At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.
some helpful reminders about sex workers ♥
If sex workers aren’t selling their bodies, what are they selling?
their time, the sexual experience that they’re having/creating, and the products that they create.
The pet preoccupation of young Quebecois filmmaker Xavier Dolan is not, at first glance, particularly interesting. Mothers. Alright, someone says, he has mommy issues. But the issue runs far deeper than writing it off so dismissively. For Dolan, as a queer filmmaker, uses his experience, position, and talent to explore mothers with atypical approaches. The divide between a mother and their queer child is also nothing particularly new, but, for at least I Killed My Mother and Laurence Anyways, his maternal characters transcend the roles given to them to become much more.
