Queer Theory

Boys Don't Cry is so sad, so depressing, and ultimately, like all queer/gay/bi/lesbo/trans/perverse films, the characters all ended up dead or totally fucked up. So this is queer theory. So this is a story of a queer life. Theories are all about stereotypes and limitations. The researching part can be damn interesting, but it's all the same. Brandon Teena/Teena Brandon just reminds me of a particular butch friend. Saibu/captain joe. I have never imagined myself to be a butch/lesbian, but hey, this film, through transgender gaze, affects me deeply. When you regard yourself as a guy, and gets raped by guys, can be very depressing (of course gays think otherwise). When will the discrimination end? When will queers be considered normal? It will never happen I suppose.
