no offense to other mutant movies but as far as I can remember Deadpool 2 is the only mutant movie that actually earned the oppression metaphor they used. Many of the X-men movies were metaphors for racism or ableism that sidelined or even vilified or killed the actual group of people the metaphor was supposed to be about.


The entire plot of Deadpool 2 is about the horror and trauma of “conversion” camps, about the horrific people who run them and about community and found family of your peers healing you from that trauma. They didn’t just have a metaphor for LGBT oppression, they had actual LGBT people and I really appreciated it.
