It’s not that I think dichotomies like “asexual”/“allosexual” and “voluntary celibate”/“involuntary celibate” are meaningless. But I find them, at best, an awkward fit for my own experience.
Ultimately, the movie respects its characters, and that's what's most important.
I dislike toxic masculinity in heroes, but am much more tolerant of it in supporting characters. Why?
A remarkably timeless movie, it deals with issues that are still relevant and has two main characters who both embody ace themes, albeit in very different ways.
