There was a flood in San Antonio during the finals, we can tell what the most important thing is right now.
It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.
Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up.
The X-Men have been an allegory for racism ever since their creation you fucking idiot
If that hasn’t been blatantly obvious from the first issue you picked up, then I don’t know what kinda shit you’re on.
I have heard it is an allegory to many social issues, racialism, homophobia, and more. I think it is all of those it is an allegory to prejudice against any outside group and that is beautiful
I felt that, at points, X-Men definitely refers directly to homophobia. Like also in the movie when Wolverine, Rouge, Iceman and Pyro are at Bobby’s house and Bobby “comes out” about being a mutant to his family. Despite Bobby trying to show his family how cool it cool be, his family was just so disgusted and then his mother asks the stupidest question: “have you tried… not being a mutant?” I have just always hated that part because it shows peoples ignorance and sadly I feel it transfers to too many situations in real life.
