Thanks so much for having this conversation--the Monroe film sounds truly horrific and just disgusting--but I'm glad that having to witness part of that horror show prompted you to write this--the representations are so important to call out and to understand what tropes are being perpetuated by them. Thanks again for writing it.

Yes! Couldn’t watch more than 5 minutes, but was thankful for Steph’s analysis.

Can we talk about the abortion scene in Portrait of a Lady on Fire?? Because it’s by far the most beautiful abortion scene I’ve ever seen.
