Arrow Are you a "mutant"? - June 15th 2009, 07:52 PM


Now, I don't mean literally a mutant. But, the equivalent of mutants.

MUTANTS: Those who were born "different" and face restrictions placed upon them by governmental procedures and prejudices in society.

I'd say two "mutant" groups that I know of are adoptees/orphans and gays. Both have faced pressure from the government. For those that may not know, not many adoptees/orphans have easy access to their birth records like everyone else, plus in some states there's "necessary counseling." I'm sure we all know about prejudices against homosexuals, so there's really no need to delve into it.

Director Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-Men 2) is both an adoptee and homosexual. While many know of the gay metaphors in the films, Singer has also gone on to state that X2 is also an adoptee film - especially in the case of Wolverine.

I'm an adoptee. I'm a mutant, the lone mythic hero who has faced being looked down on numerous times and will go on to face confronting the government to attain my birth records. It's not easy, but hey - it's cool being able to relate eye-to-eye with other mutants, fictional and nonfiction.

So, just kinda wondering, are you a mutant? What other "mutant" groups are there?
