[CN: brief suicidal ideation]
It’s a tradition in queer communities in general and trans communities in particular to analogize stories and turn subtext into text. With so few writers writing about us, and so few writers who dare to write about us getting mainstream attention, seeing ourselves in stories that refuse to name or acknowledge us is mandatory. This is something all humans do, often before we know why we’re doing it.
I have a lot of feelings about Mulan.
