>Looking back at it now, I sounded like freakin’ GamerGate. I sounded like every other aggrieved son of privilege beating his chest because his toys made other people uncomfortable. It’s a weirdly conservative mindset for something that was supposed to be about breaking boundaries. A lot of the people I ran with considered offense to be the whole point of the enterprise, which is kind of bizarre for a film whose main tagline is "don't dream it, be it."

What did he mean by this?
>>
>>85066773
politics aside drag shows were always a blight on the trans community, it's the equivelant of flamboyant, tacky gay pride parades for gays.
this movie is a complete mockery, it's like a 90 minute minstrel show.

He brought up Gamergate so he's probably retarded.

RHPS has aged very well. The music is timeless and the effects they threw in were modest enough that they don't take you out of the show when you're watching today.
>>
I don't get it. The kind of provocative, carnevalesque showmanship has always been a staple of gay culture and still is. I mean, have those people ever been to a gay pride parade? There's a delight in being crass and weird and sticking it to a society that, historically, would have rather not acknowledged they exist.

The comparison with GamerGate is nonsensical. Video game hobbyists aren't and have never been victims of oppression. And GamerGate wasn't about that until fringe right crybabies like Milo Yiannopoulos brought their victim complex into it.

>>85066773
A lot of what he's saying is actually why I tend to enjoy LGBT culture from the 70s like RHPS and early John Waters stuff more than the modern version.
Back then it seemed like it was all about embracing being a degenerate and enjoying being a provocative outcast. Nowadays it's all about forcing acceptance and trying to pass it off as normal.

Gamergate did nothing wrong
Also, women and blacks still don't buy AAA video games, it's a stupid PR stunt to virtue signal about diversity
>>
You don't watch RHPS 100 times because you felt the plot was thought-provoking. You watched it because the songs were nice to sing along with.
>>
>>85070316
>women and blacks still don't buy AAA video games
Women sure, but blacks play video games(GTA, sports game, etc.), although you're technically right, they don't buy them, they steal them.
>>
>>85070316
naw, it's a kike plot to reprogram our culture.

Never attribute to stupidity that which can be adequately explained by jewish malice.
>>
I genuinely don't understand RHPS.

I don't understand what it stands for or why it's supposed to be entertaining.

After spending so many years on imageboards I thought I understood American culture well but I guess not.

drug dealing and shit

It's entry level degeneracy that appeals to americans' puritan sensibilities, because all of the degenerates end up getting totally fucked.

>>85070111

I get what you're trying to say, like Black and White minstrel shows are nothing to do with black people. It's just white guys dressed up as black people in the most offensive way possible, same as how drag artists are non-trans blokes dressed up as comedy "bad" transsexuals.

This.
Trannies look like lanky nerds with long greasy metalhead hair 99% of time.
Drag queens put an ounce of effort into their looks and play the bimbo shit for laughs.
It's the difference between being ironically retarded and actually retarded

Funny thing is most Drag shows were run by strait men, a lot of dude who wear drag are strait white dudes. But the whole movement was co-opted by the gays years later, I know a few closeted drag queens who got pushed out nearly ten years ago.

Are you saying society still doesnt want to acknowledge gays and they are just forcing it on us? Or are you saying gays are very ungrateful and even sadistic towards society?

Is this really surprising? Rocky Horror was the very definition of a fad. Do those ever age well?

Patrician taste

>>85074636
>Provocative fun subversion versus authoritarian groupthink. Everything is been inverted now.
Oh hey, a current generation with different philosophy and goals to the previous generation. How shocking!
>>
> Looking Back, The Rocky Horror Picture Show Hasn't Aged That Well

Yes and no. It's a cult film for a reason, but like many have pointed out, SJWs have normalized stuff in the movie to the point where it's not fun anymore.
>>
>>85070407
The overwhelmingly gaudy production of it is a perfect fit for a story about two prude WASPs discovering something wild. The casting is perfect, too.

The climax is a bit underwhelming, and it doesn't tie together as well as the concept maybe deserves, but it's a thoroughly entertaining movie.
>>
>>85066883
Drag shows are no more anything to do with the "trans community" than the musical Cats is related to the "otherkin community"
>>
>>85069464
I don't understand the compulsion to compare them.
>>
>>85066773
RHPS is a cult classic because it was never popular when it came out and never became popular except for weirdos who do it because it is weird.

RHPS is still weird and either weirdos or people who are pretending to be weird for a day go to it. At best you can say that modern society as degenerated to such a point that there isn't anything shocking or weird in it.

>watch RHPS
>it is tame compared to reality

Gamergate was originally (for a week before /pol/ hijacked it) about /v/ wanting to stick it to shit game reviewers who gave crap games 10/10 scores. Then it became chanology 1.5
