[Horror Queers] The Villainous Cross-Dresser of ‘Insidious: Chapter 2’
As I delivered the pitch to those walking by, everything seemed promising — librarians were encouraging, booksellers were immensely responsive, I engaged in some thoughtful conversations with fellow authors. Then the other shoe dropped. They trot out questions. But do you drink? But you eat bacon, right?! The woman pointed at my uncovered hair. Unlike my Syrian grandmother and my hijab-wearing cousins, the Islamophobia I experience is stealth.
Nobody ever insults me directly, unlike my family and friends who have experienced pointed stares in the grocery store, jeers in the hallway at school and unkind comments uttered on the street.
A good Muslim is one who seems as American as possible and has completely assimilated. Drinking, yay! Hijabs, boo. A Muslim in Name Only. When I was younger, I would go along to get along, assuring them that I was a good Muslim, a safe Muslim. I care less about their comfort level and more about my own. Yes, I pray in Arabic. Yes, I try to fast during Ramadan. Sorry, not sorry if that makes you uncomfortable. In my book, the main character joins an Islamic study group where she and her friends engage in spirited debates on various scholarly points about the religion.
It tends to mostly be non-Muslims who are fixated on whether or why Islamic women wear a hijab. In my 20s, I finally hired a tutor and learned how to read, write and speak it for myself. Or being too Muslim. Whatever that means. So instead of snapping at the woman who insulted my community, I looked her in the eyes as I gently educated her, briefly explaining that how Muslim women dress is their choice.

The insidious Islamophobia I experience as a white, blond Muslim — and how I combat it

Little does Renai know that Josh has been possessed by the insidious heh heh Bride in Black, and will do anything to stay in the land of the living. Queer Aspect: It is eventually revealed that the Bride in Black is actually a man named Parker Crane, a serial killer who was abused by his mother for acting male, leading him to murder multiple women as an adult while dressed as a woman. I imagine that it might come as a surprise to some people that I chose this film for the next entry in Horror Queers. Its central villain is a man who dresses up like a woman and kills people before eventually being committed to a mental hospital for trying to castrate himself.
She abused her son Parker by dressing him as a girl after her husband left them. In his adult life, she forced him into becoming a serial killer, slaughtering 15 women in the process. After her death, she haunted the Lamberts' house and wants to kill the family. At the end of the movie, she was defeated when the Lambert family's dear friend and powerful psychic Elise used a rocking horse to hit her, putting an end to her reign of terror. An elegant woman dressed in a long white gown-she is the stern and violent ghost of Parker Crane's mother, who spent a lifetime abusing her own son since his childhood, unhappy that nature provided her with a son rather than a daughter, and responsible for triggering his killing spree. She pressures Parker, now possessing Josh's body, to kill the Lamberts, convincing him that it is the only way for him to prevent his host's body from decaying. Michelle's dissatisfaction with the fact that she had a son instead of daughter made her extremely sadistic: Much like Lipstick-Face Demon , she takes enjoyment in the pain and sufferings of others. In fact, her love of torment and punishment extends even to innocent people as after death, she personally antagonize Renai and the others whom stood on her path in the same extent with Lipstick-Faced Demon previously. Ultimately, whatever despair and anger that stemmed from her dissastifaction from having a son instead of daughter made her become a deranged psychopath that wanted nothing but inflict as much suffering on humanity through manipulating his son in his killing sprees.
