Horrible
13 February 2020 | by adriwillsimsSee all my reviews

As someone who is dating a trans partner and identifies as nb, this movie was horrible. It represents heavily towards terf mentality and plays off the idea conservatives have about the who bathroom fiasco, when the big issue is predatory men.
