didn't they violently murder the lesbian of colour in Atomic Blonde after putting all those baity wlw scenes in the trailer?
The way you formulated this ask, there is no way my answer isn’t going to be considered problematic, because if I say “Yes but–” it won’t mean anything since I’m trying to justify the murder of a lesbian of color right? That’s how tumblr works.
But anyway, you asked so I’m gonna answer. Short answer? Yes, she gets murdered. Violently? I mean, yes since it’s a murder but considering the brutal (VERY brutal) ways people are killed in this movie, her death is definitely the least violent. It also happens at the end of her character arc. She doesn’t die for Lorraine’s pain (manpain if she were a man).
“Baity” wlw scenes? No. They aren’t baity, since Lorraine and Delphine’s is the central relationship of the movie lol. Sure, it’s an action/spy movie, the focus is on the action, but you can bet their relationship has much more depth than any “love story” in any James Bond or Mission Impossible or whatever Straight White Action Hero movie. And Delphine is an actual character, not a blank canvas that is just there to titillate the audience with a sex scene. Also, Lorraine is pretty much cold and detached throughout the entire run of the movie. The scenes she shows her emotions the most in? Yes, with Delphine or revolving around Delphine. Anything but baity imo.
Anyway, this is my answer. Make of that what you will.
