So why does /tv/ hate this character?
1) She's a baby boomer
2) She's a dirty hippie and proto-SJW
3) She manipulates Forrest for years before she finally decides to abandon her soulless, hedonistic lifestyle and settle down with him. While Forrest was shooting at Vietcong, meeting with presidents and famous people and shrimping with Lt. Dan she was fucking, sucking and snorting her own brains out.
4) She died of AIDS and only faggots die of AIDS.
I think it's pretty heavily implied it's his kid.
Just one last poke in the eye for poor Forrest though, making him raise a kid by himself who will die of AIDs or whatever fucking disease she had. Seriously fuck Jenny.
His son didn't seem retarded in anyway so there's a very small chance it was actually his. It's been a while since I watched too but I don't think the timeline matches up between Forrest fucking Jenny and Jenny giving birth to her bastard offspring.
stop the slut shaming you disgusting /pollacks
reddit gives me HOPE IN HUMANITY
I mean, I used to hate her too, but how she acted actually makes sense. She was sexually abused by her father when she was too young to understand sex. She was in love with Forrest, but she also understood that he was slow. She equated her relationship with Forrest to abuse, because she felt he didn't understand love. In the end, she realizes that Forrest may be dumb, but love is simple enough that he understands it.
I hated Jenny until I was about 30.
Actually, I still hate her.
Everyone is always quick to forget that she had been diddled by her drunk abusive father for years, and forest was the only nice person to her.
Naturally, she developed feelings for him, but as she grew and learned how truly fucked the things her dad did to her were, she got the feeling that if she was with forest, she would be no better than her dad - because forest was retarded and she didnt want to take advantage.
>diddled by her drunk abusive father for years
such a nice SJW angle to the story
women are flawless, faultless queens who can only ever be mean, evil and messed up if they have an abusive father
men are just naturally evil bro
Not SJWing here.
Jenny was a proper cunt. She'd still probably have been a counter-culture drugslut - but every time she has a chance to stop and be with forest, shes reminded he's retarded, and hooking up with him would make her a sexual predator.
She's fine being a victim, she doesn't want to be evil.
I'm not sure she views herself as a "predator". Seemed like she always thought she deserved better and wanted to get out from that shit town with shit memories, and Forest was just a bumbling retard who always reminded her of home.
Goddamnit she just represents the Sexual Revolution (and its tragic consequences)
Every character in the damn book/movie is a metaphor. Forrest Gump is just an allegorical social history of the Baby Boomer experience
/tv/ doesn't hate her exactly, they're just royally pissed she's got AIDS so they can't rape her properly.
Nah, she never even once thought about Forrest's feelings. She used him as an emotional safeguard, someone she could keep abandoning and rejoicing. She finally settled down after being diagnosed with a fatal disease. How fucking convenient, huh? Being abused in her childhood is no excuse
>a few years ago
>forrest gump on tbs or something
>roommate turns it on about 30 minutes in
>i'd never seen it before
>think that forrest and jenny are siblings
>later in the movie
>roommate says something about them fucking
>i joke about him taking it too far with the incest jokes
>wait they're not siblings?
>WAIT YOU'VE NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE?
Wait, the son has AIDS?
Except that 'retard' has a college degree, all America honors, and a Medal of Honor.
At no point ever, would it be considered 'abuse'. Your supposed to just hate the character. Stop reading into movies like all the fags at this site tend to do
