the US is unreal like girls cant wear shorts to school, you can literally lose your job for being gay, and unarmed black children are brutally murdered on the regular but old white ppl r still like “what a beautiful country. i can freely carry a gun for no reason and some of our mountains look like presidents. god bless”
im really interested in zombie apocalypse media as a projection and extension of young american male craving for power-based survival-of-the-fittest type narratives that celebrate violence and dehumanization of the other
It makes sense: the first Godzilla craze in japan reflected the fear they felt about the danger of nuclear radiation.
I dislike how survival horror used to be a genre stocked with female heroes, where men who couldn’t get along with others died, and now has become the opposite and are fantasies of dudes who don’t like other people to pretend that in a just post-societal world their awesome individuality would be recognized.
