New Wave Feminists posted a gorgeous symbol of Marilyn, along the caption in regards to the sexist Hugh Hefner, writing:
“This is Marilyn Monroe.
Maybe you will have heard of her or noticed different footage?
She was a human being.
She was born the similar yr as 91-year-old Hugh Hefner who died this week.
She married at 16 years outdated to get away the foster care device. A couple of years later, whilst making an attempt to wreck into modeling and appearing, she posed for some nude calendar pictures to earn some meals cash. She was paid $50 to take her garments off and smile.
She used a faux title to try to distance herself from the pictures.
‘I do not know why, apart from I could have sought after to give protection to myself. I was apprehensive, embarrassed, even ashamed of what I had executed, and I did not need my title to seem at the fashion unlock.’
A couple of years later she was given her large wreck and began taking part in eye sweet in movement footage. Hugh Hefner was construction his emblem. When he determined to get started his ‘gentleman’s mag,’ Marilyn Monroe had turn out to be a family title. Hefner purchased the rights to her previous pictures from the girlie calendar people for $500.
Without asking the actress, Hugh Hefner put her at the duvet of his first factor which learn ‘First time in any mag, FULL COLOR, the well-known Marilyn Monroe NUDE.’
When requested about it, Monroe had this to say:
‘I by no means even won a thank-you from all those that made hundreds of thousands off a nude Marilyn . I even had to purchase a replica of the mag to see myself in it.’
The device did its paintings on Marilyn Monroe, and he or she died at age 36 after being digested via the tradition that fed on her. She died with cash however now not so much. More cash has been made via her emblem since her dying; even nowadays you’ll see Monroe merchandise being hawked.
Then in 1992 the grave next to Marilyn got here up on the market, and Hefner bought it for himself, gloating within the standing that he could be her everlasting bedmate.
Dead Marilyn made no remark.
Fifty-five years useless, and now the Playboy is about to pull up the sheets of her tomb and move slowly on in.
Hugh and Marilyn by no means met.
She by no means consented to anything else, from nude pictures in Playboy to everlasting bedfellows, as a result of he by no means requested; he by no means even stated hi.
The lady who appeared her complete existence for romance . . . finally ends up with Hef. The guy who spent his complete existence ignoring the humanity of ladies and having his approach finally ends up lauded a civil rights hero.
I do not know that any tale defines this asshole greater than this one.
Rest in Power, Norma Jean.”
