And I think everyone deserves to have that.
"how about just enjoying the movie" iunno, it looked like everyone in that post enjoyed this part of the movie lmao
LMAO YEAH THATS THE THING there’s literally no arguing on that post i’m checking the notes right now it’s literally all “oh man this is cool :D” and then here comes Captain Killjoy all UM EXCUSE ME,
heterosexuals on deviantart are so protective of their heterosexuality that they’re threatened by gay people so they find it necessary to make everything straight so they can feel better about themselves just LOOK
