A Review of the Movie “Speak”


The video, “Stolen Innocence” by Courtney Parker, certainly tells the story of the horror of rape. Right now I’m communicating with a victim of sexual abuse of monstrous proportions. She was just an innocent child who fell into a brutal situation. Now, years later, I pray she continues growing after her ordeal.
****
A different movie title, for sure, but very appropriate. Kristen Stewart, age 25, plays the lead role, Melinda, as a selective mute, in the 2005 movie, “Speak.”Melinda appears in the first scene vacantly looking in the mirror. Her top seems to be torn, maybe, and her lipstick is…well, she ferociously rubs at it. She’s upset about something, no doubt. Her mother enters, says something, but, no help there.
A following scene shows her riding in a car, leaning out the window backwards, letting her hair blow, just a young girl having fun with a bunch of friends heading to a party. She deserves fun, right? After all, she’s young and fully alive.
Another scene shows her meeting a boy. That’s what young people do at parties, right? They meet members of the opposite sex. Many girls–probably most–just want to have fun. With boys…well, boys can sometimes have something different in mind. (An important note here: so often a girl is accused of dressing provocatively and “asking” for it. Melinda in this scene could not have been dressed more innocently. So, the truth, as I see it, some men will prey on certain women/girls/children no matter what.)
Melinda goes with this boy into the …shadows—and why shouldn’t she? She’s a young girl; she wants to have fun. A kiss begins the fun, then the kiss comes a little stronger until the boy suggests they get even more private. Melinda says she should tell her friends, but, well, the boy wants to go now…so she goes with him, to his vehicle, and the kiss continues until it becomes so strong that she starts to try to stop, and says “No!” more than once.
But there’s no stopping him now.
The rape happens.
Soon we see Melinda walking home, it’s night, and the pain, the anger, the depression, the embarrassment, and the utter loneliness of a rape victim begins.
She just wanted to have a little fun, and became a ‘selective mute’ instead. And what is that? A person so humiliated, embarrassed, depressed, that she didn’t want to talk to or see anybody. Think of the courage it took to even go to school….
****
The events didn’t happen in the order I described them. The movie jumps around quite a bit, but it’s also quite easy to follow and to know what’s happening. I don’t know how soon Melinda’s first day at high school happens, but when it happens she’s not ready. Each step she takes now, she is so aware of the not-understanding world that can sometimes close in on her with no warning.
The bus arrives. The driver looks at her, vacantly. (And of course he has no idea how she’s feeling.) She meets another girl, and even though Melinda says very little, they do become…“best” friends, and that might be the most heartbreaking scene in the movie, when that girl explains to Melinda that they can’t be friends anymore, and even makes a crude attempt at explaining why.
So that girl becomes her “ex” best friend.
I’m not going to describe the whole movie. There’s lots more characters to appear, some good, some bad, and at least one teacher becomes especially good. He gives Melinda—without being obvious—what she needs: encouragement, that she can do.
Some kids bullied Melinda, others ignored her, sometimes they pointed at least toward her leaving no doubt what they meant, others tried to humiliate her, but nobody actually physically “hurt” her, well, other than the rape. The rape hurt her badly, very badly, but she survived it.
My bottom line here is that I can identify with that girl, what she went through those early months in high school. Nobody hurt me, teased me, bullied me, nothing, but I witnessed other kids—friends—getting bullied and hurt and humiliated, and I didn’t help them. (I still have those past mind pictures as if happening yesterday, and the memory: I did not help them.)

In this second video, a love song from the movie “Twilight” “Stay With Me” by Danity Kane, Kristein stewart looks a bit happier, and the guy looks a bit nicer, but having seen none of the “Twilight” series, I of course don’t know. We’ll hope.

Post 3 of 3 “Daughters” Book 5 “Sorority Animal House” coming soon


This first video is interesting; some sorority girls seem to think it’s all a big joke, but some others don’t sound all that turned on by sororities, and dare to say what they want…I guess, as long as it’s anonymous….
****
Daughters is the continuing series based on the fact of human trafficking in America.

Emma is the strong female lead begun in Book 1 at the age of 18 when she was raped, beat up and sold into prostitution. In Book 5, she is 22, finished with college, a bona fide social worker, well versed in criminal justice, and is earning a black belt in Taekwondo. She has partnered with Jacey Wendell, a young lady attorney. Together they will specialize in helping victims of human trafficking. They barely have their new shingle hung at their office in Abundance, Montana, and their online website posted when four young ex-sorority women appear. Their stories will open a very dark and secret door about some Sororities.
Two characters with viewpoint besides Emma:
Brandi represents the innocence of so many young people—boys and girls both—as every autumn they head for colleges across America for the first time.
Ariana represents the pent-up embarrassment, anger, frustration—and pure rage—that has simmered, waiting for the new crop of pledges and her turn at carrying out the Sorority House Initiation Ritual!

Continuing from Post 2 of 3…from the other three videos, here’s partially what I saw:
From two to six girls are completely naked. Completely! Not one square inch of body is off-limits to the camera. Not one! The faces of some those naked girls show revulsion, embarrassment, and heartbreaking sadness as they are put through their rites. As I said, some even try to cover their nakedness…but they soon will be beat down and will do exactly what they are told.
A sort of ‘Stockholm Syndrome?’ I suppose.
They know the camera is rolling. Some even look toward it, and then the emotions on their faces double and triple…so they know it’s rolling, but do they know it’s going online for the whole world to see? For their parents to see? Boyfriends? Siblings? Friends? I doubt it, but they are there, so what are they to do? Refuse to participate? Some probably do. I hope so.
Those giving the orders, the sociopathic dominatrices, give detailed instructions of what the girls are to do to each other and to themselves and to accept what others do to them. I won’t describe here, but in my upcoming Book 5, yes, I will.
A dozen or more spectator perverts/whatever are just watching, laughing, oohing and ahhhhing…and definitely guilty by association. Guilty? Yes! I would like to see all their asses kicked and thrown in jail for how they can treat innocent young women. These are all (perpetrators, spectators, victims) good-looking, gorgeous young women. The new ‘littles,’ as they are called (their so-called sisters are called ‘bigs’) are maybe away from home for the first time, gone to a university where they thought they would be safe to learn, to reach for their goals. In fact, why would they even consider whether or not they would be safe—from other women, for Christ’s sake?!
So then begins the lure of belonging to a sorority. Maybe they have dreamed for years of joining one of those Greek-inspired…whatever the hell they are!
Again, I doubt the porn studios could recruit that many young good-looking girls to perform in those videos, so, I’m pretty sure it’s some (again clarifying the word ‘some’) sororities themselves doing it.
If I had a daughter, and learned the university she was attending allowed, by ignorance and apathy, such a thing to occur in order for her to join a sorority…well, I maybe should not even think of what I would do, for certain not detail it here.
Why do they do it? Why do those giving the orders put the new girls through such horror? Likely, the very same thing was done to them the year before, and they are just getting back at the new kids. For one year they have experienced and suppressed PTSD. (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) It’s a cycle that needs to stop!
At the end, yes, guys (and some hardass women) create a ton—10 tons—100 tons—of pornography constantly. So why am I complaining about some gorgeous young women creating just a little? Because they are women! (Again, the so-called gentler half of our species) using innocent other young women who just wanted to join a sorority and who probably didn’t understand what they were getting into.
How is this related to my series on human trafficking? Can the girls/women directing and participating in those videos be called human traffickers? Yes! Absofreakinglutely!
Yes, the naked girls in those videos were there by choice…or were they? Maybe the ‘littles’ just quietly trusted their big sister ‘bigs’ to have their best interests in mind, and just kept naively following instructions until it was—basically—too late to stop….

From here to the last video is material I shared last time; I believe it bears repeating:
In Book 5 of my “Daughters” series, Brandi, the innocent, says, “Little girls are some of the cutest, sweetest, most charming and loveable creatures on earth. I don’t know how they can grow up to become vicious, sadistic, beasts!”
****
Yes, Brandi is a fictional character. I wrote what she said. But had she been real, and I have no doubt there are countless college girls–if subjected to such treatment–would say the same, and I would so, so, agree with them.
In the end, it unfortunately appears that impressionable (and that’s the key: ‘impressionable’) young girls can be lead (not only into a pornographic or prostitution situation, and then be sold be someone thought trustworthy) but also can be led by slightly older girls they thought they could trust into a thought-benign initiation ritual. Looking at the expressions on the faces of these young girls (YouTube and online porn both) I highly suspect they had no idea what was coming, and won’t discover they are now porn queens until their turn to do the initiating comes up. (And they’ll be mad as hell if they don’t get to do it!) And who could blame them?
So that’s why I’m including sororities in my human trafficking series. The slightly older girls giving all the orders to those young and innocent girls were girls!–the so-called gentler and more-loving half of our species. It appears women can be worse than men simply because they are that so-called gentler half!
****
In this last video, first, the sound is poor, but what can you expect from complete amateurs? Also, I kept expecting “hoping” that the sensible-looking girl on the far right would tell those sorority queen bitches to get F^*ked and walk away, but, she didn’t, and at the end of the video she started getting naked just like the others, just like she was told.
Yes, I was disappointed.
If you look at the video, there is a site listed that will prove what I’m saying. The site has been there before but I didn’t care to look; I didn’t care to see what I was pretty sure would be there. I hope many young girls thinking of joining a sorority will look and see and learn. I hope mothers will look, and I’d like to ask the girls in those videos, “Would you want your daughter to be abused like this?”
But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe some women do consider sorority hazing as a true rite of passage to womanhood

Post 2 of 3 “Daughters” Book 5 Coming


I looked for a friendlier video to begin this post (like the last one) but couldn’t find. Most are raucous, and at the end always show the new girls ordered to strip. Then the video fades, which leads us into this post.
****
According to some online articles, hazing in general (including sorority house initiation rituals) has been banned (or at least frowned upon) most everywhere. Not so I don’t think. Some sorority houses are not only still doing it, but videotaping and selling to online porn sites. Yes, I will admit it. I’m male. I occasionally look at free online porn. Yes, much of it is free and available to anyone who might stumble across it, as I did a while back, which inspired Book 3 of my series. Yes! Pornography is legal, but the brutality—and outright inhumanity—of most of it turns my stomach! (And BTW, you don’t have to look at the short video to discover the brutality/inhumanity; all you need to decide whether or not you will watch is the very short descriptions and previews.)
How old are the dominatrices in the videos? I don’t know. The few videos I was able to stand watching never really showed the ones doing the talking and directing. The girls being directed, though, were right there, totally naked, some trying to cover themselves, but nothing was off limits to the camera. Their faces showed confusion, embarrassment, horror, even a little fear.
(Some, however, showed no emotion. A few even appeared to be thinking, “Let’s get on with the show!” Oh, yes, and there were female spectators. Lots of them. More about them later.)
Am I absolutely/positively certain some sororities are hazing and selling videos to online porn? No, of course not. How could I be sure of that? But I seriously doubt that online porn studios could/would recruit 3-20 “gorgeous young women” to create just one short video, and then another 3-20 to create another, and another, and another, and on and on! At that one site there are at least a dozen. Maybe many more, because each time one clicks, six more video choices appear. Did I watch them all? Good God, no! An emphatic no! I watched three (enough material for Book 5) but I couldn’t stand to see any more of the sad and unhappy faces of those naked young girls being insulted, ridiculed, and sexually assaulted. YES! Sexually assaulted! In all forms of the word: ASSAULTED!
Why else do I think some sororities are doing what I just described?
One of the few times I could stand to listen to what those sociopathic dominatrices were saying, I actually heard the word ‘sorority,’ more than once. Sure, that word could just have been part of a normal porn script. But I doubt it. There were too many videos and always different girls. (A fourth video I watched included just three girls, the “dominatrix” and the two victims. One victim appeared disgusted more than anything, but did what she was told. The other was hard to describe; she wasn’t happy but appeared to be in learning mode, and also did exactly as told. [Look for a detailed description in Book 5. Even though I felt sorry for those two girls {all of them!} I felt I needed to watch it all and then tell their story as seen through my eyes.
****
The following Youtube video is, to me, disgusting. While watching, my stomach turned into a knot, constantly wondering, “WHY?” Why would those freshman girls subject themselves to such treatment? And those senior girls, they strutted around like they thought they were goddesses on earth–What bitches! (And I hate using that word!) My answer, the seniors were subjected to the same treatment when they were freshmen, and these new freshmen girls, remembering this abuse (some of them) will continue the cycle.
