I hadn't noticed an uptick. It's something I don't look at, having a remote nearby at all times. Curiously, there is a different view in the John
Wayne era. Bosses simply deliver a roundhouse coldcock punch to the next in charge, tear up a bar, then act like it was part of HR etiquette. See
'Hellfighters'. A Women is dragged about, to Alaska, like property, but not against her will, then foisted on a guy up there waiting for the goods,
then it turns in to a love story. 'North to Alaska'? I think. The Quiet Man is one I ought watch again, specifically for rape. There must be one
somewhere in the JW movies. Lots and lots of death defying violence, handed out like kisses before herpes.
Look at the news slant on rape, because I believe you'll find some oddities there. About 10 years ago a rape news story was running that implied that
since it was dark out, and the woman was scantily clad, she'd somehow earned it. It was tucked inside the lines, but it was there. People were
arguing about it, and I think it was a pitch for tasers in civilian hands, indirectly.
Worse than rape, I suppose, if you like movies, many times the woman is literally a property. Soylent Green comes to mind.
On the bed, eh?
-Charleton Heston as Inspector Thorn
Again, a love story emerges where the man has absolute power over the woman. The women don't dissent this, unless rich, I suppose. No rich women
shown in the Soylent film.
Yes...as sinister as it sounds, economic woes do seem to cause to flourish a sex trade environment, and the 'rape' prevalence might be a conscious
media decision in order to pander it. Some believe the media is a reflection of society. I believe that the media forms us, generally, and feed on the
whirlwind they create. When all factions (of the media) are involved, working together, then the news will help out in making it seem more present.
Lots of people do profit from the environment of ugliness on sex.
So watch for how rape is presented on the local news, see if there's anything a little off about the delivery. Every word you hear from the media is
carefully pre-scripted and rehearsed.
