“Where I come from, where your mother comes from, we didn’t talk about our bodies. So when something like this happened there was no language for it. And without language for it, there was a gaping silence. And in that gaping silence was the real horror.” ~From the movie “Women Talking”

The movie “Women Talking” is about the true story of a group of women living in the Mennonite colony of Manitoba in Bolivia. For years, the women in this colony endured nightly physical and sexual abuse from a group of men living within their community. These women were denied their voice by the male leaders within the colony who insisted that the assaults were being committed by ghosts, Satan himself, or that the stories the women were entertaining were simply “wild feminine imaginings” or hallucinations.

Take a moment and think about the type of evil dominion these men were carrying out against these women. Not only were these men violating these women’s bodies with nonconsensual sexual relations by using an anesthetic sprayed in their face during sleep to render them unconscious, an anesthetic used for cattle, so they couldn’t see the men’s faces, but they then used a form of perspecticide or gaslighting by making them doubt themselves and the experiences they were having on a regular nightly basis.

There are eerie similarities to this nightmarish tale and the narratives of Targeted Individuals.

It wasn’t until 2009, when one of the victims woke up during the assault and got a good look at two of the perpetrators. There were nine men, seven of eight men were found guilty by a Bolivian legal court and a ninth eluded capture.

It would have been awful no matter where this event occurred, but the fact that it happened in a place where individuals have cut themselves off to modern society and ascribed to a life of pacifism as a main tenant in their faith, made the case even stranger. Could men with a similar psychological makeup be committing similar forms of violence with modern technology?

Women Talking has explained to us, in scary detail, how women speak when living in a place that denies them a voice. These women met in secret, hidden away from the knowledge of their husbands, and they were communicating with each other. To complicate matters, none of the women spoke English and none of them knew how to read or write.

The connections to this form of violence and domination used on these women and the violence and domination in wireless electronic assaults and torture within the phenomenon of Targeted Individuals is precisely the same, the use of a clandestine medium that renders the victim unaware of what’s happening. In the case of the women of this colony it was a cattle anesthetic. In the case of Targeted Individuals it is wireless electronic assaults using radio frequency. More commonly termed psychotronic torture and voice to skull technology where radio frequency is used during the physical and sexual assaults. And the population of Targeted Individuals are composed of both men and women.

In the movie, the women discuss forgiveness, forgiving the violence their male contemporaries extended to them. But the issue of permission arose when it was believed that if they forgave them the men might confuse forgiveness with permission. And if that occurred, what was to stop them from continuing the violence? So too with wireless electronic assaults and torture when the authorities don’t help or can’t help the victims because issues of transparency and clarity arise. In short, permission is granted to the perpetrators because there is nothing stopping them. There exists no recourse or consequences to their actions.

The promise of this film’s story is a world where women’s stories can be heard free from the specter of patriarchy that wishes silent, chaste, obedience from the other.
