i know ya’ll hate jean grey but i have a soft spot for her.
she is a mutant who doesn’t understand her potential.
if this was real life,
she would be the person who finally became fed up.
Phoenix Force would be born and she decided to end everyone.
i know that isn’t the story of jean grey/dark phoenix but go with me.
florida republican (shocker!),
says that the trans community is like the x-men…
A Republican lawmaker in Florida called transgender people “mutants and imps” on Monday in an anti-trans rant that appeared to almost imitate vitriolic lines from X-Men movies.
Florida Rep. Webster Barnaby shared anti-trans views at the state capitol while lawmakers deliberated House Bill 1521, a piece of legislation that would criminalize trans people for using public bathrooms that don’t correspond to their sex assigned at birth.
“I’m looking at society today and it’s like I’m watching an X-Men movie,” Barnaby said at the start of his speech.
“It’s like we have mutants living among us on planet earth,” Barnaby continued. “That’s a fact: we have people that live among us today on Planet Earth that are happy to display themselves as if they were mutants from another planet.”
He went on to compare trans people to “demons and imps who come and parade before us and pretend that you are part of this world.” (Barnaby has since apologized to the “trans community,” and didn’t respond to a VICE News request for comment.)
shiiiiiiiid being called an x-men is a compliment imo.
the underlying point of the x men was to represent those who are different.
those who are rejected by society and even though oppressed,
they were still trying to save humankind.
a thankless job at that.

i know one thing,
gays and trans have a few superpowers:
Keeping these jackals hella pressed
Living rent-free in their minds
Having more spendable income than our straight counterparts
sounds like being a mutant has its upside.
call me a mutant cause every tongue that rises against me falls.
lowkey: florida is so ghetto.
why do people live there?
