    As an ex-transsexual it's reptilian programming like this on the fringes that seduced me... Orson Welles, Biblical title... come on you dumb Goyims! Wake the fuck up!

    @tomT024 You're really preaching to the choir here, huh? You're bound to get lots of support. Oh wait, you're not at all. Troll someplace else, please! :)

    @spiderhgoodlegs What exactly is misleading? Maybe you wanted to watch another movie and found the wrong trailer. It was an incredible documentary that started with one direction and became an emotional journey through the mental health of an individual as they both struggle to find their identity. Pretty on-track if you ask me.
