This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness' 

when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.

-sigh- Im sick of anxiety.  I haven’t been able to fall asleep in days.  And while I acknowledge that there is a whole laundry list of reasons my issues are at a peak again,  I’m having a much much harder time than usual trying to pick myself up out of it. It’s 2:30am and everyone is sound asleep.  I cleaned the whole house and am just sitting here with the weight of an elephant on my chest.  I remember this from years ago when I used to have to take sleep medicine every night because otherwise id go half a week without sleep.  Blah.  Someone fix me lol
