Women are not grateful to men. They are incapable of love. They have 'mother's instinct', which means they can drop any emotional compassion they might be able to otherwise feign, they can drop any 'caring' or whatnot at any time they want.
Mother's instinct is basically a way for women to become completely uncaring, in order to protect their wombturds the most effectively against possible attackers (think of a female bear, if you touch her cubbies - will that bear feel empathy towards you? NO.)
Anyone who trusts a woman, is a fool. Even if that woman turns out to have been trustworthy, it's still a dangerous game, because even that trustworthy woman COULD have turned in a second, if the circumstances so demanded (or she thought they did, or she just got that sudden, crazy whimsy that women often want men to protect women from -- women actually have asked men to protect women from their own whims! Think about that for awhile).
Having anything more to do with women than is absolutely necessary, especially getting hitched, getting married, 'dating', having sex with them, etc. is like blindly choosing from a box of grenades one, and pulling the pin. Now, it MAY not explode (or explode much later), but only a fool would do it. Women are hand grenades, especially nowadays, when a pointing female finger and a couple of words is enough to land an innocent man in jail for years. (Especially with crocodile tears in court)
The vietnamese character in this movie was just a typical woman, executing the typical, man-shaming agenda, where you hide things from your husband, and seek gratification elsewhere, but keep exploiting that well-meaning, faithful man without caring about his feelings.
I completely agree with all your points, and all the fools on this thread should also. But they wouldn't be fools, if they did.. (it takes a lot to see the truth, as you obviously do, original poster).
May I also remind that she was also a MURDERER and a FILTHY PROSTITUTE-WHORE and a slut.
Just because she wears white clothes, and has a cute accent, doesn't mean her vagjay hasn't been pummeled by a thousand cócks.
Remember, this book was written by the reality-version of that character herself. Of course she's going to cast herself on the best possible light, and so when she has to admit having prostituted, it's handled with such silk gloves that I wanted to spew. Maybe Oliver Stone even whitewashed it a bit more.
Yeah, she felt SOO bad, because she's not REALLY a prostitute, (instead of feeling good for the poor young men, who never get any, and who will probably be murdered soon - she should be GLAD to have an opportunity to help them in a way that doesn't even cost her anything!) and when she did that _ONE_ case of prostitution, it was for her BABY, and the boys were really CLEAN and yeah, right.
Doesn't anyone else smell a rat when they see garbage like this?
So, you are completely correct. This hag was:
- Man-shaming (victim-shaming, even)
- Egotistical and proud
Instead of helping her husband, she shames him and barks at him, like she owns the world all of the sudden. She should have a little HUMILITY, for crying out loud.
Yeah, the actor is pretty, and it's easy to feel sympathy for her, and especially the WAY the story is told, makes her an 'innocent victim' that we should all pity for the whole duration of the movie.
And her citchen-pseudophilosophy in the end is so corny, audiences should throw this movie back to the stupid hag's and Oliver Stone's face. As if anyone wants a war, or considers such fights worth trying to win. It completely ignores the real forces in the world that cause wars and such, and such superficial 'cool-souding' wannabe-philosophy is not going to change anything.
Women can't help being what they are any more than scorpions can. They WILL shame you, if you don't conform to THEIR ideal of what a man should be. They don't give a shít about your sensitivity, creativity, humanity or any good sides. They don't care what you have offered them, they won't be grateful.
They only want to know why you aren't conforming to their ideal.
What's wrong with living with your parents, no matter what age you are? There are whole CULTURES, where MULTIPLE GENERATIONS live in the same house (ironically, these cultures are sometimes asian). No one goes doing this shaming there. So why should it be practiced elsewhere?
Culture is a human construct, if we can't treat each other like human beings outside those constructs, there's nothing worth saving on this planet.
I would definitely have stayed far away from that snake-hag - she may have been pretty, but that's the only 'good' thing about her. Pity that she exploited even that, just to gain material wealth and exploited good men just to use them as ladders to climb to wealth and power. Or why else would she had created that business so secretively?
You can bet that this story was much more brutal in real life, and the hag in question was even more witchy than the movie shows. And more men were hurt by this hag than shown in the movie.
Now, some of the points about the guns may be good (guns shouldn't even exist, as their only purpose is to murder, and murder is already unlawful - some day, animal murder will also be unlawful).
But she was basically elevated from a toilet world into a relatively civilized place, and all she can do is shoot down her rescuer!
The original poster is correct, but not delving deep enough into how horrible this hag really is.
LOL, good one, troll
