So the other night I watched Lovelace, which I’ve been excited about for ages. However it kinda destroyed my day and probably life as I can’t get the sad thoughts away. It amazingly captured how an innocent girl was pushed into the pornography world via her horrible, sexist, misogynistic husband who even made he have sex with other men so he could spend the money on cocaine. But mainly it taught me how our society used to look at women as not almost human but something that could be used over and over until it’s no good anymore. Until it’s too broken to perform. A woman was something that had no value except when she’d take her clothes off so men could make money out of it. And that was all. In the movie we learn how it’s not just men, it’s also the typical religious women. When Linda tells her mother that her husband abuses her her mother advises her to “obey” her husband, making her believe it’s all her fault. And these ideas have been growing bigger and wider in the society just changing their shapes. However Linda Boreman (Lovelace’s real name) ends up being an iconic feminist figure who spent the rest of her life being an anti pornography activist the 17 days she spent in porn ended up defining her until now. Another example of no matter what you do or who you become society sees you as what they prefer you to be.
