The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

This movie was written by a trans woman and is a metaphor canonically for trans oppression. Theres a reason why the oppressed find meaning in its symbols as they are often similar. Imagine the shock on peoples faces that reblogged this and had no idea of that.

The entire thing about the appearance and role of a person’s Matrix avatar being independent of their’s actual self is also a straightforward metaphor for the nature of gender identity. The avatar you inhabit in the Matrix is merely a digital projection of your “residual self-image”.
