Oh my god I feel the exact same way! I couldn’t have said it better. When people find out I love her they always ask me why I love her followed by numerous ignorant accusations (the best part is that think they’re so educated about her omg). It does get annoying that I have to explain myself when I shouldn’t have to. I really have to bring myself to stay calm and try to have an intelligent conversation about her. I also noticed I can’t just have a quick, pleasant conversation about her and call it a day—I have to talk about her whole life for them to understand why and how her image today is nothing like who she really was. I love talking about Marilyn but not when I feel like I’m wasting my time with someone who doesn’t care what I have to say and for some crazy reason they still think they’re right—that just makes me angry!
I agree with you. Their careers were solely based on being “the next Marilyn” when Marilyn left Fox.
People are so ignorant that I can’t help but laugh at them. If they could only open a book or do some in-depth research about Marilyn, then they’d feel awful for thinking such negative things about her. I don’t like the word “slut” or anything similar to it because I don’t think it’s fair to label anybody based on who or how many people they sleep with considering it’s no one’s business—but Marilyn did not sleep around (and she didn’t sleep with anyone to get roles either!) as people like to think. On multiple occasions she spoke very angrily about “wolves” (men only interested in sex). Marilyn is truly a wonderful inspiring woman—if other people don’t want to find out for themselves then I feel sorry for them! They’re missing out on all the love and joy of Marilyn!
