A Handmaid's Tale

Going to cut to the chase here. This could have been called "A 'Vision Of Donald Trump's World In The Future' Tale".

Bloody horrible existance. Welcome to Saudi Arabia.  
Have you been watching "A Handmaid's Tale"? It is very good. Well acted. You know all the usual stuff, the sets are well lit. The sound is good. These are things you take for granted but they need alot of work in television and film production. What else is important? Hmmm... Well the continuity is good. You know what continuity is? That is when someone is for example holding a cup in, lets say, their right hand in a scene, the camera cuts away from them and then back to them and all of a sudden they are holding the cut in their left hand. You know? What else is important?

Hmmm.

Well set costumes are important. All the clothes look well, Gives a certain look and feel to the program. A feeling of doom and utter hopelessness. A feeling that everything is shit in this world and that there is no hope for anyone. Wait a second, this is reminding me of one more thing that I have left out of my "what makes a good TV or Movie" list.

Yes, that's it. The story. You know like a quality story. Not like Eastenders or Home and Away story. I mean a real story that actually has something to say. Like real meaning kind of stuff. So I don't want to give too many spoilers away so if you do not want any spoilers look away now... go to another webpage. Close this tab on your browser and go elsewhere. Go on....

If your still reading. Ask yourself this. What countries support female genital mutilation? What countries is it illegal to be gay in? Would you visit these countries? Would you support their governments? Support their economies? Well I did some research.


Here is a link to the Wiki page on the trendy FGM...
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_genital_mutilation

Percentage of the 15–49 group who have undergone FGM in 29 countries for which figures were available in 2016


How about countries that are illegal to be gay in? Lets look into that....

(going away doing some research...)

  1. Yemen
  2. Iran
  3. Mauritania
  4. Nigeria
  5. Qatar
  6. Saudi Arabia
  7. Afghanistan
  8. Somalia
  9. Sudan
  10. United Arab Emirates
Boy oh boy... scary isn't it. Saudi Arabia... UAE. These are countries that we trade with! These are countries that America have done massive arms deals with lately. USA have signed an arms deal worth $110 billion with SA that will increase to around $350 billion in the coming years (click here for link). You telling me that a man as crazy as Trump might not make the Handmaid's tale come true?

I love the series A Handmaid's Tale so much because I hate the point of the story of the Handmaid's tale so much.
Existence is horrible for 100's of millions of women because of religion.
If you are not watching A Handmaid's Tale already, watch it now I would advise. Link to the IMDB page is below.
