Columnist Alan Lopuszynski agrees with my just-posted WIRED observation about the girl-on-girl subtext in the Wachowski movies, but adds, “No need to stop at Bound and V for Vendetta, really…what about the entire world of The Matrix, in which androgynous freedom fighters strive to awaken from a fantasy world in which everything they know is a lie? Where ruthless, society-controlling agents (hmmm…who are all men) try to force the ‘we just want to live our lives the way we want’ rebels into ‘normal’ lives of acceptance? What about the perponderance of fetish gear? I’ll tell you, when news Larry’s red-pill lifestyle broke between Matrix and Matrix Reloaded, a lot of the more confusing motivations of that entire franchise became very clear indeed.”
