!!! I actually went to the Fassfans link in that last post and it actually explained how Keira handled it.
Executing the spanking scenes: “There was a box which he hit, so he was nowhere near me, thank God! I did actually say to Michael before one of the scenes — I was like, ‘I’ve got a security guard outside. You touch me and he’s gonna break your legs!’ And he was like, ‘Keira, you’re tied to a bed. You’re not really in a position to say that.’ I said, ‘I guess you’re right.’… [I did] a couple of shots of vodka — definitely — beforehand, and then a couple of glasses of champagne as a celebration of never having to do that again!”
[From The Hollywood Reporter]
Jesus H. THAT is my new happy place, imagining Michael Fassbender saying, “You’re tied to a bed. You’re not really in a position to say that.” DEAR GOD. I don’t understand women like Keira. How can she do those scenes without rolling over and begging Michael to take her roughly against the period canopy bed in front of God, David Cronenberg and assorted Teamsters?
- These are quotes from the article. Emphasis mine because… uh, wow.
God forbid a woman is not comfortable with those scenes. She even called up the writers beforehand and was going to turn them down BECAUSE of those scenes. So, you know, I think she’s well within her rights to show discomfort and Fassbender is not within his rights to jokingly emphasise that she’s “tied up to a bed”. Way to be comforting, dick.
Wanna know how…. EASY! SHE DOESN’T WANT HIM!
This stuff right here this entirely, power hungry political alignment masquerading as romantic/sexual submission or kink
Because really what their saying is
” Oh my god !! He’s so hot and in and powerful right now. And he’ll use it ON YOU!! YOU GET TO BE CLOSE TO THE POWER !!!!!! And because your magical ( usually white) nether regions can entice ANY POWER into you
YOU ARE POWERFUL
HOW CAN YOU NOT WANT POWER KIERA!?!?!?!
Where is a pretty deep feminist analysis of what sounds like a woman having to ” lie back and think of England” because some dude thought it was funny to make it none he could HAVE NO RESPECT FOR HER BOUNDARIES IF HE SO CHOSE! Like needing to drink to numb herself and drink after to get through
CAUSE HE’S POWERFUL?!?!
But if a woman CHOOSES to be with someone they don’t approve of …
And let’s not forget, please, that Michael Fassbender is an abuser of women. Michael Fassbender is an abuser of women. Repeat it as often as necessary to understand it. This is a man who has no problem physically hurting women in his real life, if I’d been Keira Knightley I wouldn’t have filmed a scene like that with this man for all the money in the world.
