This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'

"He’s essentially obsessed with Patsey." — Michael Fassbender on his character Edwin Epps

"Patsey is a young slave girl on Master Epps plantation. She is the object of the master’s affection and cruelty. He’s madly in love with her and he takes it out on her violently." — Lupita Nyong’o on her character

"Lupita [Nyong’o] is a complete newcomer. Straight out of drama school and so bright and so poised and prepped. Is really impressive." — Michael Fassbender

"It was a dream come true to get to work with Michael [Fassbender] on my first film. What gets captured on camera is what it’s actually happening in the scene, so he’s terrifying but he’s also really a gentle person in real life, which made it safe to do the things I had to do with him." — Lupita Nyong’o


she needs to. read enslaved women narratives … if that was love .. you need to redefine what it means .. cause none of our ancestors were experiencing love. from Masters

That is not love. It is rape, manipulation and abuse and I am tired of people sugar coating the amount of rape, mutilation and abuse Black women suffered at the hands of white men (and white women, who would abuse the slave women after they were raped by the slave owners and overseers, and even more so if they bore the child of their rapist.)

Black women had no legal protection. They were not even seen as human beings. Stop this bullshit

People need to read Kindred and stop deluding themselves about the realities of how shit really goes down.

If this was “love”, why did Epps viciously whip Patsey for leaving the plantation to get a bar of soap because his evil, racist wife restricted her from having soap for bathing.  

Why did he repeatedly rape her to the point where she asked Solomon to help her commit suicide.

This isn’t love, it’s abuse. 

Stop romanticizing the abuse Black women suffered at the hands of white men.
