* AuthorsSavingThrow: Despite some contingencies among LGBTQ+ activists as to whether or not this movie's representation of them holds up, it's important to remember that Frank is the only Transylvanian who commits any seriously monstrous crimes like murder and rape, not to mention is repeatedly called out for it, first by Columbia's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and later when Riff Raff tells him his "lifestyle's too extreme." Riff Raff and Magenta's relationship is [[BrotherSisterIncest questionable]] at best and the worst thing they do is kill [[spoiler:kill Rocky and Columbia]] out of spite (let's be fair, [[spoiler:Frank]] had it coming).

** Not to mention Frank dressing most of the characters as him and proceeding to have an elaborate floor show with them. It makes sense from a character standpoint that Frank would treat all of them as his personal play things, dressing them up and making them put on a show for his own entertainment, but [[note]]WHERE DO YOU MASTURBATE??[[/note]]in an empty house?

Not helping things is Richard O'Brien's apparent belief that transgender individuals all occupy a third gender, despite personally identifying as non-binary.
