Why does Split hurt?
The title refers to dissociative identity disorder, central to the film’s premise. The villain (James McAvoy) is marketed as scary and deadly because he has multiple personalities.
The film and its marketing vilify an already marginalized group. Millions of people already experience life as multiple, including members of #splitmoviehurts, and we are neither scary nor monsters.
