Some days ago, an interesting piece from Daily Mail UK about Linda Lovelace and this blog entry caught my attention and prompted me to write about the Lovelace issue here. With news that two Linda Lovelace biopics (with one where Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard will be playing Lovelace and Traynor respectively and the other with Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon respectively) are made, I was prompted to read further about this woman who gained both notoriety and fame long before I was born and whose life was tragically cut short when I had already left high school. As a blogger, I have to say the more I read about Lovelace, the more sympathy I have for a woman like her who could have deserved better than have herself exploited, abused and ruined all no thanks to the one person who did that to her: Chuck Traynor. Again, I cannot help but wonder what if her life could have turned out very differently if she did not cross paths with a monster called Chuck Traynor. Then again, nobody knows.
As a blogger, all I can say is that Chuck Traynor has been long gone dead and he is definitely a horrible monster who deserves to have his grave danced on or better yet have his grave descerated and vandalised (just my wishful thinking). Why? Because this man will and always be remembered as the one who exploited and profited from an ill-gotten hardcore porn movie called Deep Throat which should not be made in the first place. Men like Chuck Traynor not only should never deserve any ounce of respect but also they should be condemned as scum of society that are lower than the dirt on the ground. Therefore, I would like to ask this question: If they consider that to be acceptable to exploit and coerce women like Lovelace to make something as disgusting and horrid like Deep Throat, how would they like it if their own sisters and daughters by their boyfriends or husbands would be exploited, coerced and violated into doing the same thing? I will say this once: no woman or girl deserves this sort of treatment.
Anyway, as far I have read or heard Deep Throat was made when Lovelace was coerced and abused into making it by Traynor and what is even sadder to note is that a monster like him had the gall to profit from something so low and vile (I hope he is burning in hell right now for that). If Traynor is alive today, you can bet on the fact that he would be hounded, hurled insults and getting threats of being pounded to a pulp daily by those who do not condone what he did to Lovelace. Last but not least, he deserves to be called a monster for the rest of eternity. Before I go any further all I can say is that hardcore pornography only creates an unrealistic view for people to think it is acceptable for women to be objectified and treated as sex objects.
What says you about the Linda Lovelace issue? Do you believe more things can be done to tackle this? Do you believe there should be stop against hardcore porn? Opinions are welcome
