Thank you for Another Stereotype, America
Despite that this should be by now ordinary to me, I continually becomeamazed when the mainstream American movie industry panders withamazingly clinging loyalty to the the American public their tendency tofanaticize and obsess over the obscene. To translate...
When discussing the grotesque and the macabre, abuse, torture anddestruction of human life, we become most fascinated when such thingsare done in a bizarre fashion. Of course, it only profits to connectthe dots of this fascination to the fetishists. I can't specify enoughnot only how incorrect, but how harmful this is.
I understand how disgusting the American public must find the idea ofS/M, BDSM, and Fetishism. That being said, it is blissfully unaware ofthe simple difference between people who consensually engage in suchacts and those individuals that enjoy abusing victims without anypermission to do so. It sounds so simple, yet is so essential - atevery moment in the movie the berated and obsessed yet righteous agent"uncovers" how his hapless clients like to abuse and sometimes killwomen. The fetishists are intermingled with men who mutilate, rape, andkill women. This is beyond cheap - this is discrimination.
There is a large difference between a woman who wants to be bound andwhipped and a man who is doing this to her, and a man who likes to dothis to women who don't want it. Sadism is a term misused - there is aDIFFERENCE BETWEEN ODD SEXUAL ACTS AND ABUSIVE CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR. Thismovie is an insult to the first amendment rights of every Americancitizen. That being said, this movie breeds ignorance of this. Peoplewho engage in S/M are not child molesters and rapists. Sometimesmolesters and rapists may like some of the S/M pornographic material.However, there are many individuals who engage in S/M, and they have noprior abuse records, no troubled childhoods, and have no intention toharm anyone who doesn't specifically request and agree to it. Yes,masochists find sadists, indeed, need sadists, as the other half oftheir happy perverse existence. Neither breaks the law.
Particularly annoying was when the agent had a consensual couple inpublic this time, leaving it very difficult for him to go on hisviolent paranoid rant, so he chose to annoy and harass them instead,who basically told him to go and sit on it. So, basically, according tothis movie, any abnormal sexual behavior will be persecuted by thestate. What I'd like to know is, what is the point of this people'sjobs? And what are they saying about our rights?
