    Well, 30 random dudes went into a ring and...I can only say the winner will be back at London drinking Martinis with his new Million Dollar belt.

    You could just as easily say that the Red Pill is skepticism because the movies are about waking up and realizing that everything you've been raised to believe is a lie. Or that it was anything that fit a "because of this, the pill is this" format; because humans are really really good at fitting things to fit their view/what they want to see.
    Yes, and since the film was made by two trans people, it's very easy to see where they got the idea for that

    Both are, last I checked. I think one came out later than the other

    If they haven't outright said it, all you're doing is inserting your own opinion. If you're not, and they DID say that? Then hey! I don't frankly care, but it's a nice bit of context.

    The red pill is estrogen.

    See, the Matrix was written by two Trans-individuals, and there are a lot of references to the Trans experience within it. One of those references is in the Red pill-Blue pill scene. At the time, Estrogen pills were red colored.
    Both did not transition until after the original movie. Granted, this does not mean they weren't struggling with identity issues, but the first Matrix movie was clearly marketed as a film by "The Wachowskis Brothers".

    Also, I did not find any source that confirms this theory, aside from it being a theory made by a writer named Hannah DuVoix in 2012 who outright avoided implying that it was the Wachowskis' intent, that information found in an article by Tom Hawking about MRAs. Now if you know a much better source, I would greatly appreciate reading it as the theory itself is pretty interesting.

    Nah, it's just a theory, but it's a very convincing one.

    I mean, the Legends of Tomorrow do that on a daily basis. Always seems to work out for them. (Itís because straight people screw up time travel)

    I love dealing with trespassers at my job. The look of terror on their faces is always hilarious.

    Must be. No, I've heard from people that Legends is the best one to get into, because it's so off-the-wall and entertaining, but I've never been able to get into it.

    I've seen the first two seasons and enjoyed them for all their goofy shenanigans. Then I just kinda dropped it, but it's around that time that I dropped out of all the Arrowverse shows.

    What do you mean by over-analyse exactly?

    A trans reading of the work of two prominent trans creators isn't a deep pull.

    legends of tomorrow is by far my favorite of the DCW shows.

    the flash really fell off in recent seasons.

    arrow was something of a yo-yo with great highs but cringy lows.

    never watched black lightning so i can't judge.

    and batwoman is............well there are enough youtube reviews to let you know of the ........ahem....."quality" of that show.

    "legends" knows what it is and wants to be and embraces it. it also helps that it allowed matt Ryan to take up the role of john constintine again, since his show got canned and a lot of people love him in the role, myself included.

    Mashle continues to be a hilariously awesome manga. I love it.
