1. She was banging a guy for money, so that's kind of slutty by definition? 2. I don't know. A depiction is just one presentation of how people are, it's inherently biased. Sounds like none of these people were very good people, tbh. 3. I'd choose the rich guy. He clearly doesn't have a problem with me sleeping around, and stability is good
She didn't sleep with guys for money, the 2 men fighting over her her, wikipedia goes deeper on this part for a little bit which is why I didn't mention it on the OP. She was forced to be with the fat guy against her will, she can't fight him because her family forced her to marry the fat guy after the fat guy deceived the woman's family to think that the womanizer, her husband died in the war, but when the womanizer got back, he claimed his right over her as her true husband, while the fat guy claimed his right over her as her current husband. So I think the proper situation is she's being tossed around, has she been raped by the 2 guys? Yes, the scene where the womanizer raped her was glorified for some reason.
1) No. If anything, she's the opposite of a slut, taking her time to choose the right man instead of hopping in bed with her first impulse. Though really don't see how this is a relevant question to the story. Even if she is a slut, what right does anybody have to punish her for the things she does with her own body? 2) A fair depiction is an honest one. So maybe Khun Chang is a scheming, manipulative pig. Maybe Khun Phaen is a god of seduction. If that's how the artist or author interpreting them believes those characters are, then portraying them as such as fair. Setting them up or portraying them in a way that doesn't present an obvious moral aesop isn't wrong or unfair. It's realistic. Real life doesn't always present us an obvious right or wrong decision. 3) I'd choose somebody else entirely. Neither of those men are all that great.
Do you think the woman is a slut? Why/why not? Please explain.
Was she in a monogamous relationship with either of these guys? If she was, she was cheating, but if not I don't see why who she decides to sleep with has any bearing on her character. If both parties are adult, consenting, and safe, them having sex is their business. If she was cheating, then she's a pretty awful person, but I wouldn't call her a slut for enjoying sex.
-Do you think the depictions of the main characters fair? Why/why not? Please explain.
No because everyone involved has been reduced to a single characteristic. You can turn anyone into a villain if you reduce them to one trait that has no bearing on their actions or beliefs.
This 1 is for the ladies, if you're in the position of the woman, who will you choose? Why/ Why not? Or you'd rather be executed for not choosing & being condemned for generations to come? Please explain?
Honestly, I'd chose neither. The first guy isn't mature nor healthy enough to be in a stable relationship, especially when you throw a child into the mix and the I'm not physically attracted to the other guy. I'm gonna get a lot of flack for saying I wouldn't go with the other guy, but physical attraction is still part of a romantic relationship and if I'm not physically attracted to someone, I'm not going to want to have sex with them. That would put a major strain on the relationship. I would sooner leave that kingdom with the child and find someplace where I don't have to worry about people telling me what I can and can't do with my body since it's none of their business.
I'm glad it was a good idea to post on here, people in this country always answer with a kind of answer teachers want them to, I really love your take on it.
About the monogamous part, unfortunately I have to use assumption whether or not she was monogamous as there are still debates on the current version. As it used to be passed down as a word of mouth, many people tells the story differently. So based on a few books I've actually read myself. It was more like a tug of war, I didn't go too deep on the OP because wikipedia kind of mentioned it a little bit. I have to get to the back story here a bit, the womanizer & the woman already married but then the womanizer went off to war. So the fat guy plot a scheme, tricking the woman's family to believe the womanizer died in the war & the woman were forced to marry the fat guy against her will. So when the womanizer got back (you guessed it, he cheated on his wife while he was away as well), he claimed his right over her as the true husband but the fat guy also claimed his right on her as the current husband. Both side spend a lot of time kidnapping the woman really. But about love & feelings, she only loves the womanizer & all the supporting characters also confirmed this, which is why when the boy grew up he turned against the fat guy. But then again, it was the word of mouth before & I haven't read all the books but based on the ones I've read.
