While I was writing my piece on bierasure and biphobia in Basic Instinct (1992) for Bitch Flicks, my partner offered to take screenshots of some of the scenes I wrote about. They ended up taking way more than we needed, so here are a few of my favorites:

what-about-me

Nick, concerned, asks a detective, “What about me?” Man makes everything about himself, news at 11.

What about you, Nick? Nick has male privilege for DAYS. He comes in here with his dead eyes (I’d be dead on the inside too, Mike Doug), like “what about me, the cis straight hero, Nick Curran, detective and red-blooded male.” No one CARES, Nick.

Contains spoilers.

Friendly reminder from your neighborhood queer AFAB type that “lesbian” is not the same as “queer women” ~~~~~☆

THAT SAID, this genius list of fake queer-lady horror films is hilarious (and BTQ inclusive):

Or, “Why is Florence + the Machine’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful the soundtrack to my trash ship?”

Spoilers for X-Men First Class (major), X-Men Days of Future Past (moderate), NBC Hannibal (mild), and Battlestar Galactica (mild). Contains gifs; discussions of music and films featuring abusive relationships, alcohol abuse, and moderate violence; links to music videos with disturbing imagery of the same nature. I’m sure that Florence Welch actually wrote her music about her experiences and not about fandom, but seriously, have you seen the X-Men prequels? Or NBC Hannibal? Do you see?

There appears to be no one definition of a trash ship*, so my definition is a ‘ship that you know is objectively bad, either because the characters bring out the worst in each other or because one of the characters is literally a cannibal serial killer (or somesuch). Cherik (Charles Xavier/Erik Lensherr)? Trash ship.Starbuck/Apollo? Trash Battlestar. Hannigram (Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham)? Trash spiral-galaxy.

Best of ALC, Part 3

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but ALC is the translation gift that keeps on giving.

Friendly reminder that none of these entries are incorrect translations and that I’m glad that ALC covers so much English-language slang; the humor lies in the unexpectedly enthusiastic, oddly phrased, or out of date translations.

Part 1 | Part 2
