BLUE-PILLED: Meet The Wachowski “Brothers”

You can’t make this stuff up folks….

I wish you could, because then it would just be a stupid movie script and life would go back to normal.

Sadly, this is real.

Meet the Wachowski Brothers….who are now the Wachowski Sisters.

Yes, as grown adults both chose to “transition” into ladies midway through life, and let’s just say while they were not great looking men they certainly are even more comely looking “ladies”.

Take a look at this wild one:

Grok confirms:

The Wachowski Brothers, now known as the Wachowski Sisters, Lana and Lilly, have had a significant impact on the film industry with their imaginative storytelling and groundbreaking visual effects. They are best known for creating the iconic Matrix trilogy and other popular projects like V for Vendetta and Cloud Atlas.

Filmography and Popular Projects:
The Matrix Trilogy (1999-2003): This science fiction series is undoubtedly their most famous work. The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, and The Matrix Revolutions revolutionized the action genre with their innovative use of “bullet time” and philosophical themes about the nature of reality.
V for Vendetta (2005): Based on a graphic novel by Alan Moore, this dystopian political thriller became a cult classic for its portrayal of a vigilante fighting against a fascist government.
Cloud Atlas (2012): An ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell’s novel, this film explores the interconnectedness of human lives across time and space, featuring an ensemble cast playing multiple roles in different eras.

Transition and Public Reception:Lana and Lilly both came out as transgender women, with Lana coming out in 2012 and Lilly following in 2016. The sisters have been vocal about their experiences and have used their platform to advocate for transgender rights and visibility.
Lilly Wachowski revealed in a statement to the Windy City Media Group that her reality is one of constant transition, acknowledging the infinite space between male and female, much like the binary of zero and one in the digital world. She expressed gratitude for the support of her family, especially her sister Lana, who had transitioned years before.

Public reception has been mixed. While many fans and critics have praised the sisters for their bravery and honesty, there has also been backlash and criticism, particularly in the form of transphobic comments and attempts to discredit their work.

In response to the backlash, the sisters have continued to create and advocate for their community, with their work often exploring themes of identity, transformation, and the struggle for freedom. Their contributions to film and television have left a lasting impact on popular culture, and they continue to inspire new generations of filmmakers and storytellers.

Folks, I don’t how to say this other than to say….what are the odds?

It’s extremely rare to have ONE family member who is trans (or at least it used to be until about 5 years ago), but to have two?

Two brothers?

BOTH trans and both now suddenly women?

Just a random fluke of nature?

Sorry, I don’t buy it.

A fan theory on “why”:

People Magazine giddily covered the story of the dual “transitions”:

The Wachowskis are siblings, partners in Hollywood, and, most important, each other’s support system.

Lilly Wachowski, 48, came out as transgender on Tuesday, saying that she feels lucky “having the support of my family.” Lilly’s sister Lana, directing partner for films like The Matrix trilogy and 2015’s Jupiter Ascending, is also a transgender woman.

While the pair’s journey to and through Hollywood success has been an interesting one, they were always by each other’s sides.

As children, Lana and Lilly grew up with their two sisters in Chicago. Early on, the pair developed an affinity for film and would spend hours with their parents at the cinema.

It was during her youth, while in third grade, that Lana first became conscious of her gender, she told The New Yorker in 2012.

“I have a formative memory of walking through the girls’ line and hesitating, knowing that my clothes didn’t match,” Lana said of Catholic school. “But as I continued on I felt I did not belong in the other line, so I just stopped in between them. I stood for a long moment with everyone staring at me, including the nun. She told me to get in line. I was stuck — I couldn’t move. I think some unconscious part of me figured I was exactly where I belonged: betwixt.”

Just wacky filmmakers?

Or does their connection run deep?

Check this out:

“V For Vendetta” is a film that doesn’t get nearly enough attention, especially for its ties to what is happening in our world the last 3-4 years:

Of course now they say “The Matrix” was really all about …… being transgender!

Oh of course it was!

Sure, how could I have missed it?

I thought it was about a control matrix and plugging people into the system so much that they become unaware of their true surroundings and living a fake life in a computer Matrix?

Now I see it was mostly about being a tranny!

From Deadline:

The Matrix co-director Lilly Wachowski is giving fans the red pill on what the film trilogy is really about – transformation and being transgender.

“That was the original intention. But the world wasn’t quite ready,” says Lilly Wachowski, who revealed her status as transgender along with her sister and Matrix co-director Lana after the films came out.

Wachowski confirmed long-running fan theories about the film trilogy in a Netflix video earlier this week. “I’m glad that it has gotten out,” she said.

The upcoming Matrix 4, expected in 2022, will be directed by Lana Wachowski and will feature original cast members Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.

The first Matrix film came out in 1999. “The corporate world wasn’t ready,” said Lilly. But, she added, transgender people understood its intent and often thanked the director.

She cited Switch, a character in the first film, as representative of the film’s intent to be about transformation. In the original script, the character changed genders upon entering the Matrix – a male in the “real” world, a female in The Matrix. Warner Bros. nixed the idea and decided on just one gender or the character in the original film.

And from the BBC:

The Matrix films are about being transgender, the trilogy’s co-director says.

“That was the original intention but the world wasn’t quite ready,” says Lilly Wachowski, who came out as trans along with her sister Lana after the films came out.

Fans have speculated about potential meanings behind the iconic films and Lilly confirmed the theory to Netflix.

“I’m glad that it has gotten out,” she said.

The Matrix first hit screens in 1999, when Lilly says “the corporate world wasn’t ready” for an allegory – a story that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning – about transgender people.

But the director says the films have always been “meaningful” for trans people.

“They come up to me and say these movies saved my life.

“I’m grateful I can be throwing them a rope to help them along their journey.”

So….are you going to take the Red Pill?

I have to confess, after seeing all of this I’m not really even sure what that means anymore!

I do know this….the original Matrix movie was great.

Matrix #4?

Not so great.

So I think this Tweet is how we have to wrap this story up:
