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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
i watched this too in the cinema some time back.... heard the family sued the filmin company for tellin the wrong story....
yeah... it's semi biological.. not exactly true, they kinda immortalised brandon (that dyke). Actually he's much worse in real life i reckon. Are all queers problematic? why are all queers depicted in the film sad?
