2021.10.23 21:43 OKCharon Jack and Jill is an allegory for transgenderism.
Jack and Jill staring Adam Sandler is a layered allegorical metaphor for being transgendered. Hear me out.
Jill is a psychological manifestation and representation of “Jack’s” female self. They’re so close growing up they are essentially one. As children they are in sync. One is never anywhere without the other. They play together, they bathe together, they even sleep together. They are completely inseparable.
When Jack becomes an adolescent more specifically during puberty as he begins to define himself as a sexual being, he becomes resentful and deeply embarrassed by Jill. He is more concerned with fitting in, and finding himself than the feelings of his other female half, or self. She comes to represent everything that is awkward, disgusting, obnoxious, unlikable, and incapable of being loved, in Jack. She has become his mortifying secret. He pushes her away and distances himself from her until he almost entirely separates from her.
He has a family, and a job, and a big house, although he is all but completely emotionally cut off. His only focus is success and validation from a world that may otherwise shun and abandon him, as he has done to Jill. She is alone, depressed, without family or romance. Relegated to a small apartment where she can stay hidden from the world. Until she can no longer be hidden. She begins to manifest. Jack is still deeply in denial of her.
Regardless of his family’s acceptance and embracing her as a warm, fun, loving individual. He hates and resents her for her every quirk. She may be a bit unconventional and at times, somewhat lacking in grace or tact. She is even lacking somewhat in conventional femininity. This represents Jacks belief that despite what is inside of him, he cannot be female, as he is too masculine. He is deeply loathing and relentlessly unforgiving of her every fault, her every misstep, and at her very existence and his connection to her.
Everyone else in the film welcomes her with open loving arms, but Jack cannot look passed his overwhelming dread and embarrassment of her. It’s not until he hopes to use her to seduce Al Pacino that he acknowledges that she is valuable, beautiful, and capable of being loved, by way of the kind words of Pacino. This is also the first and only scene in the movie where Jack knowingly dresses up and takes on the characteristics and persona of Jill. The manifestation of the inner self and the conscious realization of the physical self become one. The veil has been lifted. He comes to accept and love her for what she is, and by extension, himself. She finds love and still maintains the connection with the family. She is accepted entirely by the family of her loved one, down to her physical body, as portrayed by the scene where Fillipe’s family and friends are playing soccer and some of them look up Jills dress and confirm to the audience that in fact “She is a woman!” This is their acceptance of her identity as a valid being separate from physical sex definitions as a direct correlation to, or definition of, “gender” as a construct.
As a metaphor the characters are separate but they are fulfilling one role. These are two physically and emotionally independent characters as a story telling device that are in an allegorical context; one being. The movie even features a cameo from a pre transition “Bruce” Jenner as an actor portraying a role in Al Pacino’s reprisal of Richard III. A play about a physically deformed outcast sibling plotting to usurp the throne of the “better” brother. Perhaps an allusion to Jack’s fear of his other self taking over and replacing his role in his family with another, destroying what he loves about family dynamic and how he understands his life, his inability to come to terms with his belief that he will not be embraced by the outside world, instead being seen as an evil tainted deformity or freak, and his unwillingness toward acceptance of the self as a valid human being in the context of society.
Even the name Jill is a play off the name Jack. Sort of a witty answer to what was given to him. They are one. As a movie about twins it’s overtly bland and sophomoric. The humor is of the gross out genre in a profoundly uncomfortable and garish nature. It lacks much thought and where it purports to have heart it comes across more as somewhat patronizing and underwhelming. As a film about acceptance and coming to terms with one’s own judgment of the self through the eyes of others it is a poignant psychological journey that is deeply thought provoking, and very much ahead of its time.

2021.10.23 21:43 goldglitterbong So because you didn't understand what I was implying that makes me wrong?
Sounds like gaslighting bullshit if you ask me. I hate when they try to move goal posts/invent straw man arguments then fight their own made up argument then act like smug like they "won" something.
Then there's always these two themes of can't handle being wrong and generally trollish type/almost feels as if they're acting in bad faith on purpose. It's just protecting their ego but it's so fucking laaaaaaaaame.
I've always felt that if you need to insult the other person then you've already lost the argument and if someone asking you to explain what you mean triggers you so much then maybe you should think twice about the BS you say.
I know I'm not perfect but I try not to be an asshole for no goddamn reason other than I had a bad day so I'll find someone to take it out on. tldr: Blood suckers, energy vampires, whatever you wanna call them that's what I'm venting about basically. They're annoying I wish them what goes around comes around.

2021.10.23 21:43 gyiren Suggestions on Class Disciplines with Easy Rotations to learn while leveling?
New player here, trying to work through all class stories. Started with the Sith Inquisitor and settled on a Madness Sorcerer after failing heroics from Belsavis onwards with Lightning. I guess i liked the simpler rotation of Madness? Which other class disciplines would you recommend as simple to pick up?
Jedi Guardian - ? Jedi Sentinel - ? Jedi Sage - Balance Jedi Shadow - ? Trooper - ? Smuggler -
Sith Juggernaut - ? Sith Marauder - ? Sith Sorcerer - Madness Sith Assassin - ? Inquisitor - ? Bounty Hunter - ?

I can't figure out how to test this in a reliable way. How did you guys test to see if you have a double-click issue? And what are some ways I can fix it if I do? I updated my firmware completely already.

2021.10.23 21:43 LuisaSairza Did anyone just hear a bunch of gong sounds near Melbourne Central?
Heard a bunch of ringing loud gong sounds at around 11:20am. At first I thought it was the GPO Bourke st clock but then realised that a. It was way louder than it should be and b. It chimed like 20 times, in the middle of the hour, and it was semi irregular. It also was definitely not a tram, as the ringing sound was much lower. Anyone know what it was?

2021.10.23 21:43 hanban05 How tf do you go about dating as an aromantic?
So I (16F) haven't had a non-platonic crush in like, a decade, but lately I've begun realizing that I like one of my friends (16M). I still can't fathom what exactly romantic attraction should feel like, but I imagine that this is close.
The thing is, he might like me back, but even if he does I don't know how to go about it. How would dating work? How would dating START?
Just looking for any advice anyone might have on this 😬🙏

2021.10.23 21:43 random_8743_ Scared of being a woman in STEM
I'm 18 from England, and i've applied for Physics at university. Since I got to a girls school at the moment, I haven't faced too much discrimination against my gender but I've been to some STEM open days and work shops and from the things I've seen, the guys are always taken more seriously than me.
And I've noticed they take me more seriously when I'm wearing heels and have put 10/10 effort into my appearance.
I'm really scared for uni since my course is 80:20 guys:girls. I want to be taken seriously. I know I'm clever, but I don't want people to assume I'm dumb because I'm a girl.
I'm sorry this is kind of all over the place. Pls don't downvote me into oblivion. I'm aware that it's kinda hard to give advice because there's nothing I or you can do, but I feel like I just need someone to listen.

2021.10.23 21:43 kindofalurker10 Why do people in role play and fan fiction know so little about the pit
The flesh pit isn’t just one tourist attraction, it’s a fucking 38837473729911000000000km large superorganism with thousands of species and oddities inside of it, it’s an entire ecosystem, biome and etc
You’d think something like that would be the subject of thousands of documentaries, movies, books, memes. There would probably be many people who’s favorite animal is some monster from the pit or example
And be mentioned in schoolbooks in the same way the Amazon rainforest is mentioned, did you ever see a science or geography or biology schoolbook that didn’t mention the Amazon rainforest or the Sahara of the Arctic?
Also how would she (am talking about the protagonist of down the rabbit hole) miss the 2007 disaster just because she doesn’t live in Texas, that’s like missing Chernobyl because you don’t live in Ukraine, the most famous national park in the world became inoperable, hundreds died in the most horrific ways, and the pit nearly woke up (If the pit nearly waking up isn’t top secret that is), and many industries probably felt the impact of the pits resources like nerve tissue or afrodisiascs becoming atleast temporarily unavailable
