this movie, "The Magdalene Sisters"
was extremely, but very, very triggering.
And I don't know why.
Any camera pointed at my face
would have registered, in my eyes, a very exaggerated tragedy, an inability to comprehend the cruelty of one person against another,
a father against a daughter, the torturous realities of being made ashamed that you were raped. And the boy? He hanged himself ... which is a good thing, only the father, he Blamed his daughter, who was a completely innocent victim of a heinous crime ... and he should have loved her and supported her and been Glad that the "boy" who raped his daughter, who did this to her, at least felt some kind of shame for what he did. For what he did, was Terrible.
And what the father did, was terrible. Terrible to behold, and to hear, and the pain of being a new mother and having your newborn child torn from your arms and given away, never to know this child, never to nurse this one with your breasts, which are bursting and hurting, and the indignity of suffering agonizing pain because of mammary gland inflamation and infection, and possibly even dying of it, and so many other things besides, all because of a lack of Caring, a lack of Care, a lack of Love in the world .. the patronizing, paternal world.
F*ck them. F*ck them all, and not in the nice way.
This should NEVER have happened.
But it did.
To very, very many of us. Some of it, all of it, more of it ... I don't know ... I only know it sits there, it's there in my heart, and watching this movie was almost more than I could bear.
