Angelina Jolie Admits "Maleficent" Contains a Scene That's a Metaphor For Rape

Posted: June 12th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Angelina Jolie Admits "Maleficent" Contains a Scene ThatSubmit Comment
Disney's "Maleficent" is performing very well at the box office. But while it's main audience is young girls, many critics believe that the film contains a scene that's meant to represent rape.

SPOILERS AHEAD:

In the scene, Stefan (Sharlto Copley) drugs Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) and cuts off her wings when she falls asleep. He let's her live, but mutilates her in a disturbing and violent way.

Now, during an interview with BBC Radio's Woman's Hour, Jolie confirmed that the scene is in fact a metaphor for rape. "We were very conscious, the writer [Linda Woolverton] and I, that it was a metaphor for rape," she said. "This would be the thing that would make her lose sight. The core of [the film] is abuse, and how the abused have a choice of abusing others or overcoming and remaining loving, open people. The question was asked, 'What could make a woman become so dark? To lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood, and her softness?"

Er, that's a bit of extreme for a metaphor but whatever float your boat Angelina.

She should raise both of her legs while Copley's character is doing her.

Rapists should have their d*cks chopped off along with their f*cking arms chopped off too so they can't possibly imagine they could be wanking to some imaginable scenario and ... their f*cking legs too in case they've got some imminent funny ideas!

"What could make a woman become so dark? To lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood, and her softness?"




Because women aren't capable of innate evil, only men, who live only to do bad things like making women go bad....


Zzzzz..

Brava, this is a great example of what storytelling is suppose to be.

And Mink, right?! It's like the everyday conversation:

"Where's your husband?"

"Oh, he's babysitting the kids."

Because men aren't naturally capable of parenting, so they're only a babysitter?

I definitely don't think that Angelina is trying to imply men are inherently evil and women are not, but there are a ton a failed academics, politicians, sociologists, psychologists and philosophers that going into college teaching as a fallback career and propagate bad ideas such as this one (not to mention other ones like humanity is a virus that destroys anything it touches or that charitable donations aren't good enough, we have to levy a 50, 60 or even 70% tax on anyone living outside of poverty to end poverty) that led to their original career failure in the first place.

@Tanman: you're kind of twisted, bud, and I seriously doubt you'd think rape was all that "awesome" if you were the one being sexually assaulted.

Perhaps we should send you to prison so you can find out first hand the joy of having some stinking loser shoving his slimy d*ck into your yawning orifices.

On the other hand, you might like that.

lol.

You're a sick, sick person, Tanman.


God help us all if they do a rape scene in Planes 2.

I can just imagine it. The 767 ramming its fuselage up the aileron of some Cessna 172.
