"this is the thing - 1 2 or 100 seasons .. if our sisters in the LGBT community are hurting from our words - we have a decision to continue to harm with our words or work together to make a better environment for everyone. - its like someone in the past saying “why is everyone so bothered about the word ‘nigger’ … we been saying that for years. its not a big deal” —- words are tied to culture and culture is always growing and changing — if the Trans community, as they continue to get more visibility in media, says its offensive we have the opportunity to grow with them or boop it."
"No eternal boy-gang can go without a leader, and Rufio—the triple-mohawked Mad-Max punk who runs the Lost Boys as if they’re a queer postapocalyptic skater gang—is way cooler than Pan ever was. Rufio, as you may be able to tell by my enthusiasm for him even twenty years later, is the only point of identification for the kids this film is ostensibly for. He’s the film’s heart, its real hero. Rufio inevitably beefs with Peter, because here’s Pan, as square as square comes, a dad in a boy’s world, claiming to be the mythical departed leader of the gang. It’s only when Rufio is brutally murdered by Hook that our lust for vengeance accommodates us to Robin Williams—i.e., dad—as an actual hero, and even then we accept him only grudgingly."
